Hey ConcernedApe, (I don't know if you'll actually respond to this, just because I know your busy, so anyone who knows the answers to it, feel free to.) Q#1: How long did it take you to make Stardew Valley? Q#2: How much experience, if any, did you have with programming before going into University of Washington–Tacoma? Q#2.5: So I read on vulture.com that you got a degree in computer science, If you feel like sharing this is a little more personal question did you get a Associates degree, a Bachelors degree, or a Masters degree? and would you say it was needed to make a game like yours? or could I/we make a game, as jammed packed with stuff to do as yours, through tutorials and youtube? Q#3: Obviously you got your inspiration from Harvest Moon, but is there anything else that really inspired you to work through those long hours programming the game and make something of it? Q#4:In the long run would you have rather have gotten a little team together to make your game, like 3-4 people, to save time and stuff, or do you like the freedom you get when programming it yourself at the cost of time it takes to make the game?
