Sapling is a wholesome and heartwarming little game that tells a story of love, growing together, growing up and growing apart as a sapling and a flower share a pot.
Created for the I Can’t Write But I Want to Tell a Story jam, Sapling is a short and sweet little narrative driven experience where you follow the story of a sapling and a flower. A young tree and a delicate flower may sound like an incompatible pairing, but it turns out that they compliment each other perfectly. At least for a while anyway…
It’s a very short game, but Sapling’s story is beautifully told, with great narration and excellent writing. The story of the sapling and the flower’s loving, but doomed relationship delivers a great little allegory for relationships. Not every relationship will last forever, but they can be just what we needed at that time and can help us move on to bigger and better things (in life and in love).
