Quick Tips
-Sleep in your bed inside your house to jump to 5 AM the next day
-A sapling must be watered with a watering can before it will grow. It'll die if it isn't watered soon enough.
-Trees / fruit grow at 12am and 12pm each day
-Make sure you don't cut down too many trees, or you could remove your fruit source!
-Each tool will break after a certain amount of uses
-There's no real point to paying off your mortgage, it's really just there as an overall goal.
-The store restocks with new items everyday. However, if you already own one of the items, it'll be replaced by an 'Out of Stock' sign
-Every Friday the Mart has a 50% off sale
-Fishes can be sold for double the money to the fisherman who appears every Sunday
-You can access your shirts from the wardrobe at your house

I liked the game quite well until,... I tried to pay off the mortgage and after clicking rapidly, I clicked once (increments of 1,000) past 100,000 and now I still owe 99,000. Lame. I was also able to pay for items in the store more than once, in fact as much as clicked buy, despite only getting the item once. There should be a stop, like the tools have, once you buy singular item (or the mortgage). By the way, is it possible to find the things that the Shana keeps losing?

This is almost exactly like Animal Crossing. The only thing I didn't like was that it was kind of laggy (maybe that's just me) and the interface could be improved a bit.

Yep, Animal Crossing is one of my favorite Nintendo games. Thanks for the suggestions- I think the over world still lags a bit for some people so I'll be looking into patching that up soon.

It froze like 2 min after I started playing. Nice graphics and smooth, peaceful, music...takes your mind to another place.


08jackt responds:

Strange- I'll look into that. Thanks!

Liked it, but it was very dull after a while. I tried fishing half a dozen times and still have no idea how to catch a fish, I turn the reel fast, I turn it slower, I try everything in between. One time I fished for a good 6 in game hours, caught nothing. Very frustrating.

Also a suggestion, make it so options can be moved along without the mouse, annoying to have to keep swapping from keyboard to mouse to pick 'thanks'.


08jackt responds:

Thanks!

Each time a fish swims past your fishing rod, there's a 50% chance that it'll bite. If it does, you have to rotate the fishing reel as fast as you can clockwise. If you rotate it fast enough, you'll catch the fish. Otherwise, it could get away.

Nice suggestion for adding in keyboard controls for dialogue. I'll add that in soon!
