🏆 2023 Playdate Community Awards: Best Sim/Strategy Game Winner!

Words from the developers - "Creating Factory Farming was both a journey of exploration to the limits of the Playdate's hardware capabilities and the challenge of presenting an understandable user interface on such a tiny screen with so few buttons. The limitations of the Playdate guided me to focus heavily on the core mechanics that make factory games so enjoyable: logistics-based puzzle-solving, where each solution unlocks another layer of complexity and challenge. I was thrilled when I first got my Playdate and could watch it simulate large factories in the palm of my hand, and I'm truly honoured to be awarded the best simulation/strategy game for 2023!"
