Stardew Valley는 오픈 엔드형 농장 체험 RPG입니다! 여러분은 스타듀 밸리에 있는 할아버지의 오래된 농장을 물려받게 됩니다. 대대로 전해 내려오는 도구와 코인 몇 개로 무장하고 새로운 삶을 시작하게 됩니다. 자급자족하면서 웃자란 농경지를 잘 나가는 내 농장으로 탈바꿈 시킬 수 있을까요? 쉽지는 않을 겁니다. 조자 코퍼레이션이 마을에 찾아온 뒤로 예전부터 고수하던 삶의 방식이 사라지고 있기 때문이지요. 마을에서 가장 활발한 곳이던 마을 회관은 이제 엉망이 되고 말았습니다. 하지만 스타듀 밸리엔 다양한 기회가 있습니다. 여러분이 조금만 노력한다면 스타듀 밸리에 과거의 영광을 되찾아주는 영웅이 될 수도 있습니다!
The game was developed entirely by Eric Barone, who goes by the alias ConcernedApe. He programmed it in C# using the Microsoft XNA framework. All the art was drawn using Paint.NET, and Propellerhead Software's Reason was used to compose the game's music and sound effects.
Stardew Valley was initially published by London game studio Chucklefish, best known for developing the space sandbox-adventure game Starbound. As of December 14, 2018, Stardew Valley is self-published by ConcernedApe on PC, Mac, Linux, XBox One, Playstation 4, and PS Vita. Chucklefish continues to publish Stardew Valley on Nintendo Switch and mobile platforms.

It was released to the public on February 26th, 2016. The purchase price is $14.99 USD ($7.99 USD for mobile).
