Microsoft has planted a Viva Piata: Trouble in Paradise demo on Xbox Live Marketplace.

We had, once upon a time, expected this around 5th September, when the gardening sequel launched in Europe. Still, better late than never.

The sampler consists of around 25 minutes of gameplay, and includes some Live features and the Just For Fun mode. There's no multiplayer, but just enough content to sow the seeds and entice the curious into buying the full game.

We hope so anyway, because once again quite a lot of people didn't bother, resulting in a debut chart entry for Viva Piata: Trouble in Paradise at 23, despite critical acclaim. Again.

Head over to our Viva Piata: Trouble in Paradise review for plenty of flowery reasons to pick this up.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
