I never really got into the Harvest Moon games, or even their spiritual successor Stardew Valley. It’s not that I didn’t like the games, I played the original Viva Pinata like crazy and I absolutely adored the Animal Crossing series. I guess I just never got the time to play the games, even when I really wanted to. Despite this I have been keeping up with the developer and it turns out they are developing a completely new game, Birthdays the Beginning.
This game is actually completely different to the Harvest Moon games in that this is actually a god game in a similar vain to Spore. You raise a planet’s ecosystem from single cell organisms to fully fledged creatures by manipulating the environment and temperature to encourage evolutionary growth. The game looks incredibly charming and deceptively simplistic however the complexity of the game is said to develop over time making this a very interesting concept that I may very well check out. Again I loved Spore and this seems like that but on a bigger scale and with a cuter art direction, let’s hope it turns out to be good!
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
