If you’re looking for a terrific game to play online — in addition to Pet Society — then let me humbly suggest to you: Farm Town. You will be stunned by the gameplay and addicted to the gamesmanship in a matter of moments once the colorful logo greets your eye and your fertile farmland loads waiting for your aesthetic touch and business brilliance.
The idea of the Farm Town is to build neighbors and to become land wealthy and object rich. You achieve those goals by harvesting your neighbor’s farms to earn coins and you can send gifts like trees and animals to help your neighbor create a working farm. You can later harvest the fruit for more coins.
You hire your fellow farmers in the marketplace. You will earn a higher crop yield and a better sale rate if you let someone else pull in your harvest. When the harvest is in, you return to the marketplace to sell your crops so you can buy more land and plant more trees and crops.
After plowing your harvested field, you then seed the land by going into the Farm Town store where you can buy all sorts of supplies.
You can also pretty up your farm with barns and houses to help earn experience points that will level you up in the game.
Here’s my farm! I’m “Doc Weatherall” in Farm Town and, right now, I love planting onions to get the greatest bang for my planted buck. Last night I hired a neighbor to harvest about half of my field and I earned 175,000 coins and her take was 91,000! That’s teamwork. That’s neighborly. That’s the beauty of Farm Town!
On Facebook, you can add those in your Friends list to become your Farm Town neighbors. Simply click on their icon to be taken to their farm to work or chat or just admire their handiwork.
Here’s the action interface where you can move around your farm, and plow and harvest and win awards and go to town.
Sometimes you’ll be asked to help tend a neighbor’s farm in their absence. This can be a pleasurable experience as you see them actively progressing in the game; or it can be a sobering mitzvah as you see how far your fellow farmer has fallen on hard times and left a farm to rot and waste away.
In the end, you have to find a delicate balance between having lots of animals and buildings or dedicating your farm to planting as many crops as possible to earn the churn. I’m currently of the mind that I want a farm that loads fasts for my neighbors to harvest and one that also provides me just a little aesthetic happiness in my little white farm house corner of the world.
If you’re on Facebook and you’d like to play Farm Town, sign me up as your friend, and we’ll get to tending together!
