Harvest Moon or Corpse Party?

precious blessing

106 views

Hi guys! This is my first blog post and I hope some of you will find this content intriguing. Apologies in advance for poor grammar - hopefully I get better with time. The two games I'm considering playing are vastly different from one another. Harvest Moon (recently renamed Story of Seasons) is a series of life and farm simulation games with the main objective of each game being to rebuild a farm and/or town and to befriend the townspeople. Corpse Party is a horror adventure RPG - decidedly different from Harvest Moon. More about their plots and origins below:

Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town:

Originally released in 2003Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town (henceforth referred to as MFoMT) is the third Story of Seasons game that focuses on the female perspective. 

The player is sitting alone in her apartment, thinking about how tired she is of her life in the city. She wants something new, and as she's looking in the newspaper, she sees an advertisement in the newspaper about a farm for sale.

She decides to purchase the farm, and goes there to see it. Upon arriving, she meets with the mayor, Thomas, who is surprised to see that somebody has replied to the advertisement. Although the farm needs a lot of work, Thomas says that the people of Mineral Town are desperate for a person to revive the farm. The player decides to live on the farm, and the game then begins.

Corpse Party:

Originally released in 1996, the plot of Corpse Party concerns a group of Japanese high school students who, after celebrating their school's culture festival, are telling ghost stories when a sudden earthquake transports them to a dilapidated schoolhouse in an alternative dimension that is haunted by the ghosts of people who have been trapped there. The main playable character is Satoshi Mochida, a kindhearted high school student who is teased by his classmates for his cowardly nature. Three of the other characters are students from Satoshi's class: Naomi Nakashima, Satoshi's childhood friend; Yoshiki Kishinuma, an intimidating yet good-natured student; and Ayumi Shinozaki, the class representative. Rounding out the group is Yuka Mochida, Satoshi's younger sister. 

The game's story is split into five chapters, each focusing on different characters and featuring multiple endings that are achieved based on the player's in-game decisions: a "True Ending" required for the game's progression; and several "Wrong Endings" that are unlocked when the player performs events irrelevant to the main storyline. Characters also possess hit points (HP), which measure how much damage they can take before dying, in some instances leading to a wrong ending. As players progress through the game, they will unlock ten optional "Extra Chapters", vignettes that focus on the game's side characters and expand the storyline.

If I post about Corpse Party, I will include a NSFW warning, trigger warnings, and keep everything under spoilers, as it's quite... disturbing.

Stardew Valley is Harvest Moon, but better. 

Do you get to pet the animals?  Not going to lie - that's the main reason why I play Harvest Moon. 😛

Yes. And there are more animals - I have a dinosaur in with my chickens. I think. It's been a while since I fired it up, he might be in with the goats. Regardless, I played hundreds of hours in both Harvest Moon Light of Hope & Stardew Valley and I'm liking Stardew Valley slightly more. They are both good games and very similar.

       But I can't seem to remember seeing Jana and Jill often together since Jill moved out. I know Jill isn't on the show anymore but from what we see on social media, she is not being shunned from her family completly. She is seen with her younger siblings often, she posted about visiting Jessa for play dates with the cousins and she was at the TTH for the ugly Christmas sweater thing. But her and Jana together? I can't seem to recall. 

      @luv2laugh "I've always been surprised that Jana, who was known as the "BFF of Jill", is frequently hanging out with Jessa, Jinger, and Anna but I can't remember her being pictured with Jill other than at family events."

      -------

      This has been of particular interest to me. Jana was seen face timing Jill while the Dillards were in SCA. So I dont think it was a pairing thing. I am thinking there was a general interest to keep in touch ( at least on Jana's part). I suspect either Jill started giving the cold shoulder[ she said to Joy it was okay to put hub and kids first. It did not mattet what others said] or Jana changing her opinion of Jill based on things she saw of the Dillards. Laura says Jana is sassy but classy. That is a side of Jana the public has rarely seen. I could see her calling Jill out without regret.

      Not the standard fundie 'marry young and pop them out every year' life plan.  But then perhaps when you are a very, very privileged fundie the normal rules and expectations don't apply to you.

      I'm no expert, but I think that there isn't a single "standard fundie" playbook. Some fundamentalists are Quiverfull. ("As many children as God gives us.") Some aren't. Some are Calvinist, or uber-Calvinist. (All children are born full of sin. "Vipers in diapers.") Some believe that children aren't responsible for their sins until they reach the "age of accountability", which can vary depending on the belief system. Some have stay at home daughters and some don't. There are lots of other variations that I can't think of right now. On FJ, we do talk about the Quiverfull, SAHD fundies more often, but they aren't the whole picture.

      I have a habit of thinking of things in analogies, and the analogy I came up with for fundie variations is pizza. At most pizza places, you can order from the menu of set recipes (say a meat lover's pizza or a super supreme pizza), or you can make your own combo from the menu. You can even order a particular recipe, but vary it a little. (Like a veggie lover's pizza with no mushrooms, or a supreme combo with extra bell peppers.) It's still all pizza.

      So, some fundies may stick to a particular recipe (IBLP association, homeschooling, Quiverfull, and an IFB church), or they may create their system à la carte. They may vary their recipes, but they're still fundies. They have a fundamentalist approach to their beliefs and to life. Whether they're Protestant fundamentalists, Catholic fundamentalists, Calvinist fundamentalists, Baptist fundamentalists, or LDS fundamentalists.  

      Anyway, sorry for the wall of text. :my_blush: And I wasn't trying to rant at you, or lecture you, @Red Hair, Black Dress. You just gave me a nice platform to dive off of. :my_smile:

      Seems like Lawson got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. If so, I am so glad Jana is the one to slap it out. This seems like agency on her part.

      Outside of general fundiness and all that comes with it, I don't have a problem with Lawson or his antics. I just think opportunism that rides on the coattails of a blantant lie is uncool.

      I do think something is going on with him and the Duggars. I wonder if Jana is a foil. It could be anything as minor as him working musically with the younger Duggar girls or him possibly looking to court someone close (proximity) to the Duggars. I dunno. All I know is when the rumors were out (again) about him and Jana, the most I thought it could be was unrequited interest on his end. Because I am one of the ones who kinda buys into him and Jinger in a "failed" gettingtoknow-ship. Even if he is now into Jana , I could not see her settling for it. If waiting for that very special one is what she's doing, it is difficult to believe she would give into her sister's sorta ex (from her perspective). That may not inspire *sisterly affection*😉.But who knows. Stranger things have occurred with both these families. 

      Also, there is a part of me that thinks (and hopes) Jana created this account of her own volition with the encouragment of her sisters. Maybe they are helping her break free of some of those Gen2A Fundie chastity beliefs holding her back from finding her true self and inevitably a mate. Because let's be honest, that is usually end game with them. And I don't think it is a stretch to say that.

      Cackling out loud here.

      Of course, old VF snarkers will recall that Edgar A. Guest was one of Dougie's favorite poets, right up there with Rudyard Kipling.
