Greg, the player's uncle,[not in citation given] is not able to take care of his farm any more, so he hands over the responsibility of caring for the farm to the player. The game starts with a scarecrow teaching the player about harvesting wheat.
By selling goods, the player earns coins, used to buy production buildings and decoration items, and experience points (XP), used to level up. Players form into "neighbourhoods" in which members can assist each other when in need and use a chat function.
