The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #24: Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley

3 mins read

We’re counting down to Christmas!

There is a long history in Christmas in counting down the days from the first of December to the big day – after all, who hasn’t had an Advent Calendar at some point?
So we’re celebrating the silly season with a countdown of our own. One game that has been released this year that makes for the perfect Christmas game, each day, all the way down to Christmas Eve. 
You can see previous games on our own little Advent Calendar on the side of the site. Just click on any date that has passed and you’ll be redirected (don’t get too excited and jump ahead though – the current page will simply reload). Hopefully it keeps you and your family in the good times for the whole of the best time of year. 
Happy gaming!

 The 24 Games Of Christmas
Day #24: Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley

(Review coming soon!)

Remember those old Christmas specials where the protagonist wished for it to be Christmas every day? Y’know, the ones where repetition sets in rapidly and the lead character learns to treasure life’s special moments? Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley isn’t technically about Christmas so much as winter as a whole, but with its near eternal supply of snow and wintry weather, it fits right in with the sentiment.
In Natsume’s latest farming sim, the land is plagued by eternal frost and players are tasked with unlocking every season through hard labour and the love of those around them. It being Harvest Moon, of course, there’s plenty entertainment to be had through raising livestock, fishing, and now manipulating the very land itself, but the way the game limits crops and the like during the dreary winter days is a very tangible reminder of how a cycle of diversity keeps the world fresh.

It’s the final day of our Christmas countdown and all we’re trying to say here is don’t get too caught up in Christmas. Graze the pastures with your bovine pals once in a while, will ya?

Thanks for reading along with us this year and happy holidays from!
