DESCRIPTION

The quaint meets the prehistoric when your village is propelled into the past!

Cultivate: Before time is a relaxing single player farming-meets-mystery branching narrative game.

When a time travel glitch throws your quaint English village back to prehistoric times, it’s time to start exploring! Farm and forage and solve mysteries along the way. As you explore the village, cove, prehistoric forest, caves and even under the sea, make friends and piece together the puzzles of the past.

Cultivate: Before Time is a game about community, identity, work/life balance and the nature of time. Mysteries revolve around English quaintness, sci-fi inventions and - of course - dinosaurs!

You play as Claire Potts, visiting your Inventor sister (Professor Eugenia Potts) at her farm and “Thyme Cottage”. You might feel like wandering around, taking in the country-side sights. You might want to plant some vegetables. With the help of your sister’s ingenious inventions, you’ll grow things in a matter of days.

Your visit takes an unexpected turn when the farm and village gets uprooted and thrown into prehistoric times - but don’t let that be a cause for concern. It’s a mysterious occurrence, and the first of many mysteries you’ll get to explore on your relaxing village adventure.

Now you’re in the ‘land before time’, finally, you can take the time to relax!

Cultivate: Before Time is a 2D drawn-art style game…
