    [dropcap]R[/dropcap]eleased on 21/02/18, Gleaner heights is a challenging yet charming Harvest Moon and Twin peaks inspired farming simulation game. Evoking a 90’s themed character art style and sharing similarities with SNES and Gameboy versions of Harvest Moon, the game is certainly nostalgic. That being said, it is also current and relevant, allowing players to have dyed hair and to be gay and bisexual.

    The game has been likened to Stardew Valley, with many criticising the developer of copying Stardew Valley’s mining and character customisation features. However, the game has been in development since before the publication of Stardew Valley, and the developer claims to have purposely avoided playing Stardew Valley as to not copy from the popular game.

    The game includes the elements of traditional farming games such as animal care and husbandry, crop growing, relationships with townsfolk etc.

    Additionally, it caters for gamers who like a good mystery with a town full of:

    – Residents living double lives. You can choose to help or sabotage their plottings and betrayals.

    – Spooky happenings. Unravel the town’s supernatural history, from it’s founding, right up to present day.

    – Mysterious powerful creatures that appear to be guarding lost treasures.

    Gleaner Heights Main Features Include:

    -Play as a male or female character.
    -Over 30 villagers with their own schedules, habits, likes and dislikes.
    -Extended farming mechanics with over 40 different crops.
    -Animals like chickens and cows, as well as a horse. Extended sub-mechanics include growing mushrooms in a mysterious cave, or breeding silkworms.
    -Extended crafting system with lots of recipes, from fences to explosive arrows to cheese makers.
    -Cooking with over 110 recipes.
    -Complete town upgrade projects. Have your very own boat and explore the river and waterfall, and even explore underwater with your diving suit!
    -Romantic interests and marriage.
    -Day/night cycle, seasons, and weather system.
    -Skills, perks and equipment (clothing) with set bonuses.
    -Tool upgrades and mining.
    -Fishing! Over 40 fishes populate various water bodies around the town and in underground lakes.
    -Town events and festivals.
    -Main plot with different “endings”.
    -Explore and discover hidden areas and dungeons.
    -Surprisingly fluid combat for a game of this genre, with players being able to charge ther tool attacks while moving, roll, dash, perform power attacks etc.
    -Multi-language support (in progress).
    -Gamepad/mouse support.

    The game’s standard cost is $9.99 (£7.19), but it is currently on sale at $8.99 (£6.47).

    For more farming games check out the upcoming Ooblets game, it features gardening and a crafting system as well, you can check it out here. We also can’t stop playing Lullaby Gardens in which you can roam a huge area to build, craft, farm and more.

    2017 wasn’t all doom and gloom. It brought us (or rather, game developers Infinite Fall brought us) the well-received, atmospheric, and story-rich game, Night In The Woods. Fans of the game, Nintendo Switch owners, and those who simply haven’t got round to playing it, will be pleased to hear that the game will be available for Nintendo Switch on February 1st.

    The adventure-platformer game will cost $19.99 on Nintendo Switch.

    Additionally, the Switch version of the game will include the new Weird Autumn edition (which was released December 13th for other platforms).

    The Weird Autumn edition has been described as ‘a director’s cut’ of the original game.

    Those who bought the standard version needn’t fret however, as they can download the Weird Autumn patch for free.

    It was also announced on Twitter that the game will be released for mobile at some point in 2018.

    About Night in The Woods

    Mae Borowski, a female feline college dropout returns to her hometown of Possum Springs, only to find that it’s more depressing than ever.

    Things are the same as they have always been, yet entirely different.

    It seems that adulthood has hit her friends in the face with a frying pan.

    As Mae attempts to rekindle friendships and adapt to new circumstances, she suspects that sinister things are occurring. People are disappearing and somebody is following her.

    As the nights grow longer, and the trees become bare, it soon becomes apparent that there’s something in the woods.

    But will people take the worries of a disliked dissociative dropout seriously?

    The description on Steam describes the game as:

    ‘An adventure game focused on exploration, story, and character, featuring dozens of characters to meet and lots to do across a lush, vibrant world.’

    Highly relatable, vibrant, and tinged with dark humour, Night In The Woods is a must-play.

    If you’d like to find out more before purchasing the game, why not check out IGN’S review of it here.

    We’ve compiled a list of the eight best story-rich games, relevant to casual gamers. From the wilderness of Wyoming to the remarkable realm of Rakuen, here are eight critically acclaimed games we think you’ll like.


    Firewatch is an atmospheric walking sim adventure game developed by Campo Santo. Set in 1989, you play as a man who is a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. But something strange leads you to explore the nearby forest, where you have to make decisions that can potentially build relationships, as well as destroy.

    Rated ‘Very Positive’ on Steam and often praised for it’s story and interactivity, the game is definitely worth a play.

    Plus, it’s currently 60% off in the Steam winter sale and is available for just £5.99

    To The Moon

    With ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews, if you haven’t played this emotional game already, we recommend that you break out the tissues and get started.

    Described as a Story-Rich indie Adventure game, To The Moon is somewhat like a Black Mirror episode, although without the horror. Albeit being a little old, considering it was published in 2011, the game is still highly regarded.

    Two doctors are able to give patients on their deathbeds another chance to live, right from the beginning. The catch is that the experience is only in their head, and they die once they reach the end of that life.

    The game features elderly patient Johnny, where the two doctors attempt to fulfil his lifelong dream. As they uncover fragments of his past, it becomes clear that he only ever had one real wish; To go ‘To The Moon’.

    Again, this game is currently on sale, and with a 75% discount, is only £1.74!

    Finding Paradise

    Finding Paradise is a sequel to the aforementioned game, To The Moon. The game was released on 14th December 2017 and is therefore very new.

    This game also has ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews on Steam, and is a must-play for those who enjoyed To The Moon.

    In this game, the two doctors have a patient named Colin. They attempt to unravel a life split down the middle, and fulfil his dying wish, which appears self-contradictory.

    This game is 10% off and only £6.29


    Undertale is a story-rich RPG by tobyfox with ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews.

    Described as ‘The RPG where you don’t have to destroy anyone’, Undertale is story-rich due to your character’s journey, and also due to player choices affecting the game.

    You play as a human child who has fallen underground into the realm of monsters and thus, tries to find their way home. You encounter both good monsters and bad along the way, which you can choose to spare or fight. There are a variety of puzzles to complete in order to progress, and a variety of interesting areas to explore.

    This game is 50% off and only £3.99.

    Night in The Woods

    Night in The Woods is an atmospheric story-rich indie adventure game developed by Infinite Fall.

    The game features college dropout Mae Borowski who returns to her hometown. Dismayed that her home is more dead-end than she remembers it, Mae discovers people have been going missing. This combined with weird dreams and spooky encounters leads Mae to investigate; and for her friends to think she’s batty.

    With a variety of characters to meet, places to explore and a clever storyline, NITW is another game where player decisions count. Although the storyline won’t change dramatically, thorough exploration allows users to have more meaningful interactions with other characters, and to build friendships with those who you choose to spend time with.

    This game is 25% off and only £11.24

    Hollow Knight

    With ‘Very Positive’ reviews on Steam, Hollow Knight is an indie action adventure metroidvania game where players can ‘forge their own path’.

    The game, developed by Team Cherry, takes place under the ‘fading town’ of Dirtmouth. Many are attracted to the kingdom below the surface in hope of wealth, power and glory.

    The ancient ruined kingdom below, is an expansive inter-connected world for players to explore. From caverns, to deadly wastes, you can befriend bugs, battle baddies and solve ancient mysteries at the very heart of the kingdom.

    This game is 34% off and only £7.25

    Additionally, a port for the game is being released for Nintendo Switch early this year!

    What Remains of Edith Finch

    What remains of Edith Finch has consistently been reviewed positively by the media and has ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews on Steam. Developed by Giant Sparrow, the game features Edith Finch, who is the last remaining Finch family member.

    In this story-rich atmospheric walking simulator, you play as Edith, and explore the Finch’s Washington house in an attempt to uncover how the rest of the family died. You’ll experience strange tales from the distant past, right up to the near-present, each explaining how various family members died. Morbid? yes. Intriguing? Also yes.

    This game is 35% off and only £9.74


    We have mentioned this game before, so apologies for featuring it again. But it definitely deserves a place among the most story-rich games on Steam due to its heart-warming storyline and beautiful graphics.

    This game is 35% off and only £4.54

    D[dropcap][/dropcap]o you remember playing the highly popular Secret of Mana game from the successful Mana series?
    Do you wish you could play it again, or get the opportunity to play such a highly regarded game?
    Well you’re in luck!

    Square Enix, (the masterminds behind the Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy series’), have nearly completed their 3D remake of the game. The game’s official release date is Feb 15th 2018. However, pre-purchasing the game gets you exclusive DLC suits for your characters (Moogle Suit for Randi, Primm and Popoi, Tiger Two-Piece for Primm, and Tiger Suit for Randi and Popoi) as well as a custom downloadable wallpaper.

    If you live under a rock (like a certain pink starfish) and have never heard of Secret of Mana, allow me to enlighten you. The game is a story-rich anime JRPG game that was created by Square for SNES back in 1993. By far the most successful game in the Mana series, Secret of Mana has been highly praised for it’s satiating storyline, superb soundtrack, and gorgeous graphics. It’s therefore unsurprising that the game is available for iOS, and is coming to Steam, PS4, and bizarrely, PS Vita.

    Fans of the game will be pleased to hear that the story-line and characters in the remake are true to the original. However, Square Enix have switched things up and introduced new additions and perks such as:

    • 3D Graphics
    • Modern controls
    • Modern action RPG
    • A custom downloadable wallpaper
    • Armour DLC
    • Newly arranged musical score
    • Voiced characters
    • Co-op multiplayer
    • Interlude episodes
    • Game log
    • Achievements

    Additionally, avid art fans may be interested in the amazing artwork (created by HACCAN-san) that is showcased on the game’s Steam page.

    This refreshing rendition of a timeless cult classic can be pre-purchased here for a reasonable price of $39.99

    Nostalgia awaits you..

    Ooblets is an upcoming Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing and Pokémon  inspired game. Your character, which looks similar to one that might have walked out of a Sims game, gets to fish, grow and train Ooblets and befriend villagers, plus more in this cute and colourful indie game. It is expected to be released for PC through Steam at some point in 2018. You can see some of the gameplay footage here.

    The developers have recently posted a small series of updates in regards to how the game is coming along.

    Merch store

    The developers have set up an Ooblets merchandise store for patrons which sells an Ooblets poster, Ooblets T shirts and Ooblets pins.

    Furniture store name

    Rebecca, the game’s creator, has come to a decision on a name for the in-store furniture name (‘TYSOOT’ which stands for Things You Sit On and Other Stuff).

    The little things

    Small things are being implemented such as: player energy; placeable fences and paths; new crops, buildings and Ooblets; and a new accessory (a money belt).

    Crafting and Quests

    New crafting machines (such as the cupcake press), quests, and Ooblet quests are also a thing.

    Other additions and changes

    The devs have created a Police Station/Sheriff’s office, introduced windows to buildings, created more NPC’s for Nullwhere, created an interior for the café, plus made some changes to the clothing shop.

    From the images shown in the latest update, it looks like Ooblets is going to be cuter than ever! c:
