Stardew Valley’s multiplayer is “coming along great”

While we wait for online cooperative multiplayer to officially arrive in Stardew Valley -- early 2018, last we heard -- creator Eric 'ConcernedApe' Barone has shared a little update. It's "coming along great", he says, and "already really fun". I mean, sure he would say that, but it's Stardew Valley in multiplayer so I'll believe that. The wait continues but Barone does share a nice…

Stardew Valley dev’s mysterious next game is set on the same planet

The creator of Stardew Valley [official site] has opened up a little about plans for his next game, something mysterious that's set on the same planet as Stardew but is not a sequel. Don't expect to hear juicy details from Eric 'ConcernedApe' Barone any time soon because he's avoiding building heaps of hype but he does say that, similar to Stardew Valley, it will likely…

Spellbound’s witch school invokes teen awkwardness

Stardew Valley is a common point of comparison for the witch school daily life RPG that Chucklefish are making -- and not just because Chucklefish also published Stardew -- but its relationships will certainly be more challenging. Chucklefish still haven't formally announced the game tentatively named Spellbound but they are gabbing about it again, this time about how NPCs will have a little more independence…

Chucklefish are chipping in with multiplayer and expect it'll be ready to launch properly in "early 2018". For now, they've explained a little more of how it will work.

Yonder looks a bit Zelda, a bit Stardew Valley, all lovely

Oh sure, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles [official site] might look Legend of Zelda-y and okay, it is about a hero roaming the land to save it from evil, but get this: no combat. It's Zelda filtered through Stardew Valley, a game where you save the world by helping people with your talents for farming, fishing, crafting, and such. No combat! Developers Prideful Sloth this…

Steam’s Autumn sale has begun – here’s some picks

Aside from starting a new tradition of unusually-named Steam Awards, Valve have also pulled out their worn and adored bargain bucket and have begun to fill it with games you’ll enthusiastically buy and probably never play. Yes, it's their Autumn Sale. In the streets, the apocalyptic jockeying for TVs and blenders has started. The moon has turned blood red. And I looked and behold a…

Stardew Valley 1.11 Tweaks New Farm Maps

Stardew Valley [official site] received a big ol' update last Monday, adding everything from new farm landscapes to new farm buildings and new farm divorces. A new patch followed up on Friday afternoon and while it's not massive, it is worth pointing out. If you've been considering starting a new farm on one of the new plots, see, you might be interested to hear that…

Stardew Valley Sprouts Up On Mac And Linux Next Week

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…

Steam Top Ten: Everything Must Go

A shorter than usual weekly Steam best-sellers chart this week, primarily because almost everything is explained simply by the words "Steam Summer sale", but partly because I've already spent a chunk of today compiling a big list of Sale recommendations to help our beloved readers' purchasin' decisions. You can have a pithy and/or explantory line about each game next week, promise. Meantime: these are the…

Stardew Valley Mods Add New Areas

Stardew Valley [official site] - the runaway success Harvest Moon-a-like sandbox RPG from lone developer Eric Barone - is officially expanding by way of a long-promised co-op multiplayer mode. Unofficially, fervent modders are keen to grow its bounds even sooner by way of modded farm expansions. Enter Tego's Stardew Expansion and Yama's Desert Expansion.

Stardew Valley Recruits Help For Co-op

The promised co-op multiplayer may be coming to Stardew Valley [official site] sooner than you'd expected. The farming/adventuring/country-living sandbox RPG is mostly the work of one chap but adding co-op is not a small amount of work so huzzah, he's called in help! Stardew publishers Chucklefish, who also make Starbound, are pitching in to help with Stardew Valley's co-op and Mac and Linux versions while…

Steam Charts: Death, Divisions and DLC

I wasn't around to cover the previous week's Steam Top 10 as per usual, so you'll have to wildly imagine the shape of it yourself. I can take an educated guess if you like: I'm pretty sure Soldner was a shock number one, with Limbo of the Lost and Aliens: Colonial Marines hot on its heels. Strange that they're completely gone from the latest chart,…

Stardew Valley Patch Improves Your Marriage

Death is not the end, croaked Bob Dylan on 1988's Down in the Groove. I'm not even sure that death is a possibility on the bright, friendly farms of Stardew Valley [official site] but there was an end-point of sorts. Marriage, rather than being the beginning of something wonderful, marked the end of independence, the full stop at the close of your spouse's individuality. No…

Steam Charts: Dinosaurs, Depths & Deception

Fans Of Things Not Staying Exactly The Same All The Time will be glad to hear that the latest weekly Steam top ten is quite a changed one from the previous week. A new number one, surprise re-entries and a loosening of Ubisoft's chokehold on the charts.

Steam Charts: Farming, Factories And Fallouts

Yup, I'm trying to make this a regular thing again. I know you're very excited about that. Bit late this week as I wasn't around for the first two days of it, but there is still MUCH TO LEARN from the top-ten best-sellers on Steam last week. It's a strong mix of independent and mega-gazillion blockbuster; though the overall shape of the chart isn't hugely…

Steam Charts: Clancy, Cavemen, Construction & Cullings

A run-down of the previous week's top-selling Steam titles is something I used to do regularly, but a combination of it tending to be fairly unchanging week-to-week and being a feckless human being who can't stand to do the same thing for long meant I fell out the habit. These are changed times, though: with indiepocalypses here and flash sales there, the Steam charts are…

Stardew Valley: Harvest Moon-y Country Living Now Out

If you've wanted a game like Harvest Moon or Animal Crossing on PC, hey, Stardew Valley [official site] came out on Friday evening and is very much that sort of game. That's you sorted, off you go. If those names mean little to you... Stardew Valley's a country life sim/RPG/thing about a simpler life of growing crops, raising animals, fishing, going on adventures to duff…
