Pumpkin Online is a game I have been hearing about on Tumblr. It’s a farming MMO and dating simulation in one, similar to Harvest Moon. An additional thing that makes me interested in this is that it promotes diversity in gaming, as I first read about on Tumblr.
I’m hoping to be if not the first, one of the few African American women who leads a successful game franchise. Yay for being a double minority! We need more girls having lead roles in the Game Industry!
However, not everyone is a fan. Another indie developer who has a similar project points out that it’s a bad idea to make your first game ever an MMORPG. It’s probably best to cut your teeth on something less ambitious your first time out.
