* ''My Time at Portia''



** Natsume has done this several times. They've changed references of alcohol to "juice" and "soda" (though most games include alcoholic references), taken out the thinly veiled GayOption in one game, and removed religious references in a few games (most, including the SNES title, keep them completely intact). They also changed lines in some games, especially in the Wii games; Gil had an infamous line about wanting to lock you in a basement, which was changed in the translation.

** Natsume has done this several times. They've changed references of alcohol to "juice" and "soda" (though most games include alcoholic references), references) in at least two game, taken out the thinly veiled GayOption in one game, ''DS Cute'', and removed religious references in a few games (most, including the SNES title, keep them completely intact). They also changed lines in some games, especially in the Wii games; Gil had an infamous line about wanting to lock you in a basement, which was changed in the translation.













** In the first few games you either had to buy a separate game to play as a woman or you couldn't play as a woman ''period''. This was subverted starting with ''Magical Melody'', which allows you to pick a male or female protagonist at the start (and it's been argued newer games put more focus on the female protagonist due to the large amount of female fans). You also could not play past marriage in the first two games a female protagonist was allowed.

** Character archetypes are used very often in most games, to the point where it's a ritual to some fans. The (usually) hot Asian doctor, the baker, the antisocial quiet guy, the player, the {{Tsundere}}, the {{Bokukko}}, the shy {{Meganekko}}, etc.

** Lyla from ''Harvest Moon Save The Homeland'' is a pink haired woman with her EyesAlwaysShut who has a job selling seeds and flowers. This sounds exactly like Lillia from ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' who in turn is an substitute for Nina's mother from the [[VideoGame/HarvestMoon1 SNES game]]. It's justified with Lillia as Nina is her mother.

Added DiffLines:

* FriendshipAsCourtship: In most games, there are few if any actual dates. You just give them gifts, see their heart events, and marry them. Most games don't even have you kiss your love interests before marriage. Starting with ''Animal Parade'', more formal dates have popped up in the series.

Some games have an UnexpectedGameplayChange or two; ''VideoGame/RuneFactory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon'' for the DS has a fantasy setting and some RPG-style elements, such as the ability to fight monsters (and with the releases of RF 2 (DS) and Frontier (Wii), has become a full-fledged SpinOff Series), while in ''[[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon]]'' for the PSP, the player character is actually a RidiculouslyHumanRobot.
