Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Released

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is now available for Windows on Steam, offering the first PC game in the long-running farm simulation series. The 20 year history preceding this game and its release is interesting, and more than a little complicated, and there's an interview on PC Gamer that explains all the hows and whys. Back to the game itself, this launch trailer offers a look at gameplay, and here are details from the launch announcement:

In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, players begin the game as they set out looking for a fresh start and new surroundings. During their voyage, their ship is hit by a monsoon and goes down. As they drift into a small harbor town, now in shambles from the storm, it will be up to the player to help rebuild the town and save the lighthouse...but it won't be easy! Nevertheless, with some hard work growing crops, tending livestock, and gathering materials for repairs, players will be able to make new friends, start a family, revive the lighthouse, and save the town!

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope includes new features such as repairing, which enables the player to repair destroyed homes and unlock new shops, characters, farming tools, and farming land. The Farming Friend is another new addition, which helps players grow abundant crops. The game has a retro plus feel, with classic SNES-inspired graphics alongside some modern features in honor of the 20th anniversary. There will also be some familiar faces from previous Harvest Moon titles!

Harvest Moon: Light of Hope let's players:

  • Collect important materials to rebuild the town and restore the lighthouse!
  • Complete requests from villagers to unlock new areas and items!
  • Attend new and unique festivals, including the Dog Racing Festival!
  • Learn to grow and mutate crops with user friendly UI and tutorials!
  • Play as a boy or a girl, get married, and start a family!

Really looking forward to the Multiplayer Update for Stardew Valley next year. Especially because ConcernedApe wrote on twitter that there are going to be update to the base game, too. Really happy that he decided to do that since he mentioned after the last big update that there would be no more content (besides the multiplayer update) and that he would focus on the new game.

Good times. :>

A poor attempt to get into the survival genre. I would suggest anyone just avoid it.

Yep... this is garbage. Just play Stardew Valley or something.

I keep warning you. Doors and corners, kid. That's where they get you. Humans are too fucking stupid to listen.

Don't bother, this is "Harvest Moon" in name only, a trademark usurped by Natsume (publisher/localization) a few years ago when they parted ways with the actual developers of the series. Just watching the trailer you can tell it's a pile of hot garbage (which is why the YouTube comments are disabled)...

If you want the real deal, you want Story of Seasons, or if you want a farm sim game to play on PC and other consoles that aren't 3DS, Stardew Valley is a very good substitute.
