A farm with many amenities and cooler animals takes time investment to build
It has a contained story, technically you could play forever but why would you?? I'm putting Yes but mean Yes (No). Like would you consider minecraft to be an infinite treadmill? thats like Stardew
Skills, quests, earning money, caring for animals/farm/npc relationship gauges, etc. You are always chasing a half dozen things and even if you like some of them you almost certainly will not enjoy or be good at all of them, making some degree of the game a frustrating slog.
Technically speaking most if not all of the major questlines and town storyline can be finished, but the game does not end and the basic gameplay loop always remains.
There is technically an ability to save mid-day instead of when the in-game day ends, but the state you return to is not entirely accurate to what you did before leaving, encouraging finishing out the remainder of the day cycle rather than utilize quicksaves.
In more recent updates there are special items and quests you can only access by increasing your 'Perfection' rating aka moving closer to 100% complete.
the only way to save your progress in this game is by going to sleep at any time and progressing to the next day. 6am-12am in game lasts about 12 minutes, so you can only really save your progress every 12 minutes
in a way? you can have a multiplayer world with others, but you can't join anyone else's world without communicating between yourselves first
