Harvest Moon: My Little Shop (牧場物語シリーズ まきばのおみせ Bokujō Monogatari: Shirīzu ma Kiba no o Mise?) is a video game developed by h.a.n.d. Inc. It was released exclusively for the Wii via Nintendo's WiiWare service.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

In a variation on the usual Harvest Moon focus on farming and animal husbandry, this title revolved around running a shop.[1] Players can choose either a female or male avatar who then creates a series of shops with different designs and utilizes the Wiimote for a series of minigames.[2] The game also incorporates social aspects such as taking snap shots of the shops and posting them on the Wii message board.[1]

Story[edit]

The protagonist has taken to running a shop in Clover Town that his grandparents used to run on their farm.[2] The town is rundown, with businesses and people leaving en masse; the player is tasked with the town, and the towns spirits, revival.[3] Characters from previous Harvest Moon games also make an appearance.[1]

Development[edit]

The game was previewed at E3 2009.[4] Four sets of add-on content were made available for the game; a Juice Bar Set, an Egg Stand Set, and Ice Cream Set, and a New Friends set between November 2009 and January 2010.[5]
