About


In Ferman, you get to play these merchants  and have a chance to be the one to gain Sultan’s favor. He will task you  to repair the existing infrastructure, construct new buildings and help  those in need. Manage your resources and complete these Quests to get  Coins, but be careful! Fermans have the potential to alter the course of  the game significantly.

Ferman is a fast-paced economic strategy game with worker placement  elements for 3-6 players .The game takes around 30-60 minutes to  complete. Aim of the game is to be the first one to get 11 Coins. Coins  will primarily be earned through quests, which will require resources  such as Silk and Stone. Players will need to compete amongst themselves  to gather such resources, considering their supply is limited and they  have one action per turn. Excess resources can be traded at the Docks,  or could be turned into Coins at the Grand Bazaar.

Heed the call of Sultan, and be the glorious merchant that restores Constantinople to new heights!

Who are we?

We are a team of gamers united by our passion. We started designing games as a hobby a couple years ago. In order to turn our hobby to a full time job we founded Barely Functioning Studios in 2018. We are finally ready to present to you our first game. With your help and support we hope to achieve our dream.

We have a lot more projects on the way. So even if Ferman isn’t your cup of tea you keep an eye out for us.

Thank you!

You are helping us bringing this game to life and achieving our dream. Thank you all for being with us.

Even if you can’t back us, telling friends or sharing on a social media platform really helps us too.

Risks and challenges

We are a newly founded team, but every one of us has experiences and strengths that complement others.

We made all the necessary arrangements for production and shipping. We are using a local printing house in Istanbul, so that we could be there to oversee every step of the production.

We are confident and prepared to fulfill the campaign when it reaches the goal. But we have backup producers for our backup producers, so you can be sure we are prepared for any challenge we may have.

There is always the possibility of unforeseen issues that can arise at any step of the process. We will do everything we can in order to deal with those issues and we will be completely transparent about any obstacles and problems we may face.

With your help, we can have the funds to print the game, deal with any obstacles, and make sure you are delivered a quality product.
