Looking at forager

I have been playing this fun game called forager, where you can go around and farm for materials and fish. The game is neat. It is an idle survival game, but you can do more. Build land, level up, fight monsters, wear items.

When I first saw the game. The art style of pixels kept me away for a long while, but I had some money and was lucky to get the game when it was on sale. But enough of that. I should talk about the game.


When first playing forager, the game is anything but easy. You are low on resources, and the game is moving at a slow pace. There is not much to do when trying to, besides farm EXP by chopping trees for wood, mining ores for coal, iron, gold, and fishing. You can build forages that can turn wood to coal or ores to bars of iron or gold.

The game does pick up the pace after you level up and start having the ability to turn the ore into bars or wood into coal. When you start to get more levels and perks, the game will begin to speed up, and you will feel progress get made, rather than waiting around.

Forager has a lot of depth to it. The game may seem simple, but there is a whole lot to find. As for me, I have a gold sword and gold pickaxe and have unlocked a few islands. The game is worth buying. I was thinking about live streaming forager on my twitch since the game is very relaxing, from what I played.

My only issue with the game is, it slows down a lot when Firefox is open and playing a video. This game is, as far as I know, the only game to do something like this. It goes from 60 FPS to 30 FPS. And if Firefox is not playing a video or is closed, it’s back to 60 FPS, which I don’t understand the reason for why it happens.


And forager was meant to be played with keyboard and mouse. You can use a controller to play forager, yes, but the only thing I found to be annoying is the auto-target will aim for anything in range, and trying to avoid hitting a raft or something you made can be an annoying task.


But besides that. Forager is anything but a bad game. Maybe down the line, I might change my tune, but as of now, I enjoy the game so far. That’s all I wanted to say about this game.
