JUST for that I'll send Saibara and Grey <the smiths from HM:Back to Nature> after ya! LOL Hey, you said smiths so....joking aside, Dash, great to see ya back
I did a search and found that no company has made a Harvest Moon for the computers at all...it's weird that they have for the Gameboy, SNES, N64, PS, PS2, Gamecube et all but none for the computer <outside of rom>....wonder why?
NO NOT GREY!!! HE'S AFTER MY MARY I TELLZ YA!!!
*Ellie holding his son glares at him* Err... I didn't mean it like that honey... you are the only one for me... *smiles and gives her a desert rose he found in the mines*
Jokes aside, it's good to be back musical.... after many months of bad waves and self dispair I finally got back on track.. even if I messed up a few things that need to be taken care off... such is life.. you learn with your mistakes ^^
"Off-topicness" aside... I think the main reason is because most harves moon games tend to bring new events of interaction with the user... wich is fairly limited on the computer since you can only stay on the raw aspect of the game: farming, flirting and marrying.
Most new sagas of harvest moon always brough a new level of events and interactivity... one example is the new harvest moon for wii (It's looking great) wich you have to use teh wii remote for the actions.... lift the remote upwards to charge the plow tool for example... or drag sideways with the watering can to water the crops.
Also some elements are always being recovered... in some harvest moons the cat, pig and other animals were removed... right now the are being recovered in the new sagas.... on the wii for example you can ride an ostrich (O_o.. yep... you can...).
A version for the computer could be a good deal... but I think the harvest moon creaters are focused on nintendo machines, wich would be hard to bring something for everyday computers nowerdays.... a fan game may be made though, but it's terribly hard due to the mechanics of the game... it's hard to make a farming game easy to pick up and work with diferent mechanics than harvest moon... "copyrighted" would come right at bay...
That's probably one of the many reasons I'm waiting for magical boutique 2.. I think it's one of the most similar games I have played in terms or organization and simulation.. being at a one kind game to play...
*exales* God I had a lot to say.... I guess that's to be expected for a visual novel tester away for too long XD .... too tired to go on....
