Your day-to-day actions in this game are dictated by energy. You have an energy meter in the lower-left corner of the screen. This energy can be lowered by running, completing cooking tasks, and simply going about your daily life in the game.
While it does deplete slowly, you will still need to top up your energy from time to time. One of the easiest ways to do this is by sleeping. You can head to your apartment at the end of the day to sleep to regain your energy. If you are on the go, however, you can buy a candy bar from a vending machine to top it up as well.
You Can Always Call The Bus
At the start of each new day you are expected to leave your apartment to go to work at the harrowing restaurant. If you want, you can simply walk or sprint to work, however, it’s much easier to call a bus. Calling a bus acts as a fast travel between your apartment complex and the restaurant.
Hanging Out At The Coffee Shop
Apart from your apartment and the restaurant, you can also hang out at the local coffee shop before or after your shift. This coffee shop is a cozy place filled with cups of coffee, a warm fireplace, and a small jazz band.
There isn’t necessarily a reason to hang out here but it’s a nice break from the stressors of the spooky restaurant. Plus, you can even buy a cup of coffee from a vending machine to boost your movement speed.
What Type Of Game Is This?
Happy’s Humble Burger Farm is a hard game to nail down in terms of genre. At first glance, you might think you are jumping into a game similar to the older versions of Five Nights at Freddy’s, however, this game is a completely different beast.
In essence, Happy’s Humble Burger Farm is a horror cooking sim. Your main objective is to go to work every day, make money, rinse and repeat. Along the way you will have to contend with all sorts of terrifying encounters. This game is equal parts first-person horror and frantic cooking simulation.
Daily Duties For Extra Cash
Right next to the employee timesheet station in the restaurant is a chalkboard with a short list of daily duties. These daily duties include things such as cleaning up trash or putting delivery boxes on some shelves.
While they don’t necessarily make for exciting gameplay, you are rewarded for your efforts. If you complete all of the daily duties during a shift, you receive a bonus for that day. Plus, you might even get a shot at being the next employee of the month.
You Must Ring The Bell
Happy’s Humble Burger Farm has a lot of gameplay mechanics, especially when it comes to your shift at the restaurant. Aside from cooking food, filling drinks, and putting out fires, you also need to ensure each customer receives their bagged meals.
After you put the required food items in the bag, make sure to ring the bell. If you don’t ring the bell then you can pick up the bag to sling to the customer. It’s a simple thing to miss but is incredibly important.
Don’t Forget To Turn On The Appliances
This should sound obvious but you always need to ensure the appliances button is turned on after clocking in for your shift. At the hectic start of your shift, you might forget the order in which to do things. Turning on the appliances is a critical point to remember.
You Can Hold Multiple Items At Once
One of the best things to remember as you go about your daily shift in the restaurant is that you can actually hold up to four items at a time. This control mechanic helps out in a big way when you need to cook fries, fill a shake, and assemble a burger.
However, you need to keep in mind that the items will be distributed in the order you picked them up. The bottom left corner of the screen shows how many items you are holding just in case you forget.
Utilize The Steal And Sell Shop
You might be wondering what to do with the money you earn from your shifts at the Humble Burger Farm. Aside from buying a burger meal, a cup of coffee, or a candy bar, you can also head on over to the Steal and Sell Shop.
This shop, apart from looking very creepy and dank, is a great place to spend some coins. The best things to buy here are the collectible mascot figurines. You can bring these back to your apartment to display in all of their off-putting glory.
Avoid Infractions At All Costs
Each and every shift at the Humble Burger Farm is an exercise in controlling chaos and maintaining your composure in order to successfully provide food for the paying customers. If you mess up or take too long during a shift you will incur an infraction.
