The absolutely lovable and charming farming simulation Stardew Valley has probably redefined and perfected the genre. Since its original release on PC in 2016, ConcernedApe captured the hearts of many people around the world and has continuously updated the game for free ever since, and its love, passion and dedication to the game has garnered attention and admiration from everywhere.
We now know that the game has sold a staggering 20 million copies as of March 2022. As announced via the game’s website, there were understandably 13 million of those on PC. Given the nature of the game, its relaxing routine-based gameplay, and its deep yet straightforward gameplay, it’s the perfect Switch game to sneak into a morning session or two before work.
In September, the game hit 15 million sales, meaning it sold five million units in just eight months. And that’s years after the game first came out.
ConcernedApe probably has nothing further to do with Stardew Valley at this point – the number of free updates and the endless amount of content will keep us going for years. The developer is now working on a brand new game, Haunted Chocolatier, and has indicated that it has “no more plans” to update the farming sim.
