Stardew Valley creator’s new sport is on the back-burner
After just lately asserting that he would start self-publishing Stardew Valley on all platforms aside from Nintendo Swap and cellular, sport creator Eric Barone promised extra bulletins would come quickly. Earlier as we speak, he had rather a lot to say about the way forward for the little farming sim that would.
Most shocking of all, Barone says he plans to create new content material for Stardew Valley.
His new sport, which is about in “the identical universe as Stardew Valley,” continues to be beneath wraps. The designer does not wish to announce the title till “the idea is absolutely realized,” and he is additionally having fun with the truth that he can contribute to the challenge “with none [outside] strain in the interim.”
That thriller sport is now “on the back-burner.” Barone admits he can not seem to hold himself away from Stardew Valley, noting that he continues to consider “new concepts for tactics to enhance and increase upon the sport.” In actual fact, he “might in all probability work on [Stardew] for the remainder of [his] life.”
Merely put, there is not sufficient time within the day for him to work on each tasks directly, and Stardew is the upper precedence proper now. Barone additionally says he is forming a staff to assist him create future Stardew Valley content material. “The replace I am engaged on proper now (1.4) will be one other solo replace, however after that I hope to have a staff in place that I can work intently with on future content material,” he defined.
As for followers who’re ready on previously-promised updates, Barone hears you.
I am conscious that saying “I am engaged on new content material” may be aggravating to these on consoles who do not have the 1.three replace but… Or to these on Swap who’re experiencing body fee points within the new patch. I additionally have not forgotten concerning the PS Vita customers, a few of whom have reported bugs to me. It is crucial to me that I make good on my guarantees… the concept of increasing additional whereas there are nonetheless lingering points and unmet guarantees disturbs me, and is not one thing I wish to be doing.
So I wish to make it clear that these points are my high precedence, and if there’s ever something I can do to assist this stuff occur extra shortly, it takes priority over any new content material… nonetheless, I do not do these ports myself, they’re carried out by Sickhead Video games, so there’s nothing I can personally do to affect that course of, past setting it into movement (Sickhead Video games does nice work, by the best way… and they’re making very quick progress on the console updates). I’m additionally doing what I can to see the problems with Swap multiplayer get fastened, however that’s additionally not one thing I can instantly accomplish. So once I do work on new content material, it is solely when I’ve no present avenue for addressing these increased precedence points.
I will be bummed if the subsequent sport by no means finally ends up seeing the sunshine of day, however I am nonetheless very into Stardew Valley and might’t say I thoughts that its creator is passionate sufficient to proceed engaged on updates.
