It’s Arbor Day season, and what is the best way to spend the evening after a long day of planting trees? By planting virtual trees, of course! So sit back, relax, and let me tell you about the newly found indie game Farmer Supreme!
Farmer Supreme! takes players on a unique journey through a world filled with heroes and villains. Children of the realm train in hopes of fame and massive fortune. Except in the case of Lil’ Max, an orphan boy set on vengeance. His enemy? Famine. His fellow townsfolk are starving, and sweet Lil’ Max wants to help. He will take the arduous journey to meet the last known farmer and one day be known as Farmer Supreme!
My first reaction to Farmer Supreme! was that it is a bit dark and the crops having eyes mildly freaks me out; however, these thoughts are quickly squashed. This is one of the few farming sims that use an open world format and a nonlinear storyline. There are three runs players can go through, including farmer, hero, and villain. With six different endings thus, the replayability is through the roof. To become the Farmer Supreme, players must collect and plant all available crops and max out their quality. This game does not feel as relaxing as some of the classics, like Harvest Moon, but it has an almost Legend of Zelda feel.
This 2D pixel art exploration farming sim has not even dropped yet, and I am itching to get my hands on a copy. There are puzzles to complete, mini-games to play, and friendships to explore. Plus, there is a dolphin with legs that collects the stuff players sell. How awesome is that? There is literally something for everyone in Farmer Supreme! and I am stoked.
Odds and Ends
While there is no official release date, players can expect to play Farmer Supreme! on PC and Nintendo Switch. The best way to keep up to date is by checking out their social media.
