ConcernedApe (Eric Barone) is the lead developer of Stardew Valley. He programmed the entire game (except multiplayer networking in 1.3) and created all art, sound effects, and music. He currently resides in Seattle, Washington. See Stardew Valley for more info about the game development.

In early 2019, ConcernedApe hired a small development team to continue updating the game.



  • Setting your favorite thing when starting the game to "ConcernedApe" will trigger special dialogue upon consumption of a Stardrop.
  • When launching Stardew Valley, if the player clicks on ConcernedApe's face, he will open his eyes and a 'splat' or honk sound will play.
