By now, you may have heard that Eric Barone (also known as ConcernedApe) has been working hard to create a new game. If you don’t know who ConcernedApe is, he is the creator of Stardew Valley. Stardew Valley is a very successful game that has been released on many platforms, including Nintendo consoles. Having said that, fans have long known that there is a new game in development, but there has been no other news since then.
Well, it has changed now. ConcernedApe released a brand new trailer for his next game. This game is called Haunted Chocolatier. ConcernedApe is not sure what genre it belongs to, because the game continues to evolve as development continues. However, ConcernedApe does state that a core aspect of the gameplay involves “collecting ingredients, making chocolate, and operating a chocolate shop.” Only single player games are planned.
ConcernedApe also explained, “If Stardew Valley mainly guides the energy of the sun, Haunted Chocolatier guides the energy of the moon. Both are essential.” As for the release date and the platform on which it will be released, relevant information will have to wait. ConcernedApe said that although the game’s development process may seem remote, he said “there is still a lot to do.” Therefore, the release date cannot be determined at this time, and he can only confirm the PC version now. You can see the reveal trailer of the game below.
