Rune Factory 4

released on Jul 19, 2012

Rune Factory 4 marks the return of the popular Harvest Moon spinoff that combines farming with dungeon adventuring. For the first time in the series, the player can select to play as a male or female hero, and potential suitors of either gender are also available in order to pursue love, marriage, and possibly a child. As the newly-appointed prince or princess, you can fulfill your royal duties of protecting the town from invaders, or take a more rural approach to governing by raising your own fruits and vegetables and helping townsfolk. Should some dungeon adventuring be on the days itinerary, you can select from the castles vast armament of swords, spears, and staffs along with magic for battle against dangerous foes, or even bring along a companion or friendly monster to aid you during your travels.

I can see the appeal, but it's a bit too rough around the edges for me. Usually I'm not a stickler for performance, but basic combat interactions have some pretty noticeable lag.

8 hours in after being recommended this game as another amazing farming sim... I just don't get it

got bored during the fucking tutorial

sunk hundreds of hours into this but RNG hell still managed to keep me single. thank god for the switch version.

I'd tried multiple farming games in the past and of all of them, this one scratches the itch for one best and succeeds where all others failed me.
forte is best girl
