The peaceful casual farming game 'Farm Together' has left Early Access

Posted by , | Views: 3,470

For those who're looking to run their very own farm, with a rather sweet visual style Farm Together has now left Early Access.

Disclosure: Key provided by the developer to our Steam Curator.

I've been really impressed with Milkstone Studios throughout the development of it, they've responded to a lot of feedback from players and the amount of updates it had has been quite crazy. The amount of new features, new crops and so on it has gained over a few months is massive.

When I tried it with our streamer Sin a while ago, we got a little bit hooked by it. It has such a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere to it and visually it's lovely too. The fact that you can invite others into your farm, while setting permissions so they can't ruin all your work is a nice touch too. Time also continues moving while you're offline, so you don't need to sit and wait in-game for everything to happen.

The Linux version does have a strange issue, with the graphics for a lot of things being completely white. However, there is a workaround. If you add this as a launch option for the game on Steam it fixes it for me:

-force-glcore42 -force-clamped

Apart from that issue, I do think it's worth a look. The developer is aware of it, so hopefully they can find why it's happening.

Find it on Humble Store and Steam.

I bought this game just last night and when it launches I can hear the game audio and my menu interactions, however the entire screen is flickering with random colors. I reached out to the dev with no response so far, but if anyone has any advise for how to deal with this I'd like to know.

Did you try the workaround in the article?

Yep, no change in behavior.

Yep, no change in behavior.

Maybe you should edit the save file here:
/home/<username>/.local/share/Steam/userdata/<your_steam_id>/673950/remote

I did that, and it worked for me. You can try what Liam suggested afterwards.

Here's a corresponding forum thread, maybe you will find it useful.

That worked! Looks like the game was automatically setting the screen resolution to 1x1 XD. Thanks for the help!

Same here, it worked, thanks, I'm so happy I can play this game at a higher resolution than 1x1!

The downside to kid games is Steam. It's annoying for my kids and myself when Steam decides to forget your password and then they can't log in until I am available. If I can get over that, I might pick this game up someday. For now, my kids are occupied enough with the couple games they have. I don't need to introduce them to the idea of video game backlogs at this stage. I wish my game collection didn't cause me decision paralysis.

You can create them their own account(s?) and use family sharing or buy the game for their account.

Lovely game. Gladly not playable in the browser, would be a time killer at work XD.

for now, I am happy to let my kids game on my account, luckily, as my daughter plays during the day, and I play at night, we have a kind of harmony.

But once they are older, I will explore the option of family account as Eike suggested.
