‘Stardew Valley’ crops up on mobile devices
Farming simulator “Stardew Valley’ will be branching out to the mobile gaming platform through iOS and Android.
Game development studio Chucklefish made the announcement through its developer’s blog on Oct. 9. Developer ConcernedApe specified the iOS version will come out first on Oct. 24, while the Android version will follow shortly after.
London-based mobile development studio The Secret Police is currently handling the mobile port, while Chucklefish keeps a handle on the business and marketing side of things.
The game’s mobile version will be priced at $7.99 (about P433) and pre-orders went online at the time the announcement was made. There will also be no in-app purchases. The mobile port will also be released with all the version 1.3 content of the original PC game minus the multiplayer update.
ConcernedApe wrote that PC gamers can transfer their saved data to the iOS version via iTunes. The same can also be expected for Android, but ConcernedApe did not elaborate. Lastly, mods will not be supported. The developer warned that saved data with mods could cause compatibility issues.
Meanwhile, ports for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are already released and are scheduled to receive their respective multiplayer updates at a later date. /ra
