Today, Merge Games announced that it’s partnering with developer RainyGames to publish the narrative-driven farming and life sim SunnySide. It will launch for Switch later in 2022.
SunnySide is described as an “open world farming JRPG with deep social sim aspects.” Players will be attempting “to bridge the gap between traditional practices and modern influences as they find harmony in the Japanese countryside.” Building relationships with locals is another aspect of the game.
More information can be found below.
SunnySide is a narrative-driven farming and life sim, with elements of combat and exploration sprinkled in. You’ve just purchased your first plot of land in an aging post town in the heart of the Japanese countryside. Now it’s up to you to create a homestead to be proud of. Build your new life and modernize your farming experience with new technology, grow crops, care for livestock and utilize technology to tend to your farm for you. Build the life you want, from your avatar, your homestead and your phone screen, to your buildings, layouts and decorations. Become a part of the community and form new bonds, join groups, attend events, and maybe even find someone special to share your days with.
– A Deep Farming Sim – Grow crops: fruit & veg plants, trees, herbs, flowers and teas. Tend to nine types of farm animals to create products for your farm.
– Build the Perfect Homestead – Bringing the classic farming sim into the 21st century, utilize technology to take care of your tedious tasks; solar panels, electric water pumps, contemporary food production machines and more.
– Begin Your Journey – Undertake a journey of self-discovery in the local cave systems: exploring and engaging in combat to unlock new areas of the map.
– Solidify Your Bonds – With both friendship and romance options available, hang out and spend time with your friends 1-on-1 or in group settings. Accumulate friendship points and take on additional Harmony Quests.
