How will the animals look and act? I know many prefer the simpler farm animals but my fav was always the animals in AWL. I like their realistic models and how they differ depending on « Chicken Hugging ».


Interesting question! We're still refining the artstyle for the animal models. The animals you'll see in our Youtube partners' videos are all stand-ins. We're attempting to strike a balance between cute and realistic.

The closest I can come to describing the direction is with the animals from Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild.

If you're wanting to see a more in-depth walk-around of the world and game, Milky spends a lot of time walking around the game and showing off the gameplay mechanics, character portraits, and dialogue!

Make sure you give her a follow!

That's great, Hysuka, that you're getting good press at this juncture; should drum up interest in advance of your Kickstarter! All the comments were glowingly positive, and the landscapes were really inviting. Can't say much else since that was the majority of what I saw, though I did see a peek of character interaction and some buildings in town, which looked like maybe there was more to build, or unlock.

Do people get to build their own avatars? Was the one in the video made by Wilder?


Thanks, Kikki! I've been waiting to tell everyone about them for a while!

There's absolutely more to build. And I'm really excited about the character interactions! Charlie, the red head at the docks, is one of my favorite characters we've been working on so far. :heart:

The player character you're seeing in the Pre-Alpha builds are premade. This will be the same case in the public Alpha build released with the Kickstarter. There will be character creation in the full game of course!

Big yes to rival marriage and any other features that add life to the other villagers after you've gotten yourself hitched. I really hated the HM and RF games where after you picked your bride the others women are just expected to be spinster's for life cause you didn't pick them.


I hated that too!! Perfectly single bachelors and batchelorettes would just walk around as if they didn't have aspirations of getting married and having kids themselves. It always makes it seem like everything stops after you get married which we want to avoid.

How do you think we should go about pairing villagers that you don't choose to marry?


This can be complicated. I recall in RF2 (I think) that you basically pic your spouse, and then others had set match ups with what was left. Though, stealing Cecilia from Jake during their wedding was one of the highlights of my gaming life, I'll never forget that. But this is the easiest, just let the PC pick who they want, and match up what's left.

To add more complication to it, you could, like you can in Fire Emblem, let the player help set up the other pairings. In fact thinking about it I really like how FE let's you pick yours, then help build relationships with others that may or may not match up later. This, can get complicated for sure, but it's like the best of both worlds.

Course another option, that I'm personally not fond of, is having everyone racing to get hitched, with the PC in the middle of it. This requires the PC to dedicate some serious time to spouse hunting (if they want one) which means less time farming, mining, crafting, etc.

One thing I would like to add, is I love it when I am hunted. For example I may have my eye on a couple people for being a potential spouse, then all the sudden some person I didn't pay a lot of attention to shows up at my farm saying they made an extra apple pie and wanted to give it to me. I'm suddenly like "Who are you again?", and I'm suddenly interested in them. The later HM and RF games have gotten better with the potentials showing some interesting in the PC, which is great since in the older games the PC did ALL THE WORK (looking at you Popuri ... ... here's another egg).



Stealing Cecilia from Jake was my favorite moment of all time in Rune Factory. :twisted:

The only time I can think of a marriageable candidate going after the player instead was in AWL. When Celia approaches you during the winter if you haven't been wooing anyone. (lol I think it was more the game saying "you dummy hurry up and get married so we can move on to the next chapter of the game!" though.) So I really like the idea of the player being pursued as well. It gives the other characters a sense of agency.
