Sprout’s Tale is a 2.5 D game set in a dying world. As the protagonist, you are tasked with battling back the end of times with a pouch of seeds and a mysterious friend. Grow trees, vines, grass, and flowers to solve puzzles, kill enemies, and restore the world.
Sprout, the central character of the story, is awoken from non-existence when the world is on the brink of collapse. Darkness has breached almost every corner of the land and water, and it seems that only he and a winged companion have the power to stop it.

Find and plant seeds to create bridges, stairs, ladders, and traps. Using the right seed at the right time and place will be entirely up to the player, and saving seeds to utilize other tools in the environment will also be entirely within your power. While not strong alone, Sprout can use the fairy to help him carry and push heavy objects. The fairy itself will be entirely in the control of the player.

Another update. Also please check us out on IndieDB and give us a vote!


Our enemies are, unfortunately, still rolling balls, so you'll just have to continue waiting on that front. But the good news is we've now got that awesome darkness effect with enemies that you could see in the 2D version AND we've now got a really cool but not-quite-finished system for the fire burning grass away.


Touching burning grass is deadly!


We also have some very very rudimentary vines in the game now, which you can see here: 



Vines are used for climbing and killing enemies.
