About the team

We’ve uploaded a page with all the team’s info, make sure to check it out.

Are you guys ready to hear more about some familiar faces?
These are just four of the citizens of Roseburg, and you’ll meet many more as we reveal more information, and of course, when you play the game.

You’ve been a “city slicker” all your life, and you’ve worked hard to get to where you are: specifically, an upstanding employee of the Antedeluvian Building Company. In fact, through hard work, diplomacy, and dedication, you have become one of the right hand favorites of the CEO, Mr. Antedeluvian himself! One day he sends you on a business trip: last stop, the tiny farm town of Roseburg. Your mission is to inform the townspeople that Mr. Antedeluvian plans to buy, and then destroy, their town, in order to make room for a new highway the Antedeluvian Building Company plans on installing through the countryside.Upon arriving in Roseburg, however, you’re too charmed by the kind and interesting townspeople to actually get around to giving them the bad news. This doesn’t make Mr. Antedeluvian too happy when he arrives, and the ungrateful jerk fires you right in front of the townspeople.You’ve been working too hard for this sort of treatment! Luckily, the townspeople take you in, as long as you band together with them against the Antedeluvian Building Company. It’s a hard change to move from your cozy life in the city to life in the countryside, but the people of Roseburg are kind and generous, and soon you make friends…and maybe get a date.But standing up to Mr. Antedeluvian and his plans is still going to be tough. Are you ready to take on that challenge?

Concept Map for Roseburg
Some notes: Number 1 is the player’s house, the outlined green areas are where the player will be able to grow flowers/crops and a forest area to the right.
Some buildings present in Roseburg: A tailor, a bakery and a flower shop. What do you think the others will be?

[WIP] This is the tileset we are using for the flowers and crops in the game. The player will be able to grow a selection of 30 crops including flowers, berries and vegetables.
Progress has also been made in terms of character design and story writing, expect more updates on those topics later next week.
If you wish to use this tileset for your own project and want the transparent version or the psd file, feel free to contact me. I’ll gladly send it to you.

We need a little feedback on this, we’d appreciate you taking the time to answer. You can leave a reply on this post or if you prefer your answer to be anonymous you can leave it here.
Keep in mind we’re taking the feedback on this poll in consideration when creating the characters of the game. Thanks in advance.
Does this character look more like a boy, a girl, neither, both?
On a scale of 1 to 5, how much do you like the design?
Do you like playing as pre-designed characters?
Any other thoughts you have on selecting genders on games like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing that we should keep in mind?

These will be some of your new neighbors on Roseburg, they are joining Lisa, Seth and Victor for the cast of this new game!
This is not the complete cast since we have 20 characters planned in total, please wait for future updates on their personalities, background and more characters.
Two of the characters above are joining Seth and Lisa on the marriageable characters list, can you guess which ones?
If you wish to make part of the project as a dialogue writer, musician or artist please let me know, we have a few open positions.
As always, thank you so so much for all of your support and please stay around for updates and details on this new project!

HUD Design for the new project.
Teresa and I are also working on character designs, we’ve got more than half of the characters designed but before we reveal anything we want to make sure we have a solid cast :)
I also worked on more technical elements and started working on the new crop list.
I’ve decided that since this is a smaller project, I’ll post updates more often. If you wish to make part of the project as a dialogue writer, musician or artist please let me know, we have a few open positions.

[UPDATES] Hiatus and new projects announcement.

Hi, I’m really sorry for the lack of update the last couple of weeks, uni is finally over for the semester and I can go back to work on my projects full time. However I do have bad news for you, I have decided to stop working on Moonlight Tales for the time being and focus my time in other projects. 

This doesn’t mean I’m dropping Moonlight Tales or Farm Stories all together, I decided I’ll start working on a new (and smaller) Farm Stories game. This new game will be set in a brand new town with a new cast of characters! Seth, Lisa, Lavender and Victor will make appearances as npcs on this new game as well. 

I’m using all the progress already made in terms of sprites, portraits, music, sound effects and programming, so we’re not starting from scratch, we’re just taking the project into a new direction! Right now we’re on the early stages of pre-production, pitching some details on the storyline and character design. Once we’re done with that, progress will come very smoothly since, as I said before, there’s a lot that’s been already made.

I’ll come back to working on Moonlight Tales once I finish this new project. The reason behind this sudden change is because I got a bit overwhelmed with the project as it was (it was too big and ambitious for my first farm simulation project).

The tumblr name of this blog has been changed from moonlighttales to farmstorygames, you can still visit us as farmstories.co.vu and write us at fsmoonlighttales@gmail.com. We’re always open to suggestions and feedback. 

If you wish to make part of the project as a dialogue writer, musician or artist please let me know, we have a few open positions.

As always, thank you so so much for all of your support and please stay around for updates and details on this new project!
