Faunus Fields -- 2D RPG/Farming Sim
« on: March 21, 2016, 09:44:18 pm »
Faunus Fields

This is a game I've been working on for ~4 months, written in C# and SFML.

Faunus Fields is a farming sim inspired by Rune Factory and Harvest Moon, with a twist -- a beast that threatens your town and demands tribute in the form of crops every week. I intend to have a pretty deep combat system, lots of secrets, and a main storyline to complete as you farm, build your strength, and get married!

The beast aspect is what really sets it apart from other farming sims that have been released, such as Stardew Valley. The beast forces you to manage your farm and your time efficiently -- if you don't feed the beast you risk making it (and the town) angry.

This game will focus heavily on the RPG elements of the genre, similar to Rune Factory. I intend to flesh out a pretty in-depth combat system so people who like ARPGs should enjoy this game.

Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight

I recently kicked off both my Kickstarter campaign and my Steam Greenlight. Those are available at the links below:

Hi!

It looks very interesting. Looks like it has quite a few mechanics in place already. The threat of the beast i think is quite original for the genre. I hope to see more progress updates in this thread. :D

Want to share what your focussing/working on next?

Thanks! Yea, a decent amount of the game mechanics are implemented, but it's lacking in content.

The next thing I'm focusing on will be fleshing out the feel of the town -- making it feel more lively with NPCs moving about and more diverse dialogue trees.

I also plan on focusing on combat pretty heavily in the next few days, since that's the least developed mechanic by far.

Being a fan of Stardew Valley myself, I would probably enjoy your game too.
But I must say, you really really need to set yourself apart from that game, because after seeing the trailer most will say "oh, that's just like Stardew Valley", and if you don't show the difference to people they will go play that instead.

I wish you the best of luck!  :)

UPDATE ---

I know it must be frustrating constantly having your game compared with Stardew Valley, and I certainly belive in you when you say it is a completely different game, but what you say is not what you are showing.

Still wishing success :)

Thanks for the feedback. Yea, I've realized since yesterday that the trailer doesn't really convey the uniqueness my game has in comparison to Stardew. Hopefully will be getting that redone and updated shortly.
