Hi everyone,

Carla put up a sneak peek of Plant Tycoon on YouTube.

It doesn't show all the game screens, but it gives a little peek at some of the plants. We are creating them generatively from a large catalog of little plant pieces, and the resulting variety and look of the plants is certainly amusing me. The plants take several hours to grow to maturity, before they can be cross-pollinated with each other.

The game, like Fish Tycoon, is a 'genetic tinkering' game, with 'tycoon' economic elements. It will be released in Sept.

Looks cool!
I bet this game will be another hit like Fish Tycoon and Virtual Villagers! :)

Is it going to be like VV in "real time"?

Looks very nice indeed. Having a large variety of possible plants, not just a few fixed ones, is a great idea. Oh, and the cross-pollination is a cool idea too.

Yup looks like another winner.
