The creator of Stardew Valley is currently busy with development Damn chocolatierbut recently took the time to share some of the music that was composed for the game.
Eric ‘ConcernedApe’ Barone, featured on the recent Reason Livestream, spoke about creating the soundtrack and shared a tune for the ‘Bee Boss’ that is a little buzzy. From the effects and Barone’s hint, it sounds like we’re fighting a big bee in the game, right?
This means that unlike Stardew Valley, Haunted Chocolatier will have bosses to fight.
Aside from that fact, nothing else is known about the game, but it appears to be in a similar vein to Stardew Valley, according to a teaser trailer released in the fall.
At the time, Barone said Haunted Chocolatier will explore “amazing possibilities” with experiences that take you beyond the ordinary.
Early on in development, Barone basically said that like Stardew Valley, you’ll gather ingredients (like you would for cooking), but instead of making dishes and running a farm, you’ll make chocolate and run a chocolate shop. There’s more to it than that, but Barone hasn’t delved into the gameplay because it’s in such an early stage of development.
Currently, the game has only been announced for PC, but it will come to other major platforms as well.
Haunted Chocolatier isn’t the only game Barone is working on. Back in 2020, he announced he was working on two new games, but both were far from done. He also said that one takes place in the world of Stardew Valley but is not a farming game. The other wasn’t 100% sure about the world yet, but that it was somehow related to Stardew Valley.
As of March 2022, Stardew Valley has sold over 20 million copies across all platforms (up from 15 million in September 2021), with 13 million copies on PC alone.
