We don’t know why but farming simulation role-playing games are so addicting, especially if you can befriend the townspeople and even form a romantic relationship with some of them!
This game formula although often repeated and continuously reconstructed into different styles and concepts, it’ll still be a warm bowl of chicken soup for gamers who are looking for casual comfort games.
One of the most popular interpretations of these types of games is Stardew Valley, with an established fandom where you get to take over your character’s late grandfather’s overgrown farm.
Here is a list of farming role-playing simulation games!
1. Harvest Moon
Harvest Moon will always be the blueprint for farming simulation role-playing games as it’s one of the earliest games, with the first Harvest Moon game being published in 1996. Of course, Harvest Moon remains one of the timeless classics as it’s one of the earliest games to introduce heart events when forming a relationship with the bachelors and bachelorettes.
2. Coral Island
Coral Island, developed by Stairway Games is an indie game (still a farming RPG) where you develop overrun land into a lush farm – although on an island this time. Coral Island explores a more unique concept and strays from the conventional, with characters and islanders who are more inclusive and diverse.
Developed by Cheesemaster Games, you get to transform an abandoned bathhouse this time instead of a farm in the spirit world. Rather than befriend townsfolk, you’re tasked to befriend and appease angered spirits who need a relaxing bath.
