Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone has been hard at work creating another new and free update to his game, Stardew Valley. The farming simulator is getting closer to Version 1.5, and thanks to a tease from Barone, we can now speculate what’s so special about Willy’s newly arranged fishing shop.


Comparing Version 1.5’s layout to the current version, there’s going to be a brand new door in Willy’s shop. What lies behind it is the question! Is this his bedroom/living quarters? Is he going to be available to woo and marry, or is this leading to a boat we can commandeer? Nothing is certain, but the fan theories are fun to read.

The other notable tease is that the “update adds a significant new piece of end-game content and much more!” Perhaps our farming, exploring, mining, and monster hunting and slaying adventures aren’t over just yet. We’ll just have to wait for another tease and when Barone is ready to officially release Version 1.5.
