AND

Stardew Valley for PC, PS4 and etc. is a sandbox RPG about a farmer’s life. It is the debut game of independent studio Concerned Ape.

The story takes place in a fantasy world full of magic. The player becomes a young farmer who becomes an owner of a modest farmland. His ambition is to transform it into a giant farm that generates great profit. The main activity of the player is planting, gathering crops and expanding the farm with new structures and crop types. At the start, the protagonist is a complete greenhorn, but as the game progress he gains experience points that can be spent on developing such skills like farming, mining, fishing and feeding animals. The protagonist is also regularly obtaining new cooking recipes and item construction blueprints.

Stardew Valley for PC, PS4 and etc. doesn’t focus solely on farming. Instead, the developers added RPG features. The protagonist participates in the social life of a nearby village inhabited by more than thirty characters. Each of them has own personality and daily, monthly and annual activity plans. Gaining their friendship unlocks access to new quests and earning occasions. It is also possible to get married and have children. Another attraction is archaeological trips during which one can dig out items left by an ancient civilization. Choices made during the campaign will affect the future of the whole valley and will determine whether it will remain a peaceful oasis or fall into hands of the greedy Joja corporation.

The game world is randomly generated every time the player creates a new character. It affects not only the surface of the map, but a giant, many-floored labyrinth of caves and underground corridors as well. Although these locations are inhabited by monsters, going there is worth taking the risk as many treasured can be found. Cooperation mode for up to four players is an additional feature of the game.
