What’s a fantasy life sim without a little romance? Fae Farm is the latest magical farming and life sim by Phoenix Labs that’s out now on the Nintendo Switch and PC. In this magical world of Azoria you’ll be able to create your own cosy homestead, complete with a home, farming land and wonderful animals. Life isn’t all just farming and animal petting though, you’ll be able to make friends and go into town. And some of those friendships can even turn into love.

There are right now six potential love interests for you to romance in Fae Farm. You’ll be able to progress your friendship to the flirting stage, go out with them on dates and even propose marriage. You won’t even need to limit yourself exclusively to one character because you’ll be able to date any or all of these potential bachelors and bachelorettes at one time! Regardless of gender or species. Here’s everything you need to know about romance in Fae Farm.


How To Romance Someone In Fae Farm

Just like life romance and friendship are improved by speaking to people every day and giving them gifts. But unlike other life sims characters will only want specific items. So if you have someone that you like in particular try to stock up on their favoured gifts. To give someone something simply interact with them and select the ‘Give Gift…’ option. You can only give them one a day and it’ll change every day.

Continue to improve your friendship with your romantic interest and you’ll hit the Flirting stage with them. Once you’ve reached this level you’ll be able to “Go on a Date” and complete “Romance Quests”. Participating in both will earn you additional relationship points.

  • Romance Quests – Similar to other NPC sidequests (mostly fetch quests).
  • Go On A Date – You’ll receive a letter in your mailbox asking you on a date. Talk to them to Go On A Date and get a cutscene with your character.

Note: You’ll be able to check your relationship level with someone on the Relationships Tab in the menu.


How To Get Married

All relationship levels with the villagers in Fae Farm begin as Strangers, but as you speak to and interact with these romanceable characters these levels can change. And in the final stage of romance, you can eventually ask one of them to marry you.

The relationship levels are as follows:

  1. Strangers
  2. Flirting
  3. Interested
  4. Dating
  5. Getting Serious
  6. Spouse / Fiance

Once you’ve reached the level of Fiance you’ll get the option to ask your romantic interest to marry you. To get married you’ll have to pay a sum of 10,000 gold florins for the wedding ceremony. And after a cutscene not much will change. There are no further dates to go on with your spouse, and you won’t learn anything new about them. They will occasionally hang around on your farm, but that’s about it.

Note that you can date all the romanceable candidates in Fae Farm at once without anyone getting jealous. You can only marry one at a time. Meaning that if you want to change your spouse you’ll need to rest your relationship with that person and then arrange a marriage with another candidate.

Argyle is a good-natured, sweet, nerd of a human. He spends a lot of his time at the Docks and loves receiving gifts having to do with frogs and bugs. Further adding to his sweet nature, he is regularly seen enjoying picnics. When on a date with Argyle, he might spend the time explaining frogs, as he loves to talk about his passion for them. This guy might not be the most remarkable of characters, but his charm and kind heart make him one of the best to romance as it is hard not to find him simply adorable.

Jack is a lumberjack who spends a lot of his time in the Spooky Woods, although the amount of time he is seen sharpening his axe at the Tavern can feel a bit disconcerting. Jack is a kindhearted human who is an outdoorsman. Because of his being around right at the start of the game, he is one of the easiest to romance and is a sweet guy.

I used to stargaze often, growing up on Azoria. Perhaps we can try it again sometimes, together.

Nhamashal is a fae creature who has refined tastes. He likes to stargaze and write poetry, a true romantic at heart. His different-coloured eyes are a nice touch to his features along with the unique fairy wings. He has a quiet and demure personality which can be mistaken as being aloof or even prideful, but with time and patience, he will begin to open up more. Nhamashal likes stones and minerals.
