Stardew Valley operates on a 24 hour day cycle; however, four of those hours are always spent sleeping. That gives you 20 hours to complete whatever task you set out to complete in a single cycle, from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. until 2 a.m. That means you must quickly return home to rest. Wouldn’t it be better if you could sleep outside in Stardew Valley? Is that possible in-game?
Can I sleep outside in Stardew Valley? Answered
Unfortunately, you can’t sleep outside in Stardew Valley, at least not willingly.
When the clock strikes 12 AM, two hours before the end of a day cycle, your character will tire. At this point he drops everything you’re doing and finds a bed. Once 2 AM rolls around and you’re not in bed, you’ll pass out from exhaustion whether you want to or not, regardless of where you are.
While you can get away with passing out outside in Stardew Valley, it’s not recommended. Sleeping in a bed restores your energy and health to full, while passing out only restores both to half, as well as losing a portion of your gold if you passed out outside of the Farm or Shack. It is a huge penalty that is not worth dealing with.
It sucks that you can’t sleep outside in Stardew Valley, but to be fair it would trivialize some of the game’s mechanics; Great importance is attached to time management. In case you lose items in Stardew Valley, it is important to know where the lost and found are located. Or, if you’re looking for love, Sebastian is available.
