About Haunted Chocolatier

Haunted Chocolatier is a role-playing/simulation game that is presently under development.

In this game, you will take on the role of a chocolatier who lives in a haunted castle. To succeed in your new career, you will need to collect rare ingredients, create delectable chocolates, and sell them in a chocolate store.

There’s a lot more to the game than that, but it’s very early in production, so he doesn’t want to get into too much detail just yet.

Who is creating this game?

Eric Barone (aka ConcernedApe), the developer of Stardew Valley, is working on Haunted Chocolatier.

(He hasbeen working on this game by myself so far, and he has no intentions to bring anybody else on board at this moment.) However, once it’s near to completion, He will most likely seek assistance with console conversions and localizations. This game will also be self-published by myself.)

When will it be released?

Hecan’t yet commit to a release date. It’s still in the early stages of production, and he’d want to be allowed to work without the pressure of a release date, or even a projected release date.

Is it set in the Stardew Valley universe?

Mr Barone is not quite ready to share something like that yet.

Is it comparable to Stardew Valley in terms of gameplay?

Yes, in some ways, but no, in many ways.

Haunted Chocolatier, like Stardew Valley, is a “town game” in which you relocate to a new town and try out a new way of life. You’ll get to know the locals, accomplish your objectives, and grow in a variety of ways. All of this is reminiscent of Stardew Valley. The main gameplay and theming, on the other hand, are very different. In comparison to Stardew Valley, Haunted Chocolatier is more of an action-RPG. And instead of a farm, the focus of your efforts is a chocolate store.

How long has it been in the works?

In 2020, he began working on this game a little more than a year ago. Because he is still actively working on Stardew Valley-related topics, he has been working on it largely in the evenings and on weekends since then.

It’s not the first or only “new project” he has been working on, but it’s the one he thinks he will complete first.

A release date for the game seems to be a long way off, as the only known platform for Haunted Chocolatier at the moment is PC.
