The critically acclaimed indie game, Stardew Valley, rose to fame without physical game sales. If you love physical game merchandise, though, this collector’s edition has tangible goodies in spades.
Thanks to a collaboration between the game’s creator, Eric Barone, and Fangamer, not only can you preorder a physical copy of the game, but an upgraded edition is available, as well.
The basic physical copy comes with a cute box and manual and will run you $29 for PC or $34 for the Switch. However, you get so much more if you upgrade to the collector’s edition (which should really be called the “painfully adorable edition”), which is $64 for PC and $69 for the Switch.
While you can absolutely enjoy the game without the extra loot, for the upgrade price you get all of the following:
- The game and manual
- A collector’s box
- A wooden farm standee
- A wooden pin
- A Junimo-centered comic book, featuring the adorable little in-game helpers
- A dead for your farm
- A Stardew Valley cleaning cloth for your glasses or computer screen
- A bonus poster (if you order before Aug. 15)
If you already own the game and don’t want to buy another copy, be sure to check out the merch. You can score all kinds of cute Stardew Valley gear at Fangamer, including books, vinyl, plush toys, and pins.
