Store page
Bernard has fallen from his home. Armed with only a watering can and any seeds he finds, he must make his way back.

The trees need both water on their roots and light on their leaves in order to grow. If a tree grows into an obstacle, it will bend, with a preference for growing right, towards the sun. Simple mechanics, but things can get rather complex.

This game started out as an entry for the 2015 Indie Game Making Contest. You can play the contest version for free here:

Please bear in mind that was its state after less than a month's development time. The final release will feature:
  • More variety in the visuals
  • Less abrasive music
  • A gentler difficulty curve
  • Altered and new puzzles (to total 36)
  • Minigame levels (optional but necessary to unlock the most difficult puzzles)
  • Map screen to give you a better idea of your progress
  • A more satisfying ending
  • Bug fixes
  • Birds that insult you

Any feedback welcome!

Trailer music has been updated. Worth doing I think.
