Stardew Valley Is Coming To Android on March 14th

Stardew Valley, one of the best games to play when you want to take a break and relax is finally making its way to Android on 14th March.

Stardew Valley originally released on PC and is a game that is heavily inspired by Harvest Moon. However, Stardew Valley’s gameplay and world captivated people to such an extent that the game instantly became a hit and got released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch and iOS.

All that remains is the Android platform and it is great to see that it will finally make its way to it. Sadly, the Android version will lack the multiplayer features that are present on the Switch at launch and there’s no confirmation if it will be added later.

For those who don’t know what Stardew Valley is, it is a game where you quit your desk job to move to your grandfather’s farm in a small town to build up his farm. While there you meet a host of characters that live in and around the town, explore the various locations like caves and forests while also learning more about each character and building up your farm.

The beauty of the game is that you can approach the game however you want. You can sit back and focus on your farm or go out and fight the different monsters in the caves. You can decide whether or not you want to help the people of the town and are not forced or obligated to do anything.

It’s a great relaxation simulator where you can just shut your mind off and have a show, stream or music playing in the back while you play the game.

Stardew Valley Coming To iOS On October 24, Android Later

Stardew Valley is coming to mobile, and it’s actually releasing on the iOS App Store in just over 2 weeks time, on October 24th!

The mobile port is being developed by London-based mobile development studio, The Secret Police, who have been working closely with me for about a year. Chucklefish has been handling the business and marketing side of things. While the game will launch first on the iOS App Store, The Secret Police are currently working on finishing up the Android version, and I hope to give you more news about an exact launch date soon.

Key Features

• Supports iPhone and iPad gaming, just make sure to check on the App Store page whether the game is compatible with your iOS version

• It’s the full game, not a cut down version, and plays almost identically to all other versions. The main difference is that it has been rebuilt for touch-screen gameplay on iOS (new UI, menu systems and controls)

• £7.99 / $7.99 / 8,99 € with no in-app purchases

• Includes 1.3 single player content, such as the Night Market, but not Multiplayer

• PC players can transfer their save data to the iOS version via iTunes – but make sure to always back up your save data first! Mods are not supported, and any save data transferred containing mods may cause compatibility issues.

Pre-orders are available today

I want to be sure it is clear that the development of the mobile port has had no impact on the development of the console Multiplayer ports, as they are being worked on by two entirely separate teams/companies. Console multiplayer is making great progress and I have every intention to release it as quickly as possible. For a quick update on where it’s at, the Switch Multiplayer update is coming along well, and has now gone into QA (quality assurance testing). Xbox One and PS4 Multiplayer updates will follow (all being done by Sickhead Games). I promise to keep you all updated on any news I get regarding release time frames for all the consoles. I really appreciate everyone’s patience.
