A virtual reality game for the Global Game Jam 2019, made for UWP/Windows Mixed Reality platforms.

The theme was “What Does Home Mean To You” and for us a defining feature of home are trees and so we made a game about putting trees on planets. You get the trees on other planets by spinning them and firing tree seeds from your planet across space to (hopefully) another planet.
