You play a woman returning to an Australian National Park that she used to visit as a child. Play involves exploring and restoring the park to its natural beauty. As you pick up rubbish and repair things the habitat blooms and native wildlife returns. But at the same time, this lets you revisit memories of your childhood visiting the park with your parents and sister. Along the way, you'll also find little trinkets to keep in your campervan.
As you progress you hike up the mountain to uncover more plants and wildlife. Throughout the park, there are plenty of rest stops to sit, relax and take a moment to meditate and enjoy the scenery while you listen to beautifully composed music.
The result is a calm game you can take at your own pace. As you explore you can find hope, genuine moments of emotion and lovely little experiences to discover.
A part of the story is implied grief and the reconnection after that.
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger children need to be keen readers and have an inclination to explore. Some maturity around relationships enables children to engage with the themes.
