Bonsai Bloom by onethousandfaces

Doug and I made a game! And it’s playable! OMG.

Our aim was to release something in a month, crap or good. Didn’t have to be polished or portfolio-worthy, just out the door and playable. We threw down a heap of ideas over the last 4 weeks that eventually got whittled down to a very basic essence.

Bonsai Bloom is a bonsai simulator; zen-style, meaning no panic or challenge. You just hit go and enjoy a procedurally generated tree growing of its own accord. You can prune your bonsai as it grows, and at the end of the grow period, you get a little meditation.

We created this for the GitHub Game Off. Dev by Doug. Other stuff by Sandy.
