Mere moments after inheriting your uncle’s farm an atomic bomb wipes out all civilization except your irradiated farm. If you’re going to survive this you’re going to have to be prepared to get your hands dirty.
To celebrate the launch of Atomicrops we wanted to welcome you to the new world with a few handy tips, so you don’t get cornfused and killed.
1. Harvest every day
Harvest every single day! Harvesting crops is the only way you make money in this game, and money is the only way you can purchase better weapons or progress further into new environments, so it is imperative that you spend time farming.
2. Don’t get eaten
Radiation hasn’t been kind to everything in the wasteland and it’s a mutated buffet out there. The trick to survival is to notice when something is coming at you with an open mouth and a hungry look in its eyes. We always find it’s useful to keep shooting and moving.
3. Make farmyard friends
Out there in the wasteland you’ll come across various farm animals. Aside from being majestic creatures, they’ll help to automate farming which allows you to concentrate on killing enemies and finding more seeds. Cows automatically water crops for you while you’re away, saving you from having to run back and forth to your farm, whilst Pigs till soil and help expand your farm without needing to use shovels. Be sure to keep an eye out for other friendly creatures too.
4. Find love on the battlefield
Having a partner during these troubled times is really beneficial! You can court and marry different partners, each with their own skills. These corny companions will help tend your farm, give you extra items and even help you in the heat of battle.
How do you get married? Grow roses and give them to potential partners when you visit town at the end of each night!
5. Pet the cat
It won’t do anything, but it’s super cute and it’s one of the few things trying not to eat you.
