Haunted Chocolatier release date and platforms
In terms of platforms, the developer has only committed to PC for now, but said it has “all intentions of bringing it to other major platforms as well.”
We’ll almost certainly see Haunted Chocolatier supported on Steam Deck, though we expect it to arrive on Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, and PS5. However, this may be a delayed release as with Stardew Valley.
Unfortunately, the game doesn’t have a release date yet – not even a vague “2022” release window. The details of the release of Haunted Chocolatier are not known at the moment, and in the game itself Frequently asked questions page (opens in a new tab)ConcernedApe says:
“I can’t commit to a release date yet. It’s still relatively early in development and I want to be able to work in peace without the pressure of a release date.”

Haunted Chocolatier: History and Setting
It looks like Haunted Chocolate Maker may contain more sinister elements than the previous ConcernedApe game, Stardew Valley. While the trailer shows the friendly spirits helping to run your chocolate shop, we also meet a bartender named Nigel who doesn’t seem thrilled that another chocolatier is coming to town.
We know some stories will overlap Stardew Valleybut it remains to be seen how it will work. So far, ConcernedApe has wanted to clear this up Haunted Chocolate Maker will have an independent identity. Reiterating that when talking to a fan in Twitter (opens in a new tab) response, ConcernedApe said:
“It’s going to be a separate game with an independent identity…it’s not”[Stardew Valley 2]”. But there may be some common knowledge; I haven’t figured out exactly to what extent the two things will be connected.”
Haunted Chocolatier: gameplay
Thanks to the teaser trailer, we have an idea of what to expect. For starters, there are many similarities to Stardew Valley.
The most obvious is the return of Stardew’s iconic pixel art style, which will bring the game’s new characters and locations to life. We also see that Stardew’s combat and romance systems will return.
ConcernedApe stressed that this is a game still in very early development, so it will be a while before we are likely to see new features added to the game. Haunted Chocolate Maker. There is even a chance that some aspects will be removed or changed.

Haunted Chocolatier gets a new screenshot
Offering a small new update for the game, ConcernedApe tweeted out a new screenshot. While there’s not much to see in this image, it’s a nice update that the project is moving forward if nothing else. When asked how development is going, ConcernedApe replied:
“The progress is pretty good, but it takes a long time to make a game, and I’m doing it entirely from scratch (except for a very rare reuse of something from Stardew [Valley]if that makes sense). Still in the middle of a long grind.”

Speaking in an interview with VGKami, Barone revealed that Haunted Chocolatier brings back romantic relationships.
