Developer: General Interactive Co.

Genres: Simulation, Strategy

Terroir is a 3D tile-based tycoon game where you manage your very own vineyard. In Terroir, you grow a variety of different grape varietals, craft your wine, and expand and manage your Chateau. You'll also have to deal with factors such as weather and random events, which can either make or break your business. Some of the game's features and mechanics include: - Choose from a selection of different grape varieties, each with their own demands - Dynamic weather system patterned after the Bordeaux wine region's climate. - Each complete playthrough lasts 60 in-game years, but Players can continue playing without contributing to their final score. - Craft wine through the game's 4 winemaking processes: Crushing, Fermentation, Pressing and Ageing. Each type of grape needs to be crafted a certain way to achieve the best results, so you'll have to learn and master each one. - Start out with a single planting tile, then expand your Chateau to up to 33 tiles, using 6 different tile types. Some tiles affect the ones around it, so placement is key. - Customize your Estate with ambient items. - CHANCE & CIRCUMSTANCE, a random event and mission system. Players can open the Mystery Box and choose between CHANCE (a random event that could either have a positive or undesirable outcome) or CIRCUMSTANCE (a mission that a Player completes for rewards, or gets penalized for failing). - Join Wine Awards for a chance to earn bonuses to your wine's value and your Estate's renown. - Clean, minimalist design and gorgeous low-poly 3D models. - Original soundtrack composed and performed by Singapore's CLARQuinet ensemble.

Terroir Reviews

Terroir is an incredibly challenging game which incorporates the strategy, farm simulation, and tycoon genres. The lovely low-poly graphics and the atmospheric soundtrack make it easy to get lost in this world, especially as there's often not much to do other than wait for the weather to change. Much of the challenge comes from the randomness of the weather, so if you don't mind failing a time or twenty, you will find a great challenge in Terroir, and might even come to a greater appreciation of a good bottle of wine.

Terroir could potentially be a fun experience, but it's a bit repetitive, a bit chore-ish, a bit lacking in depth, a bit unbalanced, and, most importantly, in serious need for a better tutorial, as it currently needs lots of work on the player's behalf in order to learn even the basics.

The pleasing art style and relaxing soundtrack certainly pull back some points for Terroir, but ultimately unless you are an absolute wine enthusiast wanting to get a taste for running your own vineyard, you may just want to check out Game Dev Tycoon.
