Trading Cards and a big weeklong discount!

Hey everyone,
In case you hadn't already noticed, World's Dawn is currently 50% OFF as part of this weeklong sale! This is the cheapest the game has ever been, so if you or anyone you know has been waiting to jump in, now is great time to do so. I appreciate any help you can offer spreading the word this week as well.

In other news, I'm happy to announce that Trading Cards have been added to the game! Starting today you're able to unlock badges, emoticons, and profile backgrounds by collecting and trading 12 unique cards, each one featuring a different Sugar Blossom villager. You can learn more here if you're unfamiliar with how Steam cards and rewards work.

Unfortunately, the next big content update (which includes the addition of Quint and Senah as marriage candidates) is still not quite ready for release. I'm truly sorry for the delay... it's been a very busy summer and I just haven't been able to find the time I'd like to be able to work on World's Dawn. I hope you all know how much I appreciate your support and your patience in the meantime.

Thank you very much for reading!
And welcome to any new players this weeklong sale might bring

All the best,

Summer Sale and future updates

Hello all!
I wanted to let everyone know that World's Dawn will be 40% OFF until the end of the Summer Sale! I am very happy to be participating in my first big Steam sale, and hope the discount will motivate new players to jump in about 5 months after release.

World's Dawn is a passion project, born from a love of the Harvest Moon series and developed entirely by yours truly in my spare time. The game was received very warmly and I'm extremely grateful to the Steam community for embracing my little farming sim. It has done well, but unfortunately not quite well enough to fully support its own continued development... so it's still a project I'm only able to work on during my spare hours. I know that's not much of an excuse for the lack of updates these past few months, but I want everyone to know I certainly haven't given up on making World's Dawn better. I simply haven't had much time to do so!

That said, I wanted to give you a sneak peak of the next big update, which will include the much-requested addition of new marriage candidates Quint and Senah!

I don't have a release date for this content update quite yet, but I promise you won't have to wait too long. There will be other additions to the game included, though I'm not quite ready to announce all of them yet.

Thank you so much for playing World's Dawn and for your continued support of this project! I would really appreciate any and all help you're able to give spreading the word during the Summer Sale and beyond =)

All the best,
David Grund

It's ok, there really isn't a ton of things to do and the farm space is severly limited. I found the controls to be quite clunky, and the inventory was difficult to use. There aren't any storage options for your items which I found sorta irritating. If you really want this game I'd wait for it to go on sale.

I was torn from writing a funny/witty review or a serious one. Decided for a bit of honesty.

If people are being jerks and being 'go play stardew valley!' then they have a different harvest moon-esque playstyle than those that play this game. This game is adorable and aims more for the social aspect and imaginative characters that you look forward to spoiling with their favorite drinks. The festivals are adorable, the stories behind them is enough to make even a grown-♥♥♥ woman (I'm 27) squee like a teenager all over again. The festivals are interactive and there is one that would help you out immensely if you talk to everyone, as they give you valuable info for the event.

Yes, the developer is independant, but they are very active in helping people with their problems and on top of bug reports. That is an excessively big bonus for me. After hitting a terrible bug that made my game unplayable past a certain point, I posted in the forum, read others, and the developer kept on top of things, stating patches were coming and being very professional. Sure enough, my game is playable again and I am happily back to figuring which crops to plant and who to go make friends with.

A very nice game to play when you just need a break from the heavy plots and drama of other games and real life. Sometimes, just gotta sit down, grow some tomatos, and share with others.

Stardew is more for those that enjoy profits and are more goal-oriented. By all means, play both, but never compare them.

From what little i've played of this game, it seems very, very reminesent of the Harvest Moon games, specifcally Friends of Mineral Town for Gameboy, which is probaly one of my favorite hand held games ever. The game is very atmospheric so far, very charming too, and the little details, like flower petals flowing in the wind, rabbits running around, and birds flying in the sky are much appreciated.

The sprites are very nice looking, and the game looks very appealing (for a RPG Maker game). The character potraits...I really like, but I can see why some people might be put off by them.

The music, is great as well. Very harvest moonish.

Characters are enjoyable so far. Rather large cast. (I think I read somewhere that they focused more on the writing then the gameplay). Charaters are written very well as well. Leauges better then Harvest Moon. Theres alot of unqiue dialouge as well. (All characters will comment on the weather, the day before a special event, the day after a special event, and more). While Harvest Moon seemed only to devolep it's marriable characters with heart events, alot of side characters are given the same treatment with heart event-esque events.

From what little i've expierenced from the farming, it's slightly simplfied compared to Harvest Moon, but still very fun. I'll update this when I get to the mining, fishing, festivels and upgrading the farmstead.

Mining is...rather differnt then Harvest Moon (A good thing). Unlike Harvest Moon, you dont need a hoe to go down levels, instead the mine has set room (five in total). While the further you go down, the harder it is to mine minerals, the better chance of aquiring high quality ones. Also, unlike Harvest Moon, you dont go gems you can sell right away. You need to proccess them first (at a special station right outside the mine). When you proccess them, you get a random gem stone, that you can sell (depending on the quality of the mineral you mined, your chances of getting low, mid, and high tier gems are increased, or descreased)

You can also choose the names for your animals, which was a nice little detail I loved in the Harvest moon games. Apparantley, you can also rename your farmstead later on in the game after gettinng a certain item, which is cool.

Probaly my favorite aspect of the harvest moon series, is the courting parts, acting like a dating sim at times. Thankfully, it seems the devs have put effort into it. I've meet several differnt candiates so far, and it seems pursuing and romancing various ones, will add a good bit of repalaybility to the game (which the harvest moon games are known for), as the romance candiates personalities are all radically differnt. One thing it surpasses its progenitor on, is the ability to romance the same gender (which is a feature the Harvest Moon fanbase has been clamoring for, for years). At the start when your making your own character, you get the option to choose which sex your attracted too.

After being crushed by the disapointment that was Wild-Season, it seems we've finally gotten an excellent Harvest Moon-esque farming sim on Steam. Whole heardley recomend this to farming sim, Harvest Moon, and dating sim fans. Really excited to keep playing and explore the vast amounts of other aspects the game has to offer.

I'll keep this review short and sweet. I've played Harvest Moon games since Harvest Moon 64. Harvest Moon 64 and Back to Nature on the PS1 were my favorite games in the series and I've truly loved the series for over 15 years. That said this game is the closest thing I've found "Other Harvest Moon games included" to recapturing the love I have for the series. If you enjoyed Harvest Moon 64 or Back to Nature I fully recommend this game. The only gripe I have so far with this game is the annoying sound that plays every few seconds while running as your energy goes down. In my opinion the sound should only occur when the health is getting dangerously low as the sound is quite annoying. Hopefully this is something the developer fixes and or removes or at least gives the option to turn off.

I bought this game because it was supposed to be like Harvest Moon. I'm now close to finishing an ingame year.

+ The town and art style is very much like Harvest Moon
+ There are a lot of interesting characters with lovely art to socialize with
+ The dog is helpful, barking on spots where you could dig out some items
+ Some events, scenes and dialogues in this game made me smile to no end. This is a happy game.

- You have a farmland of 40 tiles and farm by seeding tile by tile and watering tile by tile. The watering can is your only tool and upgradable to water 3x3 tiles.
- Friendship is a grind, as is tradition in the genre. I once gifted a whole harvest to a girl without visable change in the 1 to 10 affection meter. After finishing the friendship grind on 3 villagers, the game seemed to reward me with... some random dialogue lines.
- You can only bind the shovel and watering can. You cannot bind anything else like the brush or milking device or animal fodder. This makes the daily barn work quite nasty.

If you need a Harvest Moon on PC, this isn't what you want. Games like "Friends of Mineral Town" had a significantly larger focus on farming simulation. World's Dawn is a small town simulator with a little gardening on the side.

World's Dawn is a game that your either going to love or hate. It is not a complicated game so if your coming in looking for a deep farming simulation or complex gameplay then you may want to look elsewhere. What the game does have in spades though is charm.

You start off as a new arrival to the town of Sugar Blossom. You have a small plot of farming land (20 tiles) as well as a barn that can hold 2 cows, a horse, and 4 chickens. On top of this you have a dog you start with and it is even possible to get a cat as well.

There is also fishing, gathering plants that grow around town, and mining, and mixing drinks/juice/sauces, and a local sport called lockball that you can partake in as well though it all remains fairly straightfoward and easy to understand.

So again not the most elaborate set up but enough to let you run your small farm and keep you busy as you progress through the seasons and the story while you learn about the history of the village and the spirits that keep it safe.

Beyond this is the social aspect which is easily the largest portion of the game. There are 25+ other people in the town ranging from the local baker, an artist, the town mayor, the rancher, a priest, etc, etc and all of them have their own personality's, likes, and routines throughout the day, and you can develop friendship or even romance with some of them if you so deire.

It really makes you feel like part of a community as you go about your life in your new home.

Aside from all that each season that I've played so far (after 13 hours I've just started Summer) has a couple markets where the townsfolk gather to meet and sell some goods and two festivals such as a horse race, music festival, and a beach festival each with their own mini activity that you can participate in.

Altogether as said the game absolutely nails the feel that you are in this small cheerful country community. It's not complex, it's not buried in deep mechanics for you to manage your life with. But it is a relaxing and enjoyable way to spend time provided your willing to sit back and go with the flow.

If your looking to manage a farm and make a ton of money from it and to see how quickly you can go from rags to riches this is likely not the game for you. However if you want the gaming equivalent of sitting on your front porch with a nice glass of lemonade and just relaxing and enjoying life for a bit, then I would by all means recommend giving this game a shot.

**This is going to a lengthly review**

Overall I enjoyed this game a lot. I find the game to be very charming. World's Dawn reminds me of some of the older iterations of Harvest Moon, which imo, are some of the best. Unfortunately as I think about this game, I tend to think of all the things it could have done better, and although initially I wanted to recommend the game, I find myself doing the opposite.

My overview is:
The gameplay is incredibly basic and not in depth at all. The villagers are great and the social aspect is probably the only reason to play the game. Want details? Read Below


This game really only has to offer the bare basics when it comes to gameplay. For instance, there are only 10 crops in total with 2 farming plots (there was only 1 when the game was first released) and I find this isn't enough space for you to really be able to turn a profit from selling your produce. Maybe if there was a system in place like Harvest Moons star quality that would allow me to increase the value of my crops I wouldn't be complaining, but so far, there isn't. I just feel that although you live on a farm, you don't really have to ever use it. It wouldn't affect your gameplay at all. Some people might disagree for storyline purposes, but for that I am sure you can buy whats necessary and still move on with the storyline.

Moving on, the simplicity continues when I realize there is almost no point to any of the activities you can do.. Everything is just there so you can sell it. You may be wondering, what's the problem with that? Well, I won't go over every little thing, but let me explain:

Mining- I guess I would of liked to see some kind of crafting system, or maybe some things you need from the mine to upgrade your house.. anything really that would give it more of a reason to exist. Just about the only thing I like about mining is that I don't have to depend on RNG to upgrade my tools like a traditional HM.

Animals/Cooking - Only cows and chickens (1 horse), which means only eggs and milk. This is fine I suppose, but it would be nice to have more options. My real gripe with this, is that there is nothing to do WITH those eggs and milk. This ties into some of the produce as well... There are a few recipes you can make yes, but why can't I make butter? bread? anything that might use these basic ingredients that I have been harvesting. Instead I have to go buy these things from the bakery even though I am producing them from my own farm! It makes no sense and it's probably my number one issue. For Example: If I am cooking something that requires bread I can turn my wheat into flour, but I can't in turn use my flour to make that bread, I must buy it from the bakery.

Maybe this isn't a problem for some people, but for me I was really expecting something a little more in depth than Step 1: harvest, Step 2: sell. Which is what all the activities in the game more or less boil down to.

(OH and I hate lockball.. No particular reason I just don't find it a fun thing to do in the game).

***Story and Villagers

The story itself is fine, in fact its probably more in depth than your average HM game. I like how most events that are celebrated throughout the year are connected to the storyline, really creates a lovely lore for the game. My only problem with this is that every year I have to listen to Amber explain to me in length why it is we celebrate each event as though I haven't celebrated it before. A bit of an oversight I think.

Villagers dialogue actually changes quite a bit, which is refreshing. The villagers are probably the only reason I liked this game so much. For once I actually enjoyed going around town and talking to each person to learn a bit more about them.

One negative I would say is the Bachelor/Bachelorette options. Personally I didn't really like any of them, there were far more interesting people in town that I wished I could have married instead. This seems to be a complaint that many people are having.

I found that after year 1, unless you were really slow about doing the Feral Shades quests.. there is nothing left to do. No point in playing the game by then unless you are someone that wants to collect everything (and if you are it can easily be done by the end of year 1/early year 2 if you know what it is you need to do)


I dealt with 3 different bugs in my playthrough, thankfully none of them were gamebreaking, but when I look at the community hub discussions there seem to be a lot of different issues happening to people, some of which ARE gamebreaking.

Mine were as follows:
-There was a point in time when I couldn't send my dog out to do errands anymore. I have no idea why, the dialogue would just reset asking me where I wanted to go.

-After marrying Hunter, a weird phantom of him was always in the carpentry shop. I could talk to him and gift him as if he was the real Hunter. When Hunter was working at the shop, both of them would be standing there. This I actually found kind of funny.

-During the first LockBall Bash, after defeating the mystery player Bloom said "OK time to clean up!" and I was kicked out of East Village. No reward for winning the tournament, and no Mark Journal/Steam achievement.. I had to wait until year 2 to try again, when I entered East Village the day of the event I was immediately asked if I wanted to rematch the mystery player. I ofc said yes and after defeating him again I was finally able to unlock the achievement and stay to talk to the villagers after the event. I am still not 100% sure if this was intentional but to me it seemed weird and I didn't like that I had to wait a whole year to try again.

***In Conclusion

So that's it.. my long winded review of a game. Let me say again that even though I am leaving a negative review about all the things I dislike, I did enjoy it, and I would say that it was worth my money. I really just wish it had more to do and was a bit more polished overall. Who knows, the dev seems to be very willing to listen to what the community has to say and is working on updates, so maybe in the future this review will be obsolete.. I hope that's true because I feel like this game COULD be a real gem with some tweaking here and there.

Most people are going to be raving about Stardew Valley rather than this - but I'd just like to say that this game is a worthy competitor to that game. There's less focus on farming, and more on being a villager in a small town - and that's okay. It sets it apart from Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon while still remaining a "sister game" to them. The dev is really cool - he remains active on the forums, he even put out a personal fix for me when I reported a bug. He wants to continue adding more content to the game, and will more likely do that if there are more sales. I'll say this - if you've finished Stardew Valley and want to try something similar, totally check out World's Dawn.

This is an attempt to bring the farming/social fun of Harvest Moon onto PC. The creator has chosen to focus on writing and social aspects of the game over the complicated farming mechanics of recent HM/SOS games, and I believe he has succeeded.

The good:
+Well put together world that has personality instead of cookie-cutter characters
+A storyline, complete with storyline quests
+A great soundtrack that plays into the relaxing mood
+A number of secrets to be found in the world
+More customization than early HM games, including clothes, your house, and even which gender (or both!) You want to romance.

The bad:
-Limited controller support
-Low amount of guidance early on; almost presumes you have played HM before
-No method to switch tools on the fly; you have to use the menu.
-Cumbersome energy system: EN falls fast and you must sit at a table to eat food to replenish it.
-3 dating targets per gender, feels limited

The interesting:
*RPG Maker game, which enforces grid movement and other technical limitations, but the author did not use stock art and music.
*Higher level of difficulty as you work out what to do in the game, but no time pressures.
*Limited map system. Hard to find people, but makes finding them more satisfying.
*Soccer based mini game with state increases as you play.
*Poems from a posthumous supporting character introduce each season, part of the atmosphere.

There are currently some bugs that are going to be patched out in a few days, usual first release issues.

Verdict: I think this is a good entry into the non-existant PC nesting game space, and worth the asking price.

As many others have mentioned, if you've ever played a Harvest Moon, then you'll be right at home with World's Dawn. There is very little, if any hand-holding... you're dropped into the environment with a couple pointers and a relatively simple 'Find and Talk to Everyone' quest, then you're off exploring. The first couple days may be spent just figuring things out through trial and error, especially if you aren't familiar with games like Harvest Moon, or the standard RPGMaker keybindings (which you can change, but if you already are familiar with them it makes sense to leave them be).

Once you know what you're doing, the farming aspects are extremely straightforward with no deviation. Most of your time will be spent running around finding people to talk to, or preparing for whatever the next upcoming social event is. Like most games with dialogue, eventually you're going to exhaust the conversation options and there is going to be some repeating until you do something noteworthy, or there is a festival, or you've grinded out the next friendship level.

Making money in the game is easy, the hardest thing, interestingly, is the social ladder grind - trying to become friends with everyone. There is much more focus on the social than on the farming / mining / fishing / ranching... so if that's your cup of tea, check it out. All the other activities are there, of course, they are just relatively simple when compared to making friends.

All in all, it is a good game, and I consider the purchase money well spent. I woulnd't go so far as to say I'm totally engrossed with it, but it's definitely keeping me entertained.

Instead of "just one more turn...", with this game it's "just one more day...".

This is a beautiful game. It's simple, but has so much story. Yes, there's farming and barn animals and romantic interests, but that's not all there is to it. It has a wonderful storyline as well, making this a simple and fantastic game to play.

If you're in it to get rich quick and do nothing but farm crops, this is probably not the game for you. If you like having the time to go and talk to villagers, figure out the secret of the Feral Shades, mine, fish, forage and socialise without worrying that you need to spend 80% of your day planting and watering your crops, then this is the game for you. The controls are a little clunky, but it doesn't make it any less playable. Plus it hits the right balance between not explaining everything and letting your figure out things on your own.

All in all, 9/10, would buy again.

A harvest moon exact clone.

Originally i bought this game on a sale because i did not have enoough money to buy Stardew Valley.

This is, in fact, a harvest moon clone. They did not change anything at has everything a harvest moon has, marriage, plantign veggies, forest spirits, and hidden areas..

I do recommend this game if you did like harvest moon style games. I strongly also recommend this game:

I originally picked this game up after spending hundreds of hours playing Stardew Valley. I'm sure there are more out there like me so I'll say this, if you are buying this game to scratch the itch, take a moment to consider what you like about Stardew. If you're like me and love socializing and getting to know the town, you will LOVE this game. This game encourages you to make friends, it encourages you to get to know the little details about everyone in town and it does it WELL. There were so many social interactions that were done so much better and things that I wished I'd gotten out of playing Stardew. Particularly with the marriage aspect. I haven't delved much into the married life itself yet, in fact, I literally just got married in game, but everything from the proposal to the towns reaction to the wedding itself is absolutely wonderful. I was on an absolute cute overload. 10/10 absolutely perfect and that's an aspect I'll see myself replaying the game to see again.

However, this game does have downsides. Farming takes a backseat. I mentioned before if what you like about Stardew was the socializing, then you will love this. If you prefer making tons of cash, min/maxing, designing your farm, and disregarding relationships, you might still be able to enjoy this game, but you need to keep in mind that that isn't the focus of this game where having 8000 coins is considered rich.

That said, I loved playing through this game, and I will likely replay it a few more times before I've had enough. Absolutely wonderful.

This game can be described as cute and charming and it warms your heart. All the characters are lovable and kind. I've talked with all of them and have viewed their dialogue and every character in the game is charming and kind. The game is easy to play and not that hard to finish on your first play through. There are many mariage candidates and the developer is adding more in the future. You can currently not have children but the developer said that he is thinking about adding them later on in the future. The game now has trading cards and achievements but the achivements have been disconnected from the game due to that some people were crashing when they activatd them.

If your into stardew valley or farming games, or even just rpg games then I think you will like the game.The price isn't too bad in my opinion so you can buy it at its current price or wait for it to go on sale. With all the content in the game I think the price is fair. And the developer is active with adding more content with the game so once you buy it the game will still continue to update. I believe there is only one guy working on it though, so the updates with take a while in some cases.

There are other things to the game then just farming nd marriage. There kinda a quest given to you by four spirits as they want you to finish the tasks in, I believe a season which isnt too bad, the tasks arn't that hard to accomplish. The other things you can do is buy clothing (there isnt much sadly), cook some recipes, become friends with all the villagers, you can collect spirits (fairies, or sprits), and you can cook for a rabbit and I believe he will give you a reward after like 12 meals or so. Its been a bit since i played so i cant remember all the details, (i think he givees you extra land for farming).

The farming is a bit slow at first and there isn't much land and it does take a lot of energy to water and plant everything but there is another way to make money. You can collect recources of the land to sell and there is a cave where you can go and get gems which you can cut and get money for (that was what gave me most of my money), but once you get farming going you can make a pretty penny. There are plenty of guides that can help you with the game if yu ever get stuck with something or dont want to take the time to find what a villagers favorite item is etc.

But overall, the game is charming and easy to play and I easily put in 40 hours without batting an eye. The game price is decient since the developer is adding more and more content, and their are plenty of things in the game to help you make money and keep you occupied, and the marriage candidates are all lovable and their are even cutscenes in the game. Its pretty much like a rpg pixle style of stardew valley but not as complicated and its more charming them stardew valley. I would say that if you like rpg style games then you will fall in love with this game.

First off, we might as well get this out of the way; this isn't as good as Stardew Valley. While the game is fundamentally similar, there are too many little things here that just irk me, which is a shame. This game seems to put much greater emphasis on establishing relationships with townsfolk, and I like that. Unfortunately, it seems to do so at the cost of everything else. You only have two 5x5 farm plots (though I admit, perhaps I simply couldn't find someone in game who could potentially expand the field), which seriously puts a limit on how profitable farming is in game. The alternatives are fishing and mining, both of which are done better on Stardew Valley.

That said, I did enjoy my time with this game. While I feel the map is overly cluttered with obtrusive plantlife (I'm reminded of the last time I loaded up my old GC ANimal Crossing village), I did enjoy the characters in this a bit more than Stardew Valley. I also liked the idea of having an overall goal (and no, gramps is coming in a few years to judge me isn't really a goal); the town is failing, and you have to find the spirits to reinvigorate the land. This game also has a fair amount of secrets, and stumbling upon one is always enjoyable.

There are even a few things in this game I would like to see in Stardew Valley; the option of resting on benches to recover stamina, the ability to save without having to go to the next in-game day, the whole lockball game, and THE DOG HAVING A PURPOSE. Okay, it's just to help find buried stuff, but hey; it does something. I also found a bug that let me duplicate bottles. That's really not part of my review or anything; I'm just tickled to have found a game bug on my own.

Despite it's faults, I do recommend it, especially for people who have already finished Stardew. The developer is still working on updates, which is always a plus in my book, and the game does have a lot of charm. If the developer is for some reason reading this, I have three suggestions; 1. hire someone to clear out the excessive topiary in the village. 2. BIGGER FIELDS! (apologies again if I simply missed the expansion option). 3. Remove the stamina drain caused by running. I thought it was a neat idea at first, but by the end of my playtime, I was heartily sick of it.

I have to say that I really wanted to like this game. I loved Stardew Valley, and I bet I could love this game just as much - story and content wise. The issue is the gameplay. The best word for it is "Clunky". There isn't a single aspect of the game that didn't seem under developed, glitchy, or over simplified OR over complicated. The fishing game is frustrating and pointless, the backpack is badly organized, growing crops is also fairly pointless, animals are super simplified which makes them boring, etc.
The focus of this game, as opposed to Stardew or the Harvest Moon games, is clearly on the townsfolk and socializing. I have no problem with this, but there isn't enough incentive in the other aspects of the game to encourage me to keep playing.
