Family Farm

Family Farm

Family Farm is an innovative and fun tycoon game in the setting of 19th century farmsteads. It's a simulation of a farmstead experienced in stories which span a generation. Clicking cows won't earn you any cash! You control characters with RPG-like attributes, skills and needs. Keep them fed, develop their skills, upgrade house to accommodate a bigger family and grow their land in to a Family Farm!

The game interface presents the farm in a god view with ability to zoom in and out. The game world is tile-based, so you can easily plan fields, corrals, orchards and other game objects.

Timing of seasons is limited and activities take place in real-time, so you have to manage your workers efficiently. You have to cook meals for them and watch out for fatigue otherwise morale goes down. Family members improve in skills which make them faster and increases chances of critical success (ie. multiplying yields). Yields are determined by properties of crops in relation to soil fertility, weather and additional work.

A workforce can be hired, but it is costly, but if you upgrade the house enough, perhaps a new baby will be born. As your family grows you can expand your farm and focus on long-term investments such as livestock or orchards.
