really want a game with the tone and energy of animal crossing that is about observation, nurturing, and connection instead of accumulation and extraction

@clarity yes please, i can’t exactly get that from time-slicing between factorio and dating sims 😹​

(also, cool name! it’s mine too, although i usually go by Clara for short)

@mxsparks omg hi! cool name!! I shorten mine to "Claire" sometimes

@clarity I've heard good things about the #HarvestMoon games, although the last one I remember was still like 100% hetero. It's definitely a plus for us that it pauses when you're not playing.

@fuzzy Oh, hmm I might try those out sometime. I do actually like the real-time component of animal crossing (tho I think it's too aggro about it) because I like games that focus on daily ritual and don't encourage me to binge-play them, but I feel like you could easily have the best of both worlds with a system that runs real-time on its own for up to a day and then pauses until you come back.
