    "As a general rule, I'm not a fan of 'sims' type of games that the main purpose it to build a city or grow a farm. This game does have a variety of different ways to play, but in the end it doesn't have anything uniquely special about it. All in all, its a good way to waste an afternoon, but I couldn't see myself playing it long term. "

    "Cute game but it is so challenging that sometimes it gets irritating playing this. XD I hope there would be more games like this one as it only explores what is possible in this type of multi-genre game."


Did you know that the Harvest Moon series was conceived by a video game designer who grew up in the countryside? Upon moving to Tokyo, Yasuhiro Wada immediately noticed the difference between the city and the country. Knowing this, he then began to see that there were plenty of aspects and values in the environment that he grew up in that deserved attention and appreciation. Thus began the inspiration for the game centered not on combat and competition, but on the positive aspects based on his experiences growing up in rural life. Additionally, Harvest Moon was also inspired by multiple games, from the property development of Sims City to the environmental interaction of Legend of Zelda. Eventually, it was decided that the game would center on a ranch wherein players control a farmer, plant crops, sell them on the market, raise livestock, and many other similar aspects.

As expected, the game became popular and well-loved by its fans, seeing as how all Harvest Moon games were seen as relaxing and innovative, even its Rune Factory spin-offs. It comes without a doubt that it became one of the foundations of the many farming simulators that have hit the market during the past few years, and the subsequent games have even been released in multiple platforms.

    "Funny..Crazy..Unpredictable... My sister has been hooked to this exciting action-adventure game where she must survive in the wilderness by staying vigilant throughout the game as you have to do other stuff from crafting new weapons and items, as well as to farm to stay alive. This is definitely a game which somehow resembles Harvest Moon but in a more dark side. "

    "I adore farming simulators, more on the cute side though. One of my favorite farming games as a child was Harvest Moon for the N64. Sadly not much has come out like it, and those that do seem to be lacking in direction and support. I found World's Dawn yesterday on steam and was pleasantly surprised as to how close this is to harvest moon, I can see myself playing this for hours."

    "The graphics are really bad, but the game play is engaging. I spent several hours playing before I got even a little bored. And FYI i think the last update this game has received was in 2016. Nothing is new yet so i am no longer playing this"

    "Beam me up Scotty! This pretty old game has an interesting premise and starting point, but while its reviews on Steam are positive, there aren't many of them. I did find a few references from solid game rating sites that do say it's somewhat like Harvest Moon, so I'm taking their word for it. I think I'll put my money elsewhere though . "
