Five years after its launch, Stardew Valley is more popular than ever

Just before Christmas Eve, the long-awaited 1.5 update to the multi-million-selling farmer simulator was released Stardew Valley. And now it has been revealed that the game, which was originally released in February 2016, is more popular than ever, as it broke personal Steam records earlier this week.

Steamdb tells namely that almost 90,000 contemporaries played agricultural life on Sunday, December 27, which is the highest figure ever recorded for Eric Barone’s beloved life work. The ongoing 33% sale (9 euros and 37 cents instead of the regular 14 euros) has probably also increased interest a bit, and ends at the same time as the big Steam sale unwinds next Tuesday, 5 January.

Here is a video that goes through a hundred (!) News in version 1.5 of Stardew Valley.
