Squishy: Stardew Valley: Living off the (messy) land

On Spring 3rd, I got an advertisement in the post from the general store.


It was my first rainy day on Cosmic farm, so I didn't have to water my crops.


I decided to use my energy on cleaning my farm a bit.


I've been spending the last few days cleaning and Foraging to make some pocket change.


I stopped playing for a bit then starting up the game again. The loading screen shows the controls, some of which I didn't even know about.


On the 5th my parsnips finished growing!


Joja sent me a letter about their current business. I never thought I'd hear from them again after quitting my job.


Those parsnips got me to Level 1 in Farming. Awesome!


They also made a fecent amount of Gold. I'm getting the hang of this!


Thank you for reading and stay safe tomorrow during the hurricane

Squishy: Embarking!

Tonight in town, Lucha went into tutorial mode. I've been playing this game for over four years!


 Stitches wanted to play hide and seek, along with Iggly and Camofrog. I found Camofrog behind Rosie's house.


Daisy pinged me and said that she was embarking on a new adventure.


She wanted to move out on the 18th. That's on Wednesday! I really like Daisy so I told her to stay.

Iggly was (attempting) to hide behind the lighthouse. Really Iggly?


Lastly was Stitches himself, who was hiding behind Jeremiah's house.


He gave me a wobblena as a reward. Random but okay.

After watching Chuggaaconroy's Welcome Amiibo update for the last few days, I was curious about who was in my campground. Today it was Nat


Thank you for reading and have a good weekend!

Squishy: Are you Bee-ing serious?

I haven't been touching New Leaf as much since I've been distracted by other things (looks at 15+ hour Stardew Valley play time). I forgot that I was wearing this musician's outfit when I played yesterday.


I changed back into my normal outfit. I promise that I'm wearing trousers!


Lucha was asking if he looked off coloured. Off coloured? No. Sunburnt? Yep!


He asked me for some fruit so I randomly shook the nearest tree. I don't know why I did that since it had bees instead of fruit. Lucha just watched me suffer!


But when I turned around to talk to him again, he acted like he didn't see me get stung. Are you bee-ing serious?


Despite that, I got him an orange.


He gave me a sno cone tee as a reward. I was struggling to think of a Halloween costume idea, so now I can just walk around with blood on my neck.


While talking to Rosie, I thought she was trying to scare me when she said "BOO!". Turned out she was complaining about the lack of events.


Daisy started talking about gardening. I'm currently growing a tomato from the ground up (baa dum tss) so this hit home for me.


Thank you for reading and if you haven't already, feel free to check out my Stardew Valley series. It will be posted every Sunday!

Squishy: Stardew Valley: Meeting and exploring

I used Day 2 to explore the rest of Pelican Town. It looks so cute!


The first town's person I met was Evelyn. She is so adorable. Nothing better happen to her!



Protect the smol bean

I also looked through my inventory. I can craft things right from my pockets. Farming Logic!


I used some of my wood to make a few fences. My farm is starting to look organised already!


I checked my post box. A dude called Willy (giggles) just came back from a fishing trip and told me to visit the beach.


On the town board was a calendar with everyone's birthdays and event dates. Its weird not having it in my house like in other farming simulators


I continued to meet the other town's people. Some were friendly while others were either scared or just mean.






My inventory also had a map of Stardew Valley!


I followed Willy's advice and took a look at the beach. There was a broken beach to the east that required 300 wood to fix. I know what my next goal is.


Throughout the day I've been picking up things from the ground and beach which brought my Foraging to Level 1


I sold those findings and made my first bit of money. Every little helps at this point.


Thank you for reading and I'll see you for more next week!

Squishy: Stardew Valley: Welcome to Cosmic Farm!

Since I saw a Youtuber I like do a series of this game, I was interested. However the two things that put me off was that it was only available on things I didn't have/use and that I was afraid that the text size would be too small for me (my vision sucks)

Yesterday I decided to buy it and give it a try (plus the games in my birthday deal sucked so this was a better idea). So far I'm enjoying it so I decided to make it a full series on my blog. It will normally be posted on Sundays but I got too excited to wait. So lets get started!


So I started by creating my character. I forgot to take a photo of the rest of my info. My name is Squishy, my farm is Cosmic and my favourite thing is chocolate. I also picked the regular farm.


(Sorry for the quality of these images by the way)

The game starts with my dying grandpa giving me an envelope, which I wasn't allowed to open until my modern life started to suck.


XX years later shows the behind the scenes of Cosmic Acorns the sucky modern life. I open my grandpa's letter and its the deed to Cosmic farm, found in Stardew Valley. Sweet!


When I arrive I meet Robin... and my town in ruins!


I then meet mayor Lewis. He doesn't really look wise but at least his hat looks cool.


Lewis and Robin start arguing about my house and the day ends there.




One thing I noticed is that the saving screen looks really boring. Its just white text over a black background.

I wake up and figure out the controls quickly.


I'm given a TV right of the bat so that I can check the weather.


Lewis left me 15 parsnip seeds so I cleared some land and got to work right away. I love the spite work and the animations. They are a nice touch.


As I continued clearing the land I came across a problem, my axe isn't strong enough. I guess that means tools can be upgraded.


I played a lot more and discovered a few thngs but I save it all for future entries. I will probably post a review of this game after I play it a bit more. Thank you for reading and I'll see you on Sunday for some more Stardew Valley!
