Videogame publisher Rising Star Games, in cooperation with publisher Natsume and game developer Daredevil Development, announced today its first ever app for smart devices, Harvest Moon Lil’ Farmers.
Available worldwide from May 25 this year, Harvest Moon Lil’ Farmers is a digital activity playset for young children – and the young at heart! Simple enough for young children to play alone, as well as with help from a caregiver, players can enjoy all the fun of farming and animal care with just a tap, swipe, drag and press of the screen.
Harvest Moon Lil’ Farmers is the first app published by Rising Star Games and is a mobile incarnation of the critically acclaimed and cherished Harvest Moon farming game series, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. The app was created by the talented creative team at Daredevil Development, the studio behind recent popular apps based on classic kids’ franchises, including Postman Pat, Bob the Builder and Paddington Bear*.
“We are thrilled to enter the app market with a title based on Harvest Moon, a series whose name has been synonymous with family-friendly gaming for 20 years”, said Martin Defries, Managing Director at Rising Star Games. “We worked in close partnership with the series’ originator Natsume for complete authenticity, and partnered with developer Daredevil for its impressive experience in delivering engaging and kid-friendly experiences based on trusted children’s brands. We can’t wait to share the outstanding results of this combined project with youngsters across the globe.”
