Stardew Valley” has become one of the most popular video games after it launched back in March 2016. Here, you play as your own character who inherits their grandfather’s farm in a backwater town called Stardew Valley. There are plenty of things to do in the game as it tries to capture the essence of “Harvest Moon.” That said, the game’s creator has already discussed what his plans are for his next game.

Another project

According to IGN, “Stardew Valley” developer Eric Barone recently held a Reddit AMA where he answered several questions from fans.

There, he confirmed that he already has plans for his next project, yet he was hesitant to share all of the details. He claimed that “creating hype too far in advance is a lot of pressure, and ultimately I don't think it benefits anyone. I prefer to work in an isolated bubble."

In spite of this, he confirmed that this next game won’t be a “Stardew Valley” sequel, but will take place on this Earth. He will also “ take a style of game that was never fully realized (or that changed trajectories, leaving unexplored possibilities), and carry on the tradition in my own weird way.” That said, he wants to go all out with his ideas and delight his fans with “continuous handcrafted experiences.”

What is ‘Stardew Valley’

For those who are wondering about his current project, “Stardew Valley” is a Farming Simulator that offers a lot of other activities.

Aside from tilling the fields, you can also fish, mine, forage materials, and even fight monsters. The game’s main goal basically revolves around what you have planned for your virtual life. You can continue to expand your farm, or you can choose to settle down and get married instead. This farming simulator doesn’t actually have an ending, so you can play as long as you’d like.

If you eventually run out of things to do, the developer will be releasing a multiplayer update next year. You can recruit up to three of your friends as farmhands who can help you out on the farm. They can do almost everything the host player can do, except for a few in-game decisions. You can participate in festivals together, and your farmhands can even woo bachelors/bachelorettes.

Chucklefish is planning to include player-to-player marriage, so that’s something to look forward to. They will be releasing a PC beta for these features later this year, and if all goes well, we’ll see the patch by early 2018.
