My Time at Sandrock brings something new to the crafting/farming genre with its desert setting and genuine resource scarcity paired with a compelling story about restoring a struggling ghost town filled with memorable characters to its former glory.
Atelier Ryza 2 is an excellent entry in an item-crafting focused JRPG series. It improves on its predecessor via quality-of-life improvements, more in-depth character interactions and a sprawling story. Plus, it's absolutely adorable!
