The game will start at a Spring season. After the long cut scenes and tutorials are finish, make sure to plant the Turnip seeds you have. Free some space in your bag and go to the General Store. Talk to Jemma multiple times and buy the two items that costs 0 gold, including the seed pack . She will give you 20 Turnip Seed, 20 Cabbage Seed, 20 Potato Seed, and 20 Strawberry Seed. The second item is called Special Delivery. A cutscene would trigger after you purchase it, which will lead you back outside with Doraemon. Talk to him twice to receive 5 Fatigue-Frogger and 5 Gro-Quik Powder.
Your Stamina or time will run out before you can plant all the seeds you’ve purchased. I suggest prioritizing the strawberry seeds, as those takes the longest time to grow. Once done, you can go to sleep.
After watering your crops, explore the area and visit the mines in Swoosh Falls. From there, you’ll trigger a cut scene where you’ll receive the Pickaxe. Make sure to free up some bag space and then talk to Blake to receive it.
Once you wake up, Sandy will visit and she’ll give you a Fishing Rod. She will also teach you the basics of fishing. The type of fish you can get varies depending on the day and weather. The more you fish on a specific area, the harder it is to fish there. It becomes harder to reel in the fish after two successful catches. We recommend going to another area every time you catch 2 fishes to maximize your stamina and time.
General Tips for Increasing Villager Points
Giving your villagers their favorite items help increase villager points. I listed below a list of the favorite items you can easily access early in the game. You’ll eventually be able to access better items as you progress in the game.
- Harmon and the Monkey like Potato.
- Helen likes Strawberry.
- Aries loves Boiled Carp.
- Rem and the Rabbit like Dandelion.
- Blake likes Cucumber
- Mark likes Cauliflower.
- Jemma and Sue like P. Daisy
- Vera and the Rabbit like Cabbage.
If you don’t have the game yet, you can purchase it here:
The first thing to purchase is the Bug Net in the General Store. After that, make sure to save some gold to purchase a bigger backpack for storing your mature crops.
Also, make sure to prioritize upgrading the two most important tools in the game: the Watering Can and the Pickaxe.
The game will basically revolve mostly around farming. Learning to produce high star crops is very important to advance in this game. It is also helpful for winning certain events and festivals that you will encounter throughout the game.
Don’t plant too many crops though. Planting too much can ruin your routine entirely. Watering crops, especially in the beginning, consumes too much time and stamina.
This is one of the easiest ways to earn gold, provided that you have enough bag space. To do this, you can simply roam around in the mountains, falls, beach and pick up the items there. Make sure to free up your backpack before you begin foraging as you never know what you might find along the way.
Mining can make you rich quick but it consumes too much stamina. The good thing here is there is a routine you can follow to maintain stamina and maximize your earnings.
To do that, mine until the minute part of the clock hits close to 30 (for example: 10:28). When that time comes, go out the mine and set your character into nap mode. It will consume around 30 minutes but it will replenish your stamina. Rinse and repeat to mine as much as you can throughout the day.
Mining would get you fossils and other items. Sell these items to earn additional income.
If you run out of stamina but still have time, do not just sleep right away. You can maximize the remaining time by fishing on different spots. Since fishing gets harder after two successful catches, we suggest creating a fishing path. If you don’t have one yet, we suggest starting in Zazan Cape, then move to Zazan Beach, and repeat this process in other locations. Catching more than two fish in an area may result to getting less fish in day.
To summarize, the best beginner’s routine is taking care of crops > going to mines > talking to everybody and fishing when your stamina runs out. With this routine, you’ll be able to earn money, upgrade your equipment, and build your relationships with the villagers at the same time. As you progress, you’ll be able to create your personal routine, whichever you think works best for your goals.
