Haunted Chocolatier has a “greater focus on combat” than Stardew Valley

Haunted Chocolatier may look a lot like Stardew Valley visually, but developer Eric ‘Concerned Ape’ Barone has been swift to point out one of the key differences. In a new blog post on the upcoming PC game’s website, Barone has pulled back the curtain on his approach to combat, shields, and stuns.

“Haunted Chocolatier has a greater focus on combat, so it needs to be very fun, satisfying, and engaging, while also appropriately fitting into the big picture,” Barone says. “You can rest assured that I’m not ‘copying and pasting’ Stardew’s combat. On the contrary, almost everything in Haunted Chocolatier, including the combat, is completely coded (and drawn) from scratch.”

One of the things you may have noticed from Haunted Chocolatier’s reveal is that characters use shields. Barone explains that these will prove handy in blocking and stunning foes, allowing you to attack them much faster if you get the timing right. Barone is designing the system with more cautious players in mind, but there will be plenty of “other off-hand items” for those of you who like to play more aggressively.
