Stardew Valley Player Discovers Rare Interaction with Linus
A unique situation involving the popular Stardew Valley figure, Linus, has been recently discovered by a player. This surprise has delighted many fans and is a testament to the level of detail included in the game.
Linus, a loner who lives just north of Robin’s house in Stardew Valley , can become a friend of the player’s after a while of getting to know them. This is in stark contrast to how some of the townsfolk act, which is highlighted in this distinct scene. Despite his past experiences, he can still be won over with some patience and understanding.
A fan of Stardew Valley created a real-life replica of Fiddlehead Risotto, as reported here.
In a post to the Stardew Valley subreddit, Grouchy-Moment6246 shared a screenshot of their character rummaging through a trash can with Linus standing nearby. Unlike the other NPCs, who would be disgusted and suffer a loss of friendship points, Linus was seemingly charmed and asked if the player had found any treasures. The original post can be found here.
A bond cutscene between Linus and Gus’ saloon presents a fitting character sketch. Gus is generous in sharing food, while Linus is content to salvage what would otherwise be considered waste. Impressive as it is, this touching moment is only accessible once a year, and was thoughtfully included by ConcernedApe, the game’s single developer.
On any given day, the player may observe Linus wandering around, but unlike other NPCs, he does not stray from his usual area outside of cutscenes. The only exception to this is during the Stardew Valley Night Market, when he traverses the mountains and proceeds south to the docks to join the festivities. Since there are no garbage cans in the vicinity of his usual stomping grounds, this offers the only opportunity to experience this sequence. It is commendable that the developer has thought to include this detail, as there is no incentive to go through the trash on this particular day.
One-person-developed Stardew Valley has stunned its players with its intricate design, and with the latest 1.6 update in the works, there may be more delightful surprises to come. Content updates continually add even more secrets to the game.
Stardew Valley is accessible on a variety of platforms, such as Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
