Harvest Moon Update

A Major Update to Len's Island


The Harvest Moon update brings a new lunar event that will take place every 5 in-game days, as well as the heavily requested town advancement system.





Harvest Moons boost the growth of all crops and boost the processing speed of the brand new outposts scattered across the map. There are new ballista towers and cannons to help defend your outposts, as well as improvements to the building system. But there's no need to fear, you can easily skip the harvest moons be sleeping in a bed or staying down inside the caves!


Every town in the game can now be levelled up multiple times at the brand new town boards. Advancing a town to the next level will change the look and aesthetics of the town, unlock new NPC’s for trading, and eventually, unlock teleporters!


In addition to the new event and town changes, we’ve packed in many other improvements and fixes. Such as, rabbits, player-built portals, easier vision in the dark, expanded storage items, and many balancing changes and bug fixes.


All of the content in this update can be accessed in existing save files, the new outpost islands will now spawn randomly in empty areas in the ocean. You won’t need to restart your save!


This update also includes a lot of various balancing tweaks and polish to improve the game from start to finish. We try to improve all aspects of the game with every major update, instead of just focusing on new content and leaving the rest behind. So many of the items in the Tweaks & Balancing Changes section are general improvements based on community feedback.
