Note: The more you fish at a certain location, the harder it will become to catch fish. To counteract this, you can use Groundbait. Groundbait can be found by fishing in Lake Drench or buying it directly from Sandy at Zazan Cape.

1st Year Tips

During Summer, you can fish Mbenga at the Rollin Forest’s Swamp. The place is hidden beyond the trees on the top right side screen of the screen. The Mbenga sells for around 2500 Gold and it’s an amazing source of income during the early game.

During Autumn, you can find Pirarucu at the Swosh fall. it sells for about 2000-6000 gold per fish depending on the star.

Cooking & Recipe List

Cooking happens in your kitchen which you can furnish after purchasing your first house expansion. Your kitchen includes a fridge that you can store all your food items in and easily use ingredients from when cooking. You don’t have to take the ingredients out of the fridge to use them. To expand on your cooking possibilities you can buy new cooking ware and recipes from Cafet in the restaurant. The recipes Cafet sells change with seasons.

Fertilizer and Gro-Quik

Fertilizer can be obtained from the general store. When you apply it, you will see it on the crop. There is no indication to how much the quality is raised per use. You can’t raise a crop’s quality to full stars with fertilizer alone, and to perfect your crop you will need the Seed Maker from the blacksmith.

Gro-Quik Powder
Initially obtained from Doraemon, this can be used on a crop to speed up the growth rate. You can use more than one in a row, which will move the crop through all of the stages.

Note: there is a brief animation each time you use it on a crop.

Clinic & Medicine

Doctor Regis and his Clinic are here to keep everyone healthy and on their feet. If you accidentally overextend yourself and run out of stamina, you will wind up waking up at the clinic with some time lost. Regis also sells his ‘Regis Drink’ that will raise your stamina by 5 permanently, raising in price each time. ( There is reports of the price lowering if you wait? needs confirming, but I bought my first drink for 8,000g )The maximum stamina you can have is 150!

Enerdrink 200
Might make you feel better – or worse – depending on the day

Vigorade 1200
Drink this and you’ll be back to shape in no time!

Regis Drink 8000
Regis mixed this prototype drink to improve stamina. Better pinch your nose…

Animal meds 600
Meds for sick animals. Keep giving until they feel better.

Animal Companions

Throughout the game you will unlock different animals outside of your usual sheep and chicken, and gain the ability to build a friendship with them.

Unlocks fairly early in the game ( around 17th of spring ) when exploring Mount Whistle. You will get a cut scene with the dog, but to unlock it you need Super Gloves. The Super Gloves are among the gadgets possessed by Ryam, and to get them from him you need to grow and harvest three types of crops on your farm.

The cat is possibly unlocked by raising Doraemon’s friendship to three hearts. You will get a cutscene with Doraemon talking with the cat, and afterwards you get a mission to befriend the cat for him. The cat usually appears on your farm in the mornings, but sometimes wanders to the village.

The horse is unlocked by building the Horse Stable from the Lumberjack Shop.

The monkey is unlocked by raising your friendship with Sue to three hearts. Afterwards she will ask you to a picnic with her and you will come across some hungry monkeys in the forest.

The bear is unlocked by raising your friendship with Sneech to three hearts. You will then have to save him from a ‘bear attack’ and drive the bear away, but after the cutscene you can then find the bear from the nature around Plash River and befriend them.

The squirrel is possibly unlocked by raising your friendship with Big G to three hearts. You will unlock a cutscene in West Natura of the boys chasing the squirrel and you have a chance to save the critter from them. Afterwards you can meet the squirrel in the nature around the forest.

The rabbit you unlock by raising your friendship to three hearts with Vera. When you go visit her then at the Tree Roots you will find out that she has found a small rabbit that needs taking care of, and you can volunteer to help taking care of them as well.
