Save the World is an absolute gem in the middle of a lot of farming games. This is because it’s not only about farming; fishing, mining, foraging and even fighting! It’s the perfect game if you had a crappy day and just want to forget all your worries and relax.
Honestly, I’ve played farming games before. Rune Factory, Harvest Moon, Shepard’s Crossing, Farming Simulator, etc. But this? Just wow. I was blown away by it. It’s simple, it’s straightforward and leaves you to do as you would for the entiriety of the game. Any progression you make is totally in your control. From choosing how your land looks to choosing which perks you wish to take this game lets you basically do whatever you want to. If you want to focus on farming, you can. If you’d rather dungeon crawl, you can. If you just want people to talk to, theres 28 local NPCs for you to interact with. If you wanna do it all, the game isn’t stopping you. You should really watch this youtube video if your interested in playing it for free: save the world code
If you like either Terreria or Rune Factory, this is the game for you. It’s a great balance of two amazing games blended into one. Devs did a fantastic job on this one. This is something I can definitly see me playing on and off for a long while yet.
Save the World is the perfect spiritual successor to Harvest Moon. If you loved the original SNES version of Harvest Moon, but felt that the “sequels” did nothing but rehash the exact same game, this is definitely the game for you. While HM was afraid to stray too far from the same recipe, Stardew Valley adds fun new mechanics, like exploring the mines and fighting monsters, or a fun fishing mini-game, and it adds depth and importance to every seemingly small item.
With the addition of multiplayer, it’s a perfect game. My wife and I really enjoy playing it together!
Buy this game, and be prepared to feel super chill.
