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.


- 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

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!
