Hey future farmers! 👋
Welcome to another exciting installment of our dev log series for PuffPals: Island Skies! We're excited to discuss the ins and outs of the farming mechanics that will shape the heart of our game. Although farming might not be perfectly polished just yet, it's at a stage where your comprehensive testing will be HIGHLY encouraged (GET HYPED FOR ALPHA)!! Let’s explore the world of farming and its role in our game's ecosystem! 😊
⚒️🍄 Farming Basics and Tools 🍄⚒️
The basic farming process involves a series of essential steps: hoeing the land, planting seeds, watering, and using fertilizers for enhanced growth. This labor of love culminates in the bountiful harvest you eagerly anticipate. In simpler terms, your journey begins with preparing the land, and then patiently witnessing your crops come to life!
Equipping yourself for this journey requires, of course, some tools! Your trusty hoe will be your main tool, using it to prepare the land for your seeds! You’ll need some seeds to plant, and the watering can ensures their nourishment. And don't forget the magic of fertilizer to boost growth! As the mechanics evolve, more tools might find their way into your hands, enhancing your farming experience and expanding your possibilities! 👀
🌿🍅 What to do with Crops 🍅🌿
Once your crops have matured, you can harvest them, sell them for profit, enjoy their raw goodness, or even incorporate them into recipes! Some crops might find their purpose in quests or be gifted to your island neighbors! While we won't reveal all the surprises, expect your crops to be more than just something to look at! ✨
🥕🕹️ Alpha Testing and Beyond 🕹️🥕
While farming might not have reached a state of absolute perfection, it has progressed to a stage where your testing and feedback during alpha will be highly encouraged. Our primary focus remains on establishing the core elements of PuffPals: Island Skies, but we're definitely brewing plans for the future. The involvement of Pals and Pets in the farming process is still a mystery, and we look forward to hearing your suggestions during alpha testing. Seasonal crops will be implemented later, adding an ever-changing touch to your farms! Greenhouses and indoor plants are being considered, and the prospect of growing flowers and nurturing trees is on our to-do list!
🌾🫐 The End 🫐🌾
And there you have it, a comprehensive sneak peek into the farming mechanics awaiting you in PuffPals: Island Skies! Remember that your feedback during the upcoming alpha testing phase will play a role in shaping the final product.
