I became addicted to the simulation game House Flipper after actress Felicia Day began playing it on her channel late last year. Especially as it was a relaxing thing to sit down to on a Saturday night, and watch her buy, do up houses and then sell them.
Silly stuff you don’t have to concentrate on that much.
So, when the Garden Flipper DLC for the game was released this week, I was just about beside myself. Especially as Felicia plans on playing it this coming week.
But, being the ever impatient gamer I am, I can’t really wait for her to get started. Not as I plan on buying the Garden Flipper DLC myself next week.
That’s why I’ve been watching Many a True Nerd‘s three-hour 45 minute long Garden Flipper gameplay video this afternoon to see what Garden Flipper adds to the base House Flipper game.
And to see what Jon (aka Many a True Nerd), and his partner Claire, design in their garden.
Jon’s garden design was not just of his own making, however, but was also helped along by suggestions from folks in chat, as he originally played Garden Flipper while streaming.
They included a moat around his house created from a number of large ponds, bridges, flamingos, gnomes, cat houses, a gazebo and other weird things that would probably look more at home in a Florida retirement community.
In other words, not a garden I would want to relax it. But, yes, the result is typical Jon, and it is fun to watch him build it.
Besides, the game’s AI doesn’t seem to care whether you renovate a house and put in a gorgeous garden, or something that is as weird as hell. If the right people come along, someone will always buy it.
Watch Many a True Nerd’s Garden Flipper gameplay video below if you would like to see if the new DLC adds enough features to the base game to be worth the money (hint, it does!).
Jon’s video itself is over 3 hours and 45 minutes long, and goes over most of the features you get in the new Garden Flipper DLC.
You can watch him check out the garden path materials, all the different styles of fencing, lighting, bridges, grass, plants, trees, flowers, garden sheds, gazebos, garden grills, kids’ play equipment and every other feature Garden Flipper allows you to place on the land surrounding your house.
And yes, you can currently buy Garden Flipper on Steam.
Before you do, though, note the mixed reviews the DLC is getting, as it does seem to have a lot of bugs that need to be fixed before every feature in the DLC runs smoothly. Then make your purchase decision based on that.
