I’ve been sort of busy the past couple days, and I haven’t had the chance to play Doubutsu no Mori. This was bothering me, because I really wanted to finish the jobs I had started for Tanukichi so that I could freely wander around my village and earn money as I saw fit. I just had a few more odd jobs to do, so I booted the game up tonight and got to work!
I left off on needing to ask a villager if they needed help, so I started running around to find someone. I immediately ran into a cute, pink alligator that I had not met before. Someone new had already moved in, which I thought was really neat! I’m not sure how many total villagers can be in your town at once, but I’m anxious to find out!
After a brief welcome chat with Sutoroberi, I finished up my odd jobs for Tanukichi. These jobs included running and errand for Tama (Purrl) and delivering an axe to Hyakupa (Tangy).
My final job was to post an advertisement for Nook’s Cranny on the town bulletin board. Hope they can read a little English! =) After I was through with that, I headed over to Tanukichi, who excitedly told me I was through with my part time work. He then quickly told me how much I still owed on my house, but that I could take my time paying it off. Wow, aren’t you sweet?!
He then practically kicked me out of his store because it was after hours, and I did my little happy dance, because I was free!
Now that I was done working my part time job, the game started “for real.” When you are working, Tanukichi keeps his store open open, and all the villagers are awake and stay in the acre their house is in, no matter what time of day you play. Once you are done with your job, however, life in your village revolves around real time… which is why the shop was closed and I wasn’t able to purchase any tools!
Since there wasn’t much else I could do for the night, I walked around and picked a couple weeds and woke up a few of my sleeping villagers so they could go back in their houses. I then took a nighttime stroll along the beach and filled my pockets with shells to sell to Tanukichi tomorrow.
Afterwards, I went to my house and saved my game for the night. Can’t wait to play more tomorrow and start paying off my debt! Good night!
