Harvest Moon DS: Island of Happiness (牧場物語キミと育つ島 Bokujō Monogatari: Kimi to Sodatsu Shima, lit. Ranch Story: The Island Grows With You) is a farming simulation game developed by Marvelous Interactive and published by Natsume.

It is the fourth Harvest Moon game on Nintendo DS. Like previous titles in DS series, Island of Happiness utilises the stylus, and also features WiFi capabilities.

Plot

You can choose to play as a male character, Mark or a female character, Chelsea. The main character is an aspiring farmer who wants to begin a new life on a far away island. The story starts with the player boarding a ship that will take him/her from the city to an island to start a new life. Whilst you are on the boat, there's a violent storm at sea. The ship you are in is hit by a lightning bolt and gets destroyed.

A man named Taro finds you on the beach and checks on the main character, waking him/her up. He was on the boat with the rest of his family, and you are all now shipwrecked on this island. Taro takes Player to the top of island and finds an old abandoned ranch. He asks if you want to be the rancher of this island. You will automatically agree.

Gameplay

All movements and actions are done using the touch screen, with the D-Pad used to change/equip tools and items. The game uses Wi-fi to enable an online farm ranking service and an online voice chat session using the DS Microphone.

The characters of Island of Happiness are all new characters to the Harvest Moon franchise. Additionally, there are some characters to unlock when players meet certain requirements such as building up the island or getting a certain item.
