Stardew Valley is a farming simulation game developed by ConcernedApe. The game is set in Stardew Valley, which is an original, fictional town in the fictional state of Pelican Town.

Stardew Valley

The protagonist of the game is a young person who moves to Stardew Valley to take over their grandfather's farm.

The player’s goal is to make a living by farming, fishing, raising animals, mining for resources, and crafting items. The player can also get married and have children. There are a variety of different endings that the player may experience depending on certain in-game decisions.

Gameplay

The player must manage the protagonist's time, which is split between exploring the town, pursuing projects to increase their skills, and cultivating their crops and raising livestock. Managing the farm's finances is also a major part of the gameplay. It is possible to perform all of the actions solo, but it is possible to befriend the townspeople and encourage the development of relationships with them.

The player starts with a farm that is in a state of disrepair. The player is tasked with restoring it to its former glory. The player can plant different crops and grow fruit trees. There are three different types of crops: the player can grow vegetables, fruit, and flowers. 

The player can also fish in the nearby river and the ocean and catch fish and crabs. The player can use the materials he or she gathers to cook and craft items. The player can also explore the small village and interact with the townsfolk.

Graphics

The graphics of Stardew Valley are not explicit and do not need high-end graphic cards to run. The graphics in Stardew Valley are simple and stylized. The graphics are not the main component of the game and are more about the gameplay. 

Controls

The controls of the game are simple and easy to learn. The gameplay in Stardew Valley is controlled mostly through the use of the mouse and the in-game cursor. The player can use their in-game cursor to select and interact with objects in the in-game world. The in-game cursor can also be used to interact with people in the in-game world.

Replayability

The replayability of the game depends on how the player plays the game. The game can be played multiple times with each playthrough having a different storyline and different townsfolk. The player's choices affect the player's ending.
