Stardew Valley creator Eric Barone (aka Involved Ape) has confirmed that he’s at the moment engaged on two new video games and has even shared just a few hints as to what they could be.
“Sure, I am truly engaged on a few new tasks,” says Barone. “One takes place on this planet of Stardew Valley however is just not a farming recreation. The opposite, I am not 100% positive concerning the world but, however it can tie into Stardew Valley not directly.”
Barone has talked about that he is engaged on new video games previously, however ht has additionally indicated that he would favor to deal with the persevering with growth of Stardew Valley fairly than discuss an excessive amount of about these tasks. As such, we’re not totally positive the place he’s on the event of both recreation and even what we should always realistically count on from both exterior of those scant particulars that he provides.
That being the case, let’s have a look at what we will glean from what data is accessible. We all know that the primary recreation Barone talked about takes place within the Stardew Valley world however is not a farm recreation. There’s truly fairly a little bit of world-building performed in Stardew Valley (even when it isn’t all the time offered on to the participant). As an example, there’s the entire thing with the evil Joja Mart.
Nevertheless, if we needed to guess, we would wager that it’d truly be a extra adventure-RPG esque title that options an expanded model of the fight featured in Stardew Valley and even perhaps faucets into the lore of the journey guild or the guardian spirits that play an element within the Stardew Valley neighborhood middle storyline. Once more, that is all speculative, however that appears like a pure enlargement of the prevailing mythology.
That second undertaking is a little bit trickier to interrupt down. As a result of Barone does not particularly say that it isn’t a farming recreation, that definitely leaves the door open to the likelihood that it could possibly be. We’re additionally a little bit confused by his wording concerning the sport’s world, however it seems like it might make passing references to Stardew Valley whereas specializing in a wholly new space and concepts.
In any case, we’re excited to see what Barone works on subsequent. Stardew Valley was one of many best video games of the final era, and it is already impressed some fascinating upcoming titles (even when it was closely primarily based on video games like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing).
