About This Game

Whether you specialise in grain, fruits or even maintaining your own dairy farm, in Farming World you have the ultimate choice on how you shape your business. With dozens of seed types to choose from and an extensive stock market listing, you’ll have to adapt to become profitable. With plenty of seeds growing at different seasons you’ll need to stock up so you can sell when produce is at a high demand.

But as you continue to increase your profits that small patch of land you started with is not going to cut it. In this farming simulator PC game, you’ll need to expand your farms reaches across the map. Land can be purchased if you’re wealthy enough but for those with a limited budget you might be better off renting the land until you can afford to own your entire farm. As you obtain more fields to work in, you’ll have to construct roads which allow your vehicles to navigate to the correct patch of land so they can harvest and maintain the fields.

In order to maintain your farm you’ll need to construct a selection of buildings, of which you will have over 40 to construct including; greenhouses, bakeries, butchers and more. You’ll also be able to purchase animals from the traditional chickens and cows to the more unconventional domestic turkeys and ostriches.

Features:

  • Develop road networks for your vehicles to use
  • Purchase and rent land
  • Over 30 different types of seeds to plant
  • Over 40 building types
  • 12 Different animals to purchase
  • Take on contracts to earn more money
  • Detailed weather reports

This is my first review and I feel like I should express my feeling after playing this game for 2 hrs so noone would have to face the same expirience.

This game is boring. There are lots of flaw in this game for example:

- No auto-feed for livestocks so you have to feed them by clicking. Imaging you have like 10+ barns
- Kinda broken. You can earn a lot of money from selling produced food e.g steak and chicken meat. There is no need to plant any crop
- AI is way stupid. It will do almost nothing. You will feel like you're playing alone.
- No way to cure disease for your crop!?
- Background music is lame and repeatitive
- No shortkeys so you have to click everything (Facebook style)
- Way too easy to play. And you have to collect more stars to unlock more stuff with aren't worth unlocking.

The only good thing about this game is it tells you the suitable temperature for each crop so you might be able to try to plant them in real life (I guess). That's all I could think of...

Sorry for my bad English..

This Game is BOOOOOORING!

The Tutorial is really slow, and is a bit irritating.

i have played about an hour of freeplay, and either i have not found it or it has no automation at all!
wich is infuriating if you have 15 cow stables and everyone needs to be klicked twice every minute.

also the UI is suboptimal, it is too complicatet too sell stuff (again no auto), and every window needs too be closed by clicking a 3 pixel X, before its possible to do other things, like open the window you wanted to open in the first place, but you misclicked because the mouseovers are too slow, and the buttons for the menu are not intiutive.

One might say i have not played enough to Judge, but i say this game punishes you for playing, so i´m not trying again!

Sincerly

Tedious, tedious tedious. I'd rather watch real grass grow. half an hour to harvest one small field that yielded 50.6 percent after tender care. There are so many other sims on Steam that deserve your money, Game Dev Tycoon, Cars Incorporated, for example, not this one. 1990's graphics, no way to adjust screen resolution, miniature text. A huge waste of money. Unless you're living in 1995 then it would seem brand new.

Great game. Had it since release date. Can't say too much bad about it since reacent updates. Basically its a farming tycoon game with great detail. Would recommend this game to everyone who likes Faming/Tycoon games.

Best part of this entire thing...the Devs listen to their community!!! The community asked for and autofeed button...we got it!

A better name for this game would be Waiting World, since the only things you can do in this game are waiting, and waiting some more.
There are no redeeming features whatsoever. I would dissect the game's mechanics to point out where and how it went wrong, but there are no mechanics to dissect aside from waiting for a crop to finish and then waiting some more.

If you want a farm game that's more interesting, get Sim Farm from somewhere. But whatever you do, avoid this one.

Too easy. It's really hard to fail at anything. Much harder than to succeed.

The most interesting feature I've found was the ability to cut meat out of your animals without killing them. That must be horribly painful and animal rights groups might find this disturbing. But it's an interesting thought. And is balanced by the fact that after the animals reach a certain age they gain civil rights and retirement rights, after which they can no longer be sold or cut.

Farming is ridiculously easy (you rent everything and still get >100% profits), animal harvesting is easier.

It's so easy that if you notice turkey meat sells for more than beef, you can set your butcher to cut your cattle into turkey meat.

TL;DR: it's too easy, devs didn't pay much attention to details and the game gets boring after 10 minutes (that's counting the download time).

I've tried playing the game several times on my Mac, and each time without fail the game will instntly crash to desktop during random parts.

http://youtu.be/oyX4XGuj3eE

Even simply clicking new game would crash, and I have been unable to finish the tutorial since the game's release.
From what I've seen it seems rather indepth and complex, perfect for someone that likes farming Simulator games. Although considering the horrble game breaking crashes, and occasional freezing, it's simply not worth buying at this time.

Not what I thought it would be. its quite basic and looks like its ancient in graphics. The tutorial is not informative enough and the game play put me to sleep. I usually love farming games but this one is a zero for me

This game just had update 0.01!! But it's not an Alpha? Feels like it! Untill they clear up their interface I won't be able to play this.. The "foggy" font makes my eyes hurt.. even then it still feels like i'm playing something made for an Ipad..

If there was a money back button i'd use it..

This Game is Overpriced, buggy, laggy, and lacks of work.
$14.99 USD Farming World

Graphic 2/10
Sound 1/10
Music 1/10
Gameplay 2/10
Replayable 3/10
Creative 2/10
Total: 3/10
Felt like one those games you play on Win 98 in the old days, It's plain to start with.
Sound is repetatble same sound every 3 secs, it gets really annoying after 10 mins.
Music is horrified, repeats every 5 secs... simple tone like old home phone ring.
The gameplay is okay, but it's quite buggy and laggy, personally I am a big fan of sim/farming games, but this one is totally overpriced and at the look of it it's like those facebook games convert into pc games.
Time consume is like very long waits in the game.
This looks like farm frenzy #1 in the old days. many ideas are alike.

after 10 mins of gameplay I shutdowned all the tut. music/sound etc, I am very disappointed at dev.
everything takes forever to build. Day/night cycle is useless. (brighter screen vs Darker screen.)

The idea of sim/farm game is really good, but it needs a little more work than this to do the job.

I Tried 8 new farms in a row and could not make my first dollar. This game needs some serious rebalancing.

This is an excellent farm management sim; but I can't help but wish it could have been better. The first annoying thing you will notice is the camera is lacking. You can't zoom out very far, cannot rotate view, and even on the closest zoom you will strain your eyes just to see your people working. It's not a very flawed game though, and if you like this sort of genre you will definitely have a lot of fun. But, seeing how it borrows heavily from previous farm management sims, you will probably wish you could play those again instead. This game sports some unique features, but at the same time you will wish it had some that were available in older games of this type. For this reason I would highly recommend "John Deere: American Farmer" or "SimFarm".

Farming World is still a nice game, however.
