A video game entirely focused on mowing lawns has received an upgrade that allows players to cut grass around the world – virtually of course.
Lawn Mowing Simulator is one of a handful of new video games taking the chores of life and making them fun.
From the new PowerWash Simulatora game where you power wash the dirt from cars and buildings, to Construction Simulatorwhere you take control of diggers and dump trucks – there’s something for everyone.
Lawn Mowing Simulator: Landmark Edition released on PlayStation and PC this week and now allows players to hop aboard a ride-on mower and maintain the Great British countryside.
There’s also a new mode that sees you trimming around T-Rex footprints, navigating herds of Brachiosaurus, and keeping up with the movements of other ‘roaming’ dinosaurs, as well as iconic locations such as Stonehenge.
Games like these are considered cozy and therapeutic by gaming communities, with entire social media channels dedicated to their simplicity.
It’s worth noting there’s more to Lawn Mowing Simulator than just mowing lawns.
Players must grow their lawn mowing empire, take up jobs, hire staff, upgrade machines, advertise, pretty much everything you need to do in real life to grow a business – minus the financial stress and fear of failure.
While that might not have the same effect as mowing the lawns of a Jurassic theme park, there are a few surprises on the stream that viewers can look out for, including download codes of the game.
The most anticipated video games of 2022 and beyond
