Peachleaf Valley: Seeds of Love Demo Impressions

Peachleaf Valley: Seeds of Love is an otome game based on beloved farming sims such as Harvest Moon, Story of Seasons, and Stardew Valley. Since I love otome games and farming sims, this game is right up my alley.

The indie studio behind Peachleaf Valley: Seeds of Love, Great Gretuski Studios, is female-founded and female-run. Their focus is on bringing romantic and creative stories to life. Great Gretuski Studios has produced several otome games in the past, so I recommend checking out their games in addition to this demo if you’re an otome fan.

The demo is free to play on Steam and is a prologue to the game.

A New Adventure in a Small Town

Our heroine, Seraphina, has lost her job and home in the big city. Previously employed as an artist for a design company, her boss becomes unsatisfied with her work and fires her one day. At the same time, Seraphina is evicted from her home since her landlord sold her apartment complex and will be replaced by some entertainment facility.

What? Am I fired?
Frustrated and with nowhere to go, she stumbles upon a kind old man at a farmer’s market. As if by fate, the man, Earl, informs her that he comes from a small town called Peachleaf Valley, and the town is looking for new residents and workers. Seraphina is touched by Earl’s kindness and decides to start a new life in Peachleaf Valley.

The Romanceable Bachelors

There are four main romanceable bachelors, each unique in their own way. The prologue introduces the heroine to the bachelors. Through the heroine’s eyes, we get a feel of each bachelor’s personality and quirks.


The first bachelor we meet is Jude, a young man who helps his grandparents run the local bakery. My impression of him is that he appears to be quiet and reserved but cares for his grandparents and the bakery deeply. When he first meets Seraphina, he stares at her and seems to be at a loss for words. Seraphina gets the feeling that he is acting coldly towards her, maybe because she reminds him of someone. I’m very interested to see how their relationship plays out and learn more about Jude’s backstory.

Jude’s appearance is charming nonetheless, and he is the first bachelor I would romance.

The second bachelor we meet is Hunter, the local farmer who also tends to Earl’s cow, Bessie. He is very friendly and welcoming. He also saves Seraphina from Bessie’s rampage, and Seraphina is flustered to find herself in his muscular arms. Born and raised in the valley, he works at the farm with his family and is always willing to lend a helping hand. He gives me the impression that he is easily approachable and fun to talk to. I wouldn’t mind being saved by Hunter himself!

As the third bachelor we meet, Skylar presents himself as an aristocratic, rather flirtatious and charming man. He is an avid art collector who wants to make Seraphina his muse. Upon meeting the heroine, he is struck by her beauty and immediately starts gushing about how her beauty resembles that of a beautiful flower. Skylar has no trouble expressing his feelings, that’s for sure! It would be interesting to watch Seraphina’s interactions with Skylar, as she finds him too forward.

The last bachelor we meet is Naadim, a young travelling dancer who lives in the town’s inn. He frequently puts on performances in the town’s square, and that is where Seraphina first sees him. He is very personable and greets his adoring female fans with enthusiasm. When Earl introduces Naadim to Seraphina, she accidentally blurts out that he is beautiful. However, Naadim is not embarrassed by her remark and instead finds her amusing. He appears to be rather mysterious, and I would love to find out more about him in the story.

There are apparently more romanceable characters to unlock in the full version of Peachleaf Valley: Seeds of Love. I’m hoping that the green-haired spirit who appears at the beginning of the demo to also be a romanceable character since he seems to have some kind of interesting backstory.

Visuals and Controls

The character designs are stunning, and the background designs are breathtaking. The character visuals are very anime and manga-like, which appeals to my preferences. Otome games are renowned for their amazing artwork, and this one is no exception. I’m even more impressed that an indie company made this as the artwork is exquisite and reflects that of bigger budget companies. There are English voice-overs for each of the characters besides the main heroine. The voice actors suit each role perfectly.

Who will you choose to romance?
The controls are very simple and easy to use. This is a point-and-click game, but your character’s decisions do affect the ending you will get, just like in other otome games. In the full-release version, you will be able to unlock good, bad, and secret endings in addition to romantic CGs.

Final Thoughts

The demo is a good introduction to the game, and I was excited to meet all the potential love interests. It is worth playing this game just for the beautiful artwork alone. But the story is also compelling, and it does remind me a lot of Story of Seasons. I’m excitedly looking forward to the full game release coming out sometime in 2023. If you are a fan of otome games and classic farming sims, then definitely give Peachleaf Valley: Seeds of Love a try.


  1. Though I love otome style games and romance in general, not many are aimed towards my demographic as a straight man. But I’ll take what I can get! This site has helped so much with finding interesting games, love it.
