After the huge success of Stardew Valley, developer Eric ‘ConcernedApe’ Barone is now turning his attention to his next project called Haunted Chocolatier. The title unusually combines ghost stories with chocolate and already looks very interesting.
In a new live stream, Barone shows off some songs that many Stardew Valley fans should know about. But surprisingly, he also previews a song from his new project, revealing an important detail about Haunted Chocolatier.
Haunted Chocolatier gets boss fights
What is he making fun of? With the song, Barone reveals that there will be boss fights in the Haunted Chocolatier. The developer has already promised in the past that a more complex combat system than in Stardew Valley will await us in the new game.
We can find out what the song sounds like starting at 1:37:12 in Reason’s live stream:

What does the song reveal? The buzzing and buzzing soundtrack already gives an idea: this boss opponent will be a bee. Barone plays the wonderful sound in full and reveals towards the end that he’ll probably let the song play on a loop. However, he also admits that most of the Sons of Haunted Chocolatier play lower sounds.
In the chat you will be asked if it is a “B-Boss” and if there will be an “A-Boss” as a result or if it is really a “Bee-Boss”, ie a boss of bees. Barone replays the hum at the beginning of the song as a track. Along with the name “beeboss” it can be concluded that the boss’s opponent is actually a bee.
So that there is not only something for the ears, here you can see the following trailer:

That’s what Haunted Chocolatier is all about
In Haunted Chocolatier we slip into the role of a chocolatier who runs his chocolate shop in a haunted castle. Clients include not only humans, but also all kinds of ghosts.
In order to make the chocolate for our store, we need to collect the right ingredients. We find this in a world that we can enter through a portal in the castle. So we have to collect berries and defeat opponents to get valuable resources.
Unlike Stardew Valley, the combat system plays a bigger role. You can read more about this in the following article:

If the gameplay of Stardew Valley hasn’t changed much, it will probably be possible to find the love of your life again in Haunted Chocolatier. The life of the city itself and the daily routine are guaranteed to play a role.
When is Haunted Chocolatier coming out? The game has been in development since 2020 and is still in the early stages of development. That’s why Barone can’t give an exact release date yet. Haunted Chocolatier is in development for PC, but will continue for other platforms.
What do you think of the wonderful bee sound? Are you waiting for Haunted Chocolatier bosses?
