    Bunny aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    I have put in like a hundred hours so far in portia. I really like it. It can be kind of grindy but I enjoy that. The game is much more building/resource gathering/dungeon diving focused than farm focused. You don't water your crops, fertiliser is optional. I didn't really bother with it until after I had an irrigation system set up

    I like the social stuff. The base dialogue for each character doesn't change too much day to day but they all have commentary on the major stuff that happens in town. The playdate system is also fun. Once you get people befriended enough they will even come hang outside your house in the morning to ask you to hangout. If you like marrying in such games p much every unmarried person in your age bracket is marrigable.

    Also a fan of the seasonal festivals.

    It was given it's full release a little before it should of been but the game breaking bugs all seem to have been removed now. Some weirdness remains. Like it's kind of a coin toss on if any given line of dialogue is going to be accompanied by voice acting for normal social interaction and cutscenes both.

    spent all day and a good chunk of the past night playing the steam version of HM: Light of Hope

    its fuckin cute you guys

    pretty simple storyline, and the game itself isn't very hard, but i can see some people getting into the regional variations of crops and crop mutations. also donkeys for some reason? they refer to donkey "wool" as fur

    did they lose alpacas to the story of seasons people? or is there a whole world of donkey yarn i don't know about?

    shrug

    people have complaints about the graphics and the lack of character portraits, but i don't mind it too much. bachelor/bachelorettes are still cute, and the personalities differ enough to make me happy. most of the villagers are cool

    there is a strange multiplayer feature where you find a large gem, keep it in your house for a week, and then a sprite comes out and can be controlled...and if you befriend it enough it goes from a chibi sprite to a human sized gem critter. and then you can marry it

    not my jam, tbh. she is my sweet gem daughter and i love her but i think raising something and then marrying it is kind of weird ( *coff* JAPAN)

    (seriously, those anime/mangas make me sad. stop fucking your daughters guys)

    anyway I LOVE HER and i give her bread or seashells every morning and she is a Good Girl

    for my actual marriage, my first playthrough i'm playing as a boy and I'm marrying Melanie, and for my second playthrough I think I'll go for Edmond. He is a chill Wizard Dad. i cannot stand his apprentices though.
