The thrill of virtual lawn mowing is currently available at no cost courtesy of the Epic Games Store.

Developed by Skyhook Games, Lawn Mowing Simulator is a self-explanatory title that allows players to “experience the beauty and detail of mowing the Great British countryside” and “ride an authentic and expansive roster of real-world licensed lawn mowers from prestigious manufacturers” while engaging in a lawn mowing business.

Among the highlights of Lawn Mowing Simulator are a “physically authentic” lawn mowing experience, one that’s rounded off by “accurate and attentive” business management and more.

PHYSICALLY AUTHENTIC LAWN MOWING EXPERIENCE
Execute ground checks, set your blade height, and measure your engine load as you complete a variety of contracts across Career Mode, Free Mode or Challenge Mode. Take your mowing further with several attachments from stripe rollers, mulching kits, grass collectors, recyclers, flail decks and more.

BEAUTIFUL RURAL BRITISH COUNTRYSIDE
Lawn Mowing Simulator is set in a beautiful British countryside town. Busy residential streets, vast castle grounds, quaint cottage greens, and large equestrian fields are just some of the locations that await your mowing blades.

REAL WORLD LICENSED MOWER MANUFACTURERS 
Toro, SCAG and STIGA front line Lawn Mowing Simulator with their real-world machines painstakingly re-created visually and physically. 12 Mowers are available in the base game, each with their own challenges, attachments and upgrades to pursue.

ACCURATE AND ATTENTIVE BUSINESS MANAGEMENT
Build your own lawncare business from the ground up. Purchase and upgrade your headquarters, hire employees, purchase advertising and balance the books as you grow and expand your business.

Epic Games Store users have until August 4, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. (EST) to claim a free copy of Lawn Mowing Simulator. The game normally costs $19.99 and features two add-ons in the form of Dino Safari and Ancient Britain, both of which cost $4.99.

Skyhook Games’ other projects include various Train Simulator and Train Sim World 2 add-ons.

The Epic Games Store’s next freebie is Unrailed!, a co-op multiplayer game in which players build train tracks “across endless procedurally generated worlds.”

  1. Ummmmmmmm.... What the [redacted]?

    How could a [redacted] game about [redacted] mowing the [redacted] [redacted] lawn even be a thing?

    Then again, years ago, I saw a Steam game about showering with your dad. See: https://store.steampowered.com/agecheck/app/359050/ in case anyone thought I was off my rocker (well I am but doesn't mean I'm wrong).

    Or is this like fishing in MMOs? Where a lot of people like doing it - it just isnt my 'earl grey hot?'
  2. Literally, watching the virtual grass grow.
    Ugh... one of my most hated things to do.
    Yeah where we live is mostly desert/drought so I let the lawn in the backyard that came with the house die off years ago. It was sod and took me close to 3 years to finally pull up all the netting. Now there's some patches of wild grass that has survived and is seasonal. Recently though, alfalfa has been going crazy taking over the whole yard but I've been leaving it for a bit so the honey bees and other critters can enjoy before I mow it all down again.
  3. The graphics are better of you mow my lawn, and I'll öet you do that for free too :p
    *sigh*

    My son paid money for this, and I can't pay him enough money to mow the yard in real life.

    Maybe if he could live stream mowing the lawn on twitch? :P
