Hello, guys! Hope you have all enjoyed your summer, and although it is a bit sad that it is over, fall brings a few things to look forward to.


As I'm sure you're aware, two "Harvest Moon" games are being released: one in fall and one in winter. One, however is not officially a Harvest Moon game. "Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley" is Natsume's game, they own the HM name, but are no longer working with the original HM game designers and artists (as far as I've learned). The art style is a bit chibi-like, heavily resembling Hometown Story, which was a just OK game, but rather dull, repetitive, and poorly done artistically; you run a shop, where you sell various items- such as milk, corn, iron- that you buy from other villagers to make money, upgrade your shop, or buy 'event items' that trigger special scenes with non-marriageable characters and with the bachelor/ettes.... Hopefully The Lost Valley is not too similar, but I have low expectations honestly.

If are interested in Hometown Story, here is a gameplay vid:… . I would be happy to assist any players of the game, and would even write a walkthrough if necessary (although it's a pretty straightforward game, it's only difficult to sometimes match the item with certain characters or know the order) on our website.

The Lost Valley is scheduled to be released before Story of Seasons (the real "HM"game we have grown up with and loved under a new name, since the use of HM is prohibited), but may tide us over until the good game graces The States.

Here is a video explaining much better about the two different HM games:…

We have not had a good contest in a while, so now is always a good time. Of course it will be fall themed, but will be a bit different. As with Halloween Costume Contest's traditions, awards go to several different 'bests' or 'mosts'. We will follow suite; we will award prizes to "Best Costume" (Halloween themed art/writing reviewed for this one only), "Scariest" (Halloween themed art/writing reviewed for this one only), "FALL-iest" (utilizes several components of fall, such as fall crops, colorful trees, a fall festival, maybe a certain character's birthday that happens to be in fall, you get the idea), "Good Enough to Eat" (Thanksgiving/Harvest Festival themed art/writing reviewed for this one only), "Cutest", and, of course, the "Best of the Rest!".

Feel free to message me or the group, or even comment below, if you have questions, or want to donate prizes. I am studying full-time at college right now, as well as working a bit on the side, and won't be able to really make prizes this time; however, I may give out several coupons to my Etsy store for use on all-ready-made items or commissions, because that's all I can really do. In order for all prizes to be given out, there must be double the participants, so 12 people. If only,say, 3 people enter,we will award only one prize, or if 4 enter, 2 prizes, etc. The more people, however, the better prizes I will try to obtain. Tell your friends, spread the word.

As far as rules go: one entry per person, try to keep it PG-13, no line-art, must have some type of color and 2+ characters, (for stories, must be a decent length, or at least 3 chps., more than 5 character 'appearances', and set ONLY during the fall) and if there is one prize you really want to shoot for, say so in your art's description. Cross-overs between HM games, or between HM and RF games are okay, but no outside franchises.

DEADLINE WILL BE NOVEMBER 18. I know we all are busy, so I'm giving us all plenty of time to work, ponder, perfect, and enjoy. Enter pieces in the contest folder and comment below so that we for sure get your submission.


Best of the Rest Award: 15 points from :iconochako:

Scariest Award: 10 points from :iconochako:

Good Enough to Eat Award: 5 points from :iconochako:

Best Costume Award: 1 full-bodied colored with simple background by :icontheblueberryblanket:

Cutest Award: a prize of a drawing of a single character or a couple with choice of details or theme by :iconxx-angel-sherubii-xx:

FALL-iest Award: the choice of free shipping on any non-canvas piece sold in my store (with a few exceptions) here:… or a $10 coupon to be redeemed at any time in the future (on personal commissions)

Entry Award: All participants will receive 1 point from the generous donations of :iconochako:

Thanks for helping this group grow guys! Good luck in life, and I'll write you all again in November, FARM ON!
