According to the official game description, Harvestella is an “all-new life-simulation RPG” that enables players to “lead a life of self-sufficiency”. During the game, adventurers will use their vibrant house as a base and cooperate with allies to overcome the various threats that inhabit the world of Harvestella. 

As the name suggests, players will be able to grow and harvest various crops. These can then be sold or used as crafting materials. There are even a number of unique animals that can be reared. 

Harvestella story

Not everything is as idyllic as it seems in Harvestella.

The game’s story takes place during the height of Quietus, a disaster that visits with the changing of each season. It’s during this disaster that crops wither, people suffer, and the dust of death fills the air.

The protagonist is tasked with cooperating with allies to overcome various threats, while also uncovering the truth behind Quietus and the very world’s creation.
