In case you missed it, you can find my thorough hands-on video preview for the game here. I also interviewed Little Dragon’s Cafe and Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada regarding the game and its themes, which you can read here.
Here is a brief rundown on the game:
The story opens with a twin brother and sister learning to cook and manage a small cafe under their mother’s tutelage. All was peaceful and routine until one morning when the twins discover that their mother has fallen into a deep sleep and won’t wake up. Suddenly, a strange old man appears to inform them that they must raise a dragon in order to save her. Working together with three quirky cafe employees, the two siblings must figure out how to a wrangle a dragon and manage the family business while finding a way to save their mother.
