    Hello all,

    Curious as to whether or not there are any Stardew Valley fans around these parts! I played it on PC, but recently got it for my Xbox One, and got back into it. I have a relatively stressful career, and this game melts the stress of a shift away. Incredible game, for anyone on the fence- no pun intended.

    I'm already at the winter of my first year- trying to build up a vineyard/brewery! I'll screenshot my far when I get a chance :) I'd like to see others, as well!

    It looks and feels very relaxing, unfortunately I'm not digging the art style.

    Really? It grew on me. I usually derive little enjoyment from art/graphics styles similar to SV... but the more I played it, the more the style felt.... appropriate.

    Give it another try?

    As soon as it's available on The Switch I'll pick it up. It looks really fun.

    You won't regret it! Just a tip, though- don't be ashamed to use the SV wiki for things. Some aspects of the game expect you to figure things out without any hints, tips, or clues. Just as one example- in order to get married- and you'll want to- you need a pendant, equivalent to a wedding ring. You can get the pendant from a random character, who appears in an obscure location, during certain seasons, only during certain times- and only during certain weather. No hints are given, other than, literally, "You need the pendant to get married."

    Even using the (very well-written, btw) SV Wiki, I still felt the thrill of discovery and exploration.

    Well I know who to come to when I finally do get it.

    To be honest, I was going to pick it up on Steam but the idea of being able to have it on a portable was too good to pass up.

    I'd be happy to help.

    The game is deceptively simple to start off with. But it's an "onion" game. The deeper you go, the more layers are revealed. The end result is a deep, intriguing, and, well, addicting experience.

    And it truly is partly an experience. This game is the product of one man, Eric Barrone- who spent literally years crafting this little world. Personal touches are everywhere.

    He was also striving to create the "perfect" farming sim- or at least, what he, as a Harvest Moon/crafting game fan would want. It scratches the itch, so to say, of all your simulator/crafting game desires; It's not overly difficult nor demanding- but neither is it overly simplistic or easy.

    But yeah! I'd love to help you out! Message me when you get it? I'll write out a starting-guide for you. I'll cede that the only time the game can feel a bit demanding/overwhelming is the very beginning- when you're dealing with limited funds, and inferior equipment.

    Anyways- good idea re: the mobile aspect of it! I've been thinking it would make a fantastic mobile game- especially on a tablet. But the current-gen phones could easily run this game. I know people playing this game on decade-old PCs, so even last-gen phones would pry run it.

    Cheers
