There are plenty of critical and commercial sensations out there that prove that indie games can become industry-wide phenomenon just as easily as AAA games can. Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone’s simulation RPG Stardew Valley is, without the shadow of a doubt, one such game, and over the years, it’s grown from strength to strength, enjoying incredible success on all fronts.
Unsurprisingly, it’s still continuing to do that, and recently hit another major sales landmark. The press page on Stardew Valley’s official website was recently updated, and it confirms that the game has now sold over 20 million units worldwide as of March 2022. That’s up from the 15 million sales that were announced in September last year, so clearly the game’s sales are maintaining solid momentum even now. Of its collective worldwide sales, 13 million units have been sold on PC.
Stardew Valley is available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS Vita, iOS, Android, Mac, and Linux- so yeah, plenty of places to get the game on, if you really want to. Meanwhile, Barone has now shifted focus to his next game, Haunted Chocolatier, which will see you play as a chocolatier in a haunted castle in a more action RPG approach to the sim genre.
