by Rainier on May 17, 2019 @ 9:30 a.m. PDT

Based on the Discovery TV series, Moonshiners you will build your own moonshining empire in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains and flood the area with the best moonshine in years.

You are toasted. The bloody bank is trying to take your land, you don't have a penny in your pocket, and there's no work for someone like you here. There is only one thing nobody can take away from you - 200 years of a family tradition of making moonshine. Your old Pa taught you everything he had learned from your grandfather. You get the rusty apparatus of your old man from the garage and start a new life as a moonshiner...

Moonshiners The Game is based on famous Discovery TV series of the same title and takes audiences into the exciting world of craft whiskey, diving into the woods of Appalachia where men and women are keeping this centuries-old tradition alive by defying law, rivals and nature. Now, fans of the show can step into their shoes through the Moonshiners game. The game will revive the most iconic moments and locations from the television series and blend it with completely new scenarios and characters.

In the Moonshiners game, you will build your own moonshining empire in the heart of the foggy Appalachian Mountains and flood the area with the best moonshine in years. You will make risky decisions which will help you mislead the stroppy minions of the law and the Feds! Any mistake can cost you your freedom or beating from the moonshine competition! Moonshiners will introduce you to the unknown world of true American freedom. Moonshiners, smuggling of hooch, forest stillrooms... and this all tax-free! As an old proverb of moonshiners states, if you can't handle something with money, you can handle it with Moonshine! Moonshiners is a fully-blown moonshiner simulator - make Moonshine, take part in exciting arcade challenges under pressure of time and enjoy witty dialogues full of the provincial American humor.
