Stardew Valley coming to iOS this month, able to import PC saves

The mobile version of friendly farm 'em up Stardew Valley will debut on iOS at the end of the month, creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has announced, with Android to follow.

Stardew Valley’s mutliplayer launched a couple of weeks ago, letting farm owners roll around in the dirt with up to three pals. But the landowning “host” player must be present if friends are to plant tomatoes, and that head player also has the final say over decisions such as when you all go to bed. Landlords, eh? But what’s this? It’s a handy mod that…

Feature: Though it's very much a beta

Stardew Valley’s multiplayer might be the perfect hang out game

When I first began playing Stardew Valley, it was predominantly a solitary affair. Not only because it was squarely a single player game, but because avoiding other people suited my playstyle just fine. I headed to Pelican Town to relax, farm, and mine, not to make friends. All I needed was the quiet of my crops growing and a good canine companion. And yet, when…

Stardew Valley’s multiplayer beta expected for spring

My farm in Stardew Valley is a place of solace. It's a shrine to quiet contemplation, a valuable retreat from the demands of sociability, a hidey-hole built just for me and my thoughts. Why would I want to invite someone in and spoil all that? Actually, none of that's true. I'd love to romp around Stardew Valley with a friend in tow, and I'll soon…

He recently tweeted some upcoming changes, including new town events and the ability to change professions…

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…

A year in Stardew Valley: life, labour and love

Paul Dean spends a year in Stardew Valley [official site], ahead of the game's one year anniversary later this month, and reflects on the work that goes into building a life, virtual or otherwise.

What’s It Like To Start Anew In Stardew Valley?

I have spent over seventy hours in Stardew Valley. In that time I’ve cultivated my land, raised animals, got married and had a child of my own. I’ve plundered the deepest depths of the mine and ridden the bus to the desert. There’s no crop I haven’t grown, no animal product I haven’t churned or spun. Of course in a game like Stardew Valley there’s…
