It has been five months since the farming simulator/RPG Stardew Valley came to iOS, and in less than a months time, it will finally be ready for Android.
The news of the game making its way to Android on March 14 was announced by its creator Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone.

Stardew Valley was originally released on the PC as a fan-made alternative to Harvest Moon, but it quickly became one of the most popular indie games of its time.
It has since been ported over to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and other consoles such as the Nintendo Switch where it once again quickly became a fan favourite. It was even turned into a multiplayer game last year, though sadly the mobile versions as of yet do not support that function.
The Android version of the game will give you mobile-specific improvements that have come about since the iOS version came out. You will now be able to save the game any time you wish to, even when closing the app. There is also a pinch-zoom function which lets you zoom in to track your characters or zoom out to have a look at your whole game at once.
Those who are interested in playing Stardew Valley on their Android devices can pre-register on the Google Play Store.
