Farming Simulator

by spacechase0 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Got pretty far, but decided against finishing up for various reasons. The main thing that's missing is more crops (and maybe seasons).

I was going to try to fit it into the theme, but like I said, I decided not to completely finish. :P

I probably didn't even spent a little less than 10 hours on the game, because I was out of town.

Mouse wheel or Up/Down arrows change the selected tool.
Left clicking uses the current tool, right clicking sells plants (if they are grown).
O decreases the time rate, P increases it. L sets it to the default.

It really isn't that accurate. It's just a quick clone off of Harvest Moon (minus characters... and everything else).

Interesting, but could use a little more elaboration. You probably know this. :-)

Being able to fast-forward time would also be handy.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention the controls. :P I've already added that.

You can hold O to decrease the time rate, and P to increase it. L sets it to the default.

It's not bad, but it could use a little more features added to it. Also selling the plants wasn't working for me. Unless I'm doing it wrong.

My father is a farmer so I had to try this. I didn't have much luck though. Hope you are around for the full 48 next time, it's a different idea!

I played it, but it was not very clear about what I should do.

xBlinkedx: Make sure they're fully grown (top row in the screenshot). If not, I'm not sure what the problem would be.

Sanguine: Yeah, it probably could use some more instructions next time. :P

Looks pretty cool - can we have a Mac version?

I actually developed it on a Mac. :P It's up now.

Like the farming vibes and the lack of farmville/zynga evilness! It was cute and works pretty well so you should do more if you liked making this

This reminded me of Zynga's farmville.

Very unoriginal farming game. But well implemented! The innovation wasn't really there but its still a fun type of game.

I've never been original. :)

Maybe you could add variation to the speed of growth for the plants? Anyway, it was well implemented, though being able to slow time (and the default time itself) made the game far too easy to manage a full farm.

Intriguing but the lack of variety and win conditions meant it got a little boring quite quickly. Solid basis for development here though.

I don't get it, sorry :(

Good basis for a game, though it definitely needs a little more variety/ a win condition (I have a hankering for a variety of vegetation).

I couldn't sell plants either :-(
