Congratulations on making this game !

I've played your game during a live that you can watch here :

The live is timestamped so you can go directly to your game.

I hope the feedback and live reactions will be useful. Keep it up !


Wasn't able to get very far, but it was fun experimenting and figuring out the game systems.  I like the use of shaders to implement the day night system and some pretty nice water reflections! I've often thought about making a minimal harvest moon clone, and this is an awesome implementation of that! Great work


Great music! A little confusing but still fun


I really like the design and idea of the game, but it would be helpful to have some more directions as I wasn't sure what some of the items were.

(1 edit)


We have now implemented item names in the top left corner, that should help already. We have also added some item and mechanic descriptions to this page.
