Competitive lawn-mowing game Mowin' & Throwin' will be making its way to PC and consoles in the Spring of 2019 according to a press release from the developer. Yes, you read that right: a competitive lawn-mowing game. It certainly looks more interesting than it sounds!
The best way to understand Mowin' & Throwin' is to check out this trailer from the developer's official YouTube channel:
As you can see, Mowin' & Throwin' is all about being the best grass-cutting gnome out there. You'll have to fuel up your riding mower and try to cut all of the grass on your side of the map before your opponents do.
The challenge doesn't stop there, though: you'll be able to sabotage your enemies by throwing rocks at them or even causing more grass to sprout up on their side! Although there are surely a few basic levels, there are also a few levels with more dynamic elements. One of these levels includes a bridge that can be raised or lowered by bopping a statue on the head. Other levels include difficulties like moving terrain or a lack of any light whatsoever.
Mowin' & Throwin' currently supports local multiplayer, although the developers state that they've had success with using PARSEC for online play in both 1v1 and 2v2 gameplay. The game requires a controller to play across its many unique levels. Keyboard & mouse support for PC players will be coming in a future update as part of the game's eventual release from Steam Early Access. A single match will only take a few minutes, but this promises to be a couch co-op experience that you can enjoy for hours.
If you don't want to wait, you can grab Mowin' & Throwin' on Steam Early Access right now. Otherwise, you can expect it to leave Steam Early Access and land on consoles sometime in the Spring of 2019.
