Stamina and All Power Berries Hints

If you lose all of your stamina, you will start the next day with less stamina than normal. Stamina can be restored by using medicine, eating food, or resting in the Hot Spring.

It is also possible to increase your maximum stamina by using Power Berries. There are 10 total Power Berries that you can find or unlock throughout the game, starting with the very first one on your farm itself. If you’re having trouble finding all of the Power Berry locations, use the video guide below for help.

Mines - passing of time Hints

When you’re in the mines, time does not pass normally the way it does during other parts of the game. Instead, time will move ahead by a minute every time you change floors in the mine.

Fish without using stamina Hints

There is a trick that lets you fish without using up stamina. All you need to do is fish during an event where the game allows you free actions, such as during a festival. You won’t use stamina, so if you fish at this point, you’ll be able to keep fishing as long as you want. When you finish up the event and go home, you’ll keep all your fish and your stamina will be the same as it was before the event started.

Note: since this is an exploit, it is possible that it will be patched. However, it was present in the original version of the game as well.

How to marry a marriage candidate Hints

To start dating a marriage candidate, you’ll need to see a Blue Heart Event, which then activates an event with Jeff on the next time you leave your house on a sunny day (aside from Tuesdays or Sundays) that will unlock the Preserved Flower item.

Give a Preserved Flower to a character you want to date. You’ll need to have reached at least the level of a green heart with them and have seen their first four Heart Events. If so, they’ll accept the gift and you’ll begin dating them, which allows you to see the rest of their Heart Events.

To marry a character, you will need to raise your relationship with them and see all of their Heart Events, until they display a red heart whenever you talk to them. You’ll also need to have upgraded your house all the way to the Big House, and buy the Large Bed.

Once you’ve reached the Red Heart Event with at least one character, you’ll be able to buy a Blue Feather. Present this to the character you want to marry, and if all of the requirements are met, they’ll accept and you’ll hold the wedding seven days later.

Available marriage candidates are:

  • Ann
  • Mary
  • Elli
  • Popuri
  • Karen
  • Harvest Goddess
  • Rick
  • Cliff
  • Doctor
  • Kai
  • Gray
  • Won
  • Gourmet
  • Kappa

In the original game, marriage candidates could only be dated and married by a player character of the opposite sex, but the remake added same-sex marriage options by making all marriage candidates available regardless of gender.
