We are a team of gamers united by our passion. We started designing games as a hobby a couple years ago. In order to turn our hobby to a full time job we founded Barely Functioning Studios in early 2019. We are finally ready to present to you our first game. With your help and support we hope to achieve our dream. We have a lot more projects on the way. So even if Ferman isn’t your cup of tea you keep an eye out for us.
Following the conquest of Constantinople, the city was in a state of disrepair. The Sultan wanted to restore the city and exceed its former glory as a metropolis. But he couldn’t do it alone. He needed help from the prominent merchants of the Ottoman Empire. In FERMAN, you get to play these merchants and have a chance to be the one to gain Sultan’s favor. He will task you to repair the existing infrastructure, construct new buildings and help those in need. Manage your resources and complete these Quests to get Coins, but be careful! Fermans have the potential to alter the course of the game significantly. Ferman is a fast-paced economic strategy game with worker placement elements for 3-6 players .The game takes around 30-60 minutes to complete. Aim of the game is to be the first one to get 11 Coins. Coins will primarily be earned through quests, which will require resources such as Silk and Stone. Players will need to compete amongst themselves to gather such resources, considering their supply is limited and they have one action per turn. Excess resources can be traded at the Docks, or could be turned into Coins at the Grand Bazaar. Heed the call of Sultan, and be the glorious merchant that restores Constantinople to new heights!
