Publisher Rising Star Games who have released well over a hundred games across the Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms, as well as the PC, have made their first venture into the smartphone/tablet market with their upcoming title Harvest Moon Lil’ Farmers. It sets out to be a game that is simple enough to be played and enjoyed by young children. Developers Daredevil Developments are at the helm and have previously made others children’s games such as ‘Bob the Builders Playtime Fun’ and ‘Bubble Melody’.
For those unfamiliar with the now 20-year-old Harvest Moon franchise, it is a laid back experience with the simple goal of maintaining a farm via planting crops and raising animals. It is a simple concept that was fun for all ages, making it all the more interesting to see how that carries over with this newest entry. Harvest Moon Lil’ Farmers will be sold for around $3.99/€3.99/£3.99 or your regional equivalent and will not feature ads nor micro-transactions.
Some of Harvest Moon Lil’ Farmers key features are:
- The ultimate Harvest Moon sandbox! Enjoy an intuitive interface with no text to read – a perfect playset for pre-schoolers.
- Grow veggies in the vegetable patch, planting seeds and then helping them grow them with tender loving care!
- Shear sheep, collect eggs, milk your cow and more as you care for and nurture all of your animals.
- Keep the locals happy by providing a wide range of produce in your farm shop.
Managing Director of Rising Star Games, Martin Defries, has this to say about their upcoming title “We are thrilled to enter the app market with a title based on Harvest Moon, a series whose name has been synonymous with family-friendly gaming for 20 years. We worked in close partnership with the series’ originator Natsume for complete authenticity, and partnered with developer Daredevil for its impressive experience in delivering engaging and kid-friendly experiences based on trusted children’s brands. We can’t wait to share the outstanding results of this combined project with youngsters across the globe”.
Harvest Moon Lil Farmers is set to release globally for both IOS and Android the 25th of May.
