I’m a huge Stardew Valley fan, it’s easily one of the best indie games ever made. What’s even more impressive is that it was completely made by just one person who goes by the name ConcernedApe.

Well Stardew Valley came out a while ago now and it’s been more than rumored that ConcernedApe has been working on a new game.

Today he dropped this new trailer for what’s he’s been working on. A new game called Haunted Chocolatier.

Right away you can tell it’s looks very similar to Stardew Valley. You have the same sort of town, villagers and everything only this time you’re running some kind of haunted chocolate factory instead of a farm.

It’s also apparently going to be more action and combat focused than Stardew Valley was which is an interesting choice.

There’s a new website for the game up here where ConcernedApe explains more about where I got the idea from and how it’ll play.

The main gameplay loop involves gathering ingredients, making chocolate and selling that chocolate in your shop. There’s more too it than that but he doesn’t want to go into that yet as he’s still fleshing things out and the gameplay is evolving organically as he works on it.

With this game he feels like he has more freedom to explore more interesting and fantastical things where he felt kind of stuck with the format of Stardew Valley.

If you’re interested in learning more about the game check out the frequently asked questions on the new website.

We have no idea when this will come out. It’s kind of a “When it’s ready” situation but we already can’t wait.
