Stardew Valley surpasses 1 million copies sold0 Comments
After releasing less than two months ago, Stardew Valley, a farming simulator, has become one of 2016’s bestselling Steam games. Since its initial launch on February 26, it has sold more than a million copies.
More than 400,000 copies were sold in the game’s first two weeks. It’s maintained a strong sales ranking since then. According to SteamSpy, Stardew Valley is right below H1Z1: King of the Kill, ARK: Survival of the Fittest, and Sven Co-op when looking at the current number of copies that have been purchased and redeemed on Steam accounts.
The game was produced by a single developer, Scott Barone, also known as Chucklefish Studios. Reaching such a large milestone is really an impressive accomplishment for such a small indie studio. The game has also amassed wonderful user reviews. As of right now, 98% of the user reviews posted on the game’s Steam page are positive.
If you haven’t hopped on the Stardew Valley bandwagon yet, it is available for $14.99 on Steam. It features relaxing, cathartic gameplay much like Animal Crossing or Harvest Moon. Right now the game is only available for PC, but the developers have mentioned the possibility of bringing it to consoles in the future.
