Is it actually possible thatis a prequel to Starfew Valley? Fans believe it could be after creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone teased fans with a screenshot showing an old man with a long white beard in bed.
Barone shared the screenshots on X (formerly known as Twitter), and it looks remarkably like Grandpa, who at the start of Stardew Valley gives the main protagonist rights to an old farm plot as their inheritance.
Will Haunted Chocolatier explore a similar scenario, but this time within a chocolate factory? We think it's very likely.
Haunted Chocolatier is a prequel to Stardew Valley?
One fan thinks they've connected the dots and that, "Grandpa" is indeed the same character who owns both a farm and a chocolate factory, establishing him as a "multi-industry mogul".
Okay HEAR ME OUT: Haunted Chocolatier is synchronous with Stardew Valley- Grandpa gives one grandchild the farm, and the other the chocolate shop (Grandpa is a multi-industry mogul)👩🏻🌾👩🏻🍳 the Stardew Valley character we all play has a sibiling in another town, running another…— Mads (@startupwithmads) September 5, 2023
That could certainly be possible, but the question is, did Grandpa give out the farm first or the chocolate factory?
Hopefully, we can get more clues in the future as Barone says that he has more screenshots to share, and will publish them when they feel like it. He's currently working on Patch 1.6 for Stardew Valley.
I am working on the 1.6 update right now, but just wanted to share a HC screenshot, I'm sitting on a lot of screenshots that I could share, just felt like it— ConcernedApe (@ConcernedApe) September 5, 2023
There's no release date yet for Haunted Chocolatier, but hopefully we will know more by the end of the year.
