Lovely relaxing game. Thank you to my Secret Santa for a wonderful choice!
The environment design in this game is beautiful - I took a fair few screenshots throughout. I just wish I could hide the characters so that I could get just the environment!
It also really goes to show how much I love 'chore' games - my favourite parts are working on collections. The story was great once I looked into it further with Stella and her relationship with the characters. I'm not really the emotional type so some of the storylines really didn't impact me as it seems a lot of people praising the game did. The ending also felt inevitable and appropriate, so that part of the story didn't impact me as it seems to a lot of people who have reviewed the game.
There is also a lot of minigame type events to collect materials, and to craft every activity is slightly different so it doesn't feel to monotonous.
The only thing I didn't like with the game was how lost I was a certain points and not sure how to progress - because people do things at different points, some of the discussion forum hints didn't help either haha. (Eg. you need certain things to unlock progression). At these points, I tended to work on my collections while trying to figure out how to progress.
I really recommend the game, especially for people who like similar style games in the farming sim genre (Stardew, Portia, Farm Together etc).
