Heart Events

Two Hearts

Enter Cindersnap Forest Between 8 pm and Midnight

Shane shares a beer with the player on the dock of the pond while talking about his depression. He expresses his optimism for the player’s future and warns against drinking heavily.

Three Hearts

After you’ve reached three hearts with Shane, he will send you a recipe with a note attached in the mail. He will also become slightly less rude to you during dialogues.

Recipe: Pepper Poppers

Four Hearts

Enter Marnie’s Ranch at any time

Shane is passed out in his room, surrounded by empty beer cans. Marnie asks you to do something, so you use your watering can on his head to wake him up. Marnie says that all he does is mope around and drink beer. When Marnie asks him what his plans for the future are, Shane says that he hopes he “won’t be around long enough to need a plan.” Jas overhears and runs away crying; Marnie follows her while Shane falls to the ground and cries while apologizing.

Six Hearts

Enter Cindersap Forest between 9 am and 8 pm while storming or raining. Shane is lying on the floor at the edge of a cliff, again surrounded by beer. He tells you that he is miserable and asks why he shouldn’t just roll off the cliff:

  • “Because there’s so much to live for!” (Doesn’t Affect Friendship points)
  • “Jas needs you. You’re like a father to her.” (Doesn’t Affect Friendship points)
  • “It would be a sin.”
  • “The decision is your own. Just know that I’m here for you.” (Doesn’t Affect Friendship points)

Shane’s response will vary. Regardless of your response, Shane will suggest you take him to the hospital. Dr. Harvey treats his physical wounds and expresses that he is more concerned about his mental health. Dr. Harvey says that he is going to refer Shane to a counselor in Zuzu City.

The next day Shane arrives at the farmhouse to tell you that he intends to go to counseling. He then apologies for the incident at the cliff:

  • “I’m glad I was there to help.” (+10 friendship.)
  • “You needed a serious wake-up call.” (-10 friendship.)
  • “I’m just happy you’re still here.” (+10 friendship.)

Sven hearts I

Enter Marnie’s Ranch while Shane is home.

Shane enters the ranch where Marnie is standing behind the counter. He tells her that he’s been feeling happier than usual. Jokingly Marnie asks if there was a sale on beer. Though slightly annoyed, he responds by saying he started drinking sparkling water instead. He then says that he’s realized there are people in his life he can rely on and that doing so doesn’t make him weak. He then walks over to Jas in the kitchen and gives her a present. She opens it to find a pair of expensive shoes that she wanted. When she asks Shane how he could afford it, He replies that it’s because he cut back on his expensive habit of drinking beer.

Seven Hearts II

Enter the town between 10 am and 4 pm on a sunny day. (Also requires 2 hearts with Emily and Clint.)

You will find Shane filming a scene starring Emily and Clint. Shane explains that Joja is holding a contest to create an advertisement for the newest Joja Cola, the winner is awarded 💰10,00g. He asks you to walk behind Clint and Emily as they act so the scene feels more authentic. When it’s over, he thanks you for helping out.

Seven Hearts III

After reaching 7 hearts with Shane, he will send you a recipe with a note attached in the mail.

Recipe: Strange Bun

Eight Hearts

Enter Marnie’s Ranch While Shane is home.

When you enter the ranch, Jas leads you through the coop door in the kitchen that is normally locked. Inside, Shane is painting a sign that says “Fresh Eggs.” He’s surrounded by his flock of special blue chickens and his favorite white chicken, Charlie. Once he finished painting, he picks up Charlie and briefly talks to her about his ambitions and struggles. When you and Jas enter the room, Shane talks to you a bit about how he is trying to pass on the chicken knowledge to Jas so she can continue the tradition if he ever moves out. (After seeing this event each chicken that the player purchases from Marnie and each egg that hatches in the incubator now have a 1/4 chance of being blue. Aside from appearance, the blue chickens are identical to white chickens.)

Ten Hearts

Exit your house before 6:30 am, then walk to the Bus Stop between 4 pm and 6 pm.

Shane invites you to go see the Zuzu City Tunnellers (a gridball team) play in their stadium in Zuzu City. You take a bus into the city together and the scene changes to a grimy stadium with you and Shane in the stands. While cheering on the Tunnellers, Shane thanks you for sticking with him through his struggle with depression and anxiety. He then asks you what you think of your first gridball game:

  • “Noisy… It makes me appreciate how peaceful it is back home.” (Doesn’t Affect Friendship points)
  • “Fun… Pelican Town seems really boring in comparison.” (Doesn’t Affect Friendship points)

Shane’s response will vary. Regardless of your response, Shane will kiss you but then back away in embarrassment. He apologies for getting carried away. After a pause, you reply with a kiss and allay his fears. The scene fades to black

Marriage

To get married you will need to first A. Have the kitchen upgrade to your home and B. Have a 10 heart relationship with Shane. You can find information on how to do that in the Heart Events section of this Guide. Once Shane appears on your social tab as (Boyfriend) and has a 10 heart relationship with you, You will be able to buy a “Mermaid Pendant” from the Old Mariner for 5,000g. He can be found on the beach across the bridge that costs 300 wood to repair.

Giving this to Shane will act as a proposal now labeling him (fiance) in your social tab. He will tell you that the wedding will happen in three days and all the other characters you were dating will return to normal friends. Once you are married Shane will move into the farmhouse with you and that’s when things start to change.

You will unlock a new room to the right of the bedroom, This room acts as Shane’s “Space.” Shane also makes use of the section north of the farmhouse by making a little garden there. Penny will sometimes help on the farm by feeding the animals, Filling the pet water bowl, Watering the plants, and Repairing the broken fencing. Shane will occasionally offer food items including Beer, Large Egg, and Pepper Poppers.
