Harvest moon: a wonderful life is video game from nintendo gamecub. it released on March,16,2004. it was developed by marvelous interactive inc. and released by natsume. it has conectivity with harvest : friends of mineral town or more friends of mineral town.
The player starts the game with one cow, and can later acquire additional, higher-quality cattle as well as male sheep, male and female chicken and a male horse. The cow will stop producing milk after 40 days and you will have to impregnate her for her to continue making milk. In addition to these traditional Harvest Moon animals, this is also the first game in the series to feature ducks and a goat. The ducks appear not to incubate eggs of their own, but after acquiring ducks, some of the eggs the player harvests from chickens will hatch as ducklings. It’s notable that no fertile eggs are produced in the absence of a male chicken, despite the presence of female ducks. The goat produces milk for one year; after that, however, she stops producing milk. The goat can be sold on ps2 version for 1000G.
The player also starts the game with a dog, and has the choice of floppy or pointed ears. Later in the game, the player may receive a cat from Romana. Also seen in the wilderness are a raccoon, a lizard, and a turtle, as well as a chihuahua that appears to be a pet at the dig site. You can be given this chihuahua later in the game by Carter.
Farming in A Wonderful Life is relatively complex. The player’s farm has three fields, with varying levels of fertility. Plants must be watered more than once per day and nourished with fertilizer to obtain high-quality fruits and vegetables. Each crop has its ideal growing season, and will do poorly if planted at the wrong time of year.
This is the first Harvest Moon game in which the player character not only has a child after marriage and you will get to name it, you can raise the child to adulthood. Each possible wife has a different son, who will always end up looking similar to said wife, and a unique set of interests and talents. However, the player can influence the child’s developing personality by taking him places, introducing him to people, and giving him gifts related to various fields. At the end of the game, the (now adult) son will choose one of six possible careers: farmer, rancher, musician, artist, scientist, or athlete. If he becomes a farmer or a rancher, he will take over the family farm. He can not marry.
Only in the Playstation 2 games can the player have a daughter, which looks more like the main character than the spouse.
If the player connects a Game Boy Advance with Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town or Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town to the GameCube while playing A Wonderful Life, the two games can exchange information. Initiating the connection requires going to the mountain path next to the vegetable farm where Celia lives in A Wonderful Life, and throwing an offering into the Harvest Goddess’ pond in Friends of Mineral Town. NPCs in Forget-Me-Not Valley will begin to make comments about events in Mineral Town, and vice versa.
In the very beginning, the screen turns dark and suddenly you are in a house at 5 a.m.. You are now in control of the game. When you walk outside, you have a cow and 2 crops to plant and take care off. You have a year to choose one out of the three potential brides Celia Nami and Muffy (4 in special edition) in the game. Well, there are many possibilities with this. For now, it is all up to you to make a Wonderful Life
Happy Farm Life
Your child is a teenager. Being a teenager, your son goes through a rebellious stage and wants to be independent. You have aged, as have most people in the valley. This is the time when you can’t really change your son’s career without confusing him. The ruins have grown again larger, so you can dig a lot and make a good profit. This chapter is two years long.
Your child is now a young adult. His actions mirror yours from Year One, such as harvesting and looking for a spouse. The ruins are even bigger. People say that your son falls in love with either Kate or Lumina, but it hasn’t been known that he does. Your wife has aged. There is no possible way for you to change his career choice now. This chapter is one The Twilight
You’ve aged again and so have other villagers. Some have died, and your son is now certain of his career, and can no longer be swayed. Before you die, your wife talks to you one last time. The game ends with your death and Takakura speaking or thinking to your father about how Forget-Me-Not Valley fares after your death. After your death, a “heaven mode” or free play mode is unlocked.
