Indie darling Stardew Valley launching on App Store later this month

Concerned Ape’s farming RPG Stardew Valley is set to release on mobile devices.

The tranquil game will find its way to the iOS App Store first and will launch October 24th, with a release date on Google Play currently unspecified.

The RPG was rebuilt for mobile by London-based mobile development studio The Secret Police in collaboration with publisher Chucklefish and original creator Concerned Ape.

The iOS version includes new touch-screen controls and a redesigned AI to optimise it for the mobile platform.

Separating the wheat from the chaff

Stardew Valley’s tranquil experience centres on a typical city-dweller who moves to the countryside to take over their grandfather’s farm and escape modern corporate life.

Players can engage in the various simplicities of domestic countryside life, from raising animals and growing seasonal crops on a farm, to raiding caves and encountering dangerous monsters.

Stardew Valley will set players back $7.99 (£7.99 and €8.99) and will feature a transfer system so PC players can transfer over their saves.

Pre-orders for the RPG will go live on the App Store today.
