App description: Mowing, the American pastime. Work at your job all day, drive an hour or two home, then mow the grass on your day off. NOW you can also mow in those little casual moments that are oh so precious! Just a cathartic mow, nothing more, nothing less. Art imitates life!

Mower plays with the concept of the "minimal game", leveling, grinding, and gold-farming, conflating it with our tech-obsessions and the suburban lifestyle.


-Endless mowing!
-A birds-eye view of life!
-An endless horizon!
-Create crop circles!
-Make your own Nazca Lines!
-Gameplay as self-reflexive commentary!

*Keep track of how high you've flown.
*Keep track of how far you've mown.
*Keep track of how long you're pwnd.

Navigate with your thumb, tilting the phone to steer.
Save screenshots of your mowing patterns.

Right up there with virtual sheep-shearing. I think they need to add a new genre in the App Store for games that emulate the parts of life that don't need it
