Stardew Valley Can Be Played On A Smartwatch With Surprising Good Quality




Stardew Valley is an indie star. A phenomenon that has inspired countless amateur and semi-pro game developers the world over. Developed by Eric 'ConcernedApe' Barone, the incredibly popular simulation RPG is available on a legion of platforms including PC, Xbox, PS4, Nintendo Switch, MacOS, iOS, and Android.

While the game is playable on a bunch of platforms, not many, one hazards to guess, would have played the game that can last forever on a smartwatch. But that's exactly what one player is doing. On the r/AndroidGaming subreddit, one gamer has managed to put Stardew Valley on their Android Lemfo LEM15 smartwatch. No, this isn't wallpaper or a smart watchface, but the actual game. And it looks like it runs surprisingly well.

A bit about this particular smartwatch, since it may not be as well known as your Samsung Galaxy Watch, Google Pixel Watch, or the industry-leading Apple Watch (which is not an Android watch, of course). For a smartwatch, the Lemfo LEM15 is pretty beefy. It comes with an MTK 6762 eight-core chip, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB storage. So it's no slouch in the specs department, and as can be seen in the video below, it looks like it runs Stardew Valley without a hitch.

The OP says it is "really portable" in a jokey reply to a comment in the thread and that the Lemfo smartwatch is also capable of running a PSP emulator. While there might be doubts as to whether the watch can do this, in reviews of the LEM15 it's been tested that it can run the likes of PUBG Mobile and COD Mobile and that the experience of playing car Games on it was "great". However, obviously one of the biggest drawbacks to gaming on the watch is the limited screen size.

For the record the LEM15 has a 1.6-inch screen, which is pretty small, but it does have a decent resolution and good colour contrast, which does mean Stardew Valley pops on the admittedly small screen. Meanwhile, the snazzy looking controller that the OP is using to play the Game drew multiple admiring comments. Just FYI, it is the 8BitDo Zero 2 — a keychain-sized bluetooth controller.

As for gaming on Android smartwatches, there are numerous YouTube guides on it, from the best titles for the device, to hacks and tricks. We'll let you discover those should this neat example pique your interest. Because carrying around Stardew Valley like this certainly has a particular charm.
