Haunted Chocolatier screenshot of the haunted manor

After spending an impressive ten years with Stardew Valley, the solo developer Eric Barone (ConcernedApe) is now finally moving onto his next project - Haunted Chocolatier. As the name would suggest, Haunted Chocolatier will have you manage a massive haunted manor, collect and grow an assortment of ingredients to create the most delightful chocolates possible, as well as run a little shop in which you will actually get to sell your candy.

What all of this looks like in actual gameplay, that you can get a little bit of a peek at through the freshly posted trailer. Have a gander, it's unsurprisingly a rather charming one:

Before you get too excited, it's important to mention that Haunted Chocolatier is still in early development. So while the trailer might make it seem nearly finished, the actual release date is likely still a ways away.

Once we get some more concrete information, or just another nifty little gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, you can learn a little bit more about what Eric Barone is attempting to achieve with Haunted Chocolatier over at the official website. Enjoy!
