ConcernedApe’s Haunted Chocolatier out when he’s “personally satisfied” with it
Stardew Valley creator ConcernedApe is hard at work on his next game, Haunted Chocolatier and it will not be out until the developer is personally satisfied with it.
The latest developer diary discusses combat mechanics like shields and stuns, and ConcernedApe says that the game needs to be “very fun and compelling” before it's ready to launch.
- Haunted Chocolatier is more focused on combat
- It’s “positive, uplifting” and full of ghosts
- No release date has been announced
- Stardew Valley has sold 15 million units
New design: “Rest assured that I’m not “copying and pasting” Stardew’s combat,” he said. Almost everything “including the combat, is completely coded (and drawn) from scratch.”
Playstyles: If you want to play defensively, shields can block attacks and stun enemies before you attack, but if you want to play aggressively you are also free to go on the offensive. There will be other off-hand items than the shield as well.
