Stardew Valley, remastered in Unreal Engine 5, is a beautiful sight

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?

The pixel art world of Stardew Valley is a big part of its charm; it gives this indie darling so much personality.

Although we would never dream of giving up our love for the original, this Unreal Engine 5 version of Stardew Valley is truly breathtaking.

Shared by stopfootage on Reddit, we get a first glimpse of what life on our farm would look like if Stardew had hyper-realistic graphics.

As if we needed an excuse to watch, Stardew Valley for the hundredth time!

The praise from the fans was overwhelming.

“Ohhhh, so pretty (…) This is breathtaking. I would love to see more, please,” replied one player who was eager to see more of this new world.

Elsewhere, another Reddit user asked: “Please make this a demo for people to explore. I want to walk around here Stardew so bad.”

It’s breathtaking, we can’t deny that. However, few of us considered how disturbing the monsters of ConcernedApe’s story would be.

One Redditor did, however, reminding us how “terrifying” this world would be if we left out the pleasant scenery. “With this graphics, ghosts and ghouls and monsters are going to be insanely terrifying. Truly HP Lovecraftian scary,” they argued.

As mentioned in a previous comment, this is just a demonstration of what is possible and not an experience we can replicate ourselves.

But while the realistic appeal of this Stardew is not within reach, there are other experiences that are.

Stardew Valley: Distant Lands is one such expansion that adds more content to the base game, which features a lot of spooky things at night.

If the supernatural doesn’t scare you, there’s still a brutal new mode that’s likely to scare you. It’s tough, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.

There is still so much to discover in the world beyond our farms, even if that exploration can only take the form of pixel art for now.
