While it seems like an unassuming farming sim, it pretty quickly can morph into something darker
There are absolutely games out there in the eShop that are better on paper or in concept than in ultimate execution. I consider Bem Feito to be one of them, though if you’re into titles that are a bit unexpected and you can find it on sale it may be worth a bit less than a handful of hours to likely exhaust what it has to offer you. In principle, the game (which is emulated on a virtual desktop, tying to a limited amount of meta game fun) is what would seem like a pretty innocent life sim. Yet, even on Day 1, you’ll see a pretty unusual task at the end of your list of otherwise more benign chores. That’s really where the crux of the experience lies, in the pursuit of those added objectives, which quickly get pretty dark in contrast to the generally cheery smile and veneer the experience has otherwise. The issue is that in general there’s simply not enough meat on the bone here to justify what are often the more listless chores you’ll do that are honestly also not always intuitive in terms of where you may need to go and specifically what you may need to do to satisfy your check on the list. For those seeking something relatively light and certainly a bit off-center, which even peppers in a little (sadly, too little) meta game fun as well, this has some flair, but it’s over all too quickly and doesn’t seem to meet its potential.
