Farthest Frontier is a town-builder game by Crate Entertainment.
Protect and guide your people as you forge a town from untamed wilderness at the edge of the known world


Protect and guide your people as you forge a town from untamed wilderness at the edge of the known world. Harvest raw materials, hunt, fish and farm to sustain your advancing town. Produce craft items for villagers to trade, consume, equip and fight with as you battle for your survival against the elements and outside threats.

Key Features
  • Harvest, Grow, Craft - Harvest raw materials, forage for food, grow crops and craft dozens of items to consume, equip, trade and defend your town with. Over 60 items total.
  • Build and Advance - Construct 50 different buildings as you grow your town from a fledgling settlement to a bustling city. Your town center and housing will advance through multiple tiers as the prosperity and desirability of your town increases. Upgrade production buildings to increase efficiency and enable production of more advanced items.
  • Fend Off Would-Be Invaders - Progress from wood palisades to stone walls, build towers and barracks, recruit and equip soldiers in the defense of your town as rising prosperity attracts the attention of raiders seeking plunder.
  • Most Detailed Farming System Ever - Choose from a variety of crops with different characteristics and configure crop rotations to maintain soil fertility, avoid heat and frost damage, and prevent the accumulation of diseases. Cultivate your fields to improve them over time and provide the ideal growing conditions for your crops.
  • All Them Old-Timey Diseases! - Ensure your villagers have clean water to stop outbreaks of dysentery and cholera. Collect berries and plant greens to prevent scurvy. Make sure villagers are properly shoed and clothed to reduce chances of contracting tetanus and rabies. Perhaps most importantly, manage rodent populations by collecting waste, securely storing food and employing rat catchers to ward off the feared bubonic plague. Over a dozen exciting ailments and diseases to contract!
  • Environmental Interaction - Develop your economy based on which resources are locally abundant and produce items for trade to acquire that which you lack. Erect fencing to keep deer away from crop fields and stop bears from raiding food storage. Manage tree cover to prevent underground water supplies from drying up. Balance the need to clear land for agriculture around vital natural resources like wild growing medicinal plants and forage items.

Steampage is up

will launch in Early Acces
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“Probably 4-8 months, depending on how much we feel the need to alter gameplay systems or add to the scope of the game before we're ready to call it finished.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“Protect and guide your people as you forge a town from untamed wilderness at the edge of the known world. Harvest raw materials, hunt, fish and farm to sustain your advancing town. Produce craft items for your villagers to trade, consume, equip and fight with as you battle for your survival against the elements and outside threats.
*All listed features will be working when we release in EA.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“The core systems and features are currently working and there is 10+ hours of gameplay. Players start off with settlers in the wilderness and progress through 4 tiers of town-building and defense against raider incursions. We may elect to expand the game from here but all the features described in the "about" section are working in-game now, some just needing refinement to be considered release-ready.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“Pricing will probably not change.”
