Farmville developer Zynga released one update that nearly slipped underneath our radar, late this week. The following message was added to the news posts that sit underneath the game window:
Right now, Farmville farmers can “master” each crop by simply planting a whole lot of it. The only material reward is a crop mastery sign. Based on this teaser, it sounds like crop mastery is about to get much more interesting.
The note states that mastering crops will earn players”a bounty of bushels to sell in your market stalls” and that these crop bushels can be used to “create pies, perfumes, and more!” Exciting! The introduction of Farmville market stalls is a potentially huge game update – other farming games, most notably Country Life, allow players to actually do things with the crops they harvest, like turn them into jams, feed them to animals, etc. Could a similar feature be coming to Farmville?
