    Been playing it for a while.
    It honestly does not do anything other games of its genre hasn't done before.
    I wouldn't say it completely fails at being a farming game, but it does fail as an action game.
    Companies keep trying to mix both genres, thinking it is okey to just half ass the combat side of it for no reason.
    The music is good.

      So you're saying it's already far superior to every other game in the genre? Except maybe Atelier, was that a farming game?

      Since no one else is playing this apparently, how is the farming?
      Does it take a back seat to the combat parts? Do the mechanics have any sort of depth or complexity?

        it's decent but there's nothingt deep or complex about it no, but I would say it's a bigger part of the game than I was lead to believe.
        People here were saying it was 5% of the game and vapid, which isn't true at all. In fact the farming is better than the combat.

      That's a shame but personally I could overlook that. Even in Rune factory I cared much more about chatting with the towns people/farming.
      So does it do the town well? Dialogue looping too quickly would be the real DoA for me.

        that's another thing I forgot to complain about, the towns and NPCs are quite shallow. It doesn't feel particularly immersive.
        The entire game just feels like a half-assed proof of concept of something that could potentially be a 10/10.
        The sound track is great though.

        >sped up time

        I thought I was the only one who noticed how bad the passage of time is.

        This is unbelievably shit.

        yes it was enough on its own to ruin the game for me, I don't understand the thinking at all.

          Makes sense, people usually rank Frontier as a 9 after modding the runeys out

          How disappointing. Didn't have high expectations to begin with but it feels like it's been ages since there was a good farming sim.
          Seems like RF4 was the last one I enjoyed, towns people all had memorable personalities in that one and I really liked how you could bring them out with you to do shit. Makes the overworld feel less lonely compared to older harvest moon titles and such. But thanks for trying this kusoge out anon.

          How fast are we talking about here? How many minutes per day? Are you allowed to stay up late?

            10 real-time seconds:10 in-game minutes, so exactly like RF4S.
            There is a different overworld time lapse dependent on distance if going out to the other 4 towns or dungeons, but mitigated by owning a pet (halved, then two 10% upgrades). Meanwhile farming time is mitigated by completing Faerie Orders for bigger range tools and 3x3, 5x5, or 7x7 sprinklers (your farm is a 3x3 of 7x7 expansions).
            Days start at 6:00 AM, enter Early Hours (midnight), then you faint at 2 AM (20 real-time minutes). At 10 PM you get all stats -20%, at Early Hours, all stats -40%. In the Prologue Demo, it was 5/6:10 for 16 real-time minutes and 40 seconds.
            For reference, Stardew is 7:10 and also goes up to 2 AM (14 real-time minutes).
            RF3 is 5:10 and RF5 is 20:10, and those games let you go up to 6 AM (12 real-time minutes for RF3, 24 for RF4S, or 48 for RF5).

            I think the complaints feel overrated when you're meant to tackle things over multiple days (dungeons have ladder/bridge shortcuts and teleport points for a reason), otherwise you get RF5's problem where you barely advance the calendar from how much you can do in a day (story clear by late Spring/early Summer Year 1). Harvestella also has Quietus, a 1 day season at the end of each season, with a 50+ floor dungeon to crawl through that compliments the fast pace.

      It actually does fail as a farming game
      It's a downgrade over Stardew and rune factory and rune factory has monster taming also. There are very limited interactions between the villagers in harvestella compared even Harvest Moon 64 mogs it in that department
      There is also no marriage or romance to appease trannies, the actual dev answer lmao

    It's 'shitty' as in like it's stuck on 90s mindset. Minor voice acting, minor animation, minimalistic combat, minimalistic UI, etc. Can't comment much on farming part because I haven't got that far.

    In other words, it scratches my nostalgia itch. I like it.

    no. and that's coming from somebody who was desperate to love this game. Ignore the retards saying there are no romance options or farming - both are decent - but for me the dealbreaker was how railroaded the plot is.
    I thought it'd be like Harvest Moon with some mystery dungeon quests always at the ready for when you need items or are in the mood to progress the story, but the game literally forces you to do missions. It's not a 'comfy slice of life sim' like the marketing says at all. In fact when you are farming, the weirdly sped-up time system means it isn't relaxing at all.

        time is literally too fast. Imagine you woke up this morning and needed a shit, you take a long dump and consider what to have for breakfast, but then when you go downstairs it's already sunset and you have to go get ready for bed soon. It's bullshit and ruins the game

        yes, you have to accomplish pretty simple objectives over the course of several days, resting in between. Compared to say, animal crossing or harvest moon, it is infuriating. It's such a weird thing to fuck up too, because the default would be to not be like that. They had to actively make it bad.

        How fast are we talking about here? How many minutes per day? Are you allowed to stay up late?

        'Square Enix and Live Wire also outlined the game’s day-one update. It’s based on feedback from the Nintendo Switch demo and includes a reduced time-lapse speed in the field and world map. Days will thus be longer, providing more time to farm, fish, explore, and whatnot.'
        it looks like they patched it actually
        maybe I should reinstall it, why the fuck are devs using consumers as beta testers though this day one patch thing needs to stop

    I feel like the majority of the issues people have with this game ties back to the fact that it's 60 USD.

    How much would you realistically be okay with paying for this level of quality? I can't imagine this should be priced any higher than 30 USD.

    I heard it's kinda underwhelming combat wise and farming is not well done as well. It's a shame because after Rune Factory 5 was deemed as not as good as RF4, some said RF5 felt low budget, Harvestella kinda came across as Squeenix's attempt at a higher budget farming meets action RPG game in the veins of Rune Factory or even Stardew Valley
