Stardew Valley has made its way pretty much everywhere around the world, but a fan was still taken by surprise when they found a playable version of the game on a test computer at Walmart. When Stardew Valley launched, it was only available on PC. As time went by, ConcernedApe continued to work on the game and eventually got it to become available on nearly every platform. Nowadays, gamers can enjoy the game on PC, Xbox, Playstation, Switch, and mobile devices.
Fans can play Stardew Valley on the go pretty easily on multiple platforms. Not only can they play it on a portable console like the Switch, but they can also get it on their phones by purchasing the app or through Xbox cloud gaming. It has never been easier to sit back and get lost in the peacefulness that Pelican Town provides.

The Stardew Valley community is known for getting the game running on peculiar devices. A while ago, a fan shared a video of themselves playing Stardew Valley on a Game Boy-like device. This time around, DawnOfANewLeaf, a member of the Stardew Valley subreddit, discovered the game in a place they most likely never expected to find it: Walmart. As they approached one of the test computers at Walmart, they noticed that Stardew Valley was installed on it.
Many of the members of the subreddit found this hilarious and immediately started coming up with background stories for the save files shown in DawnOfANewLeaf’s picture. One of the tabs marked 96 hours of total playtime in Stardew Valley, and while some commentators mentioned that it could’ve been a kid waiting for their parents, many started speculating that it was the store employees’ save file and that perhaps they would take turns and play during their shifts.
Some fans did the math and concluded that some of the save file users had to be using Stardew Valley money cheats, as they had unusual sums of money that didn’t add up compared to their total playtime. For example, Sarah had over 99 million gold but was only on the sixth day of fall of their first year. However, other players pointed out that they had come across these save files before in stores and that this was simply a demo version of the game. So, as it turns out, there was no cheating, and the Walmart staff weren’t playing Stardew Valley in their free time; they were simply premade save files for the store demos.
Stardew Valley is a hit Indie release that spawned a cult following thanks to its similarities to titles like Harvest Moon and The Sims. Players will take control of their own characters as they are dropped into the eponymous Stardew Valley and given an old dilapidated farm. They’ll cultivate new crops and relationships with the NPCs scattered around the area, as well as combat monsters and embark on other quests.
