Harvestcraft is a farming game inspired by Minecraft and Harvest Moon. I find Minecraft to lack purpose and Harvest Moon games to lack creative expression, so I've decided to try combining these two game types.








platforms: I'm using XNA, so Windows pc and possibly XBLIG
release date: sometime in 2013
pricing: to be decided
team: just me for now (programming, art and game design)

Cool visuals. I'm also curios if those are mockups or actual screenshot.

I agree.

And despite the fact that the ground is just a solid color, the game looks very pretty to me.  Smiley Hand Thumbs Up Right

This looks great! I like the simplicity in the graphics. I'd be interested in hearing more about the design behind the game such as are you going to put a focus on farming? It looks like you plan to do some mining as well.

Cool idea and graphics. I liked the events and plot of Harvest Moon. Hopefully MineCraft's mechanics will give you something to do in-between the story / stuff happening.
