    Do you have to watch the grass grow between mowing sessions? That sounds really dull like... well... something dull but I can't think of anything.

    Sounds like a cute idea tbh. However I do not think I would ever part with money myself for such a game.

    Someone else made a thread abnout this a few weeks ago.

    I like Sim games as much as the next person, but I don't know if a Lownmower sim can be anything more than a novelty. Though i'm happy to be proven wrong...

    Showing my age, but I used to have a game called Hover Bover by Jeff Minter on the Commodore 64 which basically was mowing lawns with a Hover Mower. Not a simulation but quite a fun game for its time.

    Well, I think it wouldn't be developed if there weren't a target audience, especially a group which called for this kind of game.
    The screenshots and trailers look nice and I'll watch the progress further. I hope this kind of effort goes into the BR 147 since it is a awesome loco :)

    If goat simulator can be a thing and be successful (I think it was anyway), lawn mower simulator can be too lol, hell I'd buy for the sheer curiosity of how a insane idea like this would work in execution.......

    They'd better include a flying mower as an easter egg.

    I spend enough of my life behind a non-simulated mower as it is.

    I did that last week opening a tin of tuna. Had hold of the lid id just cut open, in my thumb and fore finger and had a spasm due to carpal tunnel, and grabbed it hard as it slipped from my hand taking the end of my finger :/ And getting wrong for repeatedly shouting an inappropriate word for a ladies bits.

    Actually thinking about it. Back then, I used to spend every free minute riding my bike or playing computer games. And now. all these years later ...... I spend every free minute riding bikes or playing computer games. The only thing that's changed are they toys are better.

    I had and still have an Amiga 600 with Flimbo's Quest along with quite a few games which got ported over to Megadrive (Lotus Turbo Challenge being one of them).
    And yes, we did play on the street with bikes, footballs etc which a lot of kids these days won't do as they're too interested in their iPads, Xboxes etc.


    Ahh yes. I remember that episode. It was from season 1 where Peggy goes to the Dallas Boggle championship and it was Boomhauer virtually cut his fingers off.

    Tried the demo today. Very dry, but great game play on Xbox Series S.

    The game is terrible in every way. Poor optimization, many bugs, twitchy picture, extremely awkward controls, terrible game camera. Boring locations and very weak graphics (in which even the grass looks like plasticine).

    When I first turned оn the game, my expectations were low. I've been burned by this genre too many times, and the lawnmower simulator remains in my head as the complete opposite of what a lawn care game should be. But most of the components offered in the Lawn Mower Simulator are what they should be. When the game starts, you choose an avatar, choose his clothes, and then choose one of two lawnmowers to start your business. But in general, thanks to this game, I know which grass is better for me to plant so that my lawn is good. I even chose several grass varieties on the platform https://www.growgardener.com/the-5-best-kentucky-bluegrass-seeds-for-your-lawn /, and I plan to grow them on mine.

    Can't y'all just cut your own grass if you have a lawn?
