If you think you’ve had your fill of business simulation games like Zoo Tycoon, Rollercoaster Tycoon and every other Tycoon title then you might want to think again, as a brand-new sim is coming – and it’ll have you growing and selling marijuana.
Entitled Weedcraft Inc, the game has just been announced from devs Devolver Digital, who’ve also released a trailer for the upcoming game.
Writing on the trailer page, Devolver states that the game “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.”
If you think Weedcraft is going to be all fun and games then you might be in for a surprise, as the devs explain that this isn’t your classic stoner-friendly title. You’ll be responsible for prioritising resources, managing production and distribution, cross-breeding plants, managing your staff and taking on the competition.
Of course, there’s the legality of your chosen professional too, with the game’s page writing: “As in real life, the business of bud presents plenty of opportunity along with a plethora of problems.
“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.”
The sim is being sold as “an important, controversial topic presented in an insightful and detailed manner…
“Whether you choose to hobnob with politicians, pay off the po-po, fight for medical marijuana rights or work the legal system, it’s all in the name of the sticky icky and your cutthroat corporate profits.”
Check out the trailer above and let us know your thoughts. Will this be on your wish list for the future?
Weedcraft Inc. will release on PC sometime in 2019.
As far as business simulation games go, this is a pretty unique one…
