World's Dawn ...
"The best of Harvest Moon coupled with better writing" - IndieGames.com

Inspired by slow-paced games like those in the Harvest Moon series, World's Dawn allows players to experience life in a sleepy farming village off the beaten path. If the town of Sugar Blossom is to ever rediscover the spirited essence it once held, its newest resident must make it so... That's you!

After moving into an old farmhouse, you're free to explore and participate in a number of activities from day to day. These include growing crops, raising livestock, building relationships with townsfolk, fishing in rivers and ponds, shopping, cooking, foraging, trading goods, playing sports, attending markets and festivals, flirting and marrying, and many more. Even after playing through an entire game year (which will offer 30+ hours of content) you'll find there is still plenty to surprise and entertain you in the friendly farming village.

Currently, the complete SPRING and SUMMER seasons are available for download, with autumn and winter under development and planned for release within the next few months.

Thanks so much for your interest! Don't forget to leave a comment!

Overdue update on the autumn season

Hello everyone! It's been a long time!

World's Dawn is still heavy in development -- I'm actually reworking several things that were causing some people a lot of lag in previous seasons. Optimizing is not the most fun job, and it's been tedious, but I'm planning on being able to release the autumn season with all these fixes included within the next month.

I missed my projected release window of 2014 (not a huge surprise, life always manages to get in the way...) but I just wanted to assure everyone that the project is still very much alive. After something like 5 years in development, it's crazy to think that the final, finished product is not far off.

In the meantime, please continue to share the game with whoever you think might enjoy it! There seems to be a big demand around the interwebs for Harvest Moon-inspired indies, and even with just the spring and summer seasons available currently, World's Dawn offers somewhere around 15 (free) hours of gameplay in that style.

To prove I'm still chugging along, here's a look at the autumn season:

Thanks, all!

Hmmm, I may write one for this, so long as you work on Prophecy. :D
(Just kidding about the Prophecy thing.)
I can't wait for more of this game! It looks and sounds like it'd be up my alley.
Thanks! I hope to hear from you after you've played the demo.
I saw this on one of Creation's "Pass or Fail" and just thought it looked wonderful! I'm playing the demo right now. Can't wait for a full release!
woah, this flew totally under my radar...eagerly downloading now.
I wish I could say that I could write a review after I play it. but at the very least I will leave some nice feedback c:
I'm sure one of RMN's critic-connoisseurs will take you up on your review request...
Thanks guys! Now that World's Dawn has a review I feel like it's a real game (or a real demo at least). More updates to come in the near future...
ooh, this looks cool. subbed.
I tried the first part but what I didn't like was that running eats EN (it was just annoying that I had to walk the entire time since losing EN means losing a day because of running...) and that the intro was far too long for my liking. I'll keep playing though =v=)/
^ based on feedback I actually increased the amount of EN you start with at the beginning of the game. In addition, there are ways to increase your maximum energy in-game, as well as a horse you can buy to move at sprinting speed without EN. I'm looking into condensing the intro as well...

Thanks for the feedback!
wow. this game could possibly be my favorite rpg maker game ever if it's released! And so I'll be waiting patiently for a new release. :)
This is cool, but when i went toward the fisher creek i got game.exe blah blah, and it closed on me. I didnt save either, oh boy.
Sorry for the lack of updates of late! If you haven't noticed, I uploaded a new trailer for the game and plan to launch the spring season very shortly.

If you're having issues with the demo, I would advise waiting until the next release and playing through it instead.

Thanks for your support!
So what this game completed or wut?
Good to hear its still alive and be released quite soon
I'm happy people are still looking forward to playing! Yes, it should be very soon... This Saturday, April 12 for those who missed the blog post!
