"John Deere American Farmer allows players to build and establish their own successful farm utilizing their planning skills and John Deere equipment, the most recognizable brand of equipment in the farming community," said Paul Rinde, Chief Executive Officer of Destineer. "It's the most authentic farming experience available besides working the fields yourself."
John Deere American Farmer offers players an overhead view of the game environment, so they can effectively build upon their land from the ground up. Players decide what crops to plant, livestock to raise, employees to hire, equipment to purchase and structures to build. As in real life, plagues, weather, market trends, employee skill level and more all play a role in determining the success of the farm.
"We wanted to create a game that was both fun for the players and realistic in terms of the decisions they make and the equipment they use," said Mike Root, President of Gabriel Entertainment. "Deere & Company was enthusiastic right from the start. Gamers will really enjoy the challenge of creating and running a working farm, as well as the authenticity provided by the incorporation of the respected John Deere equipment."
Jeff Gredvig, Director, Brand Management for Deere & Company said the company is excited about the educational aspects of the game because it provides a unique way to learn more about the importance of agriculture in the U.S. economy. "It is an opportunity to understand the significant role farmers play in the production of food and in feeding the world, and do so in a fun and engaging manner."
