Company Summary

Founded by veterans of both highly commercial social games and experimental independent game development, Real Filling is working on its flagship product, a social game where players can work together cultivating a complex, permaculture-style farm. Through the game, we plan on introducing players to local food producers, products like organic fertilizer, and investment opportunities in small farms looking to expand.
