Stardew Valley [by ConcernedApe]
« on: February 27, 2016, 12:36:57 PM »
Hey, guys!

I wasn't sure about posting this in the game design boards, because really, I just want to share this game with people.

I've been following this one for a few years now, and it finally came out this week!

Have you heard of Stardew Valley?
http://stardewvalley.net

If you like old school RPGs, Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, or Animal Crossing, you should check this one out. ^^

I've been following it for ages too, I'm so excited that it's finally out! I'd be playing it right now if I wasn't doing a gamejam this weekend

Bardjam, a casual game jam that he started with some people who watch his Twitch stream :P

The game does look good and I'm planning on playing it one day. Unfortunately I really don't like the character portraits, and that's a big turn off for me.

Like Marlin said, it's "bardjam". Anyone's welcome to join, even if you're not one of my viewers. :)

Hmm... Can't find anything on Google. But anyway, I don't want to go off-topic.

I've never played a Harvest Moon type game, but this one seems like a good game to try the genre, I might give it a try. ^^

It reminds me of Harvest moon and Rune factory.
Love the Casual 2D graphics :)

It's basically like a Harvest Moon (Farming/Life Simulator, actually) for PC, but I love that. <3

mmmhhmmm gamejam at where? That sounds fun, I wish I was able to join too >w>
Videogame developers are not gods that anyone should worship. I hereby decide that is my top existential reason to prove that horrible, horrible misconception, because that is becoming annoyingly rampant in every corner of the internet.  They can deserve critism, or thrashing even. It doesn't even need to be constructive critism. And even if you are a free game developer doesn't mean community is your personal ego farm.

Gamejam at the internet ;) It was a pretty small one I was putting on. Only a few people participated. It was fun though.



@Everyone, I got the game and oh my gosh is it good :D It has the same feeling as friends of mineral town (where everyone feels distinct and the town feels large enough to be a real functional town), but without any of the problems I had with mineral town. The game does a better job at explaining to you how everything works and giving you more direction than "do farm stuff" that all the previous games did. This is the first time I've played a harvest moon type game without feeling like I need to read a strategy guide first so I know what sorts of things I can do and what goals to aim for.

Get stardew valley. It's the best 2D Harvest Moon to date :D

Great game. I haven't played much yet, but this definitely has the potential to be the best Harvest Moon game (except that it's not a Harvest Moon) with minor RPG elements. Truely beautiful!
