Roots of Pacha

If you’re a fan of Harvest Moon-style farm sims, you’re going to have no shortage of things to play in the next couple years. From the adorable Everafter Falls to the beautiful character art of Coral Island, there’s a lot of really great stuff to look forward to.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t add yet another amazing-looking farm sim to our list. Roots of Pacha takes the Stardew Valley/Harvest Moon formula and takes it way back to the prehistoric era.

With this ancient time period, there are some fundamental changes that we think are going to lead to interesting gameplay elements. For example, instead of buying seeds at a store, you’re going to have to gather seeds and experiment with them to see what sorts of crops you produce. You’ll also be need to domesticate your livestock rather than purchase it. Both of these changes mean there’s a lot more scavenging than the typical farm sim.

Plus, there’s a Flintstones-like look to the characters that’s pretty neat.
