'Weedcraft Inc' Comes To PlayStation and Xbox Consoles Next Week

Weedcraft Inc is a tycoon game that explores the business of producing, breeding and selling weed in America.

Weedcraft Inc delves deep into the financial, political and cultural aspects of the country's complex relationship with this troublesome and promising plant exploring the industry of producing, breeding and selling weed in America in a deeply detailed tycoon-style game where players choose how they want to approach and build their business.

Players can run smaller, mom-and-pop style businesses, but as in real life, the big opportunities often involve going the corporate route and expanding your weed empire nationally. Or, as nationally as you can manage, considering that pot remains illegal in 40 states…

Weedcraft Inc’s scenarios test both the green thumb and business sense of cannabis entrepreneurs as they decide which strains of weed to cultivate, how tweak their growing environment and soil nutrients for optimal strain quality, and when to cater to the expansive needs of the booming market’s many demographics. Business owners are free to test the law’s rigidity as they grow, playing either or both sides of the legality fence, and also strategically choosing whether to play as a scrupulous or shady business person.

In Weedcraft Inc’s first scenario, players must build and manage all aspects of their brand: strains, staff, R&D, sales, shipping, customer service, marketing, politics and both state and federal governance. With state marijuana laws in constant flux, learning to navigate the ever-shifting laws is key to your success.

Players can forge relationships with politicians, lobbyists and Instagram influencers to help influence laws that will help their business interests, as well as dig up dirt to crush their competition — all is fair in love, war, and weed empires. Careful, though. If you venture too far into grey legal territory you could end up on the wrong side of the law and see your empire crash down around you.

Just like the challenges facing today’s real-world weedtrepreneurs, Weedcraft Inc presents a complex set of systems for players to master in a format that is easy to play and doesn’t shy away from pointing out cultural, business and government hypocrisy when it comes to who wins and loses when it comes to the devil’s weed.

Key Features:

  • Play the customizable sandbox mode, 3 extensive scenarios, and a more accessible Chill Mode
  • Controversy presented with insight
  • Manage your budding business’ economy and distribution
  • Choices that matter and characters with their motivations - all surrounded by a story with humor and heart
  • Equip your grow room for the best yields and control every element of your growth. Adjust nutrition, and water, trim your plants, and breed new strains!
  • Change the laws and influence society and how the world around you perceives your product.
  • Play by the rules, break them or just bend them a little. Morality is on a sliding scale in Weedcraft Inc.
  • Hire and fire employees, disrupt the competition and the law by any means at your disposal... Or keep your enemies close and make friends. The choice is yours!

Currently available for PC (Steam), Weedcraft Inc is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on September 29, 2022.
