African Farmer is a free, open source online game that simulates the complex decisions and uncertainties faced by small-scale farmers living in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Your challenge is to manage a farming household in a village. You need to make decisions on what to grow, what to buy and how to feed your family – and then see the results of those decisions.

The game is available in two versions: a single player and a multiplayer game.
