Farmer Life Simulator Gameplay Preview – I Don’t Think This is How Farming Works

Developed and published by DNA ARMING GAMING – August 21, 2021 (PC)

Farmer Life Simulator attempts to be a farming simulator. The attempt was definitely questionable to begin with and the game misses the target by a wide margin. It’s as if the developers have never seen how farming is actually done or played a farming sim game to begin with.

Saying this game is bare bones is very close to an understatement. There is very little to actually do in the game.

I’m going to be honest here. I’ve played Trader Life Simulator (from the same developers) and I have to say that these games are looking like they are just an asset flip made for easy profit. They look, feel, and play very similarly. They also have a distinct lack of polish and features with very few substantial updates. I wouldn’t be saying this if I’d seen some effort made on part of the developers to make improvements in their subsequent releases but it just isn’t there.

For example, this game uses repeated assets. Everything looks the same. Even the NPCs in the village all look identical with minor variations. The buying and selling mechanic is very similar to the one in Trader Life Simulator. The mechanics are very bare bones and repetitive. There is literally one song for the back ground music and it is constantly on loop.

If this was the first game from the developers, I would find it understandable but this is not their first game. I find it very hard to recommend people buy an under developed product that is made purely for profit as the developers will just continue to churn out the same low quality product repeatedly, i.e. EA Games.

While there is some fun to be had making enough of a profit to unlock everything, your time is better spent elsewhere.

As for the game itself, is it good? Definitely not. Is there some fun to be had? Some may actually find the game to be enjoyable enough. The game play loop is very simple. You buy crops, plant the crops, water and fertilizer the crops, harvest them, sell them, and repeat the loop until you buy out your entire farmland and the automated watering and fertilizing systems. People who enjoy grinding and unlocking everything may find some enjoyment here. The game does start to feel pretty souless after a few hours.

Overall, Farmer Life Simulator is an incredibly underdeveloped product that does have some potential if the developers put in some effort. This will probably not happen looking at the track record of their previous games so I cannot in good conscience recommend this game to anyone.
