Caffeinated GamesCaffeinated Games announced that its first game will be Farmlands, a PC game in the style of board and collectible card games.
Caffeinated Games describes the title as follows:


In Farmlands you build farms, plant crops, and battle for control of land. The goal of farmlands is straight forward... Increase your net worth to meet the goal of the map or have the largest net worth when time runs out. Players move around the outside of the board building farms and planting crops. If a player lands on your farm they will have to pay a toll equal to the value of the farm and its connected crops. It gets interesting when you start connect multiple farms together to combine their values. To prevent other players from connecting farms a player can initiate a battle by placing one of their crops on an opponents square. The outcome of battles between players are determined by slot machine mini games.


The collectible aspect of the game comes in with the pack of cards you are drawing your items and seeds from. During your turn you will draw items or seeds from your pack to use in the game. Seeds are used to plant crops or boost your attack in combat. Items are used to modify the behavior of things in the game. At the end of any map in single or multiplayer the player will receive additional items or seeds which they can use to customize their pack.
