Okay, I love all Rune Factory games. This one is no different. These games are a slice of life type of game where you can grow crops on your farm, fight monsters in dungeons, talk to people in town and do quests for them, befriend the townspeople, and even fall in love and marry select people in town. They are always colorful and fun games, full of great characters, relaxing times, and you can make the game whatever you want. This game is the newest Rune Factory. Only released for the Nintendo Switch. Everything is included in the game for the base cost. You can purchase some character costumes from the Nintendo store for an extra fee, but these are optional. The graphics are usually 2d sprites, but this is the first time in the series the developers chose to move to 3d renderings. This made the game look a little different, run a little slower with some lag, and made the camera flip around more than usual. Even with these quirks, I still recommend the game. The basic game involves your character (you can choose between male or female) joining the town of Rigbarth as a ranger and helping protect the townspeople from monsters for free room and board, as you've lost your memory. You will do tasks you choose from a task board, attend festivals, grow vegetables and fruit trees in your garden and sell them for money. You can also learn recipes to cook with your produce, go fishing, use a hammer to mine rocks, use an axe to cut trees for wood, learn to forge weapons and armor, learn crafting, make potions, and decorate your home. You can also expand your house and even the town. The overall plot is interesting and has many mysterious events and subplots with the villagers. You can make new clothing, change your clothes, and even the clothing for marriage candidates, take baths, fight all sorts of monsters and have boss fights, build a monster barn, tame cute and ferocious monsters, have monster pets (even boss monsters!!), collect produce from monsters (milk, eggs, wool, and so on), ride your monsters into battle (wolves, and so on), train your monsters to water your plants and help you fight, convince townspeople to help you fight, and then get married. Marriage is its own huge subject in this game. You can skip it or have fun trying to attract a 3d sprite. There's same-sex marriage for the first time in this Rune Factory, so you can be with any marriage candidate you want. You build up the friendship level with your chosen villager, offer presents to them, and go on dates. Once the villager is at a high enough heart level, you can ask them to marry you with the right items. And, everyone in town has strong likes and dislikes!
