tiny farm has an itch now if you want the exe:)

for my final game in the lumpy games tiny games pack i made a little farming simulator. i would consider it to be pretty feature extensive as you can farm ranch fish and mine your way through my tiny little world.
also it has fully featured co-op
how to play--

you can open the shop by pressing x on the froggys(frobert and frebeca) to buy seeds, sell crops, buy animals, sell goods, turn bars into ore, buy harvest multipliers, and buy tool upgrades by switching menus with the right and left buttons with after pressing on a froggy, it doesnt matter which you press on. to tend to your crops you have to till and water the ground to plant seeds then water them each day for them to grow. when theyre grown you can harvest and sell them to frebeca. when you have animals theyll start out as babies and you have to feed them for 2 days until you can start to get artisan goods from them when you feed them. fishing is always available for some quick cash in case you need a bit more money to fill up your crop space or something. when you have 4 iron or gold ore from mining the rocks on the bottom of the screen you can combine them with some money in the second to last shop menu to get bars and upgrade your tools on the next menu. you can also sell them if you want or if your tools are maxed out. on the menu where you get bars you can also spend 500$ to upgrade your multipliers on crop, animal, fish, and mining output. i was thinking 1000$ might be better so let me know. i hope you have fun:)

update 1: i wanted to change the tiles so i used a free tileset on itchio called pico rpg forest tileset, the same one villager used i thought that game was really pretty and was happy to learn its sprites were free. i also made all the stuff fit on the main screen after realizing when i added seasons you could only buy 4 crops at a time so the farm plot only needed to be 4 3x3 squares if you ask me. also the shops are combined. i think it turned out really nice

update 2: the tool icons move better when you press and you can hold down to use them as well and itll go the the beat of the music. i also added a bunch of polish and qol stuff but the coolest part is defintely that the game can save everything except your planted crops now. have some money, seeds, crops, goods, ore, and bars in your inventory and theyll save as well as all your animals whenever you sleep pretty cool stuff you can also reset your save whenever you like on the main screen.

upgrade 3: you can buy crop,good,fish, and mining multipliers now with 4 iron and gold bars so the endgame progression is more balanced:)

No way,I'm working on somethings similar at the moment :D but you're pixelart is much nicer :)
It was also very interesting to see how you implemented the different activities, good work!
I like that it has coop

how to sell things in this game?

P#128840 2023-04-21 13:00

press right on the frog menu to switch buy/sell menus

P#128842 2023-04-21 13:23

Very interesting and a good bit of fun. If this was developed further it could be a great pico8 stardew valley!

P#128852 2023-04-21 16:10

Got this error when interacting with the froggos at the beginning of winter.

Fortunately you can just sleep away until Spring comes.
Also, could the Golden pail work in a bigger area? Like a 5x5 square around the PC would be helpful.

thank you bro its fixed now:)

P#128959 2023-04-24 16:07

Thanks for the cool game! I see you already updated the things we talked about, will pick it up on the future as well!
Until then I have the gameplay vid from the stream if you don't mind!

Will be watching with interest where you will take it in the future! Lot of potential!

P#128964 2023-04-24 18:15

I am getting the same error as soon as I load into the game.

P#128999 2023-04-25 13:28

should be good now thanks guys

P#129016 2023-04-25 17:41

Thanks for tackling all the bugs. Here's one more for you :)

This happens when you make too much money and the integer overflows to negative. It seems like a common problem though so google searching "pico8 long integer" should give some useful results.

P#129035 2023-04-26 00:53

its fixed

P#129040 2023-04-26 08:34

There seems to be a bug where I can't fish. Also, the last bug report wasn't fixed, so I think you might have messed up that bug fix. (Besides, it's not really affecting anything, so I'd recommend you just revert the bug fix and leave it)

P#129082 2023-04-27 14:28

try resetting your saves if you cant gather anything, i thought i fixed that though..

This is a delightful little farm sim. I really enjoyed it, and think it's a successful project as it. After my first playthrough, I tried to optimize, and I have a few suggestions on how to prevent players like me from gaming the system...

  • Limit how much time there is in a day. This is to prevent how many fish a person can catch in a day, especially in the early game.

  • Limit how many animals a person can own. My 158 goats really maxed my income and caused a lot of slow-down. 12 animals are probably enough, (but maybe you could add an upgrade to increase the number of animals).

  • Let users sell animals. This goes along with the previous 2 suggestions. That way I'd probably start out with chickens, then gradually upgrade to goats, instead of immediately buying a bunch of goats.

  • Make the iron and gold tools more valuable. In my 2nd playthrough, I pretty much ignored them. For example, you could combine them with the +Crops, +Goods, etc. (Also, Requiring mining to get the +Goods would prevent me from maxing everything too quickly and make mining more important).

But these are just suggestions. When I think back to the games I played as a kid on my Intellivision, I would have played the heck out of this game.

good ideas, if i can find some spare tokens ill make the harvest multipliers cost money and bars, they used to just cost bars but ill change them to 2k and 4k for now. maxing animals at 12 is a good idea and im adding it, also the lag it turns out was from a memory leak with my crop harvest function so the late game shouldnt lag out anymore now. thanks bro good ideas. im not changing fishing because i like to always have it available in case you need some money to fill up your farm plot or something

I really enjoyed this cute little game!! It actually kept me entertained for quite a few hours. (I may have not been the most efficient farmer 😅)

The art style is great and the game feels super polished!

I have a quick suggestion though.
I really think a separate themed OST for each season would improve your existing audio. One song can get a bit boring after a while. I don’t really have a lot of other ideas but if you found more ways to extend the endgame or add a more satisfactory accomplishment, it might also make the game feel more rewarding at the end.

I played it from start to finish til I maxed everything out.
Took some endgame photos for fun!
