Have you spent way too much time playing the original? Farm village way back in its heyday? Well, now your last chance to get one last minute of retro farming. The original Farm village will stop after today (December 31
Believe it or not, Farm village is now eleven years old. Even more surprising is that you can still play the original game – at least one more day. Zynga, the company behind it Farm village, closed in-app purchases last November. And it’s not that the whole game concept is dead; Farm village has several sequels already. But they are not the same.
But it feels like an end to the early internet, and especially the early Facebook days. Eleven years ago, there wasn’t much to do or see on Facebook, and Farm village was almost THE reason to visit the site. Poking your friends just got you so much entertainment. With the game’s built-in limits to encourage daily visits and the urge to spend money, it increased quite quickly. And crashed not long after.
If you fondly remember your farm and want to harvest it one last time, go now. It is too late when the new year arrives.
