Analyst firm ‘Superdata’ revealed that Chucklefish’s indie farming simulation role-playing game, Stardew Valley, has sold over 3.5 million copies. Stardew Valley initially hit the PC on February 26th, 2016, and came to Xbox One and PS4 on December 14th, 2016. The game also hit Nintendo Switch in October 2017.
Now while Superdata did not reveal the exact number of sold copies, we can take a look at Steamspy in order to get an idea of how many the PC sales actually are. And according to Steamspy’s data, the Steam version has sold 3.5 million copies.
As always, Steamspy’s data are not 100% accurate. Still, and even if we take into account its margin of error, the Steam version appears to have sold over 3.4 million copies. Not only that, but the game has not received any free weekend, meaning that these are all legitimate sales.
It’s worth noting that Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone, creator of Stardew Valley, will release a new multiplayer mode for his indie title in 2018!

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.
