Rating Summary:

This is a simulation game in which players assume the role of a young farmer who must make the Town's bazaar vibrant once again. While accomplishing this goal, players can grow crops, ranch livestock, interact with villagers, and engage in commerce with vendors. Players can also collect various food and beverages in town: tomato salad, butter, chocolate, miso, green tea, cheese, yogurt, chestnut wine, strawberry wine, and beer; players can consume these items, which often return stamina—the depiction is benign and in-context (i.e., there is no getting drunk in the game). Players have the ability to hit animals with a hammer (though there is no benefit to this), which causes the animals to blink and briefly cry out.
