Site

Farm Story is a personal dedication and fanlisting for the Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons (Bokujo Monogatari) series. I first opened this site on August 19, 2016 but eventually took down the information due to lack of direction. I decided that writing about this series could be a fun writing project, and it was relaunched on August 23, 2018. This site is under construction. The fanlisting was opened on May 17, 2015.

Design

This design is a remnant of the previous one but simplified so it would be easier to read content on it. It's actually temporary, and I hope to some day create a more permanent layout.

Artwork currently features most of the protagonists in the series from the official series art book with scans generously provided here. Pattern is from Transparent Textures, and textures are from louiseandmacky, northerndawn, and shizoo-design. Font is Tingler Print by Missy Meyer.

Why Harvest Moon?

I've loved the Bokujo Monogatari series ever since I purchased Harvest Moon 64, and it's been one of my favorite game series for a long time. I often wish I could go back to the time when I first played it because it was such an amazing first experience. When I was approved for the fanlisting, I knew that I would eventually make this site. I love talking about the series and things related to it, and I tend to rant about it so this site serves as an outlet for that!

Admittedly, I haven't played every game in the series because I was unable to get into some of the Wii games so I skipped a few titles, but I was pulled back into the series by A Tale of Two Towns which I purchased only because it was on sale. While the game has some serious flaws and shortcomings, I actually enjoyed it a lot, and I look forward to the new Story of Seasons entries. Most of the games I have played have taken me into fun and colorful world, filled with cute casts of characters and endless, calming farming. I do want to check out the title I've missed one day, but since the games take a significant amount of dedication, I haven't gotten around to it at this time! My goal is to eventually own a complete Bokujo Monogatari series collection so hopefully I will play them all!

Precious Memories is my friend Crystal's shrine to the 3DS game, Rune Factory 4, a spin-off game from the Bokujo Monogatari series. If this is a game series that you've never checked out before, Crystal's shrine is a great place to start for an introduction to the game. She beautifully introduces the game and the characters while adding her own personal twist to the sections. She further expands on the incredible music and more of her thoughts on the features of the game. I haven't played a game in this series for years, but her shrine has definitely inspired me to get back into it.
