An iOS version is out later this month, with Android on the way

Stardew Valley is playable on nearly every current console and handheld — but not smartphones. At least, not until now: The hit farming sim is coming to iOS and Android, with the iOS version launching later this month.

“It’s the full game, not a cut down version, and plays almost identically to all other versions,” said creator Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone in a blog post. “The main difference is that it has been rebuilt for touch-screen gameplay on iOS (new UI, menu systems and controls).”

Both the Android and iOS versions of Stardew Valley are produced by mobile developer The Secret Police. Stardew Valley on mobile will also have all the most recent single-player content, but no multiplayer; mods will be absent too. At least players on Windows PC will be able to copy their saves onto their iOS devices via iTunes.

When the iOS version launches on Oct. 24, Stardew Valley will cost $7.99 and have no microtransactions. There’s no price or release date announced for the Android version yet. A trailer above previews what the little farming game will look like on an even littler screen than you’re used to until then.
