Given the chance to work our way through the teeniest, tiniest of dioramas is nothing new. We’ve done it in recent times with the likes of LEGO Builder’s Journey and are now being given the opportunity to do so again in Island Farmer. And we’re not sure there’s ever been a cheaper option available on Xbox.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, as well as PC with full Xbox Play Anywhere capabilities in hand (allowing you to pick up and play the game on one system, shifting your progress over to the next as you wish), Island Farmer from Mens Sana Interactive and Silesia Games looks to be a bit of a delight.
Helped along by a mere £2.49 price tag – discounted to £1.99 at launch – Island Farmer is a beautiful little game that tasks you with overseeing the land around you, working through blocks, tilting cameras and zooming in and out to survey the full picture.
Full of colour and detail, as you take actions in Island Farmer, your little island farm will spring into life, evolving, changing, providing even more joy. With no stress or strain coming from a time limit or challenging test, there’s a chance that Island Farmer will be the perfect little game to kick back with for an evening.
Key features include:
- – Click on two blocks to swap them;
- – Turn the camera around the island;
- – Focus the camera on a block; – Zoom in and out to see details or the big picture;
- – If you need, preview the expected arrangement.
- – 20 different diorama-like islands.
That price near demands a purchase and so we’d advise you to head to the Xbox Store and grab a download right now. Whether you play it on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, or across all three, is then up to you.
Keep an eye out for a review.
Farms are set up in islands over calm and clear water. In this tiny fantasy experience, that is easy to do and very relaxing, just like a 3D jigsaw puzzle. Carefully observe the island, try to memorize it, then shuffle the blocks. Swap blocks to reproduce the desired island and it will compose the archipelago. There is no time limit, no logic challenges, nor resources to manage, so you can calmly just focus on the core mechanics while listening to a soothing soundtrack.
