Moonlight In Garland – Romance Guide

Moonlight In Garland is a cozy open-ended life sim. Like other sim games of the past such as Animal Crossing and The Sims, you’ve entered a new world where you can choose the kind of life that you’d like to live. You begin your journey by a move into the city of Garland. This bustling metropolis has lots of areas for you to explore and people for you to meet. Start by choosing where you want to live, will it be in the ultra-modern central business district of Garland or will you prefer a quieter more historiacal neighbourhood?

Once you’ve set down some roots you can choose to be a part of the community. Do this by making friends, getting involved in community projects and even solving local mysteries. Take each day as it comes but remember to make time for love. Garland is host to a vibrant cast of city folk that you’ll encounter and some you’ll be able to develop deep relationships with.

In this Moonlight in Garland guide we’ll go through all the romanceable singles in the city. Who they are, what they like and where to find them!

Disclaimer: Moonlight In Garland was released on the 23rd of October 2023 in Early Access. As such information in this guide is subject to changes and additions. We’ll be adding more to this guide as the game updates!
