Love it!

Really cute and surprisingly enjoyable game. I kept trying to keep the plants alive for as long as I could through a few playthroughs.

It's a very lovely game, my only comment is that I have a bit of difficulty telling what the plants are when looking at the plants and referencing the book. However the art is very well done, and I'm sure it would be easier for a plant expert to tell.


Very cute!
