Grow the Seed puts an incredibly intriguing spin on farming by introducing a deck-building strategy element to the mix! Instead of using your cards to deal damage, shield yourself, and cast spells, you use the deck to grow a plant. Start with a seed and nurture it to grow into a fruit-bearing tree. Use utility cards to perform tasks to raise your seedling. Grow, cut parts from the plant, and manipulate the surroundings through your deck of cards. You also use your cards to overcome obstacles and events like bad weather and pests to ensure the safety of your plant.
Your deck is necessary for everything in Grow the Seed. Want to direct the roots to grow deeper in search of water? Or perhaps you want more leaves to grow so the plant can photosynthesize? Whatever you want your plant to do, you need a card for that! There’s also more challenging stages where you can choose different seeds and areas to grow in. Each has their own requirements and challenges to overcome.
Grow the Seed is listed on Steam, where you can add it to your Wishlist and download a demo! However, there is no release date listed yet.
Capybarista is an adorable cafe management game by developer YarnCat Games. You’re the new owner of a very cozy little cafe. Design, decorate, and run the cafe in a low-stakes environment.

Tavern Manager Simulator from developer One More Time focuses on rebuilding, expanding and improving a tavern. You take over an old, abandoned tavern in a fantasy kingdom town with the goal of restoring it to its former glory. Take a hands-on approach with the restoration by clearing away debris, wiping up cobwebs, and cleaning up lingering dust. Buy new furniture and decor to make the place inviting, but don’t spend all your money at once. You need to buy food and drink supplies to run the tavern!
Not only are you in charge of renovations, but Tavern Manager Simulator has you in charge of cooking and serving customers too! Order quality ingredients, then turn them into tasty meals for your patrons. Chop up some steaks and grill them over an open flame. Toss some veggies in a cauldron to make a delectable soup. The more you cook, the better your skills become. Just make sure you practice proper time management. Your patrons expect beer and food as fast as possible, and your profits depend on their happiness.
Run your tavern successfully and you just might become world-famous!
