Today, LBC Studios announced that Hempire has arrived globally!


LBC Studios to release their highly-anticipated love letter to the weed community on 4/20 (but it’s out now, so tell your friends/readers!)

April 6th, 2017, Vancouver, BC – Hempire https://www.hempiregame.com, is the most realistic, green-friendly business simulator crafted with care and adoration for their audience. Today, LBC Studios announced that Hempire has arrived globally on Apple’s iOS App Store, and Google’s Play Store! While tradition UA and marketing will kickoff for the big show on April 20th!! The game features real-life brands, pays tribute to marijuana icons, and gives players the coolest tools to grow their way to weed supremacy.

THE ULTIMATE WEED GROWING GAME. It doesn’t just stop at the pot: you must harvest your plants, breed new and unusual strains, make friends (and enemies), and eventually take back control of your entire home city in order to be victorious. Hempire is a story-driven joint, so get ready to deal with corrupt cops and shady businessmen, while also helping old ladies bake brownies and your cousin fight off those restless nights! For real.

GROW REAL-LIFE CANNABIS STRAINS starting from the classics like Northern Lights and Chemdawg. Use the lab to breed and discover new strains and remain at the top of the industry. Craft extracts like hash and shatter, and edibles like cookies and brownies. Customize your grow-op with new equipment, lights, and generators as your business grows. Complete deals with game characters to unlock new features and strains. Generate huge stacks of cash by selling your product in the dispensary. Invest your money in local businesses and real estate and develop your city. Start with one bud and grow your business, your Hempire, into a billion-dollar enterprise.

HEMPIRE CUP. Compete against other players to breed the highest-quality strains, and take home the Hempire Cup.

“We’re really familiar with the industry … for many years prior to this we watched it develop and witnessed the public opinion shifting, which is when we realized that this audience deserves an outstanding game.” says LBC Studios President Dennis Molloy. “We envisioned a high quality experience with clean graphics and depth of gameplay, far more aware than what was on the market at that time.”

“We wanted to build a quality mobile game that brings together the community of cannabis enthusiasts and those curious about the emerging culture in a meaningful and relevant way. And most importantly it had to be FUN.” Solon Bucholtz CEO, LBC Studios
