Reroot is a singleplayer platformer/metroidvania styled game about a lil' tree called Samuel. Samuel lived in a magical forest, which fell prey to greedy humans who exploited it for magical wood. Little did the humans know, the magical trees would fight back. As a result of this war, poor Samuel's entire magical forest is going up in flames. Play as Samuel as you explore the burning magical forest. Don't stay unrooted for too long, however, as you need the nutrients that your roots provide, so be wary of the timer! Along the way you'll encounter the roots left behind by fallen magical tree elders, to which you can connect yourself. In doing so, you recharge yourself, and learn about special abilities, unlocking new types of movement which allows you to reach new areas to explore! Disclaimer: the game isn't quite finished, cheers anyway for checking out our game, we had a blast!
