General Interactive Co.‘s tile-based tycoon game Terroir is all about the wine business it brings to GOG.
What’s more relaxing than sipping on a glass of wine in front of the fireplace and reading a good book? Seeing the vineyard grow and tasting the fruit of one’s labor might be more work, but also more fulfilling in the long run. This is what Terroir encourages the player to do: managing his/her own wineyard, growing a variety of grapes, crafting the wine, while expanding the estate.
This all comes at a cost, though, as weather conditions and random events that can have positive or negative effects, change things up a bit. Learning about the individual processes like crushing, fermentation, pressing, and ageing is a bonus, too, and even essential when one wants to master each grape. By using tiles, one can expand the estate and, as in a board game, placing them is key to maximize one’s crop. With Wine Awards, one also has specific goals that can further boost income and production. All presented in a minimalist but beautiful art design of low-poly 3D models, this still retains a sense of relaxation despite all the hard work that has to be put into it.
Terroir is out now DRM-free on GOG with a 25% launch discount that will last until September 19th, 4pm UTC.
