Put on those rubber boots and fetch your pitchfork! Here's what this farm simulation has in stock for you: Manage and expand your very own sustainable organic farm! Depending on the weather and the local villagers' demands you tend to your fields and plant a variety of crops to harvest them later on. And you have to take very good care of your chickens, cows, pigs etc. to make a profit selling your products in your own farm store. Use the proceeds to restore and expand your run-down farm and hire diligent staff to keep abreast of the ever increasing workload. And rather sooner than later, romance awaits, too. Show your sweetheart how much of an organic farmer you really are and master romantic dates to win her/his love. The sky is full of fireflies at night - just for the two of you! And as if your new life as an up-and-coming farmer wasn't already exciting enough, many adventures await you in the forest where wolves and bears are lurking. Will you manage to get the carriage safely through the woods? But you won't run out of challenges around your farm either, whether it's a troublesome buzzy beehive or the search for a missing dog in some creepy catacombs. Start Farm together!

Reviews

Harvest Life is not irredeemably awful, but it's rough and easily outclassed by the games it evokes. It feels dehydrated, with all the soul and polish sucked out, and a few pleasant tunes aren't enough revive it. Games of this ilk thrive on charm; this is subsisting on numbers and fodder. Harvest Moon fans don't have much on Switch at the moment beyond Stardew Valley, but life's too short to waste in Lohwold.

I hate having to compare Harvest Life to Stardew Valley or Harvest Moon or any other game of this type because I feel like it harms them by association. While I rarely get on a tear about games because I worry about being unfair, Harvest Life just offends me because the games that inspired this one are just so much better by both ambition and execution than this. Nobody should be settling for a game like this in a library of choices as vast and full of quality as there is on the Switch. Even if you’ve burned through Stardew and other games like it already and are thirsting for that next fix, this game simply isn’t worth your money or your time.
