A demo version of the game is available here. You can play the game for 3 in-game weeks and experience the farm, the first town and some festivals.
An Early Access version of the game is available on steam. Several features are already implemented and you can play it for as long as you want.
There's no release date for the full game yet, but it's expected for the end of the current year.
What is Orange Season?
It's a farm-life RPG inspired by Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, Animal Crossing and a little bit of Legend of Zelda.
How many people are working on this game?
I'm the only one working directly on the game, but I didn't do 100% of it. Throughout the development I've hired different artists and purchased several pre-made assets that helped shape the end result.
How much will it cost?
Is it a Stardew Valley clone?
Not at all. Orange Season was already in development long before Stardew Valley launched. Harvest Moon and Rune Factory were much bigger influences than SV.
What language is it made on?
Please include my idea in your game.
Send me your idea and I'll consider it.
Why did you decide to make this game?
I've always wanted to make games, it's why I became a programmer in the first place. I even tried to make a farm game over 10 years ago, but I wasn't experienced enough.
A few years ago I thought to myself: "I've been programming for over a decade, why haven't I made a game yet?" so I decided it was about time.
Will you make more games?
Yes, I have another game idea that I've been cooking up for years, but I won't start it until Orange Season is released. If you're curious, it's a game about sailing.
Can I customize my character?
Yes, you can choose the hair style and color, the skin color and the gender.
Will the gender I choose change anything in the game?
Only your appearance. Everything else will play exactly the same, maybe with the exception of a few conversations.
So can I marry someone of the same gender?
How many children can I have after marrying?
Just one for now. I may expand on this later.
What should I do if I find a bug?
Please report it to me in any way you can. Check the contact section of this website for the recommended ways of reaching me.
The game is not working or running too slow.
Please send me details about your computer and information about your issue, so I can try to make it work properly.
