Stardew Valley fans are just learning the game's original name

Stardew Valley underwent a variety of changes during its initial development, though the biggest change had to be its name, which was reportedly changed a few times before ending up as the title we know of today.

As a farming-simulator Stardew Valley is unmatched, though many would also consider it to be one of the best games ever made. It’s about a simple life of farming, building a home, chatting with the locals and making connections with the people and world around you. Not only is it fun, it’s also heartwarming and relaxing whether you’re playing alone or with friends, so it’s no wonder the game is as popular as it is.

That being said, what if I told you the name of the game wasn’t originally going to be Stardew Valley? The current title is charming but with an air of mystery to it at the same time, so it’s hard to imagine the game being named anything else. However, according to the game’s wiki page, the “game was originally meant to be called Sprout Valley.”

The name was changed due to the game’s developer, ConcernedApe, believing it sounded more like a Harvest Moon location rather than its own thing, and apparently even “considered naming it Stardrop Valley.” This was later changed to Stardew Valley, which definitely sounds a lot better.

Years later Stardew Valley is one of the most popular games on the planet, with players on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo platforms. It’s also still getting updates, with a new one due for release sometime in the next few weeks, though it’s taking longer than expected.

Makes you wonder if there’s an alternate universe out there with a game called Sprout or Stardrop Valley that no one has heard of, or maybe it’s even more successful because of the different name? Who knows.
