There are many agricultural games. However, up to this point, as far as I know, none of these farming games had mechanisms. Soon Lightyear Frontier will fix this serious oversight by offering a game of cultivation, construction and exploration of the open world set in a distant world of science fiction. It is currently in development, with little more than a Steam page and a revealing trailer to its name, and will be released in Early Access on a date yet to be announced.
It is planned to be cooperative for 1 to 4 players and will feature an arrow and western soundtrack. Yeehaw. There’s more than a bit of No Man’s Sky and Astroneer here, with a lot of rounded edges and saturated colors.
Of course, you will carry out your agriculture, construction and exploration of this alien world with a mechanism. Lightyear Frontier will have four seasons and a weather system, and much of the game will protect your farm from the weather and seasons as you "discover and grow exotic plants" and "tame wildlife."
As you upgrade your tractor mechanism, you’ll be able to explore more of nature, discovering a “mystery-based narrative” and exploring “the ruins left by unknown entities,” which almost sounds the same over the course of the science fiction planet.
Game preparers show how agriculture works in one mechanism: water sprayers, crop harvesters, and the like. There is also a free-standing building that allows you to build the windmills and ranch houses on your farm and fences that are much smaller than yours. Who are the fences for? I guess not you, as you’re on a big horned robot tractor.
Personally, I find it very exciting how someone likes BattleTech the most is that there is not only one mechanism called BattleMaster (sure, well), but also a mechanism called CattleMaster (this is the material).
You can find Lightyear Frontier on Steam.
