For as long as games have let you get married, players have wanted to break the limits of the traditional institution – whether as a nod toward inclusivity for non-monogamous relationships or simply as way for you to star in your own harem anime. A Stardew Valley modder has finally made those dreams come true.
Simply titled Polygamy, bwdy’s mod lets you marry every single eligible NPC in the game. It’s a full replacement for the existing marriage system, and as such it’s still a bit touchy – which is why this release is noted as “an early test build.” Once you’ve gotten hitched multiple times, the mod cycles through a “primary” spouse each day with normal AI, while the others simply wander around the farm.
It’s a bit limited in its current form, but it answers a long-standing request for polyamory in the Stardew Valley community. The vanilla game has generally been committed to monogamy, to the point at which one of the game’s updates added a scene when all your beaus would get mad if you’re dating multiple options.
