Stardew Valley is an indie farming simulation role-playing game which was released for PC in February 2016.
The game was developed by Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone, and published by Chucklefish.
After its success and positive reception it was released for OS X, Linux, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Playstation Vita.
In the game the player takes control of a character who takes over their deceased grandfathers dilapidated farm – Stardew Valley.
The beautiful award-winning game combines farm simulation with RPG elements to create an absorbing world.
To the glee of many fans, now the popular village life game is heading to mobile devices.

How much will the game cost?
The full game will be available for £7.99/$7.99/€8.99 with no in-app purchases.
This includes 1.3 single player content, such as the Night Market.
Another piece of good news is that PC players can transfer their saved data to the iOS version via iTunes – which means nothing will be lost.
However, Barone says to “make sure to always back up your save data first!”
He continued: “Mods are not supported, and any save data transferred containing mods may cause compatibility issues.”
You can pre-order the game today, says Barone.

Will Stardew Valley mobile have multiplayer?
Sadly, Stardew Valleys mobile version will not have multiplayer.
But players will enjoy all the content from the recent 1.3 update, and has a custom user interface for mobile.
Game creator Barone has assured players it wont affect the launch of multiplayer on consoles – this is done by a separate team.
