Fae Farm is a farming sim set in a magical world set on the mysterious island of Azoria. Here is our Fae Farm Review.
The game was developed and published by Phoenix Labs, it was released on 8 September 2023 for Nintendo Switch and PC.
In the story of Fae Farm, you find a letter in a bottle that sets you on an adventure, you seek out the island of Azoria, but before you get there you are caught in a whirlpool and end up stranded there. The mayor welcomes you and asks you to help out to get rid of them and make the island safe again.
The introduction is pretty slow, but it isn’t boring, but a lot of it involves walking from point A to point B, and after that, you have a storyline you can follow that unlocks new things in the world. The game lets you grind a lot and even gives you some quests like getting cozy level 5 pretty early on, the only problem is, you can’t get cozy level 5 yet due to not having unlocked the items to make some of the things. I would have liked to have an indication that it’s some type of long-term quest to work on because both I and my friend were scratching our heads over how we could complete that quest only to find out we can’t yet.
The grinding isn’t that bad and actually really fun, at first when it said to get 20 of X I was annoyed, but when I actually started grinding it out, I had a lot of fun. Especially with friends, the game just gets a lot more fun. This is the 1st time I haven’t actually completed a game before writing the game, this is mainly just because of how much fun the game is and that I want to make it a long-term playing game, something that games hardly do these days.
There are a ton of different things to farm, grow, craft, and people to meet. The villagers all have their own quest type they give you and some you can even romance when you build a good bond with them. Besides that, in the dungeon where you can get your ores, there are also some cool enemies you need to defeat, and at the end a brand new and cool quest for you.
The game has a cute chibi look to it, and it reminded me a lot of the MySims games we had 10 years ago on the Wii. It’s a perfect art style for a game like this and with its naturelike area, it feels like a blast to explore. Also due to this, it can be a bit confusing to traverse around in the beginning, but luckily there is a map and you can set a marker on where you need to go making it a lot easier.
