Island of Forgetfulness…?

I have no idea why… I completely forgot that Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness is out x__X
For info on the bachelors and bachelorettes which you can get this time, head over to Fogu.

For those who don’t know what Harvest Moon is… it’s a game series that started in Nintendo era, continuing to PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Nintendo Wii, PSP and NDS… this one is released for NDS.

In Harvest Moon you play as a farmer. You grow, water and harvest your crops and sell them. Tend to your livestock, get the produce and sell them. That’s one side of the game… the other side, you have to build a good relationship with the villagers you live with. You can also court one of them and get married. It might sound like a simple, boring game, but this game is the *one* game I play on whatever console I have. …I’m quite thankful it’s not released for PC, actually. The moment it’s released on PC I’d cease doing any work on my PC and would just play and not go to work *sigh*

In Island of Happiness you can choose to be male or female, so in that sense I categorise it as an otome game 😀 …a farmer otome game, but otome game nevertheless.

    Though, IoH is pretty tough when it comes to building up the island and getting the islanders to move in. It costs a lot of gold to get something built and has a lot of requirements.

    True, but isn’t it part of the challenge? 🙂 I haven’t played it yet, so I don’t know if I’ll get frustrated by it however…

Just an otome game fan. ...who spends a lot of weekends playing otome games on PC with a Japanese dictionary propped open on her lap.
