THE JOURNEY TO FIND A NEW LIFE
Players start Stardew Valley with an image of an office appearing with employees sitting at their desks. Immediately, a character with an expression of fatigue with work is the main character that you will control in this game. After that, the character receives a letter that he does not know who sent it and the content of the letter is about his future choices. It advised him to find a new life to change his current boring life.
He was advised to go to a farm located on a place of the same game name on the southern coast. After reading the letter, he realized that the person who sent it was his grandfather, and his grandfather also asked him to ask about his friend Lewis. He decided to go there without hesitation, and someone was waiting to take him to the farm. When he saw it, he was amazed by the clutter with various wild plants growing around, and there was a house where he could rest every night and start a new life.
START YOUR FARMING WORK
Once you've finished interacting with the characters, you'll begin to discover what you want in Stardew Valley. You will control the protagonist in a 2D environment with pixel graphics, and you can move to any location you wish to and interact with the surrounding objects. At the same time, a feature that you cannot ignore is that the areas inside this environment are divided into many small invisible squares, and when you start doing something, they will appear.
These small squares have a role in making it easier for you to interact with a certain position in the environment, especially when you start your farming activities. An interesting point that you get at the beginning of the game is that you will not need to pick up materials to create a basic set of items because they are already available when you start the game. At the same time, you also receive a certain number of seeds from planting trees.
The first job you need to do is to use the corresponding tools to clear the grass, trees, rocks, and many other elements in your front yard. After that, you will continue to dig in the ground to collect clay and create a hole for you to plant seeds in, and don't forget to water them so they can grow but at a slow speed. From there, you will be able to do other jobs and travel to many places on the island to discover what you want.
EXPLORE AREAS ON THE ISLAND
Once you've familiarized yourself with the mechanics you can perform in Stardew Valley; you can confidently maintain your life when you arrive in a new location. You can open the map to know where you are so you don't get lost and go to the area you want.

You can explore the natural environments around your residence and cut down the trees you desire. Some trees, when cut, will produce fruit besides leaves or wood that you can put inside your bag. At the same time, if you are bored with cutting your tree, you can go continuously to the right, and at that time, you will find an area where many people live. It is where you will interact with others and buy items in places of need like supermarkets.
DO WHAT YOU WANT THROUGH THE DAYS
