New Content to Come for Stardew Valley
Via Polygon- “The creator of Stardew Valley, who recently split with the game’s original publisher and took back those rights just yesterday, told players in an update yesterday that he is prioritizing ongoing development of his farming simulator, and putting another project on hold while he does so.
Eric Barone (also known as ConcernedApe) was speaking to community concerns over the fact he had been working on a new game prior to taking over Stardew Valley’s publishing, and had said that he wanted to devote all of his time to that project without creating new Stardew Valley content. Barone said that was no longer the case; while he had felt burnt out at times, ‘I keep getting new ideas for ways to improve and expand upon the game.’
‘There’s also such a wonderful community surrounding the game,’ Barone added, ‘and I like making you guys happy.’
Stardew Valley is arguably one of the best games I’ve ever played. It’s a wonderful time investment and is my go-to downtime game. To find out there will be more content coming to the new age Harvest Moon is an early Christmas present. Burn out is definitely a problem for content creators and game devs alike, and it’s refreshing (and exciting, because so far his work has been spectacular) that while Barone has been working on a new project, he hasn’t forgotten about Stardew Valley. He’s looking to develop a team to help with the upcoming workload since he has been flying solo up to this point. The next update for the game will most likely be the release of the multiplayer game mode on the Xbox One and PS4 as it has already been made available on PC and the Nintendo Switch.
