Workers are blue, Pokey-like minions, which arerequired to build and upgrade anything in your backyard.When you first start the game, you will have one worker at your disposal. Additional workers are sold in the General Store for increasing amounts of Shiny; you may expand your workforce to a maximum of five workers this way. During the tutorial, you will be asked to buy your second worker already. Occasionally a worker will stop an upgrade and say "What was I doing?". If you start the worker on a different project you will lose the resources you invest. To get the worker working again simply refresh the game. Remember! The maximum number of workers is 5. Workers can pick the mushrooms that grow around your yard every day.
When they pick them, the following replies can be given:
"Plain Old Fungus"
"These Things Grow Like Weeds"
"Mmmm... Mushroom Soup""I Found x Shiny!" x being the amount of shiny found.
|Number of Worker||Shiny Cost|
Normally you just need 2 or 3 workers (recommended 3 workers). An amount of 4 or 5 can be just a waste of Shiny unless you're a Shiny user.
