Your character has a few hands-me down tools to get started with as well as a few coins. Your character is on his way to begin his new life. His mission is to live off the land and tame the overgrown land into a thriving farm. Your character must expand his farm as well as help the town the farm is located in.

Creating and building the farm to your liking is a lot of fun.  It’s fun to create your home and design your yard and fences and get detailed with your home. Learning how to create everything is a lot of fun.  The idea is to create your home and then expand your characters farm. The idea is to keep improving and expanding your home and fields.  Your character will want to grow more crops and keep growing. You must manage your characters time and energy level in a thoughtful way. This way he will have enough energy to clear his land and plant his crops and keep them growing healthy. The character will need to mine for minerals in the caves and will also have a social life that will include romance and lead to marriage.  Your character will be able to fish and cook to help feed himself.

There are many people (NPC – Non Player Characters) in the town of Stardew Valley that your character will interact with. Throughout the game your character will raise plants and animals and earn money to help him do the things he needs to do to have a healthy life.  Your character will look for certain objects or minerals to help earn rewards. Your character can go on quests in an effort to earn more money. Throughout the game you must make sure you are paying attention to your characters health and energy.


If his energy becomes too low he will automatically be returned to his home to recuperate and restore his energy overnight.  If your character loses too much health the energy and money of your character will be reduced. A multiplayer version of this game is in the works which will allow the character to work with other characters to get the land farmed and animals raised. This game is a lot of fun and will provide hours of entertainment for players.
