In Seasonal Harvest, players immerse themselves in a realm of enchanting and mystical crops, experiencing a captivating journey beyond a typical farming game. As players cultivate their crops, they must also face dangerous enemies who can disrupt the seasons and ruin their harvest.

Franka's expertise in this project lies in creating a captivating world where players are emotionally drawn to these magical crops. Through her research and design, she aims to create a captivating world that emotionally resonates with the players.

Seasonal Harvest is a collaborative project involving one developer, two artists, and two audio engineers.
