NEWS & UPDATES
Leaving your homeland behind aboard a sterling, seafaring vessel gifted to you by your brother, you set out on the open sea with but one goal: to find your true purpose in life.
Fate had other plans, however. A vicious storm turns your brother’s gift into nothing but fragmented flotsam, and soon you’re washed ashore on the beaches of Softshoal Island.
The wrecking of your beloved boat was far from fortunate, but landing on Softshoal Island may have been a blessing in disguise. You’re soon given a plot of land and a chance at a new start. Fate is quite the mysterious beast!
As you begin to nurture your plot, uncover great mysteries, and meet the citizens of the island, you’ll experience the everlasting magnificence of your new home first-hand--all while you rekindle the memories from your past that caused you to embark on this grand, exciting adventure in the first place. You never would have guessed that finding your purpose in life was just a shipwreck away...
In Farm Folks, live your life as you see fit--there are so many experiences to be had!
Farm Folks is both a fulfilling role-playing game and a charming farming simulator, gifting you the tools and abilities you need to create and tend your very own piece of paradise. Working the land and rearing animals is a bunch of fun, but there is so much more on offer here! Let’s run through what you can expect:
It wouldn’t be much of a farming simulator without farming, would it? Farm Folks features the time-tested farming mechanic in which players can purchase or forage seeds and begin to grow their farm into a bountiful and rewarding resource.
Once the soil is tilled and the seeds are nestled firmly into the ground, it’s time for some TLC--Tender Loving Care. You’ll water your plants daily, either by hand or through other means, until each crop has reached its maturation and it’s ready for harvest. Harvesting your hard-earned bounty can reward you in many ways, but if you’re focusing on that bottom line, then it’s time to put some coin in your purse.
After loading your haul onto your trusty mount, you’ll head into town and sell your goods to the island’s exporters. As your purse grows fatter and fatter, the farming process can be enhanced and streamlined until you’re running the island’s most booming farm.
Soon you’ll be wondering if it’s time to invest in one of those fancy mainland automobiles....or maybe someone who can help out around the farm…
Softshoal Island’s farmland is so very fertile because of the island’s local animal population and the generations they’ve spent grazing every acre of the luscious landscape. Today, farmers can continue to reap the rewards of Softshoal’s four-legged (and two-legged!) friends by giving them homes on your property.
The local forester is also a great carpenter, and he’ll make any kind of coop or stable that’s available--for a price, of course. Once the structure is built, you’ll need to stop by the nearby animal breeder to purchase some healthy livestock! Before you know it, you’ll be in the ranching business. Milk, eggs, and wool, oh my!
Nurture and care is key to making sure your livestock is producing worthwhile products. The happier your animal companions are, the higher the quality of their yield! Make sure you’ve got your brushes and special feed handy!
Every season brings with it a great calendar of holidays that are perfect cause for celebration. You’ll find the townsfolk have a festival for nearly every one of those occasions. Make sure you’re there!

Risks and challenges
There are inherent risks in any given project. We have been working hard on this game for years, and that isn’t going to change anytime soon, but unforeseen problems do arise. However, we are confident in our ability to think ahead, and that includes a few contingency plans for if things go a little awry. The team is more than prepared to take this project through to the very end. Like the mail delivery service of old, come rain, snow, or any other disaster, we are ready to trudge on through it all.
However, the future is still as mysterious as ever, but that is why we will always keep you updated about what we’re doing, where the project is going, and occasionally what we ate for lunch (hopefully not dry noodles and fridge fungus. That will probably be the first sign that things aren’t going well).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
