And if you couldn't guess from that headline that we were alluding to it being a marijuana business management game, then maybe you're high right now. But at any rate, yes this is a real thing.
And naturally this little gem is coming from within the disruptive but ever-creative stable of games handled by Devolver Digital. Developed by Vile Monarch (Crush your Enemies, Oh...Sir!), Weedcraft Inc looks to capitalise on the growth in the marijuana business and will be coming to PC in 2019.
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.
Would-be Mary Jane moguls will need to prioritize resources carefully as they manage the production and distribution of their weed. Cultivate killer plants, cross-breed them to create unique strains of the devil’s lettuce, hire and manage a growing staff, and be prepared to take on the competition. 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.
An important, controversial topic presented in an insightful and detailed manner, Weedcraft Inc presents a challenge to those would rule the reefer offering a series of diverse scenarios and unique characters to work with (or around) as your budding empire grows. 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.
Watch a trailer for the game embedded below, then check out an initial batch of screens.
