Weedcraft Inc Announced! A Game About Building Your Reefer Empire

Weedcraft Inc Announced! A Game About Building Your Reefer Empire

Do you like weed? Scratch that… you don’t have to answer that. Devolver Digital just announced Weedcraft Inc, slated for release in 2019 for the PC. Grow weed, sell them.. and maybe change the world? Check out the trailer below…

Weedcraft Inc explores the business of producing, breeding and selling weed in America, delving deep into the financial, political and cultural aspects of the country’s complex relationship with this troublesome and promising plant.

That trailer… it doesn’t help. Someone must have cut that video while smoking some. For sure. So the trailer is light on gameplay but the description shed some light about this supposed tycoon game.

Not only will you have to manage your plants and grow them. It’s more than simply an Animal Crossing for grown ups. No sir!

Decide when and where to take on extra risk to maximize profit, but be careful, the cops and politicians are all working their own angles.

How you approach the legal issue of marijuana is up to you. Perhaps bribe the coppers or work with politicians to lobby for legalising it.

A piece over at Mashable sheds more light with a hands on.

I needed some soil, seeds, and ample lighting to get the grow going. It felt like one of those clicker-type games like Cookie Clicker, making sure the plants were watered to grow them faster and trimming them when necessary.

Oh boy. That sounds… not too enthralling. So there’s a lot of tinkering with things to get to the perfect balance. Cultivating plants will require balancing the use of resource such as electricity… to be just right.

The article goes on to mention that the game kept throwing new and more things to manage as the game progressed. Which could be a good thing or… living hell.

It’s still very early and I’m cautiously optimistic. While the devs, Vilemonarch, says they are going for realism in terms of weed growing and the business of it all, they previously worked on a casual strategy game.

It was a good casual strategy game (Crush Your Enemies), but I’m just not sure how hardcore tycoon Weedcraft will be. Yes the reference to clicker games doesn’t help.

Regardless, we’ll see how things go with Weeedcraft Inc in 2019.
