GIANTS Software and John Deere are delighted to unveil an exciting addition to the family-friendly gaming universe with the launch of Farming Simulator Kids. Scheduled for release in Spring 2024 on Nintendo Switch™ and mobile devices, this eagerly anticipated game is set to captivate young players with its charming depiction of the colorful and enjoyable world of farming and nature.
Playful Agriculture and an Array of Mini Games
Farming Simulator Kids, with its adorable aesthetics, invites young players to experience the joys of farm life. Striving to create a child-friendly environment, the game emphasizes audiovisual presentation over text, guiding players through a series of entertaining and educational mini-games. Virtual neighbors, including lovable anthropomorphic animal characters, engage players in activities such as harvesting crops or preparing delicious sandwiches.
Education and Entertainment for the Little Ones
Children will explore vibrant farm locations, cultivating and harvesting crops, caring for farm animals such as cows, chickens, and geese in their stables. With a fleet of tractors and vehicles from agricultural machinery manufacturer John Deere at their disposal, kids can operate a variety of machines while creating memorable and educational farming stories. These stories are rewarded with achievements and can be shared using the video creator mode.
Experiencing the Value of Produce
Thomas Frey, Creative Director at GIANTS Software, expresses enthusiasm, stating, “We’re thrilled beyond measure to introduce young children to farming in a playful and sheltered way,” says Thomas Frey, Creative Director at GIANTS Software. “With John Deere as our ideal partner for Farming Simulator Kids, we’re creating an educational and unforgettable – even inspiring – farming game for young players, one that may even nurture their general interest in farming.”
Stefan Mügge, Manager Marketing Communication at John Deere, adds, “It is a pleasure for us to support such an appealing project, which introduces children to agriculture in a playful way and awakens their interest in food production”
In addition to mini-games like gardening and sandwich making, Farming Simulator Kids offers a range of activities. Little farmers can visit their farmers’ market, trade items at a swap shop, create food items from produce, or simply relax in their house while interacting with lovable characters.
