women scientists It’s a farm simulation game that includes science and robotics! The game draws inspiration from games like Stardew Valley, Harvest Moon, and other genre classics. In WoMen in Science you will have to create and manage your own farm using science to solve your problems. You will also be able to meet women scientists such as Marie Curie and Grace Hopper.

The new Quebec game that will be available on Steam will allow you to do this:

  • Grow plants and learn about their uses
  • farm animal breeding
  • Discover mysterious artifacts
  • Play science games
  • Learn the basics of programming
  • Choose your city’s festivals and projects
  • Build drones and robots
  • Build your own farm

The game, of course, offers all the mechanics of a typical farming simulator: farming, harvesting, herding, building, crafting, and making friends. But always scientifically: plants have effects on their neighbors, and sometimes on certain genetic traits. You can build drones and robots to help you. NPCs are inspired by real scientists. The museum’s antiquities are full of scientific stories. The skills to be unlocked are references to electronics and chemistry. One of four mini-games will teach you the basics of programming.
