A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

You start as a little seed who must grow into a beautiful plant.

Your goal is not just to keep the plant alive, but also to make it flower and flourish. Lay down roots to collect water, you can use that water to raise up your stem and collect energy. You gain more energy in sunlight and gain more water in water patches. As your energy and water production and capacity increase, you'll be able to produce flowers and even one day a fruit to produce a seed of your own.

Controls

- Click on a piece of the plant to select an upgrade.

- Use the scroll wheel or left click to pan the camera up and down

Install instructions

Windows

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"

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:

Error

roots/buttons.lua:157: attempt to index a nil value

Traceback

roots/buttons.lua:157: in function <roots/buttons.lua:146>

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!

I forgot to mention, great game!
