A Video Game-Branded Weed Strain Debuts During GDC 2022
In a brilliant strategy designed for DGC, a video game developer has released a weed strain to help promote their game. The game is The Lost & The Wicked, which if you haven't seen it yet is a twin-stick psycho-thriller title created by developers Isaac Torres, Zack Kennedy, and Andrew Diatroptoff. As part of the promotion for the game during the convention, they have partnered with Bay Area company North Country Pharms to create what they are calling the "World's First Video Game Branded Marijuana Strain", which they are calling Wicked Indica.
You can see it here in its own custom jar designed after the video game. The game itself is designed to be a character study about regret, facing your demons, and confronting your past. Throughout the process, you'll be tasked with overcoming several unforgiving enemies and bosses, all while you discover who you are and where you came from. Which sounds like the perfect title you'll need some marijuana for at different points in the game. If you happen to be in San Francisco for the convention, you can check them out at booth N3107 in the GDC Play area from March 23rd-25th.
