    I'm glad that the Chucklefish team knows great potential when they see it. They are making a very good name for themselves in the indie game business!

    Stardew Valley is another game that I know will take my life away from me and I am totally okay with that.

    What do you all think of Chucklefish helping other developers?
    And what are your initial thoughts on Stardew Valley?

            As Machiavelli once said, he who helps others to greatness in turn sow the seeds of their own destruction.

            However, another thing he did say was "Do the means justify the end?"
            The Chucklefish crew, not just Tiy, are sacrificing alot of themselves by helping others, (Sending even a few developers to other projects to keep them busy/help others with their games) and spreading it seems an aura of joy into the indie game territories that will most likely give them ALL a foothold in times to come. So yes, if you had to ask me, this is just as much benefitting them by advertising other games, because A. The game being promoted's fanbase now knows of Starbound, while we the fans of Starbound are introduced to other great games they endorse.

            This can only end in great times for everyone. And as for Stardew Valley, I am seriously happy Tiy advertised this game, Ive been watching this game on Steam and it has rocketed through Greenlight since Tiy started promoting it. And I personally can't wait to play it with my girlfriend once it comes out :)

              ChuckleFish is doing amazing things for indie gaming and I cant want to see what else they have under their belt. Once I have the skills required I would love to work for a similar company.

                I think it is really awesome that Tiy is helping to get these other games published. He is helping other devs get noticed, while also expanding Chucklefish's purpose beyond simply developing Starbound. This bodes very well for the future of Starbound and the company in general.

                  Saw the trailer and I have to say I'm intrigued. Can't claim to have played many of the Harvest Moon games but I might give Stardew Valley a try when it comes out.

                  As for Chucklefish helping out other developers and lending their efforts to other games, I'm all for it. Can't put all your eggs into one basket, after all, and both Stardew Valley and Treasure Adventure World are looking to be pretty interesting as well.

                    The moves that Chucklefish have made really makes me feel excited for the future. I wish them great success!

                      As long as Stardew valley doesn't fall down the path of all those Facebook farming games, I think I'll like it! The thing I look for most in games is playing with friends (not at them such as in social games), and while I have never played Harvest Moon, this looks interesting at least, and I'll be sure to give it plenty of consideration when it comes out!

                        Stardew Valley will be nothing like the facebook games. I've played many Harvest Moon and Rune Factory games and this one looks like it's in a similar vein. In short, it's gonna wicked relaxing, and most of all fun.

                          Aside from the grid system and farm theme they are not really similar.

                            First, I love the name! Second, I really like what I've seen in the trailer. It reminds me of a cross between Minecraft and Animal Crossing. That being said, I'm not sure if I would play this game in multi player. It looks like it may be more fun in single player. I'm also not sure if I would want to play it on a pc. I think i would rather play it on a smart phone or tablet, but I'm not sure how much it would limit the game. Either way ill be keeping an eye on this game!

                              Stardew Valley has much more in common with the Harvest Moon games than it does with Farmville (I've never played Farmville myself, but I've read about it). While I was watching the trailer and it brought me back to the fun of farming in Harvest Moon.

                                Thank you everyone for reassuring me! (And also for not being aggressive about it, I really like it when people on the internet are civil! :))

                                  Indeed Chucklefish is making some very good calls on what games they decide to go after getting the ability to publish. I have been following Stardew Valley ever since it first had any in-game images of it. Harvest moon'ish + Zelda + solo/4player co-op = love. It is nice to see it having a good publisher. Look forward to the game being released,voted on it on Greenlight a long time ago and added to my collection. Gonna enjoy this game quite a lot.

                                      I dunno if you'e seen the trailers yet, but there's no way it's anywhere close to being like those.

                                          ConcernedApe made a great choice too, don't forget. :)

                                          If this is anything like the Harvest Moon games then it won't end up like a facebook game. The big difference between Harvest Moon and Farmville is immersion and the sense that you're actually working the farm rather than just clicking a few things every couple of hours. (among many other things)
