I need Stardew Valley now

Starbound has been a huge success, there is no doubt about it. It has passed one million copies sold and become an instant phenomenon. But this isn’t the only game published by Chucklefish, and one of their new creations looks extraordinary.

Developed by ConcernedApe, Stardew Valley is a country-life RPG in the style of old-school Harvest Moon. The graphics and interface are very similar to early Harvest Moon, and made me very nostalgic. However, it’s not just about planting crops and wooing women in this game – it has multiplayer.

Stardew Valley will have support for up to 4-player co-op online and over LAN. There are no plans for a split-screen co-op yet.

So, I can spend my time looking after the animals while a friend goes and chops down trees so that another friend can till our fields? That’s really pretty cool. The game will feature over 80 achievements, and allows players to farm, learn skills, go mining, engage with their community, go spelunking, woo women, do archaeology, go fishing and even cook food or craft items. Your choices will matter – depending on what you do, the valley can be a small-town paradise, or fall to the greedy and powerful Joja Corporation.

Just check out the adorable trailer showing off all the features – this is a game that I need in my life ASAP.

We don’t have a release date for this game yet, but it’s starting to look pretty polished and well put together. Let’s hope that we can get our green thumbs on it soon. Thus far, it’s only planned to release on PC, although Mac and Linux should also be getting releases down the line.
