Acclaimed Farming Game Stardew Valley Out Now on Mac and Linux

    After a long wait, the acclaimed farming and life sim Stardew Valley has officially expanded beyond its initial PC release: You can now play the game on Mac and Linux.
    Developer Chucklefish announced on its blog today that the port has gone live after months of work. It originally launched back in February on Windows computers, and it quickly became popular. It sold 1 million copies in less than two months, encouraging the developer to bring the game to other platforms.
    [​IMG]Back in June, Chucklefish confirmed that the game is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U. In its update today, the studio stated that these versions are still in progress. Chucklefish is also working on multiplayer and a big update for the game. The studio promises to "update everyone as soon as more info is available." You can read more about the upcoming cooperative multiplayer mode and the large 1.1 update here.
    It may seem like a long time to wait for a port to Mac and Linux, but it's a little more understandable when put in context: Stardew Valley was an ambitious project made essentially by one person, Eric Barone.
    Personally, as someone who doesn't own a Windows computer, I'm really excited to finally check out the game. It was previously technically possible to play it on Mac computers, but it required emulation, third-party software, and some computer trickery to get it up and running.
    If you're not sold on the game, you can watch GameSpot producer Mary Kish explain why Stardew Valley will make you a happier person here.
