Welcome to the Stardew Valley Wiki and Guides! Here you will find all the information about the game.
Stardew Valley is a farming simulation role-playing video game developed and published by Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone.
Players take on the role of a character who inherits their grandfather’s dilapidated farm in Stardew Valley. Now it is up to you to save the farm by repairing, fixing, and improving it. Players’ work will consist of collecting resources, raising animals, and planting crops in order to have the best life possible.
Eric Barone (also known by his alias ConcernedApe) started working on Stardew Valley back in 2012. It started out as an exercise for him to improve his game design and programming skills. However soon it turned into a passion project.
In mid-development, Chucklefish Games offered to publish Barone’s work so he could focus more on the project’s completion.
In February 2016, it was released on Microsoft Windows, and later on macOS, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation Vita, iOS, and Android.
In 2020, Stardew Valley sold more than ten million copies, earning both critical and commercial acclaim.

Stardew Valley is a farming simulation game inspired by the Harvest Moon series.
At the start of the game, players create a character who receives a plot of land and a small house once owned by their grandfather in a small town called Pelican Town. Players can choose from several different farm types, each with its own theme and benefits, and disadvantages.
To start a farm, players must remove boulders, trees, stumps, and weeds, and tend to crops and livestock to generate revenue and further develop the farm’s facilities.
In addition, players can interact with the non-player characters (NPCs) that inhabit the town and even engage in relationships (this can result in the NPC helping the player to tend the farm). Furthermore, players can fish, cook, craft, and explore procedurally generated caves filled with materials, ores, and creatures to combat.
For extra money or for restoring the town’s Community Center, players can complete quests referred to as “bundles”.Bundling rewards players with various items, including seeds and tools.
By completing multiple bundles, players gain access to new areas and game mechanics, such as a desert.
The game’s internal clock and the character’s health and exhaustion levels must both be considered when deciding how to allocate time to each of these activities. In some activities and situations, a player can consume food that grants specific buffs.
Furthermore, food replenishes health and energy, allowing the player to accomplish more tasks in a day.
The game uses a simplified calendar with 4 seasons to determine which crops can be planted and which activities to perform. Later on in the game, players can restore a greenhouse and an island that can grow any crop regardless of the season.
