Stardew Valley [official site] is pure relaxation. Sure, building a farm from rocks and rubble is tough work, but there is nothing more soothing than the day to day routine; tending to crops, caring for your animals, trying to seduce your neighbors, and combing the mines for treasure. Now, Stardew Valley is bringing its therapeutic charms to Mac and Linux on July 29th, according to creator ConcernedApe.
With that said, it looks like we’ll have to wait a little while longer for the upcoming version 1.1 update that brings multiplayer, non-English localization, and a considerable chunk of new content. Many people have been at a loss when it comes to the end game–things sort of just peter off. With 1.1, ConcernedApe is adding more late-game content, and most importantly, new secrets.
Version 1.1 also seeks to introduce new crops, artisan goods, farming mechanics, and buildings. If your farm is a disorganized mess like mine, you’ll be happy to know that we’ll soon be able to move farm buildings around. The update is going to be a hefty one that will change Stardew Valley a great deal, but for the better (and Stardew Valley is already amazing as it is). You can visit the official site for a full list of planned 1.1 content.
