Another Wonderful Life (牧場物語ワンダフルライフforガール, Bokujō Monogatari: Wonderful Life for Girls lit. Ranch Story: Wonderful Life for Girls) is very similar to A Wonderful Life in most respects, with the exception that the main character is a girl (instead of a boy).
This mostly affects the story, although Marvelous Interactive Inc. tweaked and updated some parts of the gameplay, and added several new items in this game. It is the second game that focus on the female perspective since Harvest Moon: Back To Nature For Girl.
Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life features connectivity with Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town like that is found in Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life and Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town. The game's similarity with the original A Wonderful Life and its other flaws caused its sales to do badly.
The main character, a young woman from the city, inherits a somewhat run-down farm in Forget-Me-Not-Valley after the death of her father, and tries to make it successful with some help from her father's old friend, Takakura.
Each chapter is one year long (which is four seasons with ten days each in Harvest Moon time) and narrated by Takakura. The chapters all show how the character takes care of her farm, befriend others, and court men according to how the player controls the character.
The game also includes being able to court three bachelors and marry one of them by the end of the first chapter of the story. The game progresses through 6 chapters in the game, which shows the player character going from young adulthood to old age.
Starting from the second chapter, the player character will have given birth to a son, who will grow older and the player will have to take care of him for the rest of the story. NPCs also grow older or move as time passes.
BachelorsLike A Wonderful Life, there are three potential choices for a spouse.
Gustafa - A down to earth hippie who loves nature. Gustafa loves to play his guitar, and is always positive. He loves flowers, milk, moon ores, and old statues. He lives alone in his yurt by the Inn. His diary is in the couch cushions in his home.
Rock - The youngest of the three bachelors, and the easiest to impress. Rock is laid back, and never seems to worry about much. He is unemployed, and can often be seen wandering around the valley. He loves fodder, old statues, cheese, butter, old coins, home-cooked meals, and flowers. His diary is found in his room at the Inner Inn, on his table.
Marlin - The oldest and most difficult of the bachelors to impress.He suffers from an unknown illness. He loves milk, medicine, curry, soup, and good quality crops, and not much else. His diary is located next to his bed in Vesta's house.
The player runs the farm throughout the game and has a variety of different options for how to make money and how to run the farm. Some things that can be done on the farm are:
- Planting, watering, and harvesting crops in different seasons.
- Growing trees.
- Raising animals such as: cows, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, and a horse. You also get a choice between two dogs in the beginning of the game. The dog choice is between a spiky-eared dog and a floppy-eared dog. The cat is acquired by befriending Romana.
If you place a controler in player 3 socket and press L and R both and same time with game in play, (not when you are in item invetory or this won't work) you get a bunch of items and all the farm items +99 (also can repeat this)
If you Press the start button you can get a decent amount of money.(use carefully cause the game glitches if you have to much money.Both these only work in only this version of harvest moon.
