Energy is a critical part of the game - depending on how well players understand it, the player can make better use of their time. In game, it is represented as a vertical yellow bar found at the bottom right side of the game screen.
Energy is used to perform daily tasks, this can range from getting wood from a tree to gathering wild plants. The player starts the game with 50 energy.
Below is a list of tasks that require a certain amount of energy to perform.

While energy can be depleted quickly if the player is not paying attention to their energy bar, there are ways to recover energy:
- Saving the game by sleeping completely restores energy for the next day.
- Taking a nap on the Hammock partially restores some energy.
- Eating cooked food can restore a noticeable amount of energy. The amount restored varies depending on a food eaten.
The amount of energy the player has at the start of each day can be increased. This is possible through purchasing various upgrades from Frank's upgrade table.
- It is thought that swimming may also use energy, but this is untrue. In order to swim, the player uses stamina instead.
