Farethere City

Farethere City (Japanese: Minoniyoku City) is an adventure game by Segawa made in RPG Maker 2000.
It has no battles, three endings, and quite a bit of optional content.

Pigula, a boy full of curiosity, moves into a new home in peaceful Farethere City.
His dream is to open a general store to provide people the things they want.
He's told of a property up for sale that's ideal for his store, and begins to prepare as he gets used to town.

Supported Platforms
The game's engine is made for Windows only, with no native support for other platforms.
The multi-platform EasyRPG Player mimics the behavior of RM2K and RM2K3, but may not always be exact.
Also, for Macs, you can try a general-purpose tool like WineBottler.


Make sure to extract the game to its own folder instead of running directly from the ZIP file.
If you don't do so, any saves made will be lost the next time you run the game.

If you get a DirectDraw error, right-click the EXE, go to Properties, Compatibility, and try other compatibility modes.

If the font doesn't seem correct, download and install the MS Gothic font.

RPG Maker 2000 has some inherent, unfixable control bugs ("automatically moving in a direction" or "no buttons work").
The issues often seem to involve gamepads, or getting "stuck" on an input if Shift and a Numpad key are pressed simultaneously.
Thus, try fiddling with gamepads and your keyboard until it fixes. (Reinstalling the game likely won't help.)

If you get "not implemented" errors on or near startup, make sure you have a working sound device (speakers/headphones).
It can also occur mid-game if your system doesn't like a particular MP3, in which case, try to delete or replace the file in Music.

You may get "RPG Maker 2000/2003 RTP is not installed" or missing file errors on startup.
This can happen if the path contains special symbols, causing files (including RPG_RT.ini) to not be found.
Try moving the game folder somewhere without any special symbols in the path.

Usage Notes

Videos and live streams are allowed.
Fanworks are allowed if they are clearly stated as fanworks and "are not made with the intent of profit."
Segawa leaves it up to your own good sense where the border for this lies.
(It states "if it's within the realm of hobby," so selling at conventions is likely fine.)
