Reminds me of the old manuals and such that would come with video games to help get you started. Beautiful illustrations, helpful guides, charming writing, it's got it all. A word of precaution: it WILL tug on your heartstrings.
I bought this book for my sons birthday, he just turned 8. He loves open ended building games. Minecraft, Dragon Quest Builders, any type of 'sim' game. He also loves to read...Alot. After seeing many reviews and praise of the game, I bought it for him...and me ;)
Because he doest really use online guides or wikis, I thought this would be a good physical source for him. WOW. This book is incredible. He absolutely adores the book, reading it cover to cover. The quality of the book is extremley impressive, I almost didn't want to ruin it by opening it. Great job guys, fantastic book, fantastic quality!
God, I love this book ! I used it over and over for all my re-runs of Stardew Valley and it's still brand as new. I love the art and all the useful info (even if all is available for free on the web, I don't care). If you are the collector type, it's for you! :D
I ordered this about a week ago, and Fangsmer shipped it out later that day, but it took FOREVER to actually get here. I can't really blame Fangamer for this (the blame falls on the USPS). The actual product is gorgeous and has the "home-made down to earth" feel of the games. I don't really like slipcovers, but the underside of the slip cover has a chart! That way you can hang it up like a poster! Very well-done!
I received my book in the mail yesterday and I have not been able to put it down since! I am new to stardew, using the mobile version, and there are so many new things I've learned already as I prepare for my third year. I wondered if I was buying this too early, being a new fan, but have now realized I wish I had it sooner! I've been using the wiki, but having a handy guide feels so much nicer than constantly switching to the website. The illustrations are GORGEOUS. Just incredible. And the info is so good. I love it.
Illustrated by Kari Fry and written by Ryan Novak, this official hardcover player's guide and art book is the perfect companion to the multiplayer update version 1.3 of Stardew Valley on Switch, PS4, XB1, or PC.
Its 200-plus pages feature hundreds of illustrations and tons of useful gossip about your new hometown and all the people in it, including:
- All the details on multiplayer mode and new content.
- Likes and dislikes for a host of potential friends and more-than-friends.
- A look at all the crops, tools, animals, and facts of farm-life you'll need to become an agricultural expert.
- At least one section titled "A Guide to Wooing and Marriage"
- A handy database in the back filled with information you'll want to keep close at hand.
It's easier to be a farmer when you have the almanac.
