Story of seasons: Friends of Mineral Town
What's in this article...
Story of seasons is a business simulation (SIM) game, a remake version of the classic GBA game “Ore Town”. Players can enjoy themselves by planting fruits and vegetables, caring for animals, communicating with residents, and getting married to others. This is a casual game, which is suitable for those people who are suffering from a fast-paced life or some troubles in the real life in order to enjoy a relatively leisurely life in the game world. You need a switch console and a controller which is adapted to the switch or you can play the game directly through the PC. Now let the editor give you a brief introduction to you.
The story begins with a letter.
The mayor of Ore Town invites you to inherit your grandpa’s ranch.
Distant memories also unfolded slowly with the letter.
You’ve spent a pleasant vacation on the ranch.
Here you experienced the happiness of affection, friendship, and harvest.
This time, you will take over the ranch personally.
Strive to become a qualified rancher.
Players act as a rancher in the game, who are responsible for plating crops and feeding animals. This is the main source of getting money and one of the most important points of this game.
Plow the land with a hoe and pick up various miscellaneous vegetables, stones, and branches. Or mow the grass with a sickle and clear the stones and wooden with the hammer and ax. And then the player could expand the planting area gradually. At the same time, you could plant the seeds you bought on the land you’ve hoped for. Water it once a day and then the soil will become darker. In order to accelerate the growth of the crops, you can even buy some fertilizers. After the maturity of the crops, they can be collected and put into the shipping box to exchange for money.
Ranchers could build the chicken sheds and barns through the accumulation of initial seeds, exploration, and collection. Now we suppose that you have bought 5 kinds of animals: cow, sheep, alpaca, chicken and angora rabbit. You can’t arrange these animals arbitrarily. You should put cows, sheep, and alpacas in the animal huts. Chicken and angora rabbits should be raised in their cages. You should replenish the fodder, brush the fur, and clean for the animals every day. You even have to interact and have a chat with the animals and you need to spend time touching them to enhance their growth. If you dedicate your energy and daily care to them, you’ll get high-quality livestock products. You can deal with them in two ways, one is to sell them and you can get money, and the other one is to breed them to obtain more new animals.
The rancher’s energy is limited. You should know that every activity that needs the tool will consume your energy. If you use up your energies, it’ll be a little difficult for you to use other tools. Going out in bad weather, using tools, or working late can also accumulate fatigue. If you’re too exhausted, you’ll faint and be taken to the hospital, which will occupy your time working. It’s not worth it, is it? You can recover the strength and fatigue by soaking in hot springs and having meals. However, going to bed earlier is the best way and you will be full of energy the next day!
What is a rancher working for? Of course, it’s to make money. Definitely, making money is to enjoy life. The first step to enjoying life is to make yourself more comfortable. So your home can have more interactive facilities.
For example, after expanding the house once, you can add cooking facilities, cooking tools, and use materials for cooking. Make delicious meals from recipes to restore, sell, give as gifts, and more. In addition, you’ll have a TV that provides weather forecasts, news, and various variety and educational programs. The calendar on the wall is important. The time of various events will be recorded so that you can prepare in advance. When you learn about the townspeople’s birthdays, there will also be records. Keeping a diary and reading a diary is an access file. Interacting with the mirror can transform your haircut. The organizer can store props, materials, and other items. The toolbox is where various production tools are placed. Outdoor mailbox interaction can get mail. Many important emails will trigger plots and missions.
In addition, as town dwellers and game players, we must understand the environment and situation around us so that we can easily start plots and missions. Click F and you can open the map to see routes and buildings. Pointing the mouse to the building can help you to see the detailed introduction.
Don’t overlook those small houses, caves, tents, etc. These are important scenes. Some areas are open spaces, and new residents may move in as the story progresses, providing new features and interactions.

First, we get the fishing rod at Zac’s house on the Ore Coast, then we go to the
fishing spot to fish. There are 8 fishing spots in the game, but I have only been
to Virgin Mountain Lake so far, and interested players can explore all the
fishing spots. In addition, I heard that there are 27 species of fish, of which
there are 7 kingfish, but the probability of catching is not large, but if you are
lucky enough to live, you can catch kingfish.
Love and marriage
Are you looking for a lover? Whether it is a heterosexual or a same-sex
marriage object (same-sex is called a close friend), you can trigger love
events until marriage by increasing the love degree. Players can choose their
favorite characters as their love goals and marriage goals according to their
own preferences, and then go to attack her/him.
