Production still continues for Haunted Chocolatier, too
There are so many moving parts at this point for Stardew Valley, it can be tough to keep track of! Basically, most versions have welcomed the packed 1.5 update a while back: except mobile. But that’s still set to change by the end of the year.
Here’s the full picture from developer Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone, recently shared on Twitter:
“Hey everyone, happy ‘ween (spirit’s eve). I know I haven’t been too active lately, but don’t worry, I’m still here. And mobile 1.5 update is still on track for what I said last: ‘Before the end of the year.’ Thank you”
“What they said last” was roughly three months ago: but in this era of constant delays and production issues, it’s great to have a more up-to-date window. When asked about progress on Haunted Chocolatier by a fan, Barone reminded folks that they were working on it (citing “yeah a little” when quizzed on whether or not they’ve been working on spooky in-game ghosts), so there’s a lot to be done and micro-manage.
Barone has thankfully fostered a healthy environment of patience, as Stardew Valley fans trust in the process, and recognize Barone’s limitations as a mostly solo developer. It’s a great place to be, but they’ve earned that trust.
