Stardew Valley is an open-ended country-life RPG. You've inherited your grandfather's old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life. Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home?

Gameplay

In this game, you will be able to run a farm in the country. It's a long way from the city, but it's a great place to live with lots of possibilities.

In your farm, you can plant plants, raise animals, mine in the mine, fish in the river and ocean and also collect some items and money from the forest.

Graphics

Graphics of Stardew Valley are pixelated but they still look nice. The game contains many details which you can notice during gameplay. You can't say that game looks ugly. Pixel art is really good.

Replayability

Stardew Valley has quite good replayability potential. First of all, it is a  sandbox game, which is self-explanatory. Second, you can always try to play the game in a different way, make different choices, interact with different people. This will make your new gameplay experience totally unlike the previous one. Third, there are many different activities and secrets available in the game, which will require you to use different playing styles and strategies. For example, if you want to earn money and gain the highest total value of your possessions and money, you will have to focus on harvesting and selling crops and fish. This will be a very different experience compared to the one you will get by focusing on mining, combat, fishing, or other activities. You can also try to complete the game as fast as possible, not bothering with anything else.

Controls

Stardew Valley controls are easy to learn and there aren't many of them. The game runs pretty smooth and is highly unlikely to give you any lag.
