Hokko Life is a life management simulator and as such you have to bring in money every few days to spend all the furniture that the local store has in stock. However, there is nothing obvious you can do to make a lot of money. In fact, it is quite difficult to build any kind of savings for the one item you desire. This guide contains some tips on how to best make money in Hokko Life so you can buy whatever you want.
Most methods of making money involve selling goods to a store. In the current state of the game, the store has a seemingly infinite amount of money, so you can repeat the methods below as much as you want without worrying that the store owner will not work.
Watch the story
The story in Hokko Life is simple, but it is also important. While playing, you will discover new mechanics and meet all the villagers you could want. Of course, you will need to help the village in the process by performing several important tasks. These tasks are lucrative and after completing each of them you will get a little cash. If you’re new to the game, watch the story before you complain about the lack of funds, because you get a lot of these relatively simple goals.
Craft benches or sofas
Making benches may not seem like a useful use of your time, but it is if you are building them for profit. If you have a plan, all you need is a single board that you can create on the Workbench from three protocols. Once you make this board, you can make a bench. You’ll do it as part of the story at the beginning of the game, but you wouldn’t think to do it again.
If you build more benches, you can take them to the store and sell them for 200 coins. The real resources needed are time, because you can get logs by chopping wood or trees. Then you just produce and head to the store, where you sell what you made.
Sofas make you the same amount of money and cost you ten pieces of wood. When you see them on the ground, constantly collect logs and you should build up a decent supply to help you create them later.
Get into lepidopterology
Lepidopterology is the scientific study of moths and butterflies. In the world of Hokko Life you will find a lot of butterflies and they can be extremely valuable. Save some money and buy an in-store error correction tool. Once you have it, you can collect as many butterflies as you want from the village. You can then sell these butterflies in the store to make a net profit. Some are more valuable than others, but you should sell them all if you don’t want to keep them to yourself.
Steal some furniture
Hokko Life is in premature access, so there are several bugs that can cause unintentional malfunctions. One of them is furniture that can be picked up and moved from anywhere in the village. You may not have realized that you can put all this furniture in your backpack and then sell it in the store. It may not be a morally great method, but it’s a quick and easy way to make some money.
It also seems to work with turn signals and lamps and reappear so you can sell again. However, this bug is likely to be fixed sooner than anything else, so don’t be surprised if you can’t do it anymore.
