Stardew Valley Coming to Mac and Linux Next Week
Since its debut earlier this year, the Harvest Moon-esque farming simulator Stardew Valley has captured an impressive number of players on PC, with the game officially set to expand its territory out to Mac and Linux next week.
Following its release in February on PC, Stardew Valley developer and creator Eric Barone announced that the game will launch on July 29th, 2016 for Mac and Linux, with the game to be available on either platform for free if you already own the PC version of the title.
Barone also addressed to fans through Twitter that saves will transfer between the different versions of the game, though added “I’m not sure yet it Steam Cloud will handle it all for you or if some manual copy + pasting will be involved.”
He also stated that other updates coming to the game, such as multiplayer support, localizations for other territories, and the version 1.1 update “are still in progress,” while plans for console versions of the game for PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U are intended for release later this year.
