Welcome back to the irradiated stompin’ grounds, y’all! Did you think you knew all there...

Welcome back to the irradiated stompin’ grounds, y’all!

Did you think you knew all there was to mutant-crop tendin’? Well, we’re here to tell you city-slickers that there’s a lot more than meets the eye with a new content update to Atomicrops – Thyme Flies! All the frantic-farming and post-apocalyptic action is getting ready to hit Xbox One with barrels-loaded and fertilizer… err… pretty stinky at this point, tbh.

Heading to town just in time for the harvest season are brand-new weapons, upgrades, and two of the hardest-working farmhands to ever step onto the cracked earth of your irradiated homestead!

Dandelion just flew in and boy are their arms tired. Well, that’s not quite right as they’ve got themselves wings that they’ve put to good use! Dandelion’s fly ability allows them to bypass bridges to access biomes that would otherwise be inaccessible from day one.

Atomicrops - Thyme Flies

Just in time (hooboy, we’re never going to get sick of that one!) arrives Thyme and their porky pig-pal. Thyme’s whole schtick is a little different from the norm – Days drag on longer with them around, giving you more precious, additional time with your crop-babies. A word of caution: as soon as Thyme takes a hit, your day will suddenly shorten right up! Stay out of the blast zone to allow yourself extra breathing-room to grow crops, whoop butts, and explore the area with your pig companion.

Atomicrops - Thyme Flies

Add in a host of new weapons (did we mention the word “Flamethrower”?), a shiny new Tunneler Tractor to help you get back to your garden in a flash, and a smorgasbord of new-fangled upgrades and you got yourself a hoedown! The free Thyme Flies patch is live now on Xbox One for everyone to muss about with! For full notes on the additions to Atomicrops, visit atomicrops.com.

You own the last farm in the post-apocalypse wasteland, inherited from your late grandfather’s will mere moments before the surrounding countryside gets vaporized in a nuclear blast. Now as the only source of food for the local town, and constantly under threat from the local mutant wildlife, you do as any self-respecting farmer would: Farm. Marry. Kill.

Atomicrops is an action roguelite farming simulator. Armed with your hoe, a watering pail, and a fully automatic weapon, you must grow ultra-GMO crops to feed the local town… and make a hefty profit. Defend your land from the mutant pests and bandits that invade nightly to ravage your fields. Court and wed townsfolk to fight and farm by your side. Gather upgrades to increase yields, profit and power. Befriend the local wildlife to help with the chores.
