Hats on Cats and DogsFarm pets will soon have more flair than just being cute. A tweet from the developer includes an image of cats and dogs wearing hats. Terraria producer Cenx is also excited about this feature and jokingly bargained with ConcernedApe for information. If the developer agreed, he would gain information about the release date for Terraria 1.4.5.
Wild Horseradish JuiceOn October 21, 2023, ConcernedApe posted a cryptic tweet with an image of a new consumable item called the Wild Horseradish Juice. But the developer didn’t say anything about the image other than the word “yum.” However, this post may suggest that Update 1.6 will bring more artisanal goods to the game and not only this juice. The upcoming patch may also let players turn Wild Horseradish into other high-value items.
Mysterious Qi FruitOne of ConcernedApe’s recent teases about Stardew Valley Update 1.6 is an image of a mysterious fruit donning a pair of sunglasses. Many fans recognized the food item as a Qi Fruit, and it only appears during Mr. Qi’s “Qi’s Crop” quest. However, the developer didn’t elaborate on why he posted this image. Still, it could mean that players might soon be able to plant Qi Fruit on their farms.
