Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is a title that mixes side-scrolling action with farm work simulation. Players take on the role of Sakuna, a whimsical harvest deity who is exiled to a dangerous island along with a group of outcast humans. As she explores the beautiful, yet dangerous island environment, Sakuna will also find a home in a mountain village and must prove herself worthy of her title as a deity by harvesting rice and improving the lives of humans.
In addition to offering a fresh look at Japanese mythology and being an homage to action games, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is also an ode to rice and an entertaining simulation of the art of farming.
