The critically acclaimed indie game Stardew Valley steps to fame without physical game sales. But for those of you who love physical games, this collector̵7;s edition has concrete goodies in spades.
Thanks to a collaboration between game creator Eric Barone and Fangamer, you can pre-order not only a physical copy of the game but also an upgraded version. The basic physical copy comes with a cute box and manual (and gives you $ 29 for PC and $ 34 for Switch). But upgrading to the collector’s edition – which is really to be called the painfully adorable edition – for $ 64 (PC) or $ 69 (switch) gives you so much more.
While you can absolutely enjoy the game without the extra looting, for the upgrade price you get a collector’s box, wooden carrier, wooden needle, a Junimo-centered comic book with the adorable little helpers in the game, a death for your yard, a Stardew Valley cleaning cloth for your glasses or computer screen, and (if you order before 8/15) you get a bonus poster in addition to the physical game and the manual.
But hey, do not feel bad if you already own the game and you are not sure if you want to buy another copy of the game just for certain merch. You can make all kinds of cute Stardew Valley themed equipment on Fangamer such as books, vinyl records, plush toys and pins seen above.
Finally, if this post happens to have posted Stardew Valley on your radar and you suddenly long to play the casual idyllic farming simulator to forget about life for a while, check out this spoiler-free guide to get started with the game.
