Born from a passion to have a quality farming game on the PC, we bring you "Valley of Crescent Mountain". However, why stop with farming when you can add espionage to the mix, throw in some magic and perhaps a dastardly deed or two and what you have is our game!

As a newly graduated Spy, you have been dispatched into the world to make a difference and benefit the kingdom. Your first post is to the north near a neutral town settled deep within Crescent Valley. The village is in the middle of the only mountain pass between your kingdom and the neighboring nation. A small plot of land has been purchased on your behalf for you to establish your deep cover identity as a new farmer to the area. Your mission is to engage with the locals, watch for incursions by the opposing kingdom, sway opinions to your advantage and find new opportunities to push your country's agenda. Amidst all of this, unsettling signs of darkness are making themselves known.

After months of being silent we are ready to start showing off the new elements of the game. With an engine switch to UE4 and some serious additions to the team we have a quality product that we are close to launching on early release (steam). Here is some information about the game in its new state:

This game sounds really good on paper, I just HOPE that the espionage system doesn't revolve around just tipping variables of -100 to 100 in a specific direction.
That would be such a waste, anyways the idea to make a farming game into a sprawling world is a really interesting one, and I am really looking forward to growing mushrooms to mix poisons and murder some diplomat for the sake of my kingdom's future!
The ideas in this game are really original, the only way this could fail on a conceptual level is if you don't connect the farming to everything else.

Exploration + farming = get interesting seeds and plants from far away, build a greenhouse to grow plants from hotter regions.
Magic + farming = build a magical greenhouse that makes everything colder inside and grow mountain herbs lol.
Diplomacy + farming = obviously poison + diplomats.

I can imagine a few more ways to connect farming to the rest of the elements in your game, but I can only hope you've designed them into your game already.
All in all, this looks really good, and obviously you're creative as far as your ideas go, here's to hoping for a great game out of this.

Thanks! There are many facets that this game can be all about, but RP elements will certainly not be lacking. My background comes from hosting an RP Only server for NWN, where story and detail were a very important part. I am also a DM for my local DnD games (the good type! LMAO) so I know how important weaving things into the main plotline can be.

Our overall goal was to complete the farming aspects first, then move onto the housing and character customization. If you watch our streams (https://www.twitch.tv/riuthamus) you can actually watch as we progress through these development phases.

Thanks again for the concern and great ides!

Thank you, that is actually the idea the game is based upon. We wanted to bring this genre to the computer and ensure it wasnt some cheap knockoff.
