My husband and I bought Stardew Valley a year and a half ago because we thought multiplayer co-op was “coming soon.” It’s still not here completely, but we spent the weekend playing the co-op beta and it’s awesome. I finally see what all the buzz eighteen months ago was about. :)
If you haven’t heard of it, Stardew Valley is a Harvest Moon-esque game where you start with a run-down farm that you have to fix up by clearing the land, planting crops, and tending animals. And fishing. So much fishing.
Because we’re playing co-op, I took over animals and fishing while my husband deals with the plants. Every day I go pat my chickens on the head and they get happier and produce better eggs.
I have a lot of work to do on book two, but I needed to take a weekend off because I’ve worked through the last few. And there’s nothing more soothing that bringing order to chaos. Virtually, of course, because who wants to spend the weekend cleaning a real house? Not me! :)
We also saw Solo this weekend and really liked it. I love Donald Glover from his Community days, so any movie with him in it is a win in my book. (If you haven’t seen Community, go watch it right now. I’ll wait.)
Now vacation time is over and I need to make some serious words happen this week. And in other book news, I think everything is (finally) ready to go for The Queen’s Gambit, so hopefully the pre-order will go up this week. Fingers crossed!
Did you do anything fun for the holiday weekend?
