Each and every time I watch these retro isometric games, I keep asking myself why indie devs have not embraced and exploited this visual style. Am I the only one that finds this cute, cool and sexy? Nyah, can’t be. But anyway, Stardew Valley is an open-ended country-life RPG with support for up to 4-player co-op that blends together Minecraft with Harvest Moon.
According to its official website, Stardew Valley will feature over 80 achievements, 30 unique characters and over an hour of original music. In this game, players will be able to gather resources and use them to build a variety of buildings and structures.
Stardew Valley has also some RPG elements. As you make your way from a struggling peasant to a master farmer, you’ll level up and earn skill points to distribute in 6 different areas: farming, mining, digging, fishing, foraging, and luck. As you progress, you’ll learn new cooking and crafting recipes, and unlock new areas to explore.
Players will also be able to get married, explore vast and mysterious caves, go fishing, become part of the local community, cook delicious meals and craft useful items to help them out, and customize the appearance of their character and house.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
