11 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting The Full Version Of Ooblets

11 things I would like to know before starting the full version of Ooblets

Anyone who has spoken to me in the last week knows that I am slowly losing control over reality due to the presence of rats in my apartment. The only thing stopping me from facing the greasy creatures with a tactical vest made of protein and rat coronavirus-tipped knives is Oobletsthe saccharin farming simulator released early access on September 1st.

For me, the whole appeal of Ooblets it is its ability to liquefy your thoughts into happy, oozing non-thoughts. None of the game mechanics – no planting crops, no decorating your home, no picking squidgy Ooblets, or engaging them in dance battles – require more than two top-tier brain power micro units, which is currently my ideal level of function. cognitive.

I recommend you take a mental vacation with me. To help you get started, and without the negative side effects of the ancient skull removal procedure known as trepanation (which I am considering performing on mice), I present to you my top tips for anyone starting an enjoyable batch of Ooblets.

Explore everything

Veterans of farming simulation will recognize the hallmarks of the genre Ooblets: You leave your home in search of a better life; you meet an eccentric mayor who needs help restoring a charming but ruined city; you move into a small enclosed house with boards they bequeath you (hey, it’s free!) and do your spunky magic.

But Ooblets differs from similar games such as Animal crossing And Stardew Valley giving priority to Ooblet collection and dance battles. Successful dance battles earn you seeds that you can plant to grow new Ooblets. But here’s the catch: You can’t start a dance battle without meeting the entry requirements of having two or three specific items like fig-like anklets, which you can shake from trees, or mushroom-shaped buttons, which can be pulled out of the ground. , in your inventory. Time to hunt down those.

Chopping down trees, strolling around town and collecting or buying items, and weeding and cleaning up your yard gives you this necessary material for dance battles, as well as useful crafts and farming items. Be curious, wander, and let your pockets overflow with mysterious items – they’ll likely come in handy very soon.

Be nosy

In your curiosity, you should enter neighbors’ homes without them inviting you. Seriously, they won’t mind. Ooblets exists in an anti-gun universe, I believe.

In other people’s homes, golden sparks will guide you to useful items that you can steal without consequence, including gummy candies, the game’s main currency. Cleptomania is great!

Repopulate the planet with your children

Ooblets, lively creatures with large eyes and tiny bodies, provide more than their subtle structures suggest. Although at first only a maximum of eight “follow the kids” (this game has a sugary name for everything) can follow you, you can store additional Ooblets in your home Oobcoop. You can upgrade this area and use it to assign tasks to Ooblets like weed removal or send them to unlockable Wildlands, which acts like a nursery.

Acquiring a shit ton of Ooblets offers both aesthetic and practical benefits. They are obviously adorable. Looks are 99% of their charm, like stuffed animals. But assigning them Oobcoop tasks will enhance your farming experience while opening the Wilds will give you access to rotating challenges and rewards.

By the way, try not to think too much about choosing a personality-based club. The game asks you to do this from the start. But your club won’t have a major impact on your gaming experience. You can meet and perform duties for all club leaders, regardless of which club you are a member of. All the clubs do is determine which starting Ooblet you get and all of your options are equally cute and useful.

Sell ​​your kids for science

Having an Ooblet menagerie is also a quick and easy way to get a bunch of gummy candies. When you first head to the Lernery, a research center in your city, you will meet the character Rugnolia, who will give you gummy candies if you help her with her studies by placing new Ooblets in a scanning device. The scan takes a second and your Ooblets don’t seem to feel objectified by it which is good. You will get 50 gummy candies for the common Ooblets, 100 for the rare variants and 300 for the ultra rare “shimmers”, which you can identify by the sparkle that surrounds them.

Dance at the top of your lungs

There might be a trick to dance the battles, but honestly, Ooblets it’s a relaxed game that doesn’t seem to want to bother you too much. This is an anti-gun and pro-kleptomania community, as you may remember.

So in turn-based dance battles, where you have to reach a certain number of points before your opposing team does to win and take an Ooblet suit, all you need is to start strong. Accumulate more points as quickly as possible. It really is that simple.

To speed up this process, use “hype” cards. These increase the number of points earned from dance moves in your arsenal, while giving the other team a “shake”, which runs out of points.

And dance battles are another good reason to keep a bunch of Ooblets around. In addition to having an entry fee for items, dance battles require you to fight a certain number of Ooblets. To always be prepared for this, it is helpful to have eight children following you and ready to dance at all times.

Plant according to your needs

Ooblets it’s a farming game, but there are so many things to do inside it that I don’t think farming should be your number one priority.

However, agriculture is still needed. You will need to farm and gather materials from your plot of land for crafting items, city restoration, to produce food, and to gain access to some Ooblets dance battles. You can also choose to take orders from Plenny’s, a store that caters to the city’s bulk goods needs, in exchange for a hefty sum of gummies.

But you don’t have to worry too much. Although crops need to be watered every day (you can easily do this with your upgradeable watering can, upgrading your Oobcoop-lite to add irrigation as an assignable task, or installing sprinklers in your garden), nothing that bad will happen if they dry a little: they will take longer to sprout and may start picking up weeds to pull out.

Plant whatever you want and reap the rewards whenever you want. There is really no rush.

Go fishing

On the off chance that you’re in a hurry, you can collect the tin cans that pollute certain parts of the city and recycle them to go “commuting overboard” for items that speed up the farming process.

You will find a few heaps of cans every time you go to town. If your inventory allows, collect them all and stick them up to ten at a time in the Reconstitooter, the cute version of a recycling machine (this game is occasionally painful for me, someone who can’t say Super Happy Fun Time Burger –type the names of foods in restaurants).

For every ten cans you take apart, you’ll get a “slurry,” a basic lure to collect more pollution from the water. You can get some items by fishing with basic lures, such as Speedy Grow and Speedy Grow Pro, which both reduce crop growth times. The basic bait can also earn you Stay Soggy and Stay Soggy Extra, which reduce the need for daily watering, and even gummy candies, which you can use for gardening upgrades and seed purchase.

Know all currencies

Outside of the gummy candies, Ooblets makes it necessary to be familiar with wishes (even typing in these names makes me feel like everyone in a themed restaurant is shouting at me). These are a secondary but still valuable form of currency.

“Wishes” are obtained in bulk by completing daily tasks or challenges. They can be redeemed at the “Wishing Well” (oh my God) to access a range of items and upgrades that suit your character’s level. At level one, you can use wishes to purchase things like a set of 100 gummy candies, increase the number of detectable Ooblets in town, or increase the amount of seeds available for purchase. You can access the Wishywell from the fountain icon in the main menu or by clicking on a physical fountain in town.

Take naps

Ooblets‘the protagonists tire quickly. Even the act of running a watering can over flowering plants can make them sleepy. To remedy this, you can eat food that you forage, buy or prepare, drink “bean juice” (coffee … it’s coffee) and, more efficiently, take a nap in your comfortable bed at home.

Put aside your desire for instant reward and satisfaction (dig everything the holes, the harvest everything crops) and sink into the slowness of the game. And on that note, make sure you go to bed on time – going to bed too late makes you “giddy” and you’ll start the next day with stunted energy levels.

Don’t take it too seriously

This is not a game you have to grind. Don’t even waste your precious time thinking about grinding this game. Ooblets it’s an attractive world to be in because nothing is urgent and nothing that bad can happen to you or your Ooblet pets. Everything is pastel and borderless. Trees always bear fruit. You will never find a mouse nest in your kitchen appliances.

Don’t have mice in your apartment

This is just for me. Yup.
