Stardew Valley announces worldwide sales of over 10 million copies

Even if it feels like an edge case, sometimes dreams do come true, though perhaps lone developer Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone never expected this: Stardew Valley has officially sold over 10 million copies across the world.

Four years ago, Barone placed the game on Steam Greenlight to gauge interest. Since then, Stardew Valley has seen immense growth with a publisher in the form of Chucklefish Games (which Barone eventually took back from the company), a variety of updates (horse hats!), arrival to a number of platforms, and (more specific to us here at MOP), a multiplayer mode. The game will continue to push onward with help from a team, as evidenced in one of its more recent updates.

As you can expect, Barone is feeling pretty pleased about the milestone. “It’s strange & amazing to think back to when I was making this game in my bedroom w/ no clue if anyone would like it,” he wrote in a tweet. “To everyone who has played this game, supported it, and made all of this possible: Thank you!!”

I’m still stunned when I look at the game and realize that one person made it. This guy deserves every penny earned, and more.

Well deserved. Hard to believe it was made by one person mostly.

There are so many of these great indie titles out there, like Rise to Ruins or the similar to Stardew, Graveyard Keeper. So many games that deserve to sell way more than “AAA” shite.

In light of all the bad games that come out nowadays – there are a few lights. Stardew Valley is the prime example of gaming’s potential when experimentation, vision and skill all come together.

The guy deserves every bit of success and more.

Well deserved, that one-man game is a masterpiece.
