Hey folks!

I'm Canby, brand new to the board. Stopping through to let you know about a new farming sim game I'm writing for - Sun Haven. The Kickstarter is currently live and we're 60% funded, but we're really pushing for the stretch goals so we can include our Elven Town Nel'Vari. Anyway, I'd appreciate if you read my spiel and checked out the Kickstarter page! If you have questions you can ask me here or head to our discord and ask there! Spiel and links below.

Spiel:
Sun Haven is a multiplayer farm sim and fantasy RPG. While you farm, mine, fish, craft, smith, and cook, you can also engage in an enchanting main quest where you discover your magical ability to grant wishes. On your journey, you have opportunities to settle conflicts peacefully or engage in some platformer-inspired combat if you wish. In all the action though, don't forget to tend your farm and nurture those relationships--use your wish-granting power to improve the town and increase your relationships with the neighbors. And why not take some time to get to know your townsfolk? There are 16 romanceable characters to choose from between two different worlds: the human town Sun Haven and monster town Withergate.

Thanks for taking a look! You're very much appreciated :)

- Michael, Sun Haven Writer

The game will be for PC...are you intending to distribute it via Steam, or in some other way?

The colour palette is gorgeous, and the romance sounds like it'll have some substance to it, which is always a big plus, and rarely encountered. Fulfilling wishes sounds like an interesting focus, and it's nice that you've got the mundane and the magical blended together in this world. I really do love being able to grow both plain old turnips and cotton candy bushes. :) (Not that those are listed as actual crops, but you all know what I mean! Well...unless you don't, lol.)

The candidates look like they come in a good variety, too. Glad your Kickstarter is going well; I hope it proceeds well enough to get you through all your stretch goals!

The game will be out on Steam and we are intending to release it on Switch as well, but that may be delayed if technical issues arise. We're doing our best to make sure it's a simultaneous release though.

And I'm excited about the crops too! One crop will have jumping seeds that grow up into a toothy-looking plant that will actually snap at the player as they pass. Others will attract animals to your farm and stuff like that. We're just trying to make everything fun.

Thanks Kiki and Areli!

I have to say that I just found this topic (thanks KiKi for bumping it up) and my sister and I can't wait for this to come out. Looking forward to it.

No problem, Ronin; saw the link get posted into the 'all farming games' master thread today, and that thread doesn't get checked super often, I don't think (it's easy to miss the stickied posts) so figured it might as well go into its own dedicated thread, now that we can see how well it's doing.

At first I was just going to watch this but I broke down and pledged XD this game looks amazing.
Don’t know what I’m going to do with the extra copy yet but I really wanted a virtual dragon ROFL

Wow that looks really good. Has a Maple Story x Harvest Moon vibe. Will pick it up when it comes to Switch for sure.

Our campaign ended last night at a whopping $85k!! We've raised enough to hire a new artist and make the Elven world so y'all can look forward to Elves in Sun Haven - two of which are romanceable btw. Just wanted to post a follow-up and say thanks to you guys for your support! Especially to anyone who backed financially or boosted our visibility, that was extremely helpful. Also, please join in on our Discord! We've got a super wholesome community - which BLEW UP last night - and I'd love to see you all in the community since you seem like swell folk.
(sorry if it's sketch to talk about our Discord in this forum, hope that doesn't break any rules!)

Thanks again, everyone!

It's fine to talk about your Discord :) Glad your Kickstarter went well and that you can add...Nel'vari, was it? (I'm writing that from memory, so it is probably totally wrong.) And particularly two additional candidates!
