Gifset I made of the Tragedians portraying the three main characters from Pathologic, from the Pathologic Kickstarter video (The Bachelor, The Haruspex, and The Impostress/Changeling).

Please donate to the kickstarter to remake this absolutely wonderful and truly one of a kind game! Ice-Pick Lodge really deserves all the support they can get! (As of this writing, they’re just over 60% of the way there- and the kickstarter is only 3 days in!)

Gilbert is the second BACHELOR we’re revealing for Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley.  A travelling bard, Gilbert has a unique speech pattern among the residents this time – this eligible gentleman speaks in rhyme! 

“I am called Gilbert, my friend. Farewell until we meet again.”

Gilbert’s knowledge is deep and wide; his knowledge of history and lore will be an asset by your side.  Humble and gentle to a fault, yet Gilbert’s heart is locked inside the tightest of vaults.  He’ll teach you the art of fishing when he arrives; it’s a necessary skill for long winters you must survive! His knowledge of the Harvest Goddess is important to your task, and his wit is as sharp as your favorite axe.

“I’ve been seeking somewhere to plant seeds, the perfect spot for their growing needs.”

Gilbert is a wanderer at heart, traveling from place to place. However, it seems there is a specific reason he has come to visit the Lost Valley. Do you have what it takes to get Gilbert to open up to you about why he really came here, and also convince him to plant his roots firmly in the Lost Valley?  Gilbert is a marriage candidate.

Full Confession:

I love how sweet Gustafa is to your child when you’re married in AnWL. I love how when you show him your animals, he greets them and talks to them. I also love how he still plays his guitar, sitting right by a tree in front of the farm house.

And during times when your child protests about going to sleep at night, Gustafa tells them, ‘But you’re missing out on all those great dreams.’ And your child agrees to go to bed right after, without needing to be scolded. Gustafa is just gentle, patient, and loving.

Being married to Gustafa in AnWL made my farm days much more fun and relaxing, and it increased my love and respect for his character more than I could ever imagine.

Full Confession:

I just got engaged to Wizard in Animal Parade, but since I was working on getting all the rival couples together at the same time as I was wooing him, they’ve got the church all booked up until Winter 18. As a result, our wedding is scheduled for Winter 25. We got engaged on Fall 20, so this is going to be the longest engagement I’ve ever had in a Harvest Moon or Rune Factory game. We’re going to be like the HM-world equivalent of that annoying couple that gets engaged but never actually gets married. XD

Plus, a nighttime Christmas wedding? I’m not a huge fan of the holiday in real life, but it sounds adorable in-game. 

We know some fans have expressed some concerns regarding the rhyming of Gilbert, but rest assured while we maintained it whenever possible, some of the rhymes aren’t /quite/ rhymes — we love the idea but weren’t going to strictly enforce it in situations it didn’t make sense to.  So on occasion you may find Gilbert playing a little loose and fast with his rhymes! ;)
