One of the most exciting social aspects of the new game is watching your child grow up and finally reach adulthood. Meanwhile, your character also becomes older. This is sure to be a very emotional part of the game as you grow closer to your family.

Another big aspect of the game is growing crops and raising animals. You can even come up with hybrid crops and upgrade various tools and facilities.
