You may have noticed that Nintendo Switch’s news section contains an interview with Eric Barone, the developer behind the acclaimed Stardew Valley, which is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Mr. Barone talks about the game’s success and what is next for the series, which is the multiplayer update which should hopefully be coming soon. Here’s what he said:
“Six years ago, I began working on a simple farming game as a project to improve my programming skills. Over time, the scope of the project grew and grew until it had become something bigger than I ever imagined… Though I was proud of what I had created, I never dreamed the game would become so popular and make so many people happy. Having grown up as a huge Nintendo fan, seeing my game on the Nintendo Switch feels surreal but also brings me a lot of joy.”
“I’m still very excited about Stardew Valley and what its future holds. With the upcoming multiplayer updatethere is so much life left in the valley… and Nintendo Switch is truly a perfect home for the game.”
