Destineer Ships John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland!

*Destineer Ships ‘John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland’ for Nintendo DS^™ *

*MINNEAPOLIS**,** MN** – November 21, 2007* – Adding to its popular
lifestyle lineup of John Deere games that have already sold more than a
half a million units, Destineer today announced it has shipped *John
Deere: Harvest in the Heartland*, a “hands-on” real-time farming game
for the Nintendo DS. From soil to sustenance, *John Deere: Harvest in
the Heartland* challenges players to create and maintain a fully
functioning farm.

Through an intuitive Touch Screen interface, players use the Nintendo DS
stylus to work the land, raise livestock, pick crops, milk cows, and
more to earn cash and improve the farm by purchasing land, livestock,
and authentic John Deere equipment. However, there is no such thing as a
successful “lazy farmer’ and players who neglect their farm and will
reap what they sow as they watch their farm and crops turn to dust.

* *Design & Detail:* use the touch screen and stylus to layout the
locations of fields and buildings. Use the top screen to monitor
the farm via the mini-map and check on the status of crops and
livestock with the Query Tool. .

* *Hands-On Farming:* clear land, plant and harvest crops, and drive
authentic John Deere equipment. Paint buildings and create a
unique logo for the farm which identifies players at the
Commodities Market. Feed, care for, and harvest products from the
animals through a variety of fun and intuitive stylus actions.

* *The Commodities Market and County Fair:* raise crops and
livestock for sale at the daily Commodities Market. Reinvest money
earned from the sale of crops and animal products to upgrade John
Deere equipment and make the farm more efficient and profitable.
Or, enter your products and livestock in “Best of” contests at the
County Fair for prizes and fame.

*John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland *is* *available now for $29.99.
