Premium Currency reported on May 24, 2022
You can buy in-game currency, but compared to other games like this its pretty lax and generous about offering multiple in-game ways to obtain it too, so artificial scarcity isn't a major issue. It was pretty easy for me to play Hempire without feeling like microtransactions were a major in-game presence or required to progress, but its still an element of gameplay.
Wait To Play reported on May 24, 2022
you have to wait for weed to grow, but the option to skip doesn't require real money.
