If you pay attention to the Steam sales charts, you'll notice a new indie game gaining a lot of traction. Stardew Valley is a Harvest Moon-inspired farming sim from developer ConcernedApe, otherwise known as sole developer Eric Barone.

On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we spoke to Barone about the game's success and the possibility of it making its way to consoles. Barone said that he's been talking to "some of the big names" and promised that "there's all kinds of stuff happening right now."

As for when we can expect the delightful Stardew Valley on consoles, Barone stressed that the game took four years to develop and he's still a one-man operation. "I don't even want to say when it'll come to consoles but it's something I really want to do and I want to do it as soon as I can," he says.

You can watch a clip from the interview below or wait for the full episode of The Game Informer Show later today to learn more about the future of Stardew Valley, which includes better controller support and multiplayer.
