Stardew Valley review
September 5, 2020
Stardew Valley is a farming simulation game that was released in February 2016. It is the spiritual successor to Harvest Moon, which was released in 1997. Stardew Valley is an indie farming simulation game developed by Eric Barone. In the game, the player is tasked with restoring their grandfather's dilapidated farm in a valley near Pelican Town. The player is also responsible for creating a sustainable farm, growing vegetables, raising livestock, mining for ores, and crafting useful machines. In the game, players can interact with the townsfolk in Pelican Town, which include live-in villagers and visiting traders. Players can give gifts to the villagers, get to know them better and go on quests, or marry them.
The player is able to make their farm as they please, and to plant and harvest any type of crop during any season. The player can also forage for items and fish in the nearby river. These items can be used to craft items to sell in the nearby town, or to upgrade the player's farm. In Stardew Valley, the player takes on the role of a character who, just before leaving for a new job, receives a letter from their grandfather who lives on the outskirts of a town named Pelican Town. The grandfather informs the player that the farm is in a sad state and that the player is the only one who can restore it. The player chooses from a list of eight different farm maps before starting the game.
In Stardew Valley, the player's primary objective is to restore the farm to its former glory, and this is done by completing various farm related tasks. These include planting and harvesting crops, raising animals to produce eggs and milk, mining for ores, and crafting useful machines, among other things.
The graphics of Stardew Valley are colorful and cheerful, and the layout is reminiscent of Harvest Moon. The background music is also appropriate to the game and never gets annoying. Stardew Valley is a pixel-based, 2D game which features an old-school style.
