What is Stardew Valley?

Stardew Valley is a farming simulation game primarily inspired by the Harvest Moon video game series. At the start of the game, the player creates their character, who becomes the recipient of a plot of land including a small house once owned by his or her grandfather in a small town called Pelican Town. The player may select one of five farm maps according to their preference in play style, such as one with extra foraging opportunities, one with more mining resources, and another with a fishing river. The farm plot is initially overrun with boulders, trees, stumps, and weeds, and the player must work to clear them in order to restart the farm, tending to crops and livestock so as to generate revenue and further expand the farm's buildings and facilities.

Gameplay

Stardew Valley is an open-ended country-life RPG! You've inherited your grandfather's old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life. Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home? It won't be easy. Ever since Joja Corporation came to town, the old ways of life have all but disappeared. The community center, once the town's most vibrant hub of activity, now lies in shambles. But the valley seems full of opportunity. With a little dedication, you might just be the one to restore Stardew Valley to greatness!

Farming

Farming is the skill associated with planting, growing, and harvesting crops on your farm. It's one of the main income sources for the game, and provides ingredients for cooking. When harvesting, you can stand in the center of a 3x3 square of harvestable crops and hold the right mouse button, then move the mouse over the crops to harvest more quickly. To plant crops players must first till a patch of soil using a hoe. If they intend to use Basic Fertilizer or Quality Fertilizer that should be applied before planting the seed. The crop must be watered each day to grow, unless it is raining (when they'll require no watering). If the player fails to water crops for a day, the crop will not die, but will not grow that day (effectively being delayed a day).
