Stardew Valley is without a doubt the best game in the Harvest Moon genre in many years. It has a subtle message about what it means to live a good life and to flourish through a combination of hard work and human connection. The Harvest Moon games all basically boil down to managing a mix of time, tasks, and metrics, and recent entries in the series have relied heavily on exploiting a new gameplay gimmick with each iteration: in one it's crafting structures for the town, in another it's trading with foreign economies. The problem with this approach is that once these gimmicks are exhausted — all the houses built or all the goods traded — the games feel hollow. Stardew Valley succeeds by delivering a robust experience that does not merely rely on watching a meter go up. It has something to say and says it well, while never abandoning the core gameplay that attracted players in the first place.
**** Valley is, without any shadow of a doubt, the best game of 2016, and perhaps the best Harvest Moon game ever made. Every aspect of the game intertwines flawlessly - from the farming itself to the villager interactions - allowing for players to build an intimate connection to their farm and the world they create, which ConcernedApe has allowed for us to tailor down to the finest details.
An easily affordable game that is the best farming game to date, and can be played with friends online too. Cute visuals and a cozy atmosphere make this game a must-buy for anyone who enjoys the genre and still a great game for those who don't. It's also a great game to play with your boyfriend/girlfriend or to introduce someone to the gaming scene.
Overall this game is a very comfy RPG. There is no real time limit on completing the game but it does have a time system that keeps things moving and keeps me trying to optimize my farm wasting as little time as possible. Which for me is engaging and enjoyable.
Mostly you'll be doing the following
3. Mining/Dungeon Crawling
5. Giving gifts and chatting up the townsfolk
The more you do steps 1-4 the more money you make or resources you acquire to grow your new farm.
Becoming friendly with the townfolk allows some romance options as well as unlocking additional content that they will often send you as recipes in the mail. Each NPC has a birthday so it's good to check your calendar in the morning so you don't miss out on those bonus friendship gifts.
Sadly I have to deduct points for the inclusion of Junimo Kart. This mini game is just full of horrible design choices. Really the entire thing is just bad. It's optional for the most part; except some end game quests which are still optional but for such a polished game to include this borderline broken inclusion just bothers me. Here's a list of issues with the minigame: randomly generated levels, unnatural level design, you can jump above the screen and the camera is locked so it's very easy to lose your position, platforms also spawn at the very top of the level (if you jump on them you're blind). I get the dev probably just wanted to include something simple to spice things up but seriously this is worse then flash game platformers from 20 years ago. It's really just a waste of time sadly. If there are any junimo kart enjoyers out there I would honestly be surprised.
Journey of the Prairie King (the other minigame) isn't good either, but I would at least consider it playable.
É um bom jogo. No começo você vai ficando lotado de coisas para fazer e a medida que passa se torna mais algo repetitivo e lento. No entanto, é um jogo com uma boa ambientação, trilha sonora e personagens. Bom para jogar com os amigos, anima muito mais o jogo.
