Gary Jones, Manager, Surrey Docks Farm said: “We recently worked with the team at Rising Star Games when they came down to the farm as part of a press trip. We got along really well with the team and were very impressed with the Harvest Moon games. Since then we’ve stayed in touch and we’ll be looking to work together on future titles. There’s clearly a connection between Surrey Docks Farm and the Harvest Moon series so we thought we’d make it official.”
Martin Defries, Managing Director, Rising Star Games, said: “It’s brilliant that we’re merging real life farming with virtual farming. We had a great experience working with the wonderful people at Surrey Docks Farm and we’ll now be permanently connected with them through our ‘twinning’.”
