Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town - True Love Edition

Falling in love is one of the most memorable moments in any Harvest Moon game.  Unfortunately for some, it always seemed like you had to choose between who you wanted to be and who you wanted to love. I think some of you out there have been waiting for a game like this for a very long time now.

Friends of Mineral Town is arguably one of the best in the Harvest Moon series. With a bit of ingenuity (and some help from the great people at romhacking.net), I was able to edit in Claire (girl) over top of Pete (boy). Now Claire has a chance to woo the lovely ladies of Mineral Town, and Pete can choose between the town’s strapping young bachelors!

To get started, click on the link below. I hope you enjoy falling in love all over again.

Dear Otome Fandom:

fireinanhourglass:

So recently there’s been a lot of hate directed at the heroine from the upcoming game, Gakuen K.  For a rebuttal of that stupidity, I recommend reading this excellent post by danceanddestroy.

The complaints I see lobbed at this character are complaints I see thrown at any number of MCs; complaints that are not based on an individual personality within the context of its circumstances, but instead based on cultural differences, subjective taste, and on the basic tenants of characterization (like a heroine daring to have flaws!).

For everything else, all I want to say is this:

Women shouldn’t have to be written to meet your standard of acceptable for you to respect them.  Strength comes in more than one form and I am sick of this fandom’s narrow definition of what a “strong woman” is, and even more so knowing it isn’t willing to apply the same standard to the male characters/love interests.

I am tired of reading posts bashing a heroine for not being a STRONG INDEPENDENT WOMAN© who can kick boxes, carry a gun and be an unbelievable sass master.  I’m not begrudging people’s preferences or enjoyment of a certain character type; I’m annoyed by the fact that one type is seen as inherently superior to another.  We allow love interests to have diverse and varying personalities but the heroines can only ever be one thing. 

Strength can be defined mentally, emotional, and physically, and all three are equally important. 

There are enough constraints on female characters as it is; stop creating more arbitrary hoops for them to jump through.

Just a heads up: I’m going to be making a few posts for games that aren’t necessarily new, and that I somehow missed in the past. Sorry if these will be repeat news to some of you!
