The Farming GameÂ® Software Edition for Mac and PC
Since 1979, more than 350,000 copies of The Farming GameÂ® board game ("The Game Invented on the Seat of a Tractor") have been sold to people around the world. Our family was no exception - we played this a lot growing up, and since my brother was working on a game design degree, we figured why not contact The Weekend Farmer Co. and ask them if they needed someone to do a software version? As it so happened, they did, since the last successful attempt had been for Windows 3.1, so my brother spent the next couple years in between consulting jobs putting together The Farming Game in full 3D. And now it's finally available!
* Play with up to six "weekend farmers" and/or computer AI's
* Personalize your farm in full 3D, with placement control over everything you buy
* Dozens of animations for everything from harvests to Farmer's Fate (watch out for volcanic eruptions!)
* Full achievement system
* Try out new buildings and crop bonuses in Enhanced mode
* Perfect for any child with basic math and reading skills.
The board game is used in over 2,000 schools and extensively by homeschoolers, since it's considered a pretty accurate portrayal of farming. Our Mac and PC version expands on this theme, and we will be producing some free educational materials to go with it in the near future. For now, the game is on sale at 20% off (this is likely to drop to 10% within the next week or so) and available for immediate download upon purchase:
We have added a bunch of features since I originally posted this. Board game mode coming soon, probably iPad, and we already have Linux support. We also have flyers with a special discount going into the current printing of the board game, so expect to start seeing those in copies on shelves around September if you happen to want to buy both.
