The Character you play in Cute

When you begin Harvest Moon Cute, DS, you have the option to choose between the Mineral Town character from 'More Friends of Mineral Town' and the girl character from Forget-Me-Not Valley in 'Another Wonderful Life'. Essentially, the game appears to choose your appearance according to the predominance of bias towards one or the other.

I tried many different permutations and here are the results of each from my own game journal:


Harvest Goddess: Dum-da-da-DAA! I'll be asking you some questions. Remember that your character's appearance will change depending on how you answer. Well, let's get started. Which do you primarily play, GameCube or Game Boy Advance?

Game Cube
Game Boy Advance
Both

GBA

Do you like blonde hair?

Love it.
It's okay, I guess.
Not really.

Love it

How about ponytails?
I guess I like them.
Pigtails are better.
Not really.

Not really.

Now be honest, which do you like the best?

Mineral Town character
Wonderful Life character
I don't really care.

Mineral Town character.

O.K. Your character's appearance has been determined.

You will get straight blonde hair with the character from MFoMT.

Which do you primarily play, GameCube or Game Boy Advance?
GameCube
Do you like blonde hair:
Love it
How about ponytails?
I guess I like them

Which do you like best?
I don't really care.

You will be the character from MFoMT with long blonde hair.



Which do you like best?
I don't really care.
Both
Not really
I guess I like them

You will be the character from Another Wonderful Life with red hair.

If you answer:

Both
Not really
Pigtails are better

Again, you will be the character from Forget-Me-Not Valley in Another Wonderful Life.

why couldn't you have costomly made your own character? I personally think that would have been cool :) I am not a big fan of the fact you can only be two different people...

I don't know how many Harvest Moon games you have played but both of the Characters in MFoMT have 'history' from earlier Harvest Moon games. To most fans of Harvest Moon, therefore, (including me) they probably are beloved characters to some extent. When you choose one, you will remember the other games you experienced as this character... Harvest Moon and Rune Factory are not competing with The Sims. Your character is a part of a general Harvest Moon or Rune Factory universe and history. In MFoMT, you can change your outfit. In Rune Factory 2, in the 2nd Generation, there are a large number of different outfits of different styles that you can choose to wear. In RF2, ToT and Animal Parade, you can play two different generations. Who knows what the future holds? Each new game offers new options and it is quite possible that you will be able to design your own character someday. After all, the upcoming RF3 offers exciting new possbilities in terms of your character...
