farm together

#1 Post by C_S » Fri May 17, 2019 4:00 pm

I'm a little embarrassed about this, it's a cutesy, cartoony game. Was in the mood for something different and I like farm games. Been playing about 4 days straight... 8-)

https://store.steampowered.com/app/6739 ... _Together/

I play single player but other ppl can visit. I have it set so visitors can only harvest so they won't spend all my money. I work on other's farms sometimes b/c it gives a xp boost. There's motive to visit other farms to lend a hand. Gameplay example: you grow apple, smash apple, make jam, sell different stages. Seems like 100 things to grow and 50 diff animals and fish. There's a lot of content to unlock.

It's so danged satisfying for some reason. Very relaxing.

I'm a millionaire 8-)

All the farms I visit are laid out decoratively. They look really nice but I cringe at the inefficiency.

Ballsitch GMO farm is laid out in perfect squares w/ fuel available when needed, and every square inch carefully planned to be profitable.

I have built a nice welcome area for ppl who visit. Got BBQ going on and a campfire. Some of the paper hanging things that glow at night. It's a nice environment.

But this is a working farm. Not much time to putz around w/ guests. Got to get my apples harvested, and the critters have to keep fed. chop chop

I feed the world basically 8-)

I still play this game every day. Time passes. Plant a crop that takes 1 day to grow it takes 1 day to grow in real time (24 hours). Other crops take 15 mins. Then there's animals and flowers and fish farms. Eventually build a house, then go inside w/ all other sorts of things to do. This game is fantastic. I've probably unlocked a tenth of what there is. There is a crapload to do.

After about a week -I started over on 'hard' mode b/c it gives flat terrain. For a new player go on easy mode w/ tutorial - but as soon as possible switch to hard mode for the flat terrain. The player level progress stays the same but the farm starts over.

Some things that aren't clear: roads are suggested as decoration. Roads are not just 'decoration' - you travel faster on them no matter what. So grid everything w/ roads to haul ass around.

W/ flat terrain I'm able to plan and grid. I constantly don't have enough money to build/plant everything I want, but that's the gameplay. There are cheap crops to plant for a 15 min turnover. But the game grants bonus for planting or buying fish/critters, it encourages expansion. Its a fun game to have running in the background.

Anyway like I said this game is corney, prolly not anyone here's 'cup of tea' but it has some depth and planning, I really enjoy it. I give this danged thing 2 thumbs way up.

Have you suffered from any of the ‘natural’ calamities (drought, hail, locusts, etc.) that farmers are subject to?

naw u just have to plant some things in season. The game doesn't arbitrarily punish the player. It's a good time.

I still play this.

Everyone's different, for me this game hits a spot. I've restarted 3 times now. When the player restarts everything is turned in all currencies. So nothing is lost. You get back all ur money, ribbons, tickets, diamonds. The houses built are still there and can always be repositioned. There is no loss of time or money to start over. Which is nice b/c I figure out better ways to lay out the farm. The player is never punished. This is just a fun, relaxing game. At least I think so.

I've played enough that I'm starting to understand how to make everything efficient, particularly the hired help. Things need to be planned and laid out proficiently.

Whatever. I enjoy the game. I give it 2 thumbs way up. Prolly not for everyone. I really like it.

I'd recommend to start on "hard level, flat terrain". And just build whatever, you'll see how it works, then just start over if things aren't going to plan. It's built for relaxing fun, the player is never punished. Progress is always being made even if u fuck up a little bit.
