I had been looking for a relaxing game to play on the Switch before bedtime and decided to pick up Stardew Valley. I’ve never played any of these types of games before, although, I’d heard good things about the Harvest Moon series. ‘Stardew’ looks to take some of the best elements from those games and improve on the areas where there were deficiencies.
I’m enjoying what I’ve played of it so far, there is plenty to do, from managing my farm and attempting to strike up relationships with the townsfolk. I’m still trying to overcome my natural tendency to rush things; this is most definitely not an a action game and patience is key.
I’ve named my protagonist after our late son, Luca.
