In Runaway Princess, you play the role of a peaceful seeming farmer. You live daily life with Elly. You get to walk around the village and talk to the inhabitants and their schedules. All seems well until something strange occurs and you have to figure out what is going on and where it all will lead. There may seem to be no purpose in all this weirdness and seemingly peaceful town, but soon you will know the difference and be able to figure it all out if you make the right choices and talk to the right villagers.
