Play The Relaxing Farming Simulator RPG – STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town
Nintendo has been doing a lot of great game trials recently for Nintendo Switch Online members, following on from Minecraft Dungeons and DAEMON X MACHINA. Nintendo has decided to go onto Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. It gives players access to the full game for a limited amount of time, in most cases 7 days. The free trial for STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town ends tomorrow, but their discount offer lasts for another 9 days. It seems that over time Nintendo will offer game trials for the more expensive games, as Story of Seasons is almost priced at the same amount as a first-party Nintendo game, so it’s nice to know they are offering the chance to try games that are a little less affordable. It lets people know if the game is really worth their pennies.

What is STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town?
Well, it’s a mix of a farming life simulator and an RPG, there isn’t a ‘set in stone’ plot, the story somewhat goes along with what you do. It’s a world you create yourself, a world where you can plant crops, look after your animals, craft, participate in cosy town competitions, get married, move in with your lover and much more. Think of it as a Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing New Horizons with an anime element fixed into it. As many people say, it looks like Harvest Moon, but that’s because it technically is, just with a different title. Well, it’s changed a lot over the years, but it’s still very enjoyable!
There’s a lot to do in STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers Of Olive Town, it feels just as fun as STORY OF SEASONS: Friends of Mineral Town, which has a number of fewer features than Pioneers of Olive Town. It’s addicting and you find that it’s easy to get over 100 hours of gameplay because you want to see your crops grow, sell and get enough money to upgrade your tools, then maybe go mining for ores, or stalk your lover Damon and wait for him to increase his friendship points, notice you and eventually marry you someday (I have no shame).
Friendship points happen to be very important and it means you can access something later on in the game that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to if you didn’t focus on strengthening your friendship, because of that mechanic, there are often a lot of surprises around when you least expect it and there’s tons of interesting dialogue, little scenes between the different characters and a lot to explore and complete.
It’s a great game to get stuck into if you’re a fan of life and farming simulators, the music also adds to the relaxing gameplay and the dialogue always feels very rewarding for each day you speak with one of the NPC’s no matter who it is.
Don’t worry, you can still get the game 30% over the next 9 days, so at least you won’t have to pay full price for it. OR you can buy a game that you’ll 100% know is good and here I recommend Animal Crossing New Horizons, one of the best selling Nintendo Games of 2020. You can even dust off your 3DS console and Play STORY OF SEASONS: Trio of Towns.
