Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories is barely a video game

Talk to some broken English NPCs

Today at E3 I went to play the new Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories on iOS at the Natsume booth.

The entire iOS demo took me six minutes to play through. Walking to the booth took me considerably longer.

I tapped on locations to move to them, tapping on NPCS to talk to them. Their responses were in broken English.

I spoke to each NPC until the ! above their head vanished. None of the NPCs I spoke to did anything.

Six minutes later the demo said “Thank you for playing”. Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories is coming to Wii U, Steam, iOS and Android this winter. Currently it’s barely a video game.
