Haunted Chocolatier is an upcoming action RPG from the maker of Stardew Valley

Concerned Ape, the creator of the Stardew Valley, has announced a new action RPG called haunted Chocolatier. Eric Barone (aka Concerne Ape) started developing this game in 2020, and it's still in development. He claimed that he wants to make it in peace and does not want any pressure or limitations for finishing it.

So, it looks like we will have to wait a little longer to learn the release date and other details. However, it is confirmed that he is working solo on this new project and aims to self-publish it, and he will take help when it comes to console ports and localization. We hope that Haunted Chocolatier comes to all platforms, and we can enjoy this action RPG soon.

All you need to know about the game

Haunted Chocolatier is an action RPG where you will be the owner of a chocolate shop. Isn't that everybody's dream? Wait, there is a twist! Don't forget the word Haunted. There will be a haunted castle filled with ghosts where you need to collect your ingredients to make chocolate and run your shop.

Concerned Ape says that it's an evolving game that is in development, so he is not sure where it will go. However, the core will be collecting ingredients, making chocolate, and running the shop. It will be a single-player game and not a multiplayer game. We can expect it to release on PC and hopefully other platforms as well.

Is there any similarity between Concerned Ape's Haunted Chocolatier and Stardew Valley?

Eric Barone said that although Stardew Valley and Haunted Chocolatier are both town games, where you move and start a new life, there are distinct. For instance, both titles' core gameplay and themes are quite different. Haunted Chocolatier will be an action RPG, and there will be chocolate shops instead of any type of farming.

Final Words

Haunted Chocolatier is going to be a relaxing, cheerful game that will have its own set of challenges. This new action RPG is still in development, so it will take time for the game to release as Eric Barone said that he is working only on weekends and evenings. Players can find more info about Haunted Chocolatier on its official website.
