A beautiful short game where you play as a plant, September 13, 2021
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This is a lovely little game by Caleb Wilson, one of many games of his involving magical plants.

In this one, you are at the bottom of a well with a piece of nearby sunlight. You want to grow but you just aren't strong enough.

This game is brief but with excellent characterization and strong writing, reminding me a bit of Out by Sobol, although less metaphorical. There are nice bits of world-building as well.

The world is yours, September 14, 2021

I have never thought as a plant.
This is a very original game, with a carefully construction.
I can say no more than you should enjoy it.

This game is a good "lunchtime" time.

Play the web version, June 28, 2020

A delightful appetizer.

The web version includes lovely background music by Julian K. Jarboe, don't miss out!

It was a little hard to guess the command to get started, so here's my gift to you: (Spoiler - click to show)touch sunlight with leaf
