Some indie game developers manage to get a hit game and gather a lot of success and fame. That is the case of Crate Entertainment, a game developer known for creating a certain ARPG games in the past. However, now they went for a completely different game genre, and it is the most interesting one we must say. Crate Entertainment is back with a new video game with which they hope to captivate once again all their followers. However, this time it is not an RPG but a medieval style City Building strategy title called Farthest Frontier.

The choice of genre is undoubtedly striking, as its popularity has declined over the years. However, it seems that during 2021 it experienced a resurrection as several titles are scheduled for release throughout the year. So, what is Farthest Frontier all about? Well, let’s talk about it!

About the game

Unlike other construction games, in this case, the goal is not to reach a modern era with skyscrapers from a centuries-old urbanization. They promise the most advanced farm system, 50 different types of buildings with upgrades, and other usual features of the genre. The population will live in real-time, so we will be able to follow their movements around the city to get the materials needed for their work.

Of course, this world is not free of threats including diseases and pandemics typical of the time. In case of deactivating the pacifist mode, there is also the risk of suffering invasions from nearby colonies. In principle, Farthest Frontier does not bring anything revolutionary to the genre, but neither did Grim Dawn, the previous most popular game from these developers, and it became a very notable game.

On the other hand, keeping our medieval villagers happy and content will not be the only challenge we will have to face. Defending the city from enemy forces will be fundamental, but we will also have to fight other less tangible threats such as plagues and diseases. In fact, Crate Entertainment points out that they have paid special attention to the latter to punish players with ailments such as cholera, dysentery, or scurvy.

The developers speak of great replayability thanks to its procedural generation for terrain and resource distribution: no two games will be the same. There are some options to control, including the amount of water or nearby mountains, while the more challenging maps offer great challenges.

Not much new, but still unique?

Farthest Frontier has really nothing in common with the previous game developed by Crate Entertainment, but it does have the same attention to detail and spirit in the development team. As we mentioned before, there really aren't many innovations to the genre, but still, they managed to polish the genre incredibly. As usual in this type of title, we will have to manage the growth of our population by securing a series of resources.

In Farthest Frontier, agriculture will play a fundamental role as it will be the main source of food for our villagers. To do this, Crate Entertainment has developed a complex system of farms in which we will have to take into account techniques such as crop rotation. And more things like this are what they did to make this game unique.

Review: 8.5/10

Farthest Frontier is an incredibly solid game, they created a game with little news to a genre that's not been that popular in years, and still managed to create a great game. Even though we have not mentioned this, the visuals in the game are incredibly good and have a good art style too.
