Stardew Valley sees you moving from the big city to your (recently inherited) grandfather's old, run-down farm in sleepy Pelican Town.

That's right, one of the most addicting games of the past few years will now be available to play on both your iPhone and iPad, so good luck getting anything done.

The developer behind Stardew Valley, the hit indie farming sim, this week announced the game was coming to mobile devices.

The mobile version will offer players the full game, which is nearly identical to the PC version. "The main difference is that it has been rebuilt for touch-screen gameplay on iOS (new UI, menu systems and controls)". Well, at least iOS users will since the Android version of the game isn't finished yet.

It gets better. Not only will the game cost a very reasonable $7.99, but it will include all of the version 1.3 single-player content.

There is some bad news though: it will launch on iOS first on October 24, but there's no word of an Android release date just yet. Unfortunately, mod support and multiplayer content isn't available in the mobile version.

Barone also says iOS players can transfer their PC saves to mobile via iTunes - hopefully Android players can transfer their saves too.

Pre-orders for Stardew Valley mobile will go live today on the App Store, and it will run you £7.99/$7.99/€8.99. It will feature no additional in-app purchasing and will be released on October 24.

What is unexpected, however, is that Barone specifies that PC gamers can import their save files to the iOS version of the game.
