Stardew Valley review
September 5, 2020
Stardew Valley is an indie farming simulation video game developed and published by ConcernedApe. The player takes the role of a character who was recently divorced and inherits a large farm in Stardew Valley. The player must manage their character's time by scheduling them to plant and harvest crops, while also caring for livestock, mining, fishing, and engaging in other activities.
The game is a farming simulation, and the player's goal is to grow crops and care for livestock to earn in-game money and other rewards. The player can take soil samples from the farm to a community building to have them analyzed, and this analysis will help determine which crops grow best at the farm. The player can also plant and care for crops, as well as plant trees and fruit bushes. The player can talk to and give gifts to non-player characters, spend earned in-game money on remodeling their farm, buy and sell crops at in-game markets, fish, and mine for ores to make in-game money.
The player can also harvest crops and press them into oil, and then use the oil to make fuel such as coal or gas. The player can purchase a coop to hold chickens and ducks, and use the eggs or feathers to make in-game money. The player can also purchase and care for cows, goats, and pigs, and sell their milk, goat cheese, or pork items as well.
The game is rendered in a pixel art style with a 16-bit color palette. The environment and characters are presented in a style reminiscent of the 1990s console RPG games, with simple, three-color designs.
The game is open-ended, with no set goals. The player may choose to take on the role of a socialite, artisan, adventurer, or farmer. The player is free to explore the game's world, farm, fish, forage, explore dungeons, fight monsters, and develop relationships with the townsfolk. The player is able to make their character different from their last playthrough and the player can even start a new game with a different profession. The replay value is high with over ten hours of gameplay and with many different endings and ways to play. Players can play the game in real time with other people online, either with one another or with random players from around the world.
