The player manages their character's time and energy levels as they clear land, plant and tend crops, raise livestock, craft goods, mine for ores, and engage in social activities, including romances leading towards marriage, with the various residents of the small town.

While the player engages in all those activities he or she must also focus on earning in-game money to expand their farm.

The game is praised for its wide variety of content and role-playing gameplay features. When the game was first released on Steam it sold over a million copies within two months.

Aside from the upcoming console release the game's developer is also planning on expanding the game by including co-op multiplayer and adding support for other platforms.

Stardew Valley will launch on December 14th 2016 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A Nintendo Switch version is expected to launch in 2017.
