The author of Stardew Valley showed the first concepts of the game

The author of the game himself, Eric Barone, took care of a small uproar on Twitter among fans of the farming simulator Stardew Valley. He discovered his old notebook with various concepts, sketches and plans from the development of the indie hit, which he gradually began to share on the social network.

The fans of the game immediately caught on to the cute drawings and are calling on Baron to publish them as a book, perhaps as a complete diary or artbook. The complicated development of Stardew Valley was already captured by Jason Schreier in the book Blood, Sweat and Pixels, but it lacks the newly discovered drawings. Eric Barone is currently working on a chocolate making simulator, Haunted Chocolatier.
