Farm Game

By  | 

Nothing runs like a Deere, even on your PC.

Now, computer jockeys can be virtual farmers.

"John Deere American Farmer" is a new computer game that lets players sow digital crops, milk computerized livestock and raise cyber-barns.

It's the first game licensed by the Illinois-based Deere and Company, makers of the famed green and yellow tractors.

A Deere spokesman says the game provides a unique way to learn about the importance of agriculture to the U.S.

The $20 game simulates everything from market prices to the occasional plague.
