Stardew Valley Diverse Characters Mod
I think Stardew Valley is a fantastic game but if there’s one thing about it that’s bothered me since the beginning, it’s the fact that it’s rather whitewashed. Demetrius and his daughter Maru are the only non-white people in the game and that always seemed wrong to me.
Luckily, a friend who also plays the game pointed out to me a mod that aims to make the characters more diverse. It’s still a work in progress since the creator, notsnuffie, wants to eventually redo all of the characters, but the ones that have been done so far are simply amazing!
There’s not just a diversity in race but also in other aspects. Currently there’s just a MtF Penny but there are plans for a FtM character, a disabled character, a drag queen, and to make Clint into a butch lesbian. I’m really excited to see all of those.
The mod is available as a single download or you can pick and choose which characters you’d like to replace. I got all of them, although I’ve having a hard time deciding whether to use Albino Demetrius or not. Definitely going with the dreadlock cuffs on Elliott though.
