What are achievements?

Like other video games, Stardew Valley is composed of numerous achievements that players can unlock to receive rewards. To reach or unlock these achievements players have to perform specific tasks like completing the museum collection or reaching a 5-heart friend level with one of the town’s inhabitants.

The achievements are found on the player menu, under the ‘Collections’ tab. Unearned achievements will be greyed out in this section, which means that players can see which achievements they still have to unlock to receive more rewards. It is noteworthy that some achievements will not be displayed in the menu until you have completed other achievements.

Once you have earned 10 000 000 gold, you will be able to purchase the sombrero hat from the Abandoned House for approximately 1000 gold. Players should note that the Prairie King achievement can be quite difficult to complete, as they will have to defeat the Prairie King without dying. This means that every time you die in the battle against the Prairie King, you will have to start over to unlock the achievement.

Where is the Abandoned House?

The Abandoned House, also known as the Ruined House, can be found in the south of the Cindersap Forest. It is alleged that a mouse has taken over the building and opened a shop. Players can purchase a variety of hats at this shop once they have earned their first achievement. All hats cost approximately 1000 gold.

The hats in the game are purely cosmetic and do not provide characters with any additional benefits. A new hat will appear in the shop whenever you have a new achievement.

Journey of the Prairie King

The Journey of the Prairie King is a mini-game that can be played on one of the arcade machines located in The Stardrop Saloon. In addition to unlocking the achievement, players will be rewarded with a Prairie King Arcade System, which will be delivered by mail the following day. Players should bear in mind that the random elements of the game are not affected by Luck.

It is statistics that affect different aspects, such as drop rates and the chance of getting treasures from Fishing. There are 2 different kinds of Luck in the game, namely, Luck buffs and Daily Luck.

Journey of the Prairie King mechanics

The arcade game is a top-down shooter that resembles twin-stick shooters similar to those on Smash TV. The WASD keyboard buttons move the character, while the up, down, left, and right buttons shoot. You can move and shoot diagonally by combining 2 different keys.

All players will start the game with 4 lives, which is indicated in the upper left corner. You will be instantly killed if you come in contact with an enemy or projectile, and losing a life results in an unsuccessful game.
