Last Day of Work, an independent game studio specializing in sophisticated casual games for the mainstream player, recently announced the release of Plant Tycoon for Windows and Mac OS X. The Mac version should be available for download beginning today, September 11th.
The gardening simulation lets players breed and crossbreed plants while they search for the six Magic Plants of the island of Isola and build a simple backyard garden into a lavish nursery empire. Players begin Plant Tycoon with just soil, water, and a handful of seeds. As they carefully tend to their virtual plants, they're rewarded with an array of exotic blooms. Part of the fun and mystery of Plant Tycoon is that gameplay is in real-time, so plants grow even when players aren't at their computers playing. This allows for new surprises every time the game is turned back on.
"We've been having fun creating Plant Tycoon, and we're delighted that there is so much excitement surrounding its launch" said Arthur Humphrey, CEO and Lead Designer of LDW. "We tried to create a casual game that is not just gardening-themed, but that has a core gameplay element really about gardening." Plant Tycoon carries a retail price of $19.95 and requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, 96 MB of RAM, and 32 MB of VRAM. A free trial is available for download at the official site at the link below.
Plant Tycoon features include:
Over 400 different species of plants to discover. Introducing pruning to customize the look of your creations. Dozens of exotic seed varieties, to plant and breed A wide variety of collectible butterflies, spiders and other bugs. Gorgeous, all new artwork with detailed dynamically-generated plants. A well-stocked gardening lab offers new chemicals for fun experimentation. Numerous purchasable items allow players to customize their nursery with fountains, statuettes, and more.
