ConcernedApe Shared New Haunted Chocolatier Screenshots and Game Details

Stardew Valley creator Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone has been working away on his next title, Haunted Chocolatier, for a while now and fans have gotten another glimpse at the game thanks to Twitter. ConcernedApe shared new Haunted Chocolatier screenshots of the work in title game on his official account while answering a few interesting questions about the upcoming game.

Haunted Chocolatier Screenshots

ConcernedApe took to Twitter to post the screenshot shown above. This screenshot show s the interior of an old building (presumably the castle he has hinted at previously). Following this post ConcernedApe followed it up with a new altered version of the image due to what he says is a “kinda weird” perspective pointed out to him by commenters (screenshot 2 above).

While the screenshots above are fun to look at, the details shared by ConcernedApe in many of his replies are fairly interesting. When asked about Haunted Chocolatier being on mobile ConcernedApe said he didn’t think it would be. This is an interesting departure from Stardew Valley which is playable on a number of systems including mobile.

Other interesting replies included further details on the gameplay loop. ConcernedApe really stressed that this is not going to be another farming game. It is it’s own thing that shares some similarities to Stardew Valley, but feels “quite different.” Additionally there will be some shared connection between the two titles, but it will not be “Stardew 2.”

On a more technical note ConcernedApe spoke a little bit about the design process. He is still creating the pixel art using and plugins. He also mentioned that coding for Haunted Chocolatier is being done using the Monogame framework instead of XNA. Additionally ConcernedApe touched on pricing of the new game. He thinks it will come in around the same price as Stardew Valley when it does release.

Haunted Chocolatier is the next title from solo-developer ConcernedApe. There is currently no release date slated for the game. Right now it is currently set to be released on PC.
