 While I was on the Switch store, I was looking for a Stardew Valley/Harvest Moon like game to play while my computer was out of commission, and honestly wasn't finding much. But Marenian Tavern Story kept popping up and I debated for a while if I wanted to try it or not. My experience with Kemco Games can be summed up with getting a copy of Asdivine Hearts from a Humble Bundle and playing it for ten minutes before I stopped and never came back to it. The reviews of their games are typically mixed with some finding them nice as short, mindless little RPGs while others don't care for them (or how many this company produces at the rate they do).

And you know what? I'm really glad I picked it up. I've only played for about two hours, but it won me over with the first adorable cutscene where I laughed at the ridiculous plot. This might be the first farming/cooking life RPG sim where the nature spirits aren't your friend. :P

The plot: Patty, the daughter of a well off restaurant owner, is out for a walk with her brother Gino and her butler. While out, they break a statue and his brother feeds a tiny mouse they find. It turns out that mouse is the God of Poverty and he's now cursed their entire family! Their restaurant goes under, their house gets taken by the bank, and they're out on the streets until the good mayor of town lets them set up shop in an old inn. Patty has to work her way from the ground up with a new restaurant and make sure the God stays happy with offerings so it'll leave her family alone!
