What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that video games, like cannabis, are best when shared. Early Access gives us the ability to build a community while we develop Cash Crop. Our team has worked our tails off to create a uniquely fun farming tycoon/RPG for you.

With a community of like-minded feedback and support. Through pod casts, vblogs, and weekly updates, we're striving to build a passionate and engaged community dedicated to helping us create the best game possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early Access work will continue well into 2018 with a soft target for our full version 1.0 release in late 2018 early 2019.

We're committed to completing this game; making Cash Crop a deeply satisfying compelling play. Something akin to Stardew, Harvest Moon with Tycoon gameplay elements and a satisfiying cannabis twist”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our vision for Cash Crop is to become the premier casual, indie farming sim. We want to be the first game people think of when weed or cannabis comes to mind.

  • Character customization - upgrade equipment, clothing, Swag, Bling.
  • Indoor/Outdoor growing
  • Farmer, Retailer, Processor play
  • Mini-games including glass blowing, breeding and cloning, adventuring, growing weed for Bigfoot, and more.
  • Buy more Farms and property to expand your empire.
  • Strain Designer, selling plants vs selling bud
  • Heat, protestors, challenges
  • Expand to new states/markets (PNW, Cali, Las Vegas)
  • Explore Seattle and other urban scenes.
  • Pest, Disease, Inspectors, Thieves
  • Co-Op multiplayer
  • Steam Workshop/mod support.

Like real cannabis farming, Cash Crop provides an open-ended play experience. You can run a small batch, exotic farm where you hand cultivate each and every plant or a sprawling mega-farm with a hundreds of plants and a dozen staff.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Cash Crop currently has all major farming gameplay systems that will continue to be polished and improved as we move towards full release such as: plant ecology, sprinklers, and irrigation, dynamic weather effects, crew, Heat, and finances.
  • Grow dozens to hundreds of plants
  • Hand tools to hoses, trimmers, and tillers. Each piece of equipment is designed to be playful, fun, and make growing your plants a breeze.
  • Tired of doing all the work yourself? Hire a crew to water, trim, and tend to your plants for you
  • Negotiate contracts from vendors
  • Research improvements, abilities, and upgrades through the Staff tech tree.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We will gradually raise the price as we add new content and features. We want our Earliest supporters to pay the least.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We love our players! From concept to prototype, through Early Access and beyond we want to involve you in every stage of development.
  • User feedback directly solicited in-game
  • Comunity Manager to listen and respond to players and guide discussions
  • Game design, development contributions
  • Player inclusion: Become a character or business in the game!

Version 0.45.5 Summer the Plumber & A Sneak Peak

New Features
- New character, Summer! She’s the kind of plumber that makes Mario look bad. Summer starts with all irrigation techs unlocked and a small stash of cash.
- New Farm Status UI: Farm Status UI has been reworked to make Heat and Strikes more prominent. Removed some redundant text and changed the color scheme. The overall UI is smaller as well

Coming Soon
- Open stores and hire dealers. For a small investment they sell your bud so you don't have to - providing passive income but with their own twists. Keep your stores well staffed and stocked so they remain profitable while your dealers sling bud on the down-low. We plan to great expand this gameplay in the future.

- Crew AI and crew skills have seen major improvements
- Crew now use trimmers to reduce stress
- Hoses have been buffed again and water plants even faster
- Some minor GUI elements have been pruned.

Bug Fixes

Known Issues
- The Field view will not resize to accommodate VERY large plots.

About This Game

The Delightfully Fun Cannabis Farming Game!

Casual Farming Sim meets Tycoon/RPG gameplay...with Cannabis!

The year is 2017 and cannabis is the new green gold rush! It’s the wild west all over again with customers trying to get the best weed, businesses trying to make a buck, and everyone trying to stay out of jail!

The marijuana industry is going through a once-in-a-lifetime, end-of-prohibition transformation. Will you get your cut of the profits?

Cash Crop fuses the immensely popular RPG/Tycoon Farmer style of gameplay with the culture, humor, and challenges of today’s most popular cash crop!


Control your entire grow operation. Choose the strains to grow, design your irrigation and power systems. Run a small organic farm by hand, or a sprawling commercial grow with dozens of crew, multiple locations, and hundreds of plants. Choose the pace and the scale that fits your high goals.


Your plants are the heart of your farm. Caring for each of your plants is a fun rewarding challenge to keep them healthy and stress-free. From Sniklefritz to Pineapple Express, each strain has different needs and preferences. Become an expert grower by mastering the individual care of each plant.

MORE TOOLS, MORE POWER (insert grunt)

From hand tool to power tools, a variety of fun and playful equipment are available for the industrious farmer. Use hoses to water plants from a distance, and hedge trimmers to quickly harvest and tame your crops.


Do you run a squeaky-clean operation, in full compliance? Or do you risk everything for a shot at fortune? You accumulate Heat for growing more plants than you have a license for and doing business with shady characters. Too much Heat will attract protestors, inspectors, helicopter fly-bys, even DEA raids and shutdowns! Turn up the heat for a more engaging, fast-paced play! Follow all the rules and avoid risk for a more casual experience.


Growing all these plants is hard work; hire some friends to MAKE your farm flourish. When you're not directing them, crew members will move about the farm trimming plants, checking water and nutrient levels, and performing other tasks. Their skills will improve with use over time and with better equipment.


Review and apply for a variety of contracts to fulfill. Meet other farmers, store owners, bands, celebrities, and maybe even Big Foot (he loves Sasquatch OG) as you share your crop. Negotiate for every last penny or accept bottom dollar to improve your relationships.


Behind every great bud is a great team. Hire lawyers, gardeners, even street dealers as you expand your operation. Investing in your staff unlocks skills, perks, and abilities for your farm.

COMPLEX SYSTEMS: AUTOMATION MAKES YOU STRONGER (and makes it one step closer to the robots taking over)

Tired of watering by hand? Work smarter, not harder, by installing pipes and sprinklers to quickly and reliably water your plants. Timers and other control systems can be installed to make managing your crop a breeze.


Once your farm is running profitably, adventure onward. Explore Seattle, the Cascades, and more as you hunt for quests, breed new strains, expand to new markets, and find the Easter Eggs we've hidden for you. Open shop in Seattle, or start a grow in Oregon.


Future releases will include Retail and Processor gameplay. Move on from the farm and run your own chain of stores, glass shop, or an oil processing facility. Future plans also include new markets such as Nevada, California, Texas, and more. The sky is the limit!
