Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone Teases New Title Haunted Chocolatier

Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone, the creator of the smash-hit indie farming sim Stardew Valley, has just released a new teaser image for his upcoming game Haunted Chocolatier. The game was announced with a gameplay trailer in 2021 and is eagerly anticipated by fans worldwide. Although no release date has been set yet, this new image gives us an exciting sneak peek of what to expect from this spooky title.

ConcernedApe's previous success story Stardew Valley launched in 2016 after five years of development as a solo project. It quickly gained popularity on multiple platforms and sold over 20 million copies as of May 2022. Metacritic scores remain high at 87/100 due to its engaging storyline, vibrant visuals, and expansive content that keeps players hooked for hours.

Haunted Chocolatier looks no less ambitious than Stardew Valley – it promises to be bigger and better with its creepy ghosts and supernatural elements hidden within the captivating chocolates it centers around. Players will take control of one such chocolatier as they explore the secrets behind the sweets while trying their best not to get lost!

Haunted Chocolatier is set in a town where humans and ghosts coexist peacefully. Players are tasked with running their confectionery shop; however, they must also deal with some spooky customers who may demand unusual orders! While details on gameplay remain scarce for now, the teaser image does show off some of the candies that players will be able to create. These include everything from classic chocolate bars to more outrageous flavors, such as spaghetti-flavored gummies and marshmallows filled with bugs! Despite its lighthearted tone, Haunted Chocolatier could offer plenty of challenges, too – after all, we have Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone at the helm!

The teaser image shows off some tantalizing details about this mysterious world – a ghostly figure resting atop stacks of chocolate boxes while gazing out into an unknown realm; bright yellow lights illuminating a hallway full of delicious treats; an ominous door leading down into a darkness filled with suspense…the possibilities are endless! All these clues indicate much more lurking beneath our protagonists' seemingly innocent profession than meets the eye.


Despite not having an official release date yet, Haunted Chocolatier already looks set to become another hit title from Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone thanks to its good visuals and intriguing storyline hinted at in its teaser image reveal. Fans can certainly look forward to experiencing something truly unique when this sweet adventure finally comes out – we'll have to wait until then!
