Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone has been focused on Stardew Valley since its premiere in 2016, collaborating with other teams in adapting to consoles and mobile devices, and developing updates They have expanded the management game with features, environments, and local and online multiplayer.
After years of stating that he wanted to focus on other projects, last October he finally unveiled his next title: Haunted Chocolatier, another management game where you have to manage a haunted chocolatier, obtain materials, fight monsters and interact with the inhabitants from the city.
Barone has posted new images of the title over the holidays. On Christmas day he showed a screenshot of a laboratory, where new types of sweets for the store are expected to be investigated. In the image we can see the ghosts helping to chores, various instruments and books with recipes. New Years Day showed two other captures: a snow-washed cliff where a large house rests, and a bus whose upper part is used as a small vegetable garden.

The developer said a release Posted Oct 21: “With my next game, I wanted to explore more fantastic possibilities, experiences that take you beyond the ordinary. That’s where the haunted magic ghost chocolate comes in. Chocolate represents what is delicious. The enchanted castle represents the charm of the unknown. The ghosts represent the trace of the past. All of these things are important. “
“But don’t think for a moment that the fact that this game has ghosts in an enchanted castle is an evil or negative game,” continued Barone. “On the contrary, my intention is for this game to be positive, uplifting and life affirming. However, if Stardew Valley mainly channels the energy of the sun, Haunted Chocolatier channels the moon energy. Both are vital. “
Details of Haunted Chocolatier They are still scarce, although the developer will give more details of it throughout 2022. It has no release date and reach PC first and later to other devices. The developer’s first pear, the praised Stardew Valley, is available on all current platforms, plus Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass.
