Gardening and Farming
At the game’s core is farming/gardening. You can buy seeds and saplings from merchants. Plant them, water them, grow them, harvest them, sell them.
The land you start with must be cleared of debris and overgrowth that naturally exists there. Once the land is cleared it is ready to be used. If you want to plant crops on a given tile the ground must be tilled first to prepare it for planting.
Weeds, grass and twigs naturally build up over time, each day you play you’ll have to do a degree of clearing to ensure the weeds don’t take over.
You must water the crops and harvest them as required and failure to do so in time will result in the crops wilting then dying.
