Single Player game (OLD)


African Farmer is available in two versions, a single player game and a multiplayer game.

In the single player game, you manage a farming household in rural Sub-Saharan Africa.

  • Decide what to grow in the fields
  • Choose your family’s diet and look after their health
  • Buy food, fertilizer and seeds from the market
  • Watch out for chance events like bad weather, disease and price rises

As the seasons change, you can see the results of your decisions and adapt your strategy.
