What about marriage?!

0 comments

I'm a sucker for these kinds of things! I'm hoping there will be a lot of options for who we can woo into our eternal embrace. The Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons games always seem to have kind of generic, stereotypical, predictable mates. Or maybe they just seemed that way after playing every single game? I don't know but I want a complex, unique virtual partner during my Legendary adventures!

What are your thoughts, hopes, dreams on the topic?

I feel like they will have a few fully-fledged possible romances that are important for the story and have a lot of dialog, and also several other small options. And then of course the backer island with all the backer-made villagers that are romanceable.

ALL the backer-made villagers are romanceable?! Holy crap that is awesome, I didn't realize that! I'm sure there will be some quirky, interesting characters to get to know! I'm too excited for this!

I'm so excited to play the game! It's going to be fun interacting with all the villagers!

Yes they are (:

They said though that those romances will be a bit shortened, just a few dialogs and trading the marriage item, because there are so many.

I am going to quote their message as a response to my question again:

 

We have decided to create a whole new backers island/kingdom so you will be able to pick a profession, talk to players, simple romance. Simple romance would be a few sentences and players giving you marriage items, then proceed to marriage. We're thinking of making vendor type backers villager as well. :)

 

Will still be cool to see all those possible options and interesting characters, a few sentences are enough to make it interesting!

Ooh that's an interesting approach! I like it, but now I'm wondering about divorce and remarrying options XD

I'm also curious what your partners' actual role will be in your adventure. Do they just hang out on your property and say sweet nothings to you? Do they help you with farm work or cook you meals or give you money?

I nearly dropped my phone after reading that. I didn't realize we would be able to romance all the backers...

 

I'M SO EXCITED!!

I hope we will get to see who the male partners look like soon or at least 1 :D! I hope its a long haired dude who is surrounded by magnus because he breeds and takes care of them :3!

You could ask one of the villager backers if they want to create someone like this :P

while i do understand the hype, i'm aware in almost every game development scene there will be technical difficulties that some content might need to be cut or kept simple, not to mention devs haven't put those info as official feature (just a plan), just don't get your hopes too high :)

Actually it was planned right from the start (its also stated in the villager tier itself)

 

"You will become an NPC that roams around the village and possible bachelor/bachelorette. " *from the villager tier.

 

The only problem is they never thought that so many people would pledge that high :P

Oh Man! I already have the designs sketched up for my villager but I LOVE this idea, I hope someone makes this happen! :3<3

has anything been said about having children with the spouses? I always liked the parts in the harvest moon series where you settle with your partner, then a few days after BOOP! you are pregnant with child. also for the main story NPC's if they had their own specific looking child although that would be a lot more work

Aug 26, 2017

I'd also love if you character could have children with their spouses. I'd be happy with a general child model matching the spouse's hair and eye color, etc... Although it would be fun if it randomized a combination of the spouse plus your character's current look at the time.

I wish the romance is like Rune factory 4, where those characters have their own story to tell for someone special to them.

I am actually more interested in character with background and stories rather than generic "fill the bar" romances. And as someone said, the road to the love is usually the best part of it. It will be cool to have marriage events but as far as I am concerned, I'd rather go for lots of events with the characters, with unique dialogs and seen how bonds deepen as the player progresses in a believable character's story.

 

Quality >>>> Quantity

 

Rune factory 4 seems like a good start, but persona 3 /4 and 5 are even better references. I'd even say that Baldur's gate 2 has some of the best romances in videogames. 4 good, deep and rich romance stories is something much better than 200 missions of "retrieve marriage item".

I agree with wanting the deep storyline an for dialog with the Backer NPC's. Alas, I also understand that's they had no idea so many would've choose that as an option.

 

Perhaps (if anyone from the Dev team is watching) they can flush out and add more depth and background to the Backer NPC's in DLC updates down the road after the game has been released.

That way there is no hold up in getting the game out due to so many NPC's needing depth but in the end we have more well roubded and desired charecters.

  • I would really like if they added in an option to hide your head gear/helm. Like a transmog option, so you can chose what your character looks like with their gear on.
  • Hawke seems to have set up camp at the camping area... No Hawke there :( I can't progress because I am stuck on this quest. Any ideas? Maybe wrong camping area? I tried both mainland and forest. Thank you :)
  • to increase friendship I guess I have to feed the magnus I have tamed but its not clear how I go about this can I just keep feeding them multiple times a day? does only 1 food a day count? can I get max hearts in 1 day by just constantly feeding them?
