The latest instalment of the critically acclaimed ‘Giant’ series, Farming Giant challenges players to create an international agricultural empire across the rich and fertile lands of Europe, encapsulated in the expansive game world. Whether crop farming or rearing livestock, Farming Giant features extensive production processes and trade opportunities as well as a multitude of management options for players to build their enterprise and become a farming mogul.

Bah I thought this was a game about playing a giant farmer.

Do you have any idea how hard it would be to sustain yourself as a giant with minuscule crops? No wonder they are all savage human eating beasts.

I refuse to even look at this unless you can find me a dubstep trailer.

This guy should be in charge of making all the game trailers.

I downloaded it to try it; it crashed about 4 minutes in every time. Then upon restarting and attempting to zone land [step one to doing anything] it crashes with a long, garbled texture error. Definitely buggy as shit; will need some extreme patching to be playable as it is to be honest.

I also had an issue [obviously before the game became unplayable] where I had about 300,000 dollars left and decided to borrow more money; except I accidentally did just 10,000 and *poof* all of my assets were magically transformed into.. exactly 10,000 dollars. Was a pretty sigh worthy moment.

Can someone give a download link? I was looking around the website for one but the only things appear to be other sims. I couldn't even find a "buy now" button or similar.

I couldn't find anything on their site, but gamersgate has it for $30 ouch.  If I had free time I'd pony up for X-Com instead - this looks a lot like just the farming bits out of Capitalism, maybe with a little more detail.  Oh well, I put in a price alert, I'll still probably give it a whirl when it goes under the magic $20 point...

It could be (have been) very nice but I tried it and it is VERY buggy indeed. Money disappearing, game crashing every few minutes, main menu not showing up, sound not working for some people,....  this is a disaster. This needs heavy patching
