A multi-system farming simulation video game series. The player moves onto an abandoned or inherited farm and must rejuvenate their new hometown.
Known as "Bokujou Monogatari (牧場物語/Pasture Story)" in Japan.
In 2014, the series (as it follows Bokujou Monogatari) is now known by the name Story of Seasons in the West, since Natsume owns the rights to the ''Harvest Moon'' name.
The video game series Rune Factory is a spin-off of the Harvest Moon series; taking the game elements of Harvest Moon and combining them with fantasy RPG game elements.
