――First of all, I would like to invite you to introduce, what kind of work is “Rune Factory”?
――Excuse me, what kind of game is suitable for recommending “Rune Factory”?
――Compared with the previous series, the game screens this time have changed a lot.
Maekawa:This work is the first time to complete a full 3D orthodox sequel. Unlike the previous series, the game world this time is not only affected by the flow of time and weather, but also changes in response to the four seasons. In addition, I also hope that everyone can pay attention to the actions of the characters. In addition to special actions based on different events, ordinary conversations will also have various reactions depending on the content. Maybe no one on the development team has seen all the actions and reactions.
Live a leisurely life with residents with different personalities
Maekawa:On the whole, it has inherited the setting of the series of works, and the era is probably decades after the previous works. After the destruction of the evil empire, the security organization named Seed reorganized the chaotic world, and the protagonist will live as a member of Seed in the town of Rigobas.
But the stage and story of this work are brand-new content, even if you have not played the previous work, you can still enjoy the fun of this work.
――What is the overall theme of the story?
Maekawa:I remember that the theme I set when I made the project book was “Start an adventure of love and justice.” The protagonist’s position is similar to that of the police, and the player will think about the subject of “What is justice?” from his perspective in various places. In addition, as in the previous series, the story also depicts the heart-to-heart communication with the residents and lovers of the town.
――What kind of town is Rigobas as the game stage?
――There are not only different races in the game, but also many characters with different personalities.
Maekawa:This time, the target of the Raiders is the most diverse and diverse in the entire series. The female role is not only the kingly heroine, but also the easy-to-reach girls, orcs, the noble eldest lady, and the dream monster eldest sister. In addition, compared with the previous work, the character’s personal story weight has also increased a lot. This time not only depicts everyone’s heart and past, but also solves some of the mysteries not mentioned in the main story.
――If you can enjoy so many stories in the game, will it take a long time to clear the level?
Maekawa:I think it takes about 50-60 hours for the main story to break through. If you shorten the time of farming and adventure as much as possible, and focus only on the story, you may be able to break the level faster. On the other hand, this game has many elements that can be played after the level is broken, and some mysteries will be revealed after the advancement of the love story, so if the player wants to savor it, I think this game can bring you countless fun of.
――Not only the targets of the Raiders, but the other Rigobas residents also have their own personalities.
――However, the map screen of this game will show the location of the character, so that the player does not need to look for people everywhere. This part is very convenient.
Maekawa:Yes, this part is an improvement based on the opinions of the players.
――Please tell us the key elements of this work other than the story.
Maekawa:In the farming part, in addition to planting your favorite crops this time, a new element of farm dragon was added, creating an interesting composition of farming on a wide dragon back. As long as you give dragon crystals, you can also get various blessings such as changing the weather to rain or increasing the number of harvests.
We have also upgraded the fishing elements that are very popular in the series. Many places on the map have prepared fishing spots. Players can enjoy the fun of finding various fishing spots. In addition, being able to work together with good residents is also a new element that deserves attention. From cooking to forging, fishing, etc., you can do it with the residents, and the results will be different for different helpers. Of course, you can also ask the residents for help in the battle, and this game also adds the element of cooperative moves.
What is the strategy for the early game?
――Although this game features a high degree of freedom as its selling point, new players who are just getting in touch may not know how to advance the progress. Could you please explain the tricks of the early game for players who play the “Rune Factory” series for the first time?
Maekawa:From the beginning, complete the orders on the order bulletin board in order. In this way, you will naturally gather the props needed for daily life and adventure. If you want to advance the plot, just follow the red signs on the map. In addition, if you want to advance the love story, try following the avatar of your favorite character displayed on the map. After getting used to the way of playing, trying to challenge various fields may also make the game more interesting.
――Will this work become like the real world, no matter what you do, you need money?
Maekawa:Making money is very important, but there are many ways to make money. If you are a person who likes farming, you can make money through this method. In addition, you can also venture in the maze and search for ore, or ship the fish caught, etc. In this game, you can take many different ways to achieve your goal. .
――The wanted monster is difficult to deal with.
Maekawa:If the content of the commission is only battle, you can basically accept this type of commission at the beginning, but at this stage the challenge will easily be defeated. The intensity of this part is set to a certain level, so players who are already proficient in the operation are more recommended to try, which is also an element that this game pays more attention to.
――That’s why it is recommended to challenge after getting used to the game. So, let’s change the topic. Do you have any special bonuses for the Asian version?
