Nabbed from Rock, Paper, Shotgun but definitely worth sharing.


Taking more than a leaf from That Game Company's design book, Phyta happily straddles the really simple gameplay that just happens to be fun with amazingly pretty graphics and a wonderful soundtrack. It may not take more than 5-10 minutes to do everything you can in the game, but it's a very pleasant 5-10 minutes. At least until you think about what it is that you're doing, and then maybe it's not quite so fun.

Anyways, download it on your lunchbreak and enjoy.

edit: I should probably add, Left Mouse Button for a growth spurt, but the tendrils won't be as thick.

    I am loving the indie scene these days. Granted, there isn't much game to this, but it's aesthetically fantastic. More games need to have acoustic guitar/violin soundtracks.

    Didn't find it to be fun or very insightful, though. Pleasing to the senses? Very much so.

    Very relaxing for the most part... But also somewhat frustrating.

    Pretty though.

    Neat little game, I hope this guy gets some attention so he can more more neat stuff like this. This would make a great screensaver, it reminds me of Moppi Flowersaver. That's the only site I could find that still has a link to it, I guess Moppi went under or something.
