Forager: Mastering the Secret Options

  • You want endless rainbow effects?
  • You don’t want to kill the beets?
  • You seek advanced settings?
  • Welcome to the secret options!

Other Forager Guides:

Wait.. did I hear secret options?

Yes fellow Forager, you heard right! There are some settings, which are currently unavailable in the game and may only be accessed from your game’s save folder. Since the knowledge of its existence is still not spread, we refer to them as secret options. Some of these options may not stay secret forever, but will move to the game’s settings menu in the future, so this guide will get updated as soon as changes are being made.

But where do I find those secret options?
Glad that you asked, dear fellow Forager!
Here you can find your save data for the different operating systems:


Mac OS:
/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/com.hopfrog.forager/


The file you are looking for is called “secretOptions.ini”!

So, what do these do?

Note: Before changing these values, I recommend closing the game.
