We live in a pretty gloomy time right now, and we’re all looking to lift our spirits up a bit. To help boost positive vibes and spread some positive cheer, Hendrick’s Gin just released their first-ever augmented reality game, The Cucumber Horticulturist.
Going live last June 20, The Cucumber Horticulturist is a quick, fun game with beautiful art created in celebration of World Cucumber Day, the fruit being a pivotal ingredient that gives Hendrick’s Gin its unique taste. Simply move your head from side to side to control your growing cucumber plant and collect falling water droplets on the screen while steering clear of rose petals, which can bring your game to a thorny end. By gathering enough water in the pot, you’ll be able to grow a majestic vine and win the game.
But the game isn’t just a fun way to pass the time–by winning, you’ll receive cucumber currency by email presented as a 15% off e-coupon on Hendrick’s Gin, which can be redeemed on boozeshop.ph until July 31. While you can play the game as much as you want, there are only a limited number of rewards available, so get to playing and win that prize while you can!
“There would be no Hendrick’s Gin & Tonic without the cucumber, and we dedicate a day each year to celebrate its wondrous possibilities,” shares Charmaine Thio, Hendrick’s Southeast Asia ambassador. “World Cucumber Day is an opportunity for us to showcase the versatility of the noble fruit as real currency that adds delight and whimsy to our lives especially in these unfamiliar times.”
