How about that. The indie game of the moment, Stardew Valley, is finally available on Mac!
Stardew Valley is the country-life RPG that keeps destroying sales records ever since it was released for Windows-PC on Steam on February 26th.
The other features planned for the near future are:
– Version 1.1 — A substantial content update
– Co-op Multiplayer
– Localizing for non-english regions
– Mac/Linux Ports
– Console Ports
Stardew Valley is a pixelated farming simulator about a boy who inherits a farm from his grandfather. From there, the boy will have to learn how to care for it and bring it back to greatness.
You could easily discard it as simply a PC version of the Harvest Moon games, but the game doesn’t stop there. Stardew Valley gives players more control over the design of their farms, the kinds of animals and crops to raise, and also introduces more interesting NPCs.
The incredible story of one man, four years, and fame
Stardew Valley is a good game, no doubt. But what I find truly fascinating is the story behind it. The game was quietly developed by one man over the course of four years until it was released earlier this year. From there, the game quickly earned a spot among Steam’s top selling games (right there among heavy-hitters such as Fallout 4, Tom Clancy’s The Division and Far Cry Primal). It now has a subreddit with over 50,000 subscribers and is rated Overwhelmingly Positive on Steam with 19,000 reviews!
Impressive numbers for such a small game right? Needless to say, I can’t wait to try it myself.
You can purchase the game on GOG.com for $14.99:
