Just imagine yourself grabbing your chainsaw in Farming Simulator, starting to cut a tree and then literally smelling the very wood in front of you. Sounds like an april fool’s joke, right? Well, it WAS but now its getting real at gamescom 2017!
Unlike back then, today is not April 1st and together with the specialists for digital innovations at Time Travelers Club and the fantastic technology by Olorama we will make it possible for you to not only see your actions in Farming Simulator at our booth in Hall 8 (A-051) but also to smell what you’re doing.
Olorama works similar to our fictional Oleo SC-8. Specific actions in Farming Simulator trigger the WiFi connected device which then releases the matching scent out of one of up to 10 cartridges and waft it towards the player with the help of a fan.
If you feel like not only seeing and playing but also smelling Farming Simulator for a change, you are more than welcome to visit one of our stage shows or ask one of our team at the booth. Maybe there is still a free slot open for you at the especially prepared gaming station!
Which scents will you be able to experience at gamescom?
The scent of wood when you cut it or use a woodchipper
Freshly cut grass.
Fresh woodland air when walking through a forest
Earth/ground when plowing or cultivating
Potatoes (while harvesting)
So follow your noses and we’ll see you soon in hall 8 in Cologne!

It's an interesting idea, and I am sure we will see more of this in the future but at the same same time I agree with some of the other people on this, I think they should put their time and resources into patching some of the issues in the game and the DLC's rather than wasting time on something that won't be commercially available for quite some time..... that's just my opinion but I can't see myself ever using this even if it was available.

Yeah I do agree with you there. They need to start fixing a lot of the bugs that people have reported.
I asked Lisertan how much this will be for starters and he said around $2600! He said it will get cheaper, but for now that's what they would advertise it as right now if they did end up selling it right now. Way too much money. It would be nice for my room to smell like this stuff, especially fresh cut grass. If only the made a car air freshener with cut grass smell. Aaaahhhhh.
