"Tuttle: Star Flower Harvest" is an action-arcade farm-simulator focusing on growing genetically modified Starflowers, set in the distant frontiers of space, where Earth is long forgotten. Developed by Ismael Rodriguez and published by Retro Casual LLC, the game is scheduled for release on Steam on June 20, 2023.
In "Tuttle: Star Flower Harvest," players take on the role of Eloy Wilson, a gardener hired by Starflower Inc. to cultivate valuable genetically modified Starflowers in deep space. As they progress, players receive emails from various characters, including Starflower Inc. executives and the eco-activist group Pure Planet Org.
Through these interactions, players uncover the dark secrets behind Starflower Inc.'s operations and their environmental consequences. Players must choose their path, deciding whether to continue working for the corporation or join the resistance against them, ultimately determining the fate of the Starflowers and the galaxy's future.
