Stardew Valley” has just launched on the Nintendo Switch, giving you the opportunity to experience the Farming life again. That said, there are also plenty of newcomers to the series. The game can be pretty daunting at first, especially since there are so many things to do. Aside from farming, you can fish, mine, forage, and so much more. Here are a few Tips to help you get started in “Stardew Valley.”

Upgrade your tools

At the start of the game, you’ll have your basic farming tools at your disposal. They can help you get the job done, but they aren’t anything too special.

There’s a blacksmith in town who can upgrade your equipment to cover more ground. According to Red Bull, you should start upgrading once you have enough money. You’ll aside need to the required bars to upgrade your tools, so make sure to visit the mines from time to time.

When you upgrade your tool, you won't be able to use it for one day. Because of this, you should usually upgrade your water can when it will rain the next day, or at the end of the month. That way, your crops won’t suffer a day without water.

Repair the beach bridge

If you stroll down to the beach, you’ll find a broken bridge near the east side. To repair it, you’ll need 300 wood. While the task might seem daunting, it’s actually worth repairing the bridge since there are plenty of precious shells on the other side.

If you’re struggling for money, you can sell these shells for some quick cash.

Focus on artisan goods

Once you start leveling your foraging and farming skills, you’ll have more options to make some artisan machines. You can transform berries into wine and make eggs into mayonnaise. Needless to say, you’ll make more money this way instead of shipping the normal items.

Before shipping in plain goods, try making them into artisan goods first.

Check the TV

Before you leave your house every morning, make sure to check the TV. You can find plenty of information there, ranging from the news to new recipes. Checking the weather is crucial, so you know how to plot your day. Meanwhile, the fortune teller will tell you your luck for the day.

The lower it is, the more monsters will appear in the mines. If it’s good luck, you’ll earn more ores.

Share your stuff

There are plenty of villagers in Pelican Town that you can befriend. If you give them gifts, they’ll mail you food and recipes. There’s a lot of benefits that come with becoming part of the community, and that includes getting married. Take the time to give the townsfolk some gifts and increase your reputation in the town.
