Growing all the common types of plants and building a farm? See more things to do in Stardew Valley.
This game was released several years ago. You probably think you know everything about her. You gave gifts to the residents and plundered the caves. But do you know about the secrets?
Although Stardew Valley looks like a simple farm simulator, it is filled with quests and mysteries, and some in-game decisions have serious consequences. Learn about the hidden details of the Stardew Valley world.
Many updates have been released for this game, and therefore this article has been supplemented with new little-known facts. We will reveal secrets and give tips that will surprise even the most experienced players.
Go down the drain
Like underwater levels, these segments have become commonplace in video games. In Stardew Valley, the sewers are initially blocked. To open them, donate 60 items to the museum. The next morning, Gunther will give you the key. Don’t waste time and start looking for items.
Unlock the blue chicken
Chances are, you already have brown and white birds. Did you know about blue? Befriend Max to watch the Eight Hearts Event. After that, some of the chickens you buy or breed will be blue. Unfortunately, they will not be able to lay eggs of the same color, but these are little things.
Inventive Stardew Valley fans create mods for this game. If you think that nothing will surprise you, and you have made friends with all the characters, grew all kinds of crops, went down to the deepest mine and reached the remote corners of the map, then you can add new content using mods. There are a lot of them, so start experimenting now.
Grow giant plants
You’ve already planted all sorts of crops – even coffee beans and sweet berries! But do you know about giant plants? If you have a fully grown 3 × 3 cauliflower, melon, or pumpkin and the center cage is watered, chances are these crops will grow gigantic. In this case, they will give more yield (from 15 to 21 units). Isn’t it great? And you will have to collect them with an ax, which is also very pleasing.
Put the mayor’s panties in the soup
The Luau Festival is held every year. This holiday is a great opportunity to impress (or piss off) the governor. To shock him with the mayor, find Lewis’ Lucky Purple Shorts.
They are in Marnie’s room. Take them, wait for the Luau holiday, throw your panties into the soup and watch the reactions of the characters. Marnie and the Governor are surprised, and Lewis curses the city because of this prank. But what’s the difference? After all, no one knows that it was you. This is what happens when you ask the protagonist to find the so-called “shorts”.
Collect whimsical statues
You may have noticed that some of the lost books are weird. One of them, called “???”, is nonsense. But if you add up the first letters of the words, you get phrases, for example – “saloon duck mayonnaise”.
Everything is easier than it sounds: you just need to put an item in a box in the appropriate location, and you will receive the most bizarre statues in the game as a reward. The names are also very strange: “?? Pinkie Lemon ??”, “?? HMTGF ??” and so on. Thanks to them, your house will become more mysterious, that’s for sure.
Unblock the casino
There is a tunnel in the middle of nowhere. Head over there. Pay attention to the panel hidden in the dark. Insert the battery there, and you will find a note from a certain Mr. Key. At this point, the quest begins. Mysterious Ki will ask you to place items in different places (including the mayor’s refrigerator).
Quite an interesting task: you never know what will happen next. What is the reward for the player? Access to the Calico Desert Casino where you can meet Mr. Key in person.
Find secret notes
In update 1.3, it became possible to search for secret notes using a magnifying glass, which opens after completing the “Winter Secret” quest. The notes contain various secrets: the location of treasures and favorite items of the villagers.
Note # 13 is especially interesting. It says to search the bush over the playground at 12:00 on the last day of any season. Everything is clear here: on the 28th, do as it is said, and you will find cute plush Junimo. Excellent!
Drive the Joja corporation out of town
JojaMart may seem like an overkill in Stardew Valley: This lonely supermarket spoils the city’s view, not to mention threatens the local economy.
To get rid of JojaMart:
First, do not buy a membership from Morris (otherwise the old club will be destroyed and Joj’s corporate claws will take over the city).
Second, collect all the knots in the club. We will be shown a wonderful scene in which the townspeople chase Morris and his henchmen out of the city.
Get to Ginger Island
As soon as you restore the club, Willie will ask you to help repair the old boat. After that, he will take you to Ginger Island. There is a second farm in this huge location. You have a lot of work to do. But it’s still a great place for those who are fed up with the Valley.
Play the arcade
Did you know that there are slot machines in the city bar? Games within games never disappoint. Please note that the bar is open until midnight. Tired of farming and mining, why not take a break? Very subtle.
Catch a legendary fish
It turns out that not only Pokémon can be legendary. As stated in one lost book, there are five legendary fish in Stardew Valley: Crimsonfish, Monkfish, Icefish, Mutant Carp, and Legend. Except for the Carp, which lives in the sewers all year round, every fish is available for one season of the year. They can only be caught once.
Fishing requires a high level of fishing: the Legend is the hardest to catch (it needs level 10). Fish are very expensive, but it is better to keep them as trophies. You deserve it.
Some gamers take in-game relationships very seriously: they never cheat on their loved ones and always try to please them. And for some, Stardew Valley is a great opportunity to have fun. So, to express your feelings for the character, you need to give him a bouquet.
Most likely, you do not realize that you can present flowers to all the townspeople at the same time. And if you get married, they will still be considered your boyfriends or girls.
Erase your spouse’s memory
Things are not so rosy in Stardew Valley. Do you and your spouse get along badly? You can divorce him. But if this is not enough for you, then go to the Witch’s hut – there you will find the Dark Altar of Memory. For 30,000g it will erase the memory of your ex-spouse, as if nothing had happened. Plot twist in the spirit of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The procedure can be repeated over and over again, but it is better to return to your usual farm business.
Turn children into pigeons
There is another altar in the witch’s hut that allows you to do abnormal things. Did Pixel Scions disappoint you? Place the Prismatic Shard on the Dark Altar of Selfishness and your children will turn into doves and fly away. They can no longer be returned, so consider your decision carefully.
