Farm Folks A Nod to Harvest Moon

svgOct 20, 2019NewsMax

Classic Harvest Moon games are the foundation of most of the farming games we enjoy today. Since the original creator of Harvest Moon moved on to create Story of Seasons, many other developers try to capture the magic the original farming games had. Farm Folks is one of the games that succeeded in doing so.

More than 1500 backers pledged over 90.000 AUD to bring this project to life via Kickstarter. The farming simulation / RPG game lets players grow crops raise livestock, build relationship go on journeys and so much more. The game throws you right into an adventure, as it starts out by sailing on a boat gifted to you by our generous brother. The destination is finding your true purpose in life.

The tides turn quickly as the main character of the game will find himself caught up in a vicious storm. The waves, wind and rain turn your beautiful boat into nothing but few pieces of wood, washed ashore the player will have to start a whole new life on the shores of Softshoal island – the main location in the game.

From here on it is up to the player to build a new life. You will start to meet the citizen of the island who will guide and help you through this new adventure. Of course it wouldn’t be a Harvest Moon inspired game if there wasn’t farming, there are more than 60 juice, delicious crops you can grow – water, harvest eat and sell them!


Besides the traditional farming, players will also be able to enjoy, fishing and adventuring. One of the cutest aspects of the game are the adorable animals you can raise and take care of.

Farm Folks is currently available for PC in its early stage. The developers plan to release the game on Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch afterwards. Check out the cute gameplay trailer for Farm Folks below!

Farm Folks Features

  • It wouldn’t be much of a farming simulator without farming, would it? Farm Folks features the time-tested farming mechanic in which players can purchase or forage seeds and begin to grow their farm into a bountiful and rewarding resource.
  • it’s our goal to introduce somewhere around 60 juicy crops for our players to rake in that sweet, sweet digital profit. Crops and other grow-ables will be divided into 4 categories – spring, summer, fall, and winter. This means certain crops can only be grown in specific times of the year, read more on farming below.
  • Animals are an important part of any world, giving the land life and personality. Plus, they’re just dang cute! The animals and critters of Farm Folks are a big part of our game, and we want to make sure that the player feels a strong bond with their pets and livestock.
  • Otto, the local fisherman of Port Meridia, would call it a crime if you couldn’t bait your rod and cast it to the blue in a place like this! Fishing is one of the most relaxing activities in Softshoal, and a popular pastime in Port Meridia thanks to the surrounding seas and rivers.


myPotatoGames was founded out of our huge love for Animal Crossing, besides spending a lot of time taking care of my virtual village I enjoy painting, creating things or looking up funny and cute dog pictures on the internet. My preferred office location is somewhere on a remote island, in the middle of the South Pacific.

    Bokujō Monogatari has missed Wada. I still think the team over at Marvelous are doing great without Wada for the series. It’s too bad Marvelous and Natsume parted ways for the Western Releases of Bokujō Monogatari and they lost the Harvest Moon name for their games and had to use Story of Seasons instead. Glad they were able to keep the Rune Factory trademark though!
