Made for the Go Godot Jam 2021: GROWTH

Sprout your sapling and race to the sunlight with what little energy you can gather. How fast can you reach the tree tops.


  • Left/Right Mouse Click & drag to aim your sapling's stem and branches
  • Release LMB/RMB to grow stem or branch
  • [R] to restart level


  • Escape the tree canopy to reach the sun
  • Use energy to grow sapling
  • Stems gain you height and allow two (2) branches to be grown
  • Branches spawn leaves based on their length
  • Collect sunlight as it spawns using your leaves
  • Sunlight spawns throughout the level constantly but spawns slow down over time
  • Longer stems and branch segments are more expensive to grow
  • Stems are restricted to an upward trajectory

I like the game and all, but holly cow that last level, i was stuck like 30 min or so, even so pretty enjoyable

This is a great game! The music is so hypnotizing and soothing, and the pixelart making up the forest background is incredibly beautiful. It was fun learning how exactly to work the stem/branch growing. Great idea and implementation!

This is very good :)

Maybe a view of the entire sapling once the end of the level is reached could be a nice addition.


Such a great idea, will definitely go on the future updates board ^_^
