Moondrop

Author Comments

It's tough farming on an ever-changing mountain - when the mists roll in, everything disappears! Still, the mountainside has rich soil and its hidden trails hold treasure and secrets. Use your skill at farming, crafting, and alchemy to hold back the vanishing mists as long as possible. When they inevitably arrive, retreat to the abandoned village of Oncewas and rebuild it to its former glory. The returning villagers will unlock new upgrades and powers for future farms.


Skill-based Farming

The peculiar crops that grow on Moondrop are particular plants. They must be matched up with their neighbors in order to flower and flourish. Exotic plants will warp across the farm, clone themselves, or tunnel away from your fields. A farmer who can wrangle these weird and wily crops will make a substantial profit. The famously finicky mistberry is difficult to grow, but it may be used to hold off the vanishing mists and keep the farm in place for a few more days.


Explore a Shifting Landscape.

Every hike up the misty mountain offers a new trail to explore. Discover new seeds, perks, and blueprints hidden away along the procedurally-generated trails. Each discovery will unlock new possibilities on the next farm. Solve puzzles to learn the secrets of the mountain.


Rebuild the Village of Oncewas

Like the ocean tides, the vanishing mists cannot be held at bay forever. When they arrive, return to the ruins of a once-thriving village. Use the resources you've collected to rebuild the town from the ground up. The people who move back in, be they blacksmith or fortune teller, will help you on your next farm. Restore Oncewas to its former glory and unlock new powers and playstyles.


Return to the mountain smarter, faster, stronger

Like the winter frost, the vanishing mists eventually recede. Return to the mountainside and begin anew. Use the knowledge you've learned and the seeds that you've earned to build a better farm. With persistence and the support of the villagers of Oncewas, you will one day reach the top of the mountain.

Attractive enough with the usual time-management play. But days are far too short, and rocks returning daily after clearing or trees growing to full size in just a couple of cycles kills it.

Game becomes grind-o-rama in a very short time.

During playtests, I noticed that some players (who haven't played farming games before) struggled with the basic farming mechanics. I overcompensated for that by making the first-time experience too slow. I've updated the game to speed up the initial onboarding and nudge the player to explore some of the non-farm systems.

Rocks still come back daily, haha. It becomes important later! :)

nice,would be better if the resolution is decreased so it can fits smaller screens.

moonroof-studios responds:

Good idea - I will include an option for a smaller resolutions in the next update.

a very cool game
