Reviews

“If sitting down for short spurts of co-op puzzle solving and collective yelling at the screen is what you need, march right up to this trough and start munching away.”
4/5 – Co-Optimus

“Space Farmers is bright and colorful and really adds a cheery touch to everything, even your demise due to an ill-timed potato grenade detonation”
8.5/10 – Shoost

“At one point, you use a flare gun to ignite cow farts to kill robots. Enticed? We sure were!”

About This Game

This is a Double Pack - you'll get 2 copies so you can give one to a friend.


Space Farmers is a co-op game only and has no single player mode.

Grab a friend, grab a gadget, grab a gun and get ready. Space Farmers is the most fun you'll ever have in a co-op game.

You're trapped on an alien space station and forced to share your secret British agriculture secrets. With no means of escape or tea making facilities this is all very uncivilized!

Luckily a hoard of hungry robots are attacking the station and your captors have vanished. Stopping only to pick up an Energy Shotgun and a Pie-O-Matic you begin your quest for freedom!

In Space Farmers you and a friend will encounter gadgets, guns, puzzles, pigs, a horde of killer robots and more. This one of a kind co-operative action adventure will make you laugh, cry and bring the human race together.

Every Type Of Co-Op

Space Farmers supports Online (peer to peer), Local Lan and Split Screen Co-Op. Don't forget that it's a double pack so you'll be able to give a copy to a friend and start playing right away!

Game is by nature very linear, ther is a limited number of actual challenges and the only variance in the game is the order in which you perform them. Controls are also clunky and not well explained.

Achievement Farmers - Pink Monkey 2k16

Note: I've idled for cards for 3,6 hours. My actual playtime is 3,4 hours as 0,5 were wasted in waiting for a game to start and 0,4 in tries to host a server.

Pros :
▲ I found the game cute and funny. A good example of that is when my friend asked "What does a pig-shaped block have to do with farming?". 10/10 Personally I had a great time killing aforementioned co-op buddy completing the levels.
▲ Good amount of levels that have different difficulty - from easy to hard. Each game contains 5. First 2 games (i.e. 10 levels) are random, after that you can select them, which is good if you're going for achievements. The levels require teamwork to complete so make sure you don't lag as I did and my buddy said (after I've died) that I wasn't on the platform when I was there.
▲ Multiple hats, characters, hats, weapons, hats.
▲ Trading cards.
▲ Achievements. Easy 100% (3,4 hours in my case) but requires multiplayer. Achievement Farmers GO!

Cons :
▼ Spent 0,5 hours trying to join a game. Waiting simulator at it's finest.
▼ Spent 0,4 more hours trying to host a game. I was the host but my buddy couldn't get "Survivors" achievement after we completed a game without dying. Odd.
▼ The soundtrack that I heard while waiting for a game to start is best described with these lyrics - "Like a broken record, it's repeating / Over and over (and over)". It's also kind of short. That's what she said.

Neutral points :
■ You can get all achievements without completing all the levels.
■ 1 or 2 of the achievements can't be unlocked by the host so you should switch roles with your buddy. Normally that shouldn't be a problem but in my case I might need to reset my router to be able to host a game.

Conclusion :
At time of writing this review the game is 85% off. For this price it's a must-buy. So if you can get it cheap and happen to have a buddy to play with for(n)ever alone - go for it.

Really fun co-op puzzle game with great soundtracks. Problem is that your character moves slow, and when either you or your friend died you start from check points(results in wasting a lot of time just to run back to where you died).

6/10

At 10 5 euro* price, this game is too unpolished
* - buying gives you another copy, so it's 10 euro for 2 copies...

Let me start with beginning - I could not find my friend on list inside game... (that's a bug, that is still there, you can check in discussions); friend had to invite me, to make it work.
Character movement is kind of slow. And the angle from which we see the world favors person down there... I dislike it.
There is no info inside game how to control - that bothers me along with no graphic options, these things you set before the game, in classic Unity launcher.

Doesn't save progress [?].
Link inside game's main menu is not "active" (doesn't react nor open web browser)... so they really want me to type it manually?

One of the best coop games I have played ever. I have been playing this since alpha and it just gets better and better.

Now you get to fulfil your dreams of escaping alien abduction, battle your way through multiple levels of the alien spaceship to escape using equipment you find on the way such as Potato Launcer, Gravity Gloves, Lazers, Pitchforks and much much more.

+ Customisable Characters, Characters and hats
+ 20 levels , 5 played per game (More coming soon)
+ Fantastic gadgets and equipment
+ Fun cartoon style graphics
+ Replayability as different levels are chosen each playthrough
+ TURNIPS!!!!
+ Regular updates and feedback from the developers
+ 2 copies of game included in price so you and friend can jump straight into the action.

- No negatives from my point of view :)

Before you say anything about my playtime, I played this game a few hours before it was released on steam through Desura.

If you want to have a blast, enjoy the engaging music and fun gameplay then Space Farmers is really for you. It is a Co-Op game so invite a friend. As the developers said: you pay for 2 copies of the game. One for you and one for your most trusted ( or troll ) friend. You are in for a blast. Jetpacks, cookie machines, dinossaurs, bulls, massive grinders trying to mince you into pieces, cows that if "stimulated" will turn their bums into a incinerator... and much much more.

Its been a while since I had so much fun. You can "troll" and be "trolled" not only by your friend...but also by the game. Believe me when I say you that the game can "troll" you on the most particular and awesome ways.

What can I say? I love it and everytime I log in I am in a great gaming session.

My fiancee won two copies of this, one for herself and one for me, in a giveaway. We figured since it was a free game, we'd give it a shot.
Going in to it, I didn't expect much at all. I didn't think it would be a good or fun game. I thought the look was ugly, the gameplay was gonna be bad, it'd be something I'd play for maybe ten minutes then quit.
But then I played a few levels, and I really enjoyed it.
Yeah, the gameplay isn't much. It's simple puzzles with a simplistic design. But that doesn't mean it isn't fun!
It's actually pretty cute, I think.
I've wasted about 3 hours of my time on this game already, without stopping. So I mean, it must not be that bad, right?

So over all, I'd give this a 7/10.

Online co-op or split screen local co-op game with up to around 30 possible characters to play as square block figures. Has a total of around 25 co-op maps, a set of 5 different survival co-op challenges and 1 singleplayer survival challenge map. Depending on connection with co-op partner, each level has sufficient variety and tests the movement, puzzle-solving skill and teamwork in you and your co-op partner. Achievements are relatively easy to get with a decent co-op partner. The singleplayer map is also relatively easy to finish and unlock achievement and playable characters.

Among the cons, there is one very difficult level that is much harder than the rest, and online connection can be troublesome sometimes as the Steam game invite function does not always register in the other person's game.

Overall, I would recommend this game only if you have a friend or family member who can play the game online or local co-op with you and only when the game is at discount as it takes less than 10 hours to finish all maps and unlock all possible playable characters and character accessories.

Easily one of the best Co-Op games I had ever played, I find nothing is better than dashing around a spaceship drunk, holding a pig, and listening to some magnificent banjo music!

This game has some pretty good ideas and some parts of it are fun, but unfortunately the implementation is very poor. The main thing that makes a lot of it not fun to play is the repetitiveness. Many of the levels have the same pattern: a super easy part in the beginning of the level (to get you used to the mechanics?) and then a harder part you need trial-
and-error/good RNG to solve. So then you end up repeating the easy part over and over while trying to figure out the hard part once.

The repetition wouldn't be so bad if your character wasn't so slow. It's like your character is walking in molassas. The default walking speed should be at least twice as fast as it is now, with a toggle key to make your character slower if it's needed for precise movement.

The other big annoying issue is that the hard levels are hard for the wrong reason. The puzzles themselves are actually a bit too easy. What makes some of them hard are unexplained mechanics due to the level order being randomized, the floaty controls, and the fact that enemies can spawn right on you. That said, most of the levels aren't really that hard, even the ones that are called "Hard". The one actual difficult level (and again, it's difficult for un-fun reasons) is about 10 times harder than the next hardest level for some reason.

Positive things I can say about it: the graphics and music are charming in an unpolished way, and we didn't have problems connecting to servers (not too much lag either). The levels that weren't badly designed were actually pretty fun and creative. But overall, I'd say you should only get this game if it's on sale or free.
