The Last Farm is a 2D pixel art farming simulator, set in a harsh world that is trying to recover from devastating wars and plagues. Following an attack on the town of Riverside that left their farm in ruins, the player is tasked with rebuilding the farm and saving the town from starvation. Selective breeding of crops for genetic traits such as disease resistance will help players survive the virus-carrying blightstorms, while using recovered technology to help automate their farm will allow them to feed the ever-increasing population of the community they have joined.
Players will be tasked with balancing their own needs versus those of the town of Riverside. Will you give your first harvest over to the town to replenish their ever-shrinking food stores, or will you sell it to fund the expansion of your farm? Will you try and breed your crops to resist the diseases carried by the blightstorms, or to give greater yields per plant? And, as a member of the town council, you will take part in votes that shape the future of the town. Decide whether to increase resources to security or trade, allow refugees into the town or turn them away, and many other decisions that will determine how Riverside evolves.
