The Plot 

Anthos was a peaceful and harmonious land, safeguarded by the Harvest Goddess and the Harvest Sprites, who protected its people from natural disasters. However, a severe volcanic eruption occurred many years ago, threatening to eradicate life on Anthos. To save the people and animals, the Harvest Goddess and Harvest Sprites used the last of their power, resulting in the isolation of different villages, and some unfortunate individuals were left stranded outside their villages.

The Harvest Goddess hoped that the villages and people would eventually be reunited. She sent out a bottle containing a letter and a magic key before entering a deep sleep. Now, after ten years, you have discovered the SOS message in a bottle, representing the Harvest Goddess’s call for help.

With the help of your inventor friend Doc Jr. and others, you are to revive the Harvest Goddess and the Harvest Sprites while bringing the villages of Anthos together again. To help you in your mission, Doc Jr. has created the Expando-Farm, a farming device. It lets you cultivate crops anywhere, from mountains to beaches, and allows you to explore all around Anthos effortlessly.

Natsume introduces same-sex marriage with the feature of marrying anyone of your choice, five different bachelors or bachelorettes; this makes the game very personalized. You can take care of various livestock, including cows, sheep, chickens, and more. Keeping a large range of animals on your farm can earn you bonuses and benefits. Additionally, pets like cats, dogs, parakeets, wolves, and others can be owned and cared for by the player!
