STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town is a brand-new adventure in the original farming simulation series that drops eager explorers in Olive Town, a charming seaside community on the edge of the untamed frontier, where they will work on breathing life back into their grandfather’s dilapidated farm. Though it may at first appear to be a sleepy burg, Olive Town is home to dozens of unique characters to befriend when players are ready to take a break from building their dream farm—a farm where further exploration can yield magical lands where seasons never change, an island in the sky and even a unicorn to ride!
● Tame the wilderness of the peninsula and build your farm from the ground up! — Gather and process materials to fulfill requests and improve Olive Town’s infrastructure, upgrade tools, or commission new outfits and accessories
● A Farm of Endless Possibilities — Clear the land, repair old facilities, and place new buildings wherever you see fit, and level up farming skills to craft a variety of decorations and facilities, from fences and automatic feeders for livestock to sprinklers for crops
● Participate in local festivals as the town comes to life with over 200 unique events! — Get to know your neighbors better, and you may even find love with a special someone among them
● Simple Mechanics, Deep Gameplay — Greenhorn farmers can rest easy with the return of Seedling Mode and Normal Mode, while veteran players will find familiar features and facilities with new twists on classic gameplay elements
