What is Stardew Valley?
Stardew Valley is a simulation role-playing game developed by Concerned Ape. Released in 2016, Stardew Valley allows gamers to explore a community and interact with many characters.
You've inherited your grandfather's farm and are now in charge of bringing the farm back to live in Pelican Town. Players are able to customize their characters and choose from a variety of different farm types. Throughout this journey, gamers can create a beautiful farm, establish relationships with other characters through gift-giving, mine and fight, and fish.
With its many different activities and beautiful graphics and music, Stardew Valley has become branded as a cozy game.
In this week's cozy corner, we take a look at Stardew Valley. Popular among the cozy gamers of Instagram, Stardew Valley is the number one cozy game out on the market.
Why is it deemed a cozy game? Well, who doesn't love to create their own farm, tend to plants and animals, and talk to villagers all while listening to relaxing music?
Stardew Valley is a game where you can spend hours upon hours building your farm, mining, creating relationships, and exploring.
My Stardew Valley Experience
I have put in many, many hours into Stardew Valley. Not only do I own the game on my PS4, but I also own the game on my iPhone and on my Switch. As you can probably tell, I love the game very, very much.
On my PS4 I am on year 4 Winter, which means I probably have hundreds of hours in the game...oops haha.
I find that you lose time while playing this game, it's so captivating, and there is so much to do that you get sucked into the gameplay. I've been spending my time beating the mines and working on the community center on my PS4, but on my Switch, I am focusing on building community relationships and romancing characters.
One of my favorite aspects of the game is being able to customize my own farm. I love organizing and creating, so being able to build different farm buildings and place them where I want to on my map is amazing.
I take my farming very seriously as it is my main source of income in the game next to selling artisan products like mayo and cheese. I spent hours working my way up to purchase all different types of farm animals, building coops and fenced-in areas for my animals, all so I can start building artisan products to sell and make that dough.
The community center is also my favorite thing to work on in the game minus the mines (which is the only "fighting" in the game you will encounter). The community center lets you explore the game and look for many different types of fish, forging products, food, and so much more. With each room you complete, the community center gets restored piece by piece, making it a great storyline to get into.
If you love Stardew Valley or are just getting into it and want to find more games just like it, then I got the perfect list for you.
