Monday. Erch. Yuck. You know what this day needs? A splash of relaxing virtual farming complemented by an attractive assortment of pixel art cuteness. Stardew Valley calls itself “an open-ended country-life RPG”, and it’s instantly grabbed my full attention because it looks like a charming cross between Harvest Moon and Terraria. The game’s being made by solo developer Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone with the backing of Chucklefish Games, the team behind money-machine Starbound.
It’s now got a release date, and there’s a fresh trailer to accompany the good news. Come have a look.
