What a neat game! It's really interesting how a good strategy for laying out leaves naturally ends up with flowy tree-shapes.
Lay Down Your Roots
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
You start as a little seed who must grow into a beautiful plant...
Lay down your roots to collect water, use that water to raise up your stem and collect energy. Use that energy to grow more roots, and so on... As your production and capacity increase, you'll be able to produce flowers and even one day a fruit, to produce a seed of your own.
- Click on a piece of the plant to select an upgrade.
- Click and drag to pan the camera
- Scroll to zoom

Download the zip, extract, run
Windowsn't (MacOS / Linux)
Unfortunately I cannot build a mac version of this game since I don't have a mac. But! You can still play it with a little bit of extra work on your part (sorry!)
You'll first need to install LOVE2D at http://love2d.org/ , should be pretty quick and painless.
Download the .love file (labelled as mac/linux friendly below)
Double click to run and that should "just work"

I like this game, really fun and relaxing.
Hey there, do you develop in Unity? really nice game
This is a pretty fun game to sit down and play for a half-hour or so! That said, I was growing my ridiculous-looking tree (I grew a zillion branches off of the same area) and I grew a new root, and it crashed. Here's the error message:
roots/buttons.lua:157: attempt to index a nil value
roots/buttons.lua:157: in function <roots/buttons.lua:146>
nx/game/actor.lua:256: in function 'callForAllComponents'

Not sure why that happened but it was going well before that.
you need to specify the LÖVE version to use and put a link to it. LÖVE's API break a lot. Good game.
It's specified in the conf.lua, I thought that would be enough. Thanks for the tip though!
Nice relaxing game.
I really enjoyed playing it
Really cute and immersive game! It was a lot of fun.
this is awesome and you know it. Shared it with my friend who plants a lot and she loves it as well!
Man, this is really cool.
