I’m having a really, really good play-through of Stardew Valley right now. I’ve only ever seriously played through once, but that was immediately after it originally launched on PC. Right now this play-through is on the Switch, and I’m playing 100% exclusively with my wife.
Together we sit on the couch with the Switch docked so it’s on our tv, and she holds an iPad and looks up all the great little details on the wiki that she and/or I want to know (we determine how much we want to spoil) while I control our joint character.
We’re halfway through Winter in our first year, and I think we’re making really good progress! We’ve actually managed to finish the entire craft room in the Community Center, and made headway into nearly completing several others. Right now the biggest thing holding us back is actually getting to the desert.
My first personal play-through I never felt this progressed or wealthy. We only had maybe 4-5 3×3 crop plots, but we certainly maximized our profit potential. Right now in the winter we have chests full of crops that are feeding our 6 kegs and 6 preserves jars.
We have a coop full of chickens, a barn with cows, our house upgraded with a kitchen, and a few other farm goodies. Oh, and our character got married to Abigail who, once you get to know her, turned out to be pretty awesome. She feeds the animals, waters crops, makes breakfast, plays video games, waters the dog. Perfect in every way!
I’m really excited to see more of the new stuff that was added and progress further into the mines to unlock the desert and beyond. My wife is super, super into the game and wants to play for years. So we’ll definitely start working on the aesthetics of our farm layout to share some screenshots.
What about you? Play anything good this weekend?
