Qbio is a sweet little farming idle game that is easy to complete but is a bit time-consuming. The achievement of letting it rain 100 times took me the longest. Takes around 20-25h to complete.

Qbio is a sweet, farming, idle game. Your role, should you choose to accept it, is to make a garden using grass blocks, wherein you can plant seeds, grow plants and earning yourself money. You’ll earn more money when harvesting the fully-grown plant, which can take real-life time to grow. For your garden there are also rock blocks and water blocks and on those, you can place all kinds of different things. Some will earn you money, others will scare away crows, meanwhile, some others will catch falling-stars for you.
There is not really an end goal for this game, thankfully it does have Steam achievements to provide at least something resembling a goal for you.
Qbio has 5 achievements, most of them are what you’d expect in a game of this type such as; growing plants and earning money. The other achievements are for allowing the crows to eat your plant, catching/earning stars and letting it rain 100 times.
The last one took a while, way longer than the other 4 achievements because to let it rain you will need 50 stars. So, you’ll have to wait till you’ve caught or earned 50 those stars.
Raining, naturally, allows for your plants to grow faster, so that is a nice benefit.
You can earn stars by killing the white birds and then they’ll fall out of the sky. There is also a buff which gives you a chance to get stars when harvesting your plants. I could’ve completed Qbio much quicker by planting the fastest plants and then used that buff for the stars when harvesting but doing that would’ve taken a lot of active gameplay, in what’s otherwise, a mostly idle game. I chose to make a row at the bottom with chests, so that they would catch the stars and empty every 10/15 minutes.
I did enjoy this sweet little relaxing farming game, and the achievements are very easy to obtain but they are time-consuming.
