Game Busters Podcast Episode 24 – The Donkey Years | Stardew Valley

Alright, so it’s 2021, and that pandemic thing hasn’t quite gone away. As we continue to hunker down, we could all do with a cute farming sim to keep us busy.

Join Nirav, Rhi, and special guests Kate and Chelsea as we quit our jobs in the big city and deep dive into the history and development of Stardew Valley. Talking points include the beanaonomics, monkey butt, long-haired men, the alarming relevance of Pixar’s Soul, Joe Rogan’s Neighborhood, meeting your long-lost twin and Coco Bandicoot Spongebob. It’s Game Busters, gagoh!
