4 Things Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons Can Learn from Stardew Valley
Marriage has always played a big part in games like Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons. Aside from all the farming, you can woo a bachelor/bachelorette by showering them with gifts. Once they fall in love, you can eventually start a family with them. While it isn’t a required gameplay mechanic, there’s no denying that marriage has been a popular gameplay feature in farming games.
That said, diversity is becoming a popular topic in modern gaming and Stardew Valley accepts this by including same-sex relationships. You can woo any of the bachelors as a male and any of the bachelorettes as a female. While Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons don’t exactly have to copy the same idea, it’d be a great option if they could include a few romanceable LGBT characters. There’s no doubt that this added feature will attract more players to the series.
