Harvest Moon (牧場物語, Bokujou Monogatari, "Ranch Story"), released in 1996 for the SNES, is the first game of the Harvest Moon franchise, a series of farming simulators. The game features several of the things that the series is renowned for, such as growing crops, raising animals, doing farm chores, getting married, having children, house expansions, festivals, and the exploration of the area for very criptic secrets not necessarily required to beat the game. After 2 and a half in-game years, the game ends, and you will get one of several endings, depending on how well you did.
