Oh, neat! Thanks for the heads up; I'll have to give that a look.

At some point I need to snag a copy of Stardew Valley for my mom. I think she'd like it.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ha, that's great. It's a very relaxing game. Feel like it's one of those games anyone can play.

When you select the BETAS tab in the properties menu on steam you'll need to enter the code jumpingjunimo to initiate the beta.

So does that mean your mom plays video games in general?

She generally plays more casual games (TapTiles, Wordament, etc), though she still has a fondness for the Atari 2600. We also used to play WrestleMania on the Genesis back in the day. :) Weirdly enough, she was really into Rollcage in the early/mid-2000s. Pretty sure she was using my old P3-800 at the time.

I think Stardew Valley would be right up her alley. It's fairly light entertainment yet still reasonably deep (I mean, it's basically indie Harvest Moon), has a gorgeous aesthetic, should run well on her laptop (a surprisingly sturdy, yet cheap, ASUS touchscreen ultrabook from 2013-ish), and it doesn't cram 800,000 ads down your throat. I dunno. We'll see.

I really only played harvest moon 64, and this looked interesting when it launched. I do own it, but haven't really had the drive to put much time into it...which annoys my girlfriend greatly.

I bought the game for her a year or two ago, and she has like over 300 hours logged on that fucker, and we also have it on ps4.

When multiplayer officially releases, it may be the only multiplayer game the both of us can agree on playing.
