'Orchard' Announced

by Rainier on June 11, 2008 @ 7:19 a.m. PDT

An Orchard is a lovely place to be. Plant and harvest crops, erect useful buildings to expand your product line, create recipes, advertise and sell delicious fruit products. Turn your little family farm stand into a success in Orchard!

"Targeted at casual gaming fans, Orchard integrates business and resource management with addictive simulation play that PC gamers will find both challenging and entertaining," said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations for Majesco.

When your aunt passes away, the neglected family orchard is left to her only remaining relative -- you! Come rain or shine, it's your task to dig in and salvage the orchard from its state of disrepair and turn it into the thriving business it once was. Hire and manage workers, plant and harvest crops, construct processing and storage facilities, and advertise and sell products in your efforts to make a profit. You can also use the bounty of the orchard -- including strawberries, blueberries, cherries, grapes and apples -- to create 20 recipes from Blackberry Pie to Strawberry Fudge, all while striving to win awards and build your trophy collection.

Orchard is expected to release online and in stores holiday 2008.
