I made Stardew Valley alone over the course of 4.5 years. When I started, I didn't know much about making a video game, but I learned the necessary skills as time went on. It was my dream to make a modern game in the tradition of the SNES and PS1 Harvest Moon games. After Stardew Valley launched for PC, it quickly became a global success. At that point, I sought the help of my publisher, Chucklefish, for porting and localising the game.
With the help of Sickhead Games, we've brought Stardew Valley to Mac, Linux, Xbox, PS4, and most recently the Nintendo Switch!
It's really cool to see Stardew on a Nintendo platform... I was obsessed with my SNES and N64 as a boy, and nintendo will always have a special place in my heart.
I look forward to answering your questions!
Edit: It's been about 4 hours and I'm ready to have some lunch. Thanks so much for the questions, everyone, and my apologies to those I wasn't able to answer! Thanks for playing Stardew Valley and I hope you all have a great week
