Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone tweeted a "thank you" to everyone who has played, downloaded, and supported Stardew Valley in the four years since its launch. "It's strange [and] amazing to think back when I was making this game in my bedroom [with] no clue if anyone would like it," Barone said. "[That was] four years ago."
