Cultivation is a game about the interactions within a gardening community

Cultivation is a game about a community of gardeners growing food for themselves in a shared space.Cultivation is quite different from most other games. It is a social simulation, and the primary form of conflict is over land and plant resources---there is no shooting, but there are plenty of angry looks. It is also an evolution simulation. Within the world of Cultivation, you can explore a virtually infinite spectrum of different plant and gardener varieties.All of the graphics, sounds, melodies, and other content in Cultivation are 100% procedurally generated at playtime. In other words, there are no hand-painted texture maps---instead, each object has a uniquely "grown" appearance. Every time you play, Cultivation generates fresh visuals, music, and behaviors.

  • OpenGL
  • Mouse
  • Recommended:
  • 3D card that can render OpenGL
  • 400 MHz or faster processor
  • Stereo headphones
  • Notes:Development and testing took place on a 250 MHz PPC computer without a 3D accelerator card (in other words, using software OpenGL rendering). Cultivation is actually playable on a meager system like this, though it runs a lot smoother on a faster computer with a 3D card.If you have an older computer, you may be able to improve Cultivation's performance by disabling some of the more complicated graphical features. Open the included file features.txt with a text editor (changing a "1" to a "0" will turn a given feature off).DownloadsPlay instructions are included with your download. Cultivation also includes an in-game tutorial. [/l][/l][/l][/l]
