Stardew Valley Creator Talks About the Future of the Game

There’s another game in the works!

Recently, the Stardew Valley creator took to Reddit for an Ask me Anything. There were so many different topics addressed about anything, and much more. Specifically, he talked about the future of Stardew Valley, if there will be a physical version, touchscreen support and more. Here are some of the best responses from the AMA.


Stardew Valley Creator AMA

On new content or a sequel…

You can certainly expect more games from me, but I haven’t made any plans yet as to whether there will be a Stardew Valley sequel or more content

On plans for new games…

I have plans for my next game, but I don’t want to reveal anything for a while… creating hype too far in advance is a lot of pressure, and ultimately I don’t think it benefits anyone. I prefer to work in an isolated bubble

On the Pam glitch when she disappears completely…

I think this is actually a bug that’s been in Stardew Valley from the very beginning… and I’ve still never figured out why/how it happens

On a physical version of Stardew Valley for Switch…

No definite plans yet, but it’s being considered

On adding touchscreen support on Switch…

I’m not sure… I think it’s unlikely, but I’ll ask Chucklefish/Sickhead if they think it’s feasible at this point

More on what’s next…

Yes, my next game will take place on the same planet as Stardew Valley, although it’s not a sequel or expansion in any way

I don’t want to reveal too much at this point, but I am thinking of approaching my next game with a similar mindset to Stardew Valley — take a style of game that was never fully realized (or that changed trajectories, leaving unexplored possibilities), and carry on the tradition in my own weird way

On plans to release other Switch games…

I would like to, but it all depends on timing and what happens in the next few years

On improving save times…

I’ve asked Chucklefish/Sickhead Games about this and we’re going to do our best to improve it. However, it might ultimately not be possible. I take responsibility for that, since I coded the original save system, which worked fine on PC but was really not efficient or optimal. But now it’s so deeply integrated into the game that it would be extremely difficult to rewrite it.

Thanks to Nintendo Everything for compiling this list of quotes. We’ll be sure to let you know about all Stardew Valley and Nindie news!

I'm the head honcho here. I love Nintendo, and I love writing about it all. Ask me sometime about why I believe Waluigi is a ghost.
