Just last month, farming simulation sensation Stardew Valley hit a 10 million units sold milestone, today the game’s creator Eric Barone (Concerned Ape) shared a little tidbit about his future ambitions.
On Twitter today he confirmed that he’s turned his attention to a pair of new projects, both of which may or may not tie in with the world of Stardew Valley. Here’s that Tweet:
I see this is blowing up and there are articles coming out, etc…. all I ask is please don't get too hyped at this stage. I want to avoid too much hype or speculation. I'd like to just make whatever game comes naturally to me without too much pressure or expectation.

Clearly both titles are in extremely early stages of development, but it’s great to hear he’s doing some new creative projects.
Shortly after this initial tweet Barone politely asked the internet not to overhype or rampantly speculate this announcement so I’ll respect his request. Barone infamously crunched for 4 years in order to make Stardew Valley a reality, an ordeal like that must have taken its toll, both mentally and physically.
I hope readers will join me as I say: ‘Take your time, Mr. Barone’. While I wait patiently, I’ll continue tending to my sheep and watering my pumpkin patch, all while dreaming about winning the blue ribbon at the village fair.
