+ 0.25 ( July 14 2007 )

- Huge update, added tons.

- Decided to scrap the old change logs since this hasn't been posted on

GameFAQS.com yet, decided to use .25 as version due to the fact that I

am done spring and that is 25 percent through year 1. Jewel guide and

livestock guide will be in the next version.





-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

II. Introduction

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



After writing some private FAQ's for different games, I have decided to finally

write one for "Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon" because each of the

other Harvest Moon Series games have been a good thing to write a first

FAQ / Walkthrough for. Having played all of the other games in the series other

than "Rune Factory", which looks like it is going to flop miserably due to the

fact that the main character wields a sword.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Basic Storyline

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



The game starts out a bit differently than any of the other titles in the

Harvest Moon Series. You do not choose anything but your name. You do not start

with a dog. You do not get all basic tools at the start. You start out in the

year 2022 on a small island in the southern hemisphere. You are a robot who is

going to be sent to work, doing "real farming". But first you must be taught

how to farm on a virtual farm by Gayak. To save the island you must truly

farm the land, and bring back life to it. This will appease the gods and break

the seals on the fertile land.





-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Controls / Game play

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Before getting to the controls you should know a lot has changed in terms of

how you can play the game.



1) You can now walk through crops.

2) Plants are not destroyed when you pick them up and throw them, instead they

just end up back on a plot of land.

3) Tools can no longer be leveled up by using them when they are not needed,

an example of this is you can't use your hoe when the land is not tillable.

4) Time no longer waits for you, even when indoors the time still passes, but

only at 1/3 the normal speed. Note: Only on your farm, elsewhere time stops

while you are indoors.

5) You must unlock plots of land on your farm.

6) You plant seeds 1x1 not 9x9

7) You no longer have to manually count how many times you use a tool till it

levels up, the game keeps count for you.



Controls:

Button set up as follows: In game / Menu



L - Inventory / No Function

R - Main Menu / No Function

D-pad - Walk / Navigate

Analog stick - Run / Navigate

Triangle - Talk, Examine, Use tool, Pick up object / Accept

Square - Cycle backward through Inventory / N/A

Circle - Put item in hands into Inventory, Use Item/Seed box or Trash / Cancel

X - Cycle forward through Inventory / Accept

Select - No Function / No Function

Start - No Function / No Function



Game play tips

1) To pause, open up your Inventory or Main Menu, as time does not pass there.

2) To get rid of weeds just pick them up and use circle to put them in your

inventory, then hit square to send them to the trash.

3) You can save by going to you player info in the Main Menu, but can only be

done outside.

4) Time does not pass when talking to people, so take your time with decisions.
