14 Best Best Upcoming Farming RPG Games
1. Garden Life
About two weeks ago, finally, number one: we have Garden Light, which is actually from the same old Bus Simulator PC game service. These are the best attempts at sandbox farming Sim games, which are actually a mix of two animations in 3D, or rather, still-shaded designs mixed with 3D. It’s a game attempting to be seen quite a bit lately in other genres but not in farming life sims. Garden Light is said to be coming out for PCs, Switch, and other consoles as well early next year.
Announced through IGN, at number two, we have a game called Enshrouded, which is from the same developers as Portal Light. It is a survival crafting and action RPG set within this voxel-based continent where you must journey through mountains and deserts of an open world, free to choose your own path and shape your destiny. That’s what’s up with this game. Anyway, the game is said to be coming to PC, but it’s still in the third quarter of 2023.
Coming through a Kickstarter, with over four times, actually five times its initial goal funded so far, we have ‘Solo Punk.’ You’re all familiar with the terms cyberpunk, dieselpunk, steampunk, and we’ve even got elf punk. This game here is described by folks as a cozy survival game, set in an advanced world where there are a lot of floating islands around. Do you guys remember Chrono Trigger’s floating islands in the background? It’s just like that, kind of like heaven, but with even more detail and story. The game is said to be coming to PCs only by the end of 2023.
4. BloomTown: A different Story
At number four, we have BloomTown, a PG turn-based monster taming, fighting, and social RPG. This is a different story; what you’re looking at over here is actually a new game from the same developers as ‘Graveyard Keeper’ and ‘Punch Club.’ It’s pretty much a nice loop of pixel-designed nostalgia games with high replay value too. This is the company’s first attempt at mainly adventures. It’s said to be coming to all platforms by the end of the year as well.
5. Tales of Seikyu
At number five, as its developers’ second work, we’ve got Tales of Seikyu. This is a fantasy farming sim game set in a lost land called Seikyu, inhabited by legendary creatures. It’s, I mean technically, what developers have put up on Steam when describing it. However, this land is frequently threatened by the forces of old gods, and your presence over here is supposed to provide peace for the townsfolk. From the trailer, the game is Japanese-inspired, almost Ghibli-style anime. It’s said to be coming to PC and Switch in the early next year.
6. Fae Farm
Nintendo Switch and PC owners can now look forward to Fae Farm. This game is releasing on both platforms on September 8th of this year. Phoenix Labs has actually released a new trailer for it. For those of you new to cozy survival farming and life sims, in this game, you play the role of an adventurer who’s eventually tasked with restoring harmony to this little town. Anyway, the game is going to be playable online with up to four players.
7. The Witch of Fern Island
At number seven, from a few months ago, for the first time, I believed it’s getting a mention over here; we have The Witch of Fern Island. This is a story about a girl who wants to become a real witch, with the aim to combine gameplay through sandbox open world with elements of RPG adventure and, of course, a lot of exploration. ‘The Witch of Fern Island’ has already reached its initial goal on Kickstarter and is now into stretch goals. It is said to be coming out in a few months from now for PCs, Switch, and the next generation of consoles.
8. Go-Go Town!
Coming from the same developers of a couple of other really well-received open-world adventure games of these past few years, and graphically well-designed games too, at number eight, we have ‘GoGo Town.’ This is a town-building, rather theme park-style life sim in which you actually play the role of a mayor and manage the whole thing, bridging people’s activities, environmental life quality, etc. ‘GoGo Town’ is said to be coming to PC, Switch, and other consoles as well in early to mid-2024.
Coming up behind, we have Poglings, described by its developer as a cute pet sim creature collecting adventure in which you play as Kibo, this young boy who’s taken up the profession of becoming a Poggling Hatcher. These are just these stuffed bird/cats looking creatures that each have their own unique abilities that you can then put into work. Poglings is said to be coming to PCs by the end of the year.
At number 10, we have Cornucopia. Some of you might know this name from the books or a rather famous painting with a wooden cone and a lot of fruits coming out of it. Interestingly, the name of the game suggests kind of the same thing. It’s an immersive, as described, two-dimensional farming RPG that allows you to compete in festivals by growing the best of everything you have on your farm, mostly animals and fruits, and a lot of mini-games are included. The game is said to be coming out on July 31st for PCs only.
11. Litchi Town
Moving on, we have a social life sim, or rather, a casual farming sim, which is the developer’s first project, going by the name Litchi Town. In this game, you live the life of a country girl who resides in this little town with a big tree in the middle of it, supposedly a life force called lychee. The game consists of raising animals, farming, building, taming, and a lot of decorating as well. It’s said to be coming to PCs only in the final quarter of 2023.
12. Fantasy Life I: The Girl Who Steals Time
A couple of months ago, through their Nintendo Direct stream, we came across another Animal Crossing-inspired farming sim going by the name Fantasy Life I: The Girl Who Steals Time. This is an RPG life sim, and we’ve heard, although not really sure, that it’s the sequel to ‘Fantasy Life’ that came out almost 10 years ago for 3DS. Anyway, it’s said to be coming on hybrid consoles only by the end of the year 2023.
13. A New Leaf: Memories
Coming from the same publishers of Roots of Paka, who are pretty good at making historically accurate management and farming simulation games, we’ve got Everything in Case You Missed It: Once Again, A New Leaf Memories. It’s here now with a new trailer, and it was previously said to be coming out in 2022, but it’s now actually releasing by the end of summer for PCs only. It’s quite inspired by Rune Factory, where you wake up on a shore with no memories, and now you have to make a whole life in this village as you go.
14. Harvest Island
And last but not least, coming as the first work of its really fine team, we have a mystery horror farming sim inspired by Stardew Valley but rather similar to Earthbound in its storytelling. The game over here goes by the name Harvest Island, which pretty much offers everything Stardew Valley had to offer – the farming, collecting, building, and NPCs to interact with, except there’s a deep and rather green story in there too. The game is said to be coming to PCs only by the end of summer.
