Question: The 2016 indie video game “Stardew Valley” draws its main inspiration from what older franchise?

Answer: “Harvest Moon”. While Stardew’s creator had a few bits of inspiration from other sources (not to speak of his own creativity–everything from the game code to the soundtrack was created by a single man), its main intention was to revive the idyllic joy of the early games from the Harvest Moon series, while increasing the player’s freedom and options. It also deals with more adult, real-life issues than its inspiration did.
