Stardew Valley has reached another sales milestone by selling 20 million copies worldwide on all platforms.
The most recent figure is valid until March 2022, and 13 million copies of these records were purchased on PC alone.
Only eight months ago, it was discovered that the game had sold 15 million copies, bringing the total number to 5 million copies.
Eric Barone, the game''s creator, described the 20 million copies milestone as "really amazing" and that he couldn''t believe the game has "reached this level."
According to Barone, the previously announced 15 million figure might have been reduced a bit.
"My apparent increase in sales count was partly partly due to me doing a more accurate count this time around," he said. "The old 15 million number was an undercount because I didn''t have complete information and wanted to err on the side of being too low. With the entire move to self-publishing this year, I was able to do a more thorough sales count."
Barone said today, the average daily sales of Stardew Valley are higher than they were at any point since the release.
"I''m not sure why," said the author. "My belief is that the game is continuing to expand via word of mouth, and the more people that are playing it, the more people will share the game with their friends. I''m extremely happy that Stardew Valley is still so popular."
The next Barone game is a Chocolatier, which is unveiled. However, not much is known about the game at this time, except that it will include boss fights and explore "fantastical possibilities" with experiences that lead you beyond the ordinary. Like Stardew Valley, it will also include the gathering of ingredients, but instead, you will instead be making chocolate and running a business.
The game, although still in development, has only been available for PC, but it will be available on other major platforms.
