“Stardew Valley” is now available on iOS and Android as of the 24th of October 2018.

Stardew Valley coming to mobile

If you’re looking for another way to escape “Real-Life” situations, you can now take to the Farm in Stardew Valley. Concerned Ape posted earlier this month have now released the 8-bit, open world, RPG, farm simulator to mobile devices on Apple and Android. (Google Play to come soon)

The best part about Stardew Valley in our pockets, is that we have access to the full game. (Up to Version 1.3 Single Player) The Story line and Game play are exactly the same to the versions we know well. Aside from some expected “formatting for mobile devices” — so far, it feels like home. While we have to pay a hefty $12.99 for this mobile game, it is great value considering this is the cheapest option between console, PC and mobile.

 

One thing that was amended for the mobile versions is the ability to control the game with the touch screen. The new “touch screen” controls are an interesting addition for a long-time player. You have the ability to touch the screen on everything — from walking, to viewing the inventory, crafting and moving through pages. I am always sceptical about controls on Mobile Games. I have to admit, I am finding it to be fairly easy to control. The only drawback so far is that my finger is constantly in the way when walking. Perhaps a bigger iPhone screen would be better?

Concerned Ape have also given us the option to bring our PC saves via iTunes to our mobile games. I was so impressed! That way, you don’t need to live through the painful Role Playing Events that occur when starting a new game. Of course, starting a new game sometimes feels like a new day, with perhaps a new farm plot and new love interests to explore. Or, perhaps an evil Joja run is in order?

Stardew Valley Mobile can be purchased on iPhone and Android from today.

The Sims 4 News July 2019 – Latest Update with Free Content and a New LOOK

Published

on

“The Sims 4” is looking funky fresh with new branding and lots of free content in their newest update, coming to PC this week.

Can you believe it? The Sims 4 will celebrate its 5th anniversary this September! The Sims creators are adamant that they won’t be finishing The Sims 4 any time soon, so why not a facelift? After all, change is as good as a holiday. Instead of sticking with the same box art for another few years, the graphic artists have updated The Sims 4 to bring a fresh look to their branding. Keeping the iconic greens and blues, everything has a new look. This includes loading screens, front page, box art and even the famous “plumbob” has had a makeover.

 

Do you start up a game with good intentions, get to the Create-a-Sim screen, then suddenly go cross-eyed and draw a blank? Rejoice! The developers have added a new feature called Story Mode. This funky new feature allows you to “answer questions” about your upcoming “creation” and your responses will determine how they should live through their simulated life. Choices affect traits, aspirations, and even provide your new sims with skills to get ahead of the game.

The Sims Team also have news for the console Simmers out there. “The Sims 4: Island Living” (the latest expansion, released last month) will be available on console this week.

If this isn’t enough to get you excited about pixelated people again, how about 1000 new (sort of) unlocked OBJECTS!? Or… maybe 350 new swatches for doors? Some weird things are happening over at The Sims studios, but hey, I’m happy for free content.

Australian Release Dates

“Stardew Valley” PC Multiplayer Update — Release Date!

Published

on

PC, Mac and Linux users, rejoice! The Stardew Valley Multiplayer Update is on it’s way.

The Multiplayer beta has been available for testing for a few months now but with an official release date of the 1st of August, “Stardew Valley” will allow Co-Op style game play, for up to 3 other people to join the adventure for free.

If you’re reading this and saying, “what’s this all about?” Here is a quick overview of this super cute, retro style game that’s been described as one of the best farming simulator in the last few years.

Created by ConcernedApe and produced Chucklefish, who also developed “Starbound”. The games starts with your character as a 9-5 office-head who receives a letter from your recently passed Grandfather. Congratulations! You have now inherited a dilapidated farm in the middle of nowhere.

Welcome to Stardew Valley!

However “Stardew Valley” isn’t just a “farming” game. There are a lot more elements that make Stardew Valley unique. Sure, running a farm, producing crops, raising animals and crafting is part of the story, but you have the opportunity to befriend and marry the townies, unlock the secrets of the community forest, there are over 100 of levels in a mine with upgradable weapons and tools, fishing, collecting, and so so much more.

I was late to the Stardew party. I finally played it when it was released on the Nintendo Switch last year. However, in the last month; I have clocked over 120 hours into my farm and I can honestly say, I’m no where close to completing it.

The addition of multiplayer to PC brings more options to expanding the game. Such as, being able to get more done in the day, delegating tasks and now even the option to marry the people you are playing with by crafting a wedding ring!

At this stage, the Multiplayer Update is for PC, Mac and Linux only — however one can only assume that there is a console update in the making. Fingers crossed!

 

Update to Multiplayer Stardew Valley on the 2nd of August in Australia. Download from Steam!
