HM64 Guide Kickstarter, RSG Contest, and Feb 2018 4-col | Posted at 11:55 PM on 16 February 2018
Happy Farm'n Friday! I was going to start planting bulbs last weekend, but Mother Nature has decided it is no longer early Spring and has several below-freezing nights coming our way. Bah! I did manage to till compost into the flowerbed where the bulbs will be going, so at least that'll be ready for when the weather stops being doofy.

Many of the broccoli and spinach seeds didn't germinate either. Only 2 of the 7 broccoli sprouted! New seeds have been planted, and one of them has already started to take root, so originally I probably planted them too deep. That first marigold seedling already has its second set of leaves too.

Gerry's Guides HM64 Kickstarter

Matt Gerry from Gerry's Guides has launched a crowdfunding campaign to release his Harvest Moon 64 Players Guide for free in PDF format. A hard-cover version of the guide was for sale through etsy, and a digital format is currently available through Apple iBook. For those who don't have i-devices, Mr. Gerry was looking into making it available on Amazon Kindle devices. Unfortunately it would require an enormous effort to publish the iBook version to Kindle. As an alternative, he's decided to start a Kickstarter to fund a PDF and ePUB version of his guide. If the funding is successful, then the guide will be available for everyone to read and enjoy.

Gerry's guide is a meticulous how-to walkthrough for Harvest Moon 64, covering how to get all the recipes, photo album pictures, raising friendship with the villagers, stamina levels, and so on. It's the ultimate guide to the classic game that took him over two years to develop.

If you're interested in donating to the project, even if it is just a little bit, you can learn more about it on the Kickstarter website:

The Kickstarter ends April 9, 2018.

(Finally got a Banananya Cat event in Mura+, but I put the game in sleep mode to photograph it later and my JP 3DS locked up...)
