Stardew Valley 1.1 Update!

Stardew Valley, the ridiculously addictive simulation/RPG (which is native for Mac) about the hilarious complications of your simple life in the countryside, has been updated to version 1.1. Apart from an extensive list of bugfixes, it brings plenty of neat additions and balance changes, including:

– Five different farm maps to choose from at the beginning of your adventure, each one catering to a different playstyle
– A “Shed” and a “Mill” building available for construction
– A new quest and several new locations connected to it
– You can now get married to Shane or Emily
– New house upgrade that adds a cellar and teaches you the recipe to “cask” stuff
– You can now make void mayonnaise out of void eggs! Yum!
– You can move your buildings around thanks to Robin’s services
– Several Magical Constructions that provide bonuses and effects

That’s just a small fraction of the entire list of changes, though – if you want to see what else is new, grab yourself a cup of coffee and scroll through the entire changelog. Or better yet, make yourself a full coffee thermos and fire up Stardew Valley 1.1 to check them out first-hand!

Here’s the launch trailer, demonstrating all that Update 1.1 goodness:

Stardew Valley released for Mac!

Good news everyone! Stardew Valley, the irresistible indie sensation, is now ripe and ready to be picked up by Mac and Linux users as well. Off to the countryside, everyone, the rural life awaits!

Armed with only some basic tools and a handful of coins you begin ploughing the land, mining resources, raising animals, or even deforesting your corner of Stardew Valley. As your farming endeavors begin to pay off, your business and household will expand, and soon you will find yourself wondering whether you should rally the local community against the aggressive Joja Corporation or embrace their capitalistic ways. But before you go all revolutionary, you might want to first fix the front fence and put up that scarecrow in the pumpkin fields. You did promise your wife to get it done before dinner.
