Facebook’s “Pot Farm” Nominated for Video Game Award

Facebook’s hot Farmville clone for weed, Pot Farm, is up for a Canadian Video Game Award this month. Developed by Downtown East Side Games in Gastown, Vancouver B.C., the year-old simulation allows players to grow different kinds of dope in the national forest, combining a bit of “chilled out camping with a bit of gardening on the side.” It has almost one million monthly users this week, down from 1.5 million in December, when Legalization Nation estimated DES Games might be making around $150,000 per month off sales of “fertilizer” and other in-game items for the free casual title. Fans can vote up “Pot Farm” for a Canadian Video Game Award for the next 28 days.
