E-I-E-I-oh boy I almost went to bed without watering the corn. Oh, hello. On today’s Retro Encounter, we’re breaking out the farm equipment and digging into the ever-growing farm simulation genre. Many of them overlap with RPGs, especially as modern games have expanded their systems beyond crops, animals, and relationships, offering combat systems and more. Of course we talked about Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons and Stardew Valley, but we covered much more ground in discussing how we all got our start, what we are playing now, and some farming games we’re looking forward to. Saddle up!
