Made for GMTK Jam 2018 in 48 hours!

24 Karat Farm is about farming during a devastating heatwave. 

What happens to a farming sim when you can't grow crops? If you take a genre about expansion, streamlining and production and kick it's core from beneath it, what are you left with?

I think you're left with gameplay which tells a very different story!

This is really just an experiment that I'm not entirely happy with at the moment, but I do plan to re-visit this idea some time in the future.

Played this while I was already feeling a bit depressed, which was a mistake I think, oops!

I've always been a big fan of farming games (even ones that deconstruct them like this) so that's what drew to me to this idea-- but admittedly I didn't make it very far before giving up. I'm super interested in the concept though and if I wasn't feeling so sad from my cat leaving me in the game I would probably pick it up for another playthrough.

Good luck with all of your future games!

Hey thanks for playing! 

Yeah this is a pretty bleak game, apologies! I think you hit the nail on the head though - it's an interesting concept, but is it actually that fun to play? I'm not too sure. It was certainly a bit of a chore to make, i guess that's why I haven't revisited the idea since entering it for a game jam. 

Anyway, thanks and good luck to you too!

I think that's a fine starting point though, y'know? The joy of being a smaller or single person dev team is that you can work out concepts like that much more freely (assuming you've got the time) so if you wanted to re-visit this concept I'm sure you would do a heck of a job! <3
