“Space Farmers is our dream project” said Rich
Bawden, one half of the Bumpkin Brothers. “We’ve been
talking about it for years and we’re so excited to be finally
making it a reality.”
"As we're making a cooperative game it's all about the players
and how they react to the game," said Andy Yates, the other half of
the Bumpkin Brothers, "We can’t wait to get the game in front
of real people so it grows based on their feedback."
If you’re part of the gaming press and have any other
questions at all, we’d love to hear from you.
