Robot Farm – the relaxing adventure RPG with farming-sim elements

What is Robot Farm?
In a world where everyone has amnesia, the player and his team of “Aokobots” must prepare to fight a dangerous threat that will arrive in one ingame year. To achieve this goal, the player must build a “Robot Farm,” a farm run by Aokobots that are guided by the player's hand. Once the farm is stable and bringing in a recurring income, the player must travel the world - meeting the seven remaining “Engineers” and reawakening their true potential as an Aokobot Operator.

Robot Farm is a traditional turn-based adventure RPG with Harvest Moon-like elements sprinkled on top, and features hours of story content to discover. A world is generated for the player at the beginning of the game, and throughout their adventure they will meet various fauna, monsters, chests, robots, and people that will help them grow stronger. At the end of the in-game year, they will face the threat head-on in a climactic final battle.

Who made Robot Farm?
The game was developed by NOKORIWARE, a small team of people around the world who just want to make some fun video games. The game was built with money and time invested in by the team directly. Our one goal for this project is to make you smile, somehow, someway.

What technology was used to make Robot Farm?
Robot Farm is being built on the We Shall Wake game engine, otherwise known as NOKORI ENGINE, or NNGINE (pronounced “engine”) for short. It is a Java-based OpenGL engine that can work on any OS without major work to game code to accommodate them.

Nice! When’s it come out?
Robot Farm will be released sometime during 2017. This extremely flexible release schedule has been chosen so that proper polishing, testing, and feedback implementation can be completed. The game will be available on the Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems.
