First Day Guide for Harvest Moon SNES
First Day Guide for Harvest Moon SNES

When you start Harvest Moon SNES, the first day begins with you being taken to the town by the Shipping Man to meet the townsfolks. He will not let you leave until you speak with six specific people:

  1. The Seed Shop Owner
  2. The Animal Dealer
  3. Nina
  4. Maria
  5. Eve
  6. Ann

However, he does not make this clear so it is very common for players to get stuck because they don’t know where everyone is and who they have or have not yet spoken to as their dialogue typically doesn’t change even after you talk to them.
