Protagonist

You start the game with options to choose your gender, and birthday. You stumble into Radiant Valley during a snowstorm, and with the help of a harvest sprite, you settle down in the house within the valley area.

You soon learn from the Harvest Goddess that the land needs to be restored to its full and former glory, and you set out with your best efforts. Your efforts will also bring new and past residents back to live in the village, beside your home area.
