what game engine was it made with? If none what code program was used to make it?

Hi!

We used Love 2D, which is a great framework for simple 2D games using lua. You can find the complete source code for the game at https://github.com/vidarn/go_farm if you're interested. :)

Thank You Very Much. I will look into trying to learn lua.


Do you have any tips for me about where I can find good tutorials and such for learning lua.

Hi!

It probably depends on your overall experience with programming and what you want to achieve. If your goal is just to get started making games I would actually recommend you to take a look at game maker by yoyo games. It's a great 2D game engine where a lot of commercial games are made.

On the other hand, if you are interested in programming, love 2D and lua is a good place to start. Maybe this is a good starting point: http://www.osmstudios.com/tutorials/your-first-lov... ? Please let me know what you are looking for and I can probably give you better advice. :)

Best regards,

Very amazing game. Really cute and all.

Played it with my friend once and we planted corn everywhere and there was so much corn the game crashed.

Second time the two of us played, we planted berries everywhere. Player two disappeared and stopped existing so we couldn't play together anymore.

I don't know if that was the intended use because there was a crap ton of corn and berries. Like everywhere. Any place there was grass we had planted corn.

Other than that, great game!

Thanks a lot for playing the game and taking the time to comment :)

It really warms my heart that you enjoyed it. I'm sorry for the crashes, we've never stress tested the game by covering the entire ground with corn before ;) Thanks for letting us know!

Best regards,

Vidar

It's no problem with the crashes, it makes the whole experience a whole lot funnier when there's too much corn.
