It's been a long dry spell for farmers across the valley, but creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone's massive update 1.4 is just about ready for market. From fishponds to finance everything in between, nary a grain of corn will be overlooked when Stardew's big free update lands on November 26th.

Feature: A plethora of games to scratch that same Minecraft itch

Games like Minecraft – 16 best games like Minecraft from the past ten years

There have been a great many games like Minecraft over the past decade. Which is to be expected, because who wouldn't want to capitalise on the runaway mainstream success of the decade, and the best-selling video game of all time? There are many things that are very special about Minecraft, and remain more or less unmatched even ten years later; but we've done our very…

Forget fishponds: Stardew Valley’s next update has “everything”

Well, perhaps take that with a pinch of salt. Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone's upcoming work on the charming farming lifestyle sim won't contain the sum of all things. But that's what the Stardew Valley developer has begun calling the 1.4 update, and he's not exactly wrong. From fishponds to marriage, and dozens of vital little quality of life tweaks in between, very little is going to…

Feature: The best gift I ever bought

Have you played… Stardew Valley?

My partner doesn't play that many games. She's probably got more hours logged into Bubble Shooter than I've put into Rocket League, but besides that, nada. So the opportunities to tempt her into watching a YouTube Let's Play with me back when we first starting living together at university were quite few and far between. But one of the very few successes was when I…

Stardew Valley introducing fish ponds in next update

As Stardew Valley continues to potter through the farmyard garden of development, picking and planting new bits and pieces, creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has revealed another feature coming in the next update: fish ponds. I would very much like a pond by my farmhouse, thank you. I think they're meant to be commercial fish ponds for us to farm and process our aquatic friends, selling…

This Stardew Valley mod is all about cross-species friendship

In the depths of my heart can be found a place barely accessible to anything, cold and barren. But like a Russian Sleeper agent or Denzel Washington in The Manchurian Candidate, this heart can become triggered into action instantly by the incantation of a single phrase. My heart, a wasteland of memories about dogs and good sandwiches once had, will thump with the euphoric power…

Stardew Valley adding separate multiplayer finances option

The next free update for Stardew Valley will let players have their own separate wallet in the cooperative multiplayer mode, creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has revealed. Yes, you'll get to blow your cash on lawn flamingos without riling your one pal who takes virtuafarming oh-so seriously. Or simply run your own farms as neighbours rather than colleagues. As Barone toils away, he shared a screenshot…

Stardew Valley creator focusing on content over new game for now

The creator of Stardew Valley has temporarily set aside working on his next game in favour of making adding more free content to the much-beloved farm-o-craft-a-fight-y life sim RPG. Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has been mighty secretive about his next game, not saying what it even is let alone when we might get to play it, so it remains in the nebulous future. Before he gets…

Stardew Valley developer splits with Chucklefish to self-publish

You can't get much more indie than breaking up with a small publisher to go entirely solo, and that's exactly what Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone is doing with his enormously popular farm 'em up Stardew Valley. As of December 14th, he'll be sole developer and publisher of the game on PC, Xbox, PS4 and Vita. The break with Chucklefish seems amicable and not all-encompassing too, with…

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. "And I'm sure that's nice for Appleers," you snidely butt in, "but I'd like to remind you that on RPS, PC stands for 'personal computer' not 'pocket computer'." Alright, pal. The brass neck on you.…

Stardew Valley mod lets you play multiplayer without host (kind of)

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…

Multiplayer entered opt-in public beta testing at the end of April, and now it's finally ready to launch.

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 multiplayer launches in beta

Lovely farm 'em up Stardew Valley's multiplayer is alllmost ready, close enough to finished that today it launched an opt-in open beta. Stardew's multiplayer will let players host up to three other players in their farm, chipping in to work the land, adventure, fish, and probably drink a whole lot. Heck, you can even get married to other players. The beta branch is now live…

Stardew Valley multiplayer could ‘be ready in about a month’

The long-awaited cooperative multiplayer mode is still on course to hit Stardew Valley soon, going by what creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has tapped out on the tweetosphere. Following February's word that it was entering testing, Barone last night offered the update: "still making good progress on fixing bugs, if all goes well it should be ready in about a month" on PC. Good, good. The…

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…

Stardew Valley will let you change professions

Ah, life on the farm. Working with your hands in the slurry, watching the pigs wallow in the antibiotics, drinking a shot of warm, unpasteurised milk straight from the teat. What simple pleasures farming sim Stardew Valley affords us. Perhaps a few more, says developer ConcernedApe aka Eric Barone. 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…
