Bamberg, April 11 2014. The successful farm simulation My Little Farmies ( receives a new feature: upjers, developers and publishers of free-to-play browser games, have introduced a guild-system to their game. New and thrilling tasks are now awaiting all virtual farmers.

My Little Farmies boasts another fantastic feature: starting now, the game’s players can join forces in guilds. The Hanseatic League this feature is based on used to be a confederation of merchant guilds, and as such was the most influential commercial and defensive union in all of Europe for hundreds of years. Now, the players of My Little Farmies can follow in the footsteps of these successful merchants.

Players, who join their own guild, will automatically receive the title of “alderman”. The aldermen’s assistants can be made “consul” or “assessor”, while all further members are merchants. As a union of merchants, the guilds are important trading partners of the king, who will be asking for new goods each week. Together, the guild-members can produce, collect, and donate the required goods the king asks for. This will keep flooding the guild with points and thus increase its status. The best guilds may also gain statue-pieces, and, needless to say, their guild’s kontor, found at the top of the screen, will keep growing.

Game designer Felix Vogel explains why he chose the Hanseatic League as social element for My Little Farmies:

My Little Farmies’ players love managing their own economic systems. Up until now, they have focused entirely on their own towns. United, however, they can be even more successful. The Hanseatic League is a great example of that, as it used to be a highly influential union of cities. Plus, the setting is ideally suited to My Little Farmies, which is also set in the Late Middle Ages.“

My Little Farmies’ guild feature ( is available to players as of now. The browser game is playable for free, but offers its players optional bonus features and items available for purchases.
