First of its Kind View-to-Play Farming Swiper
Helsinki, Finland – October 29th, 2015 – Futureplay Games, a newly founded mobile game studio formed by a group of games industry veterans in Helsinki, announced today that it is bringing its debut title Farm Away! to the App Store on November 5th. Farm Away! is a compelling idle farming swiper in which players tap and swipe to cultivate cute animals, crops and virtual riches – even while they’re away.
Introducing a new category of view-to-play games – broadly accessible gameplay with a natural and rewarding ad-based monetization – FarmAway! includes polished visuals and sounds for both online and offline mobile gaming. With its social game play, players can bring their friends into their farms as hired hands. The game is simple to play: while growing crops players will make millions, billions, even trillions and beyond – the more advanced the farming strategy the better the results. The main goal of the game is to earn money, upgrade the farm, discover new plants and animals, and finally exchange harvests at the market for special seeds that boosts your next harvest season. Farm Away! features easy and intuitive “swipe-to-collect” mechanic where players collect huge amounts of profit with a single swipe.
“We see great potential in Farm Away! and look forward to seeing how this new type of ‘view-to-play’ game play will be received by players,” said Jami Laes, CEO of Futureplay Games. “We believe this genre of fast and simple idle games is now on the rise and will become even more popular in the future.”
Players also have the power to control the weather – make it rain and shine to increase production yields and multiply rewards. Farm buildings can be upgraded for profit boosts with diamonds gained for free by leveling up or purchased with In-Application Purchases. App updates coming soon this year will bring more animals and crops – collect & upgrade them to personalize the farm and further improve production.

Farm Away! is launching on the App Store globally on November 5, 2015. The game is currently only available in Canada, Finland and Thailand. Farm Away! will be available as a free download on iOS devices, and localized in 10 languages including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Japanese, Chinese (Simplified & Traditional) and Korean.
