Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life Features
In Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life, you'll have to take care of your farm and make sure it's profitable enough so you can keep it! Plant crops according to the season, raise livestock, and sell the stuff they make so you can get massive profits.
But it's not all just money in Forgotten Valley. There are friends to be made too! From the Nature Sprites who might end up helping you around the farm, to the bachelors and bachelorettes of Forgotten Valley, there are a lot of people you can get to know and make good memories with.
Once you’re married, you will eventually have a kid that you’ll need to raise on the farm. Depending on how you raise them, they'll either continue your legacy of farming or move on to another career altogether. Whatever you want your child to do with their future, it's up to you to guide them on that path by exposing them to the right people.
