Gameplay

The game begins when the grandfather leaves a parcel of land with a small house. The land is in Stardew Valley and work is set out as soon as you choose a map. There are five maps, and each map contains a special feature that will help you run a farm successfully. It ranges from a river, a mining resource, etc.

To start off, you have to till the land provided by grandfather using a few inherited farming tools and some coins to purchase what you need. The parcel of land is full of weeds, boulders, etc. so it is up to you to make it suitable for farming.
