Reviews

“There’s something for everyone in this game, whether you enjoy the farming, diner, or tower-defense genre. As such, “Farm for your Life” is the type of game that I’d be hard-pressed not to recommend.”
8/10 – Dad's Gaming Addiction

About This Game

Your community was taken down by a heavy storm which caused an apocalypse and unleashed the living dead. Together with the other survivors, it is your task to rebuild and to allow that sustainable life can still be assured. Cultivate your farm and manage your restaurant to provide food and deal with all the zombies.

It’s a strange Time Management Game. The light-hearted style of a casual game collides with elements, which are usually only seen in horror genres. Discover the contrast, which takes both genres for a wild ride.

Ok, my first review ever. The reason I bought this game was because I was going through one of those "I have hundreds of games but nothing to play" phases on my day off. It honestly took me by surprise, and I quickly got addicted.

Farm for your Life seems to have been put together by ideas from other games.
-You have the farming aspect which is similar to that of Harvest moon and runic frontier. The farming is the bread and butter of the game, as you can imagine by taking a look at the title. You have some land, you clear it, plow it, barter for seeds, sow them, water them, and occassionally sprinkle some fertilizer to keep the plants from dying.

-You have your restaurant, which is really the feature that caught me. You serve dishes made with your produce at the restaurant. Instead of getting paid in game currency or something, you barter with your clients and can actually choose what you want from their inventory (which is pretty awesome when you desperately need more of a specific supply). As you expand your farm, you can upgrade your restaurant to accommodate more people and expand the range of dishes you serve. Also, to learn any dish, you must first purchase it from the peddler, go to the oven, and play fruit ninja with the ingredients. The better you do, the faster you can cook that particular dish.

-You then have zombies. When night falls, zombies pop out from paths at the edge of the map and walk ever slowly towards your farm and restaurant to destroy it. Like Plants vs Zombies, you will end up using your crops to kill them by throwing it at them. You can also use items you bartered for in your restaurant to create defensive turrets like a corn cannon to cover one side of the map while you fight in the other.

This all seems like a lot to do, and it is, specially when your farm and restaurant are heavily upgraded. But you recieve NPC help in exchange for shelter and a daily meal. They pop up as you expand.

The story overall was decent, but not much different than endless. It could use a few more tweeks.

I would give the game a 9/10. With a little more indepth story and some more content, it would be perfect.

(I bought this 7 months ago on their site before the Steam release, don't let my logged play time fool you!)

During the day there is a sort of Tycoon-style farming game while you still maintain a restruant a la Cooking Mama and buy supplies to keep your restruant ahead of demand. To optimize recepies you can play a sort of Fruit Ninja-style minigame At night you go solo against zombies with nothing but veggie-powered defenses and your throwing arm to protect yourself.

After you get enough employees you can start exploring the woods for some helpful items and additional building materials. You might even argue in favor of this game being compared to Animal Crossing or The Sims in some aspects, though those games are not as goal-oriented.

When you've completed the campaign's tutorial, if you find the story boring or short you can switch to Endless Mode. Arguably the more enjoyable mode.

The depth of this game will sneak up on you.
