Currently enthralled with this game. I'm massively addicted. I have lists made out of what I want to achieve each season xD
Got it on Switch as I thought it would be best as a portable game that I can hook up to the TV when I want and that was definitely the right idea. Makes my train journeys far more productive :P
Very much recommend people try this out.

The creator was one guy who worked like 60 hours a week for four years to get the game made. He was also really open with the community and has been including them in the design process. Kudos to him, it's really paid off.

Even if he only saw $0.25 from every copy sold he'd still be raking in close to a million dollars. Every single cent of it was very well earned.

Hard work and dedication always seems to pay off
Didn't know about the back story to this game but I heard it's very good.

Congrats to the guy.

I wouldn't say "always". I think there are some people that simply have the passion, the drive, and the attention to detail and they can put out something incredible even on their own. It's a conglomeration of all the right traits that allow someone like him to put out something like Stardew Valley. Some people may have the drive and dedication, but not the attention to detail or the passion. Others might have the attention to detail, but not the drive or dedication to see it to completion. Others might be passionate enough about something, but they don't have the attention to detail or the hard work and drive to put out something great.

Congrats and well deserved. ConcernedApe must be a millionaire by now.

It just goes to show you that when you make great games, even if it is indies, it will always sell well.

If I made Stardew I would have the biggest ego in the world but concerned ape is still cool looking forward to the multiplayer update.
