Town Star is a F2P competitive and continuously evolving farming P2E game. The goal is to grow, gather and craft your way to building the most efficient and productive town imaginable. The game might fools you with its cute and cartoonish graphic style, but as you get in you will notice the depth of strategies involved in striving to be a Town Star. I personally sees this game very akin to a RTS game, and a solid entertaining one at that.
The basic goal in the game is to build a sustainable production chains that the banks will keep on rolling in. However, given the various types of products available, each with different production methods and requirements, the town possibility is endless. You might want to be a rancher one time, and a cake-maker the next.
What makes Town Star unique is the cycle system which they adopts. It is a system where every week/month (depends on server chosen), the entire world is reset from scratch. This means you are more than encouraged to always try a new town build especially with the changing metas, so its less likely to cause burnout from doing the same thing repeatedly. This also means even newer players wont be too behind in term of town development. For the veterans, they are equipped with profound experiences so they do have an advantage.
The game starts by having you choose the location you want to start your town in. There are various biomes type such as Plains, Forest, Mountains. A good starting location for the beginners would be the Forest as its lush in resources.

Using this resources you are pretty much free to develop your town as you like, however there are a few points to keep in mind.
Your workers won’t work for free obviously and demands payment every 1 in real life minutes. If you don’t have enough resources to pay them then they will stop anything they are doing and refuse to work till paid. So to earn money you will need to sell stuffs.
Remember the initial 40 gasolines? Without them you wont be able to ship out your products, and thus unable to earn more money to pay your workers. This will mean the end of your town development. Thus players usually stick to a few efficient build order to quickly establish a self-sustaining gasoline production chain. You can take your time to figure it out, or you can refer to various nice builds online, for example here.
After passing the first imminent death milestone, feel free to branch out and try various strategies to expand your town! Experimenting with various build is the best part of the game, and who knows, you might just discover the golden build yet to be known!
The game is F2P, so anyone can starts playing in as soon as 3 minutes! (Tried and True XD)
