Bonfire Studios releases its first game “We Farm” for iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad

Bonfire Studios today announces the release of its first iPhone game “We Farm” . We Farm is a strategy game for iPhone where players can build their own farm and raise animals to earn rewards such as blue ribbons to progress through the game. The official description is as follows:

We Farm is a new kind of animal. Build a barnyard, raise critters and bring home the blue ribbon.

Invite your friends to take pictures with your prize-winning pig and patron businesses on your farm. Visit theirs for inspiration. And compete for the title of finest acreage this side of the Mississippi.

  • Raise horses, pigs, sheep, ducks and even ostriches, then compete for the blue ribbon at the county fair.
  • Make your farm your own with over a hundred buildings, animals and decorations
  • Plant veggies, fruit and flowers to earn your keep
  • Share your farm with your friends to earn extra coin and XP
  • If anyone has ever played FarmVille on Facebook you may find a similar expierence with We Farm but on the iPhone/Pad platform. If your interested in finding out more a video says a thousand words so take a look at this demo video demonstrating how the game works when building your first barnyard.
