Crazy Plant Shop now available on Steam!

2014년 8월 4일

We've heard a number of people asking for another one of our games to come to Steam, and we're happy to announce that Crazy Plant Shop is now available!

In Crazy Plant Shop, players learn about genes and inheritance by breeding zany plants! Special requests from mysterious customers require players to understand dominant and recessive traits and how genetic traits get passed through generations. Use profits to acquire new breeds, purchase shop upgrades, and acquire new customers!

Go check it out! Thanks for all the support you've given us :)

It's Spring -- time to grow some virtual plants. Get Reach for the Sun now for the low price of $4.99!

  • Strategy mode is now available on the plant selection screen
    This mode uses a set number of turns with no time limit. Plants will automatically collect resources between turns. Keep your plant balanced and try to maximize your resources on every turn to fruit each flower before winter comes!

  • Players can now grow the prickly pear cactus
    Cacti like the prickly pear have no leaves. Photosynthesis takes place in enlarged stems, requiring a slightly different approach to growing.

  • Bees!
    We’ve added bees to replace the current pollen system. Creating nectar will now spawn a bee. Players must click and drag the bee onto a female flower to pollinate.

평가

“Concealed beneath a smooth interface, a beautiful art style, and a really fun set of core-mechanics, Reach for the Sun, while certainly a successful game for the classroom, excels even beyond through the total consideration given to its design.”
Games for Change

“GameDesk saw great value in Reach for the Sun. Its ability to demonstrate systems of plant growth and the relationship between the root structures, leaf structures, flowering structures, and pollination is remarkable.”
Lucien Vattel (Game Desk, Executive Director)

“[In an interview with VentureBeat, Mark DeLoura (White House Senior Advisor for Digital Media) picked Reach for the Sun as one of his Top 3 educational games.]”

Description

Behind all those leaves, roots, and petals is an intelligent bio-machine of starch, nutrients, and water. Take over a flower's seedling to help it grow and reproduce before winter approaches. Carefully gather and manage three key resources needed to create flowers and fruits. You'll never look at these organisms the same way again!

Key Features

  • Learn about plant anatomy and function by controlling a plant’s lifecycle for a year
  • Make strategic choices from limited resources and evaluate how it affects your plant
  • Maintain your plant’s health against external influences such as winter weather
  • Create up to four different types of plants, each with unique attributes and challenges
  • Earn upgrades to enhance your garden, such as preying mantids to control pests

I'm really glad they included Strategy Mode in a recent update, because while I'm not that fond of RTS clickfests, I had a good time with the turn-based mode. Not that long game, got all the achievments in less than 2 hours.

This is more like an 'educational' game but it is nice.It provides you various plants to grow with their different stages and things to make the game enjoyable,which it does.Actually,I would've been more happy if they didn't provided the knowledge,which OF COURSE everybody knows(like photosynthesis,chlorophyll),but still I skip those things and play it. SO,my experience with this game is good and yes I would recommend it.

A fun timekiller. I'd recommend this for anyone intersted in botany or gardening. It's a surprising thinker of a game, cute, and actually teaches you about how a flowering plant grows, if you pay attention.

Well Im torn on whether to recommend this game or not. It only takes 2 hours or so to complete the main game and unlock all the acheviements. So I would not recommend spending much on the game.

It is however, fairly interesting to play. There are two modes. "Cliassic" mode which I didnt like as its a simple clickfest as you franticly click to gather resources to continue building your plant. Then there is a "strategy" mode, which is esentially a turn based game. I enjoyed this mode much more. In this mode you plan each turn and spend your available resources all while trying to grow your plant enough to produce seeds to gain points to spend on new plants and upgrades.

Overall I do recommend this game, just know it will only take a couple hours to complete and try to grab it at a discount like I did.

I am a gardener so of course I love this game. Nice and easy going with pretty graphics and you learn something! It has the rts element for regular game mode and then the added turn based strategy mode which is a nice change up. Not a super long game, but pretty and fun for the time being. Definitely recommended, and they lowered the price, heck wait for a sale and it will be even cheaper and then definitely try it.

학습용 플래시 게임, 내지는 그러고 싶었던 게임.

흔한 타이쿤 형식 - 클릭을 통한 자원수집, 투자, 소비, 목표달성으로 구성되어 난이도는 학습용 수준이지만, 규칙도 없이 번거로운 조작과 쓸데없이 작은 히트박스(?)때문에 불편하고, 정작 무엇을 배워야 할 지 - 또는 무엇에서 즐거움을 느껴야 할 지 - 느낄때쯤 되면 게임이 끝나거나, 그런게 애초에 안 느껴지거나.

아이들에게 "식물은 이렇게 먹고 자란단다" 정도를 알려주는 용도로는 유익하나, "사실"이나 "지식"을 전달하는 데에도 다소 불량하다. 꽃이나 잎의 순서와 배치가 자연의 법칙을 무시하고 아무렇게나 짜여있다거나, 식물이 생장하면서 발생하는 균형과 불균형을 전혀 반영하고 있지 않다거나 하는 등, 온갖 문제가 산적해있다.

재미있냐고 물으면 웃지요. 학습용 게임들이 흔히 간과하는 "게임이 게임으로서 재미가 없으면 학습용 게임이 아니라 인터랙티브 교재일 뿐이다" 라는 점을 충실하게도 ! 따르고 있다...

이 게임에 이런 단어를 쓰는 것도 좀 웃기지만, "최적화"가 전혀 안 되어 있어서, 당신 컴퓨터가 아---무리 좋아도 울트라옵으로 플레이하는 것은 비추천.
