Stardew Valley launched on Switch one year ago. To celebrate, developer ConcernedApe shared a message with Switch owners through the system’s news feature.

Here’s what was written:

Hope you’re all having fun playing Stardew Valley on Switch! With the 1-year anniversary of the Switch launch approaching, I wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on the amazing journey Stardew Valley has undertaken!

Six years ago, I began working on a simple farming game as a project to improve my programming skills. Over time, the scope of the project grew and grew until it had become something bigger than I ever imagined… Though I was proud of what I had created, I never dreamed the game would become so popular and make so many people happy. Having grown up as a huge Nintendo fan, seeing my game on the Nintendo Switch feels surreal but also brings me a lot of joy.

Because of the success of Stardew Valley, I even had the opportunity to meet Mr. Yasuhiro Wada, the creator of the early Harvest Moon games. It was those early Harvest Moon experiences on the Super Nintendo that inspired me to create Stardew Valley, so being able to meet the mind behind the game was incredible (and he was even so kind as to sign by SNES Harvest Moon cartridge)!

I’m still very excited about Stardew Valley and what its future holds. With the upcoming multiplayer update there is so much life left in the valley… and Nintendo Switch is truly a perfect home for the game.

Thanks to everyone for playing!
