Renegade Game Studios is kicking off 2020 with some new announcements, and their most recent reveal puts the spotlight on a brand new IP titled Succulent. Succulent, designed by J. Alex Kevern, is a strategic tile-laying game that puts the player in the role of a master horticulturist, and you'll compete against other players in trying to secure better and better products to cement your legacy as the master succulent Gardner. The game is quite eye-catching as well, and that's due to the gorgeous illustrations of Anna Daviscourt.

As you can see in the images below, the game's visuals are beautiful and perfectly suited to the game's Gardening theme. The game accommodates 2 to 4 players, and sessions will generally take around 45 to 60 minutes.

You can check out the full description of the game below.
