Product Description

Inspired by tales of their grandfather’s pioneering days, the protagonist decides to pack their bags and leave the hustle and bustle of big city life for the frontier in Olive Town.

When they arrive, they run into Victor, the town’s mayor and their grandfather’s old friend. He brings them to the old farm, which has been reclaimed by nature over the years. Determined to breathe life back into their grandfather’s dream and follow in his footsteps, the protagonist rolls up their sleeves and gets to work.

Olive Town—which is just a stone’s throw away from the farm—is a port town built on the tip of a peninsula. It might be a quiet little town, but it is home to a whole host of unique characters. And while the townsfolk get by well enough in this picturesque seaside locale, a little more tourism never hurt anyone...

The long-awaited brand new entry in the original farm/life simulation franchise, known in Japan as Bokujo Monogatari, makes its debut on Nintendo Switch, bringing players more freedom than ever before to shape an untamed wilderness and customize their farm down to the very tile. A new cast of marriage candidates, a town that grows and thrives along with your farm, and a request system highlight the new features, all while retaining the core elements of the STORY OF SEASONS series. Finding Earth Sprites while exploring your farmland may lead you to mysterious, fantastical lands such as gardens where the seasons never change, an island in the sky, or even the inside of a volcano! Capture memorable moments with your camera to share online with others as loading screens, or make use of the “tourist” system to send your farmer to other players’ towns as a sightseeing visitor.

Bought it for the wife and she has put hours into it. Only game that has got her away from animal crossing. I tried it out myself and found it entertaining.

Not a whole lot of tutorials. Purpose of the game is un-meaning

A Solid Farming Sim

On a whim, I decided to pick up this game. I had never played the Harvest Moon titles (which is what this set of games used to be prior to the split in the naming), but for some reason over the holidays I wanted to get this for myself as a treat. The game itself is great! Very straightforward, and much easier to pick up on than a game like Stardew Valley. While I love Stardew Valley, sometimes I'm not always up to the complexities of the game, so Pioneers of Olive Town provides a nice reprieve. In particular, the fishing mini-game is MUCH more relaxing than the Stardew one. The chibi-style graphics might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I find it incredibly adorable! I also love the larger cast and the diverse range they bring to the story and wandering around town. With that said, the game can be a bit shallow at times. Writing this review at about 5-6 hours in, I can tell that there isn't as much depth to the game that I would like, but I still find it a solid game to pass the time, or as a solid "pick-me up" type of game. Overall, I would recommend this game to a friend, or anyone else looking for a laid-back type of farming sim. If I could rate on the half, I'd say this is a 4.5 for me at my current playtime, and I don't see the needle moving too much as I play further. But a solid farming sim with some cute characters is sometimes all you need in a game.

One of the best farm simulators on Switch

If you like farm simulators with a bit of flair then this is for you! Being able to play this anywhere makes for a very relaxing and fun experience. There is plenty of content to explore between farming, fishing, mining, and getting to know townspeople. I would have missed this if not for the game trial on the Switch!

There is so much to do in this game compared to other iterations. If fun, cute, and Olive Town is a gorgeous setting. I would definitely recommend for fans if Story of Seasons or Harvest Moon like games.

Q:
What's the difference between this game and the premium one?
VioletHikari1 year ago
A:
The only difference is that you get a plush animal and poster with game artwork. I honestly don't think it's worth paying the extra ten dollars except maybe to do the one day before release date one day shipping to get it on day of release. Instead of paying ten dollars more for just a little toy and a poster I would probably put it to getting the game faster with one day shipping cause to me that seems more worth while. But to answer your question that's about the only difference really is that you get a toy and artwork.
