The Vegetable Patch

Youtube link | Pop Up

We're making a neat little puzzle game that's all about experimenting with a little patch of vegetables!

Playing it is like being handed a little science kit, and as you tinker you'll learn more and more about how it works so you can grow ever more impressive crops of veg in just a tiny square patch!

It's a tricky game to explain, so instead of just doing a straight up trailer we got my mum and sister in law to do a sort of infomercial for us!

The version of the build in this is work-in-progress, but I hope it'll pique your interest and maybe you'll come Like us on Facebook, just so you can hear about the development as it happens!

This looks pretty neat. How do you know when the vegetables are ripe for picking?

I like your unconventional viral too :-)

Yeah - we get a lot of comparisons to Farmville - but playing them is quite a lot different.

Our game is (in terms of your experience) closer to Doodle God timsed by Quake 3...

It's all about playing around with the ways the various elements of the game react and can be manipulated to reward you - then using your skills (all the skills are YOUR skills, not ones the game gives you) to be the most impressive gardener in the world!

The graphics looks good but how do you play? Is it time based?
