Purchase shops and then set the prices for your strains where you can make the most profits. Buy farms to grow your own weed. Upgrade your farms to grow better strains that sell for more money in your shops. Purchase warehouses to store your weed, send marijuana to your other facilities, or export your marijuana in bulk. Buy factories to produce packaged joints to make more profits. Can you become a Tycoon or will you go bankrupt?
In a future world where the ban on cannabis has been lifted world wide, you are free to dive into this ground breaking industry to build a business empire and become a Weed Tycoon!

As ever, your ultimate goal is market supremacy, and in order to successfully grow and distribute your product as you work through Weedcraft’s scenarios, you’ll need to hire staff, manage your resources, and keep an eye on the competition – crossbreeding and cultivating new strains of weed to stay ahead of the curve and grow your empire. If you squint a bit, you can see at least some of that in Devolver’s rather busy announcement trailer:
Weedcraft Inc. is currently scheduled to launch on PC some time in 2019.
Devolver Digital has announced Weedcraft Inc., a new tycoon game about on growing, breeding, selling, and distributing marijuana in America.
Devolver says that Weedcraft tackles its subject in an “insightful and detailed manner”, and there’s a focus on the social and political elements inherent in the game’s theme too. “Decide when and where to take on extra risk to maximize profit,” it says, “but be careful, the cops and politicians are all working their own angles.”
To that end, you’ll be able to schmooze with politicians, bribe the police, and work to change laws – campaigning for medical marijuana rights or doing whatever needs to be done to work the legal system to your advantage.
On the face of though, and despite its potentially controversial subject matter, Weedcraft Inc. doesn’t sound all that far removed from your traditional management tycoon game.
Weedcraft is the work of Polish studio Vile Monarch (who previously developed Oh Sir: The Insult Simulator and barbarian RTS Crush Your Friends), and is pitched as an exploration of “the financial, political and cultural aspects of the country’s complex relationship with this troublesome and promising plant.”
