As with all preexisting Rune Factory games, you start the game as a boy - this one being named Micah (default name, can be changed). He is taken care of by Shara as his alternate form, a golden Wooly. The main aspects of Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon are farming, fishing, gathering resources, dungeon exploring, and combat. Later in the game you are able to craft armor and accessories, forge weapons and tools, make medicine and chemicals, and tame and utilize monsters.

Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon introduces new dynamic AI, ability to transform into a Wooly, inviting villagers to tag along with you, and a more fluid combat system. There is also a new multiplayer mode that allows your friends to join you in dungeon exploration.
