A closer look at Hometown Story!
Yasuhiro Wada, creator of the Harvest Moon series, has an in-depth talk about the latest game Hometown Story
. Interesting stuff! The more I read about this game, the more it feels exactly like Harvest Moon. You're just a shop owner instead of a farmer. I think it'll still be really good though.After 16 years with Harvest Moon, Wada is ready to try something new. When I asked if he felt pressure to measure up, he smirked and replied, "No." Wada expressed that after years of focusing on management as Harvest Moon's popularity grew, he wanted to take a step away and make a new game.
Just like Harvest Moon, Hometown Story is based on Wada's own life and his own hometown. Wada went off to find success in Tokyo, but returned to his hometown to explore his childhood. How things had changed, right down to the shops, motivated him to a game based around that concept. In fact, he said Hometown Story's theme can be summed in one word: changes.
