The Ranchers: An Open World Video Game For Lovers Of Farm Life

The Ranchers

The Ranchers, an open world country life simulation game from French developer RedPilz Studio, it will be optimized for the Steam Deck and will work natively on Linux when released. A successful Kickstarter campaign has recently taken place, with backers funding the game in less than a day, proving that there is a demand for more farming simulation games.

The Ranchers is a tribute to several games like Harvest Moon, The Sims, GTA and Animal Crossing, which inspired the developer. The Ranchers combines a lot of mechanics and parts that the developer found enjoyable in a modern game that pushes the limits of the classics.

You can play solo or with up to four players online in cooperative to raise cattle in this game, which is totally offline. You'll be able to explore a town, buy vehicles like cars, trucks, and yachts, and travel through a huge open world filled with mines, shipwrecks, uncharted islands, and occasional monster run-ins. You will also be able to farm, fish, participate in sports and much more in this game.

Seems to be quite popular on Steam, with more than 225.000 people that they have added it to their wish list, which suggests that it may be a success when it is released. Whether or not, the truth is that it is always a pleasure to see that titles like this also approach the Linux world. And it is that the developer has commented for some media that he has a strategy to support Linux in the long term, which will be released shortly after the version for Windows if it does not appear on the first day. The Kickstarter campaign also indicates its intention to optimize it well for the Steam Deck, as is being done with so many games on Valve's popular handheld console.
