He is making something else, Haunted Chocolatier.

It looks like he's effectively using Stardew Valley as a testing ground for features to see how they might work in that game.

So, not a direct sequel, but not a completely unrelated game either.

The cozy-game genre specifically is a relatively recent category, even if there are plenty of older games that could fit into it.

It definitely isn't a term you would have seen back when Stardew Valley was released.

And then it says the reason that Hades 2 has resource gathering is because stardew valley influenced it…

That's not how you should read this section of the article.

Though Stardew Valley did not invent the farming genre – and obviously took a lot of inspiration from Harvest Moon – it certainly triggered the avalanche of similar farming games that followed. On top of that, numerous games have farming and other life sim elements in them now, regardless of genre.

"On top of that" phrasing implies they are making a separate point.

Seems to say the exact opposite from what you are claiming?

Wakestones are limited without microtransactions

But not that limited, you can find the shards and even wakestones from playing the game. Even the MTX alone you can only buy 5 max, which isn't enough to ever make a difference in the game.

All of which just happens to encourage mistakes that can only be fixed using items which are very limited without microtransactions.

This isn't true.

Bummer that we have to wait on the patch for the Xbox version.

I'm going to be honest, I have a hard time reading any usage of the word "gem" as something other than sarcasm these days, haha.

Always interesting to read about some of the specific considerations to go into features that may not seem that complicated at first glance (especially to the layman).

The appearance change item can be purchased in-game and portcrystals are also findable in-game. So, at best, these items provide a small "headstart" to someone playing the game from scratch.

If anything, the biggest issue is that they are kind of a waste of money.

Sounds like a accurate sequel to me, haha.

Though the micro transactions seem pretty innocuous to me?

Looks like the character limit is too low to include all the current reviews.

Do we believe them?

Is there any specific evidence to support EAC being the issue?
