Gus in Stardew Valley

Gus has been living alone on his farm since he first came to it ten years ago and while still providing for himself, Gus was looking forward to having company.

His dream became reality when Shane (a friend from college) shows up unannounced one day with plans of moving back into town.

The two friends are able to tackle all of their projects together and they even start building an underground bunker as protection against potential dangers that may arise should there be nuclear war or if climate change causes natural disasters such as global flooding.

However, Gus eventually realizes that this life isn’t what he wants after all-so much time spent with only Shane has given him too much time to think and Gus realizes that he misses the community of his old town.

Gus decides it’s finally time to move back in with all of his friends and family, so he sells off most of what they’ve built at a garage sale (though some things are left behind for when Shane might want them).

Shane is disappointed but not surprised he had been sensing Gus’ desire to return home for weeks now.

He also knew this was inevitable because their friendship couldn’t be as strong if one or both of them were constantly living apart from each other or being together on Skype calls every day instead of actually seeing each other face-to-face.

You can usually find Gus at the Stardrop Saloon where he spends most of his time when the pub is open.

If he isn’t there, then it’s likely that you’ll find him at Harvey’s Clinic as this is where he goes for his routine checkup.

Otherwise, Gus can be found at the Pierre General Store – otherwise known as the Community Center in Stardew Valley.

How to marry him 

  • talk to him
  • ask for his shirt (or tuxedo)
  • wear a ring, offer him one of yours
  • give them something from their wishlist and ask them if they’ll marry you
  • say “I love you” in front of everyone

If the player has also met all requirements to marry any other eligible bachelor/bachelorette. If he or she agrees, say yes!

And then it’s time for some wedding cuteness. Congrats! You’re now married!” What’s next?” should show up on the screen.

The player can continue trying to date others after marriage but will be unsuccessful as may not have enough hearts with that individual. A sign in town indicates who is currently married, and who is still available to date.

When is Gus’s Birthday in Stardew Valley?

Gus is one of the most mysterious and elusive characters in Stardew Valley. He spends his days wandering around town, exploring, fishing for fish, or hunting down slimes to exterminate from Pelican Town’s gardens.

When he does show up at Pierre’s General Store for something as simple as a coffee refill, Gus often has interesting things to say about what he finds out there in the wilderness.

This entry will explore when Gus was born based on conversations with other NPCs like Leah, who says that Gus is “always hanging out outside” (meaning outdoors), which leads us to believe that Gus might be an outdoor type person! This means that we can use the weather patterns during different months to figure out what month Gus was born in!

Gus celebrates his birthday on the eighth of every summer. It’s best to give him something he likes on his birthday in order to make your friendship stronger 8.
