On what fans can expect from Barone – who has already announced his next game, Haunted Chocolatier – he said “I’m not trying to make the next big indie hit”.
Continuing, Barone explained “I realise and appreciate that, when my next game comes out, I’m going to have a lot of people who play the game, just because it’s from the guy who made Stardew Valley“.
Barone also clarified that Haunted Chocolatier will “probably come out first,” and added that it is “another completely solo game, kind of like Stardew Valley, where I’m doing literally everything”.
On when fans can expect Haunted Chocolatier to release, Barone has said that it will release only when he’s “personally satisfied that it’s very fun and compelling, in every aspect“.
Although there’s no release date in sight for Haunted Chocolatier – or Barone’s mystery third game – many fans are still having plenty of fun with Stardew Valley. During Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ), a Stardew Valley speedrunner completed the game in just 17 minutes by bombing his farm and binning his tools. In less than 20 minutes, the Stardew Valley playthrough raised over £3000 for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
