In the game, players can grow and tend crops. They can then use ingredients to cook and even craft items. It’s not all farming since players can also go into the overworld, visit different towns, interact with townsfolk, go fishing and do a lot more. Players can select from different jobs like Fighter, Shadow Walker, and Mage.

The Story

The game is set in a colorful and vibrant world that has four giant crystals known as the "Seaslight." These crystals are responsible for the stable change between the four seasons. The story starts when abnormalities in the Seaslight start to appear. In particular, the protagonist awakens during the height of Quietus.

The Quietus is a disaster that visits with the changing of each season and is a threat to all life. During this time plants wither and people can’t even go outside. However, each year the Quietus has been getting longer and longer.
