As written in farm life sims bylaws, Stardew Valley begins with the way many people do: with your character inheriting a piece of land from his late relatives. In Stardew, your kind grandfather has a quick goodbye to the deathbed, where he conveys his last wishes for taking possession of the family farm. Enter the modders, who years ago took Grandpa’s pity and gave him a better bed. Suddenly, the public is obsessed with the most outrageous death possible for Grandpa.
According to Gamesradar, modder Stardew on the game’s subreddit has put together some new mods in the self – declared “dying grandpa revival”. Admittedly, there’s an influx of new grandfather death scenes, but I’m not sure there’s a revival of the artistic nomenclature that I would go for. These grandparents survive between surrealism and post-modernism.
Here are all the dying grandpa modifications, ordered chronologically and by increasing poverty measures:

At least in the last one, Grandpa is not really dead. He’s probably still dead for the rest of the game, since his grave is on the farm plot and all. It’s just a moment of relief for the old man.
The Beepsignal modder (of Grandpa’s death from Family Guy) was also kind enough to provide a download of the intro without Grandpa so that other modders can use it as a template for their own lore. Hit the streets and experience Grandpa with even higher levels of ignorance as he enters the afterlife, boys.
