    Grow Song of the Evertree

    Come take an absolutely tranquil journey in the game Grow: Song of the Evertree. This enchanting world-sandbox type game is developed by Prideful Sloth and published by 505 Games. It released November 16th 2021 across PC, Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch. Therefore giving you full control of how you want to embark on this journey. The smooth controls and beautiful artwork throughout will make your adventure feel seamless.

    Grow Song of the Evertree

    As the last of the Everheart alchemists it is up to you to save the worlds of Alaria from the withering. By helping bring the Evertree back to life from the corruption and rebuild the town at the base of the tree. So this game is sure to bring you a beautiful melody of exploration and simulation.

    In many ways the simulation feels similar to Animal Crossing where you can literally design every aspect of your town. However Grow goes a few steps further in terms of customization. Giving you full potential to build your dream town. Make sure you plan your days to get your full potential out of it. Because much like Star Dew Valley or My time at Portia your time limit for the day time is limited. Perhaps a bit short in my opinion.

    Inside your Day to Day…

    There is a variety of things to do day to day. Once you first start the game you go up the tree to plant your seed and start working on repairing the tree. Pulling plants, planting seeds, removing debris, and singing, the corruption slowly fads away. What makes this experience more rewarding is that the worlds of each seed are not determined by predetermined maps, but by the essences used when creating the seed in an alchemy session. This allows diversity in numerous worlds, with new trees, bushes plants, and creatures to discover. When your worlds in the Evertree have been repaired, you can then befriend animals, go fishing, and catch bugs. Don’t forget you can harvest the unique plants and fruit as well.

    If you don’t want to work on growing your tree you can work on your town development, or pick away at one of the MANY achievements in the game. It is definitely worth completing those achievements as they give you items to decorate and alchemy essences. The more your town grows you will start to notice new characters will show up and want to move in. Once they have a home you can provide them a job at one of the shops in the town.

    I have to say there were many pieces and mechanics to this game I absolutely loved. If I had to say one of my favorite thing about the game was the brilliant music by Award-Winning Composer Kevin Penkin. It is beautiful and draws you in deeper into the tranquility of the game. I highly recommend this game between the adorable story and fun game play it is well worth your time.

    Terrorarium

    A game of adorable gore and murder gardens
    Terrorarium Gardener and Moogu

    You know, I didn’t think Terrorarium was going to suck me in as fast as it did. I was never a real fan of Pikmin. But ya got me! With your adorable little moogu and your hobbling gardener granny, ya got me.

    Murder Gardens?

    Terrorarium is a puzzle game at heart, where you have to figure out a way through what they affectionately dubbed “murder gardens.” You play as The Gardener, a little old granny character who controls different types of “moogu.” The moogu follow you around and can be used in different ways to help you get through obstacles. There are quite a few levels to play through and they can get quite tricky, so you may find time just zooming by if you get reeled in.

    In Maker Mode, you can try your hand at creating your own murder garden. Make it as easy or punishingly frustrating as you like and then release it into the world to make other players either cry or go “wtf?” Personally, this mode isn’t my cup of tea but I imagine it’s a lot of fun for people who like things like Mario Maker.

    As I mentioned above, different moogu have different abilities. They do things like set stuff on fire, block objects, or weigh them down. The moogu follow granny around all the time unless she tells them to sleep, which can get really annoying in some situations. They also breed when anything dead is around… which is kinda weird but okay. And that brings me to my favorite quote from the stream…

    Sometimes you gotta kill a few to breed a bunch!

    Divine Verdict

    This game gets tricky and it definitely makes you think. I like that it has the maker mode so you can exercise some creativity. Playing through the puzzles is what I really enjoyed and keep going back to.

    If you want to tease your brain or flex your puzzle building muscles, pick up this game for $10 on Steam today!
