In The Weeds

Play OverviewPlay Overview

In the Weeds is an adventure game where you play a walking flower and grow plants to restore nature in a secluded forest. You traverse the woods by foot and bicycle, planting and watering flowers and grass that heals the land, and talking to whimsical forest creatures for quests and missions. It stands out for the charming world that you help heal through careful cultivation.

You play a walking flower in a forest where the ecosystem has been tipped out of balance by an invasion of pesky insects and grubs. You set out on a daring mission to restore the woods to their natural state by cultivating and caring for new plants across the forest floor. Along the way, you meet curious creatures and complete quests and must overcome hazards and stop the grubs from spreading.

Play involves moving about the healthy area of the forest, avoiding pests and environmental hazards, planting seeds where you can, and then watering them to grow them into flowers and grass. The grass can spread to areas of nearby desertion, letting you slowly push out the healthy ecosystem until the whole forest is thriving. As you progress, you meet a host of quirky characters, like a talking mushroom, who provides new quests and missions to complete. You can only do so much each day before you must head home and rest.

The result is a game where the charming, cosy world and characters are married with an engaging loop of cultivation and nurturing for the delicate natural world (although not the insects). Slowly seeing the area of a healthy forest expand as you fend off grubs and bugs makes for a satisfying reward for your patience and hard work.
