Farthest Frontier is a complex real-time strategy with an extensive economic aspect that takes us to a world inspired by the European Middle Ages. The game was developed by independent studio Crate Entertainment, who previously delivered the bestselling hack'n'slash entitled Grim Dawn.

Mechanics

In Farthest Frontier we take on the role of administrators of a settlement located on the borders of the world. Our task is to lead its development in such a way as to turn a small village consisting mainly of wooden buildings into a prosperous town.

During the game, we have many duties to fulfil. We are responsible for extracting raw materials, with the help of which we construct various buildings. There are over fifty buildings to construct - from houses and public buildings, through various workshops (which can produce over sixty unique items) and warehouses, to structures related to defence, such as barracks, where we recruit soldiers (the soldiers must be properly equipped), watchtowers or palisades (as you progress, they are replaced by stone walls). The last structures are important because with time our settlement starts to attract the attention of enemies hoping for easy loot. Additionally, production buildings can be upgraded, increasing their capabilities.

Food acquisition also plays an important role. Food is provided mainly by agriculture (although hunting and fishing are also worthy of some attention). During the game, we decide which crops will be grown in each field, while at the same time we take care to apply what is known as crop rotation to prevent soil depletion. Once the needs of residents have been met, we may also consider selling surplus stock and finished goods. It should be remembered that the value of the goods in question varies by region.

Even if we do everything right, a variety of external factors can affect the village. Heat or cold can destroy even the most well-tended crops (as can hungry deer), bears are a danger not only to residents but also to food stores, and groundwater can dry up if we overdo tree felling. As if that were not enough, the settlement is threatened by more than a dozen different diseases. Failure to supply clean water can lead to an outbreak of dysentery or cholera, not providing proper clothing and footwear exposes serfs to tetanus or rabies, and not dealing with rats (which are more numerous the more waste there is on the streets and the less well we do to preserve stored food) can lead to an outbreak of plague.

Technical aspects

Farthest Frontier features colourful and well detailed graphics. Buildings are full of details, the environment is densely vegetated, and the seasons change over time; the day and night cycle is also implemented.
