1. What is Rune Factory

Well lets say... it is like harvest moon but with fantasy rpg element... you know like sword and magic... monster too... in Rune Factory you need to maintan farm, talk to villager, and fighting monster... im not really good at explaning stuff... so maybe a wikipedia can expalin it better than me... anyway... There are 7 Rune factory game right now... 8 actually... but its just a HD remaster... the reason i like play this game is because of the lore and the storyline... It is really fun to talk to all villager in this game... they all are unique and interesting...


The way i like to see Rune Factory series is like this... there are 2 timeline, main timeline and spin-off. ofcouse this not officialy true but it is how i understand

  • Rune Factory 1
  • Rune Factory 2
  • Rune Factory 3
  • Rune Factory 4
  • Rune Factory 4 Special
  • Rune Factory 5
  • Rune Factory Frontier
  • Rune Factory Oceans
  • Before im continue... let me adress something...RF4Special is just a HD remaster of RF4... it is basically same as RF4 with some extra feature. also RF:O is the same as Rune Factory Tides of Destiny... it is have different name for different console...


    When i introduce this game to my friend... they always ask the same thing...where should i start playing... do i need to play from 1? or can i skip a to the latest release?

    this is the beauty of Rune Factory... you can Start from any series... they are all connected but happened on the different time, different place, different people, and different story...you're not gonna miss anything for skipping title they all are on the same continent and the same lore... if you still confuse... i have section dedicated to pick your first Rune Factory game clik to jump...

    How the timeline work

    ok here is totally not official timeline... again this is how i understand the game

    RF 1,2,3,4 is the main timeline of this series... for the RF:F and RF:O/TOD its just a sequel... im not sure where to put RF5 since i havent play it nor look at the gameplay yet... i want to wait till i get switch and play it myself...

    Pick your first Rune Factory Game

    This is how you pick your first Rune Factory. im gonna tell you without spoiling to much of the game itself... just follow the line that you preferred


    if you're kind of people that cant stand playing old graphic with terrible control... dont play RF1 and RF2...those two had really bad control since it is their first release...it is really basic...but people say RF2 have really good story... me myself havent finish RF2 yet... RF1 too have a good story... and also RF1 is my favorite Rune Factory Game... not many people play this two title...give it a try. and you may like it.

    RF3 on the other hand is like the middle place between good graphic and good control. this is also the most favorite series among people in my local RF group... this is like the beginner friendly to start dive into Rune Factory game. the only downside is RF3 have really short story... but dont worry... you still can play even after completing the story since there is so much item and maze to discover

    RF4 is awesome... like the perfect version of RF... if you want to play... grab RF4Special its going to release on steam in this December... it contain extra feature and HD Graphic... the story is awesome... i already play this for a really long time and i still not finish the game... RF4 have lot more skill to grind than RF3... there is also multiple arc story... which is really cool. im really recommended play this game...

    now move on to the more 3D looking RF Series... start with RF Frontier... well im only play this game for a while... im not really understand the game... it is just RF1 in different town basically... from what i hear from other people... this game have a wierd mechanic called Runey System... im not really sure what is this... or what that mean... but its really annoying mechanic that influence the field from what i heard... it still a great game tho...

    RF Oceans or Tides of Destiny have most wierd farming system... you see all the spin-off are wierd ok... instead of farming like a normal person... you use monster to take care of the field... i know the other RF can also do that... but here... monster do all the farming job not you... i havent play this game yet... so i dunno is that a good thing or bad thing...

    for RF5 im absolutely have no idea... but from what i heard.. this is really good... also the graphic are awesome... i really cant wait to get myself playing it

    My Favorite Rune Factory

    RF1 probably my most favorite RF... i already play RF1 for countless hours... like no joke.. this is the RF that really make me deep in love with RF... i already beat this game for multiple time... i even speedrunning it... it is really show how much i love this game

    RF3 also have special place on my heart... this is the first version of RF that im play.... first time i play this game... im still not into RF yet... but after a few month later... i just get bored and play this game for the second time... this where is start realize... this game is actually good... and im kinda curious for the story... that when i decided to start try RF1 and boi oh boii.... i really love it.

    before Rune Factory... i already into another fandom... yup... it is Harvest Moon... im really into game that have slow life... just like Harvest Moon... and there are also huge HM community in my local group... but that deserve their own dedicated page... this is a Rune Factory page

    for the character of Rune Factory... you guess it... i really like Melody... i have really deep story why i choose Melody... and i want to write full dedicated page for why i like Melody in the future... Melody also the main mascot of this Site... in the game... Melody runs a public bathhouse for a really cheap price.. it is like paying nothing... Gigant Hotsprings is the name of Melody's public bathhouse... and now im use it for my Site name hehe...


    wow you read all the way to the end... thx... i really appreciated it... im sorry for the lot of text... i tried to add image here and there... like i said before... this still in a major development... and i maybe refactor all the section... i still need to work on the other page too
