Lawn Mower Simulation Gets Release Date

If it wasn't already evident by the nature of posts I tend to write, I enjoy a quirky game or two. Zordix must share the same affection, as both of their DSiWare releases are about as strange as they get, and I absolutely love them for it. Their first game was Valet Parking 1989, a title in which you played as a valet in the 1980s in California, and their second game, 1950's Lawn Mower Kids, shares in this randomness, as it's a lawn mower simulation game set in 1950's.

At a certain point it no longer matters whether a game is technically good or bad. What matters is that your concept is so amazing, so unique, that some enjoyment can be gained from the title. Zordix has a talent for this, and I hope they keep on doing it.

Rambling aside, they have dated the release for their second game. If you want to share in the randomness, look for 1950's Law Mower Kids on November 4, 2011 on the 3DS eShop and DSiWare service. If you enjoy creativity in your games, this may be a title worth looking into.

Press release after the break.

1950s Lawn Mower Kids hits the Nintendo DSiWare™ service on Nintendo DSi™ and in the Nintendo eShop™ on Nintendo 3DS™ on November 3rd 2011.
We asked our fathers, mothers and grandparents about the 50s and this was what they told us. Their advice went straight into our brand new over the top cinematic trailer for the 1950s Lawn Mower Kids game coming to the Nintendo DSiWare™ service.
1950s Lawn Mower Kids is a challenging, fun game where you under severe time constraints simultaneously keep the three TNT-kids mowing. All this while avoiding moving objects, well laid tables and intricate flower beds. Your opponents will be dogs, cats, ducks, and a menagerie of people lead by Angry Old Joe. On your side is the secretive Mr Mowman and his strange but wonderful contraptions.
