In the world of independent game development, it’s not hard to tell what games have success stories. Stardew Valley is yet another one of those success stories, being nominated for Best Independent Game at the Game Awards 2016.
This game is often compared to Harvest Moon as it was very heavily inspired by it. It offers the country-life experience that players have come to love in games such as Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon while weaving in elements of classic RPGs as well, including some beautiful pixel-art visuals.
Stardew Valley is finally getting a console port, as it is set to arrive on PlayStation 4 in less than a week’s time. Whether you’re in North America or Europe, take on the role of a protagonist who has inherited their grandfather’s farm. This character moves away from the city and decides to live on the farm, helping to bud life anew, and create lasting experiences with new friends and lovers alike.
Influence your lifestyle as you decide which of the charming bachelors or bachelorettes you’d like to betroth. All of this while building a home and managing your crops and livestock. This RPG experience has visuals reminiscent of the classic Golden Sun series for the GBA.
If you’re interested in purchasing Stardew Valley, PlayStation 4 owners will be able to buy the game on December 13th in North America and December 14th in Europe. Yet another new classic for the indie books that players on consoles will finally be able to enjoy as well.
