I thought I’d bring a milk to one of the gnome-guys that live in the tunnel connected to my shed. But he just says what he always says when I gave it to him. I guess you’re not able to cultivate a friendship with the gnomes in this game like you can in Harvest Moon 64.


A passive-agressive utterance from the livestock seller.


This crack shoddily covered by a plank of wood in my toolshed is very suggestive. Maybe it’s just “detail” showing how crappy the farm is. But it looks like something that I should be able to interact with. Does it do anything?

Hahaha. ‘Nothing works’. Hahaha, oh man.


Aaaah! She’s onto me!


'Nother sick cow! I better be more vigilant in my feeding. The cow medicine is a gigantic scary syringe but when used on a cow, it's actually just a pleasant little sparkly thing.


I’ve started to make more chickens. In Harvest Moon, they reproduce asexually. You put an egg-bud into the incubation box, and it will become a formless yellow chick-blob after a period of some days. The chick does not need to be fed until it rapidly matures into the chicken-creature. It’s very Brave New World.

My prize from the Egg Festival is a berry of power tree!


The Egg Festival is really stressful. Maybe I am bad at video games, but I find it a genuinely difficult experience. Arrghh! Still won, though, so ha, old man who wanted to win.


I have a feeling, from the way that Ellen, Ann, and Nina stand together at festivals, that they are friends. Which is nice.

Eve doesn’t need friends, with all the attention from men and rascals she receives at the bar.

And no one likes Maria.


At first I was like, “Who?” and then I remembered, Gaby is my dog. 
Guess what, guys? It’s the Egg Festival!
If I had to pick a favourite Harvest Moon festival, it might be this one. It’s the only one that involves actual skill. Actually, this might be the single most challenging part of the game right here.
In case you have forgotten, the point of the Egg Festival is to find the colored eggs hidden in treasure chests around town before the time limit is up. It’s … weirdly difficult.

A fascinating scene that occurred.


Somehow, one of my beloved cows has become ill! The only explanation is that I forgot to feed her. I have failed my super nintendo cow. This is why I am not a farmer in real life.

Can’t say I’ve thought much about it, one way or the other.
