Root²

Root² is a cooperative splitscreen arcade game in which two players take control of a plant. One player takes on the role of the root, gathering nutrients, while the other player embodies a flower bud collecting raindrops growing ever taller until finally blooming. The goal is to achieve a balance between the growth of both players.
