Play OverviewPlay Overview

Flower (2009) is a traversal collecting game where you control the breeze across fields of grass and blow petals into other flowers to make them bloom. Flower is simple and single-purpose in evoking the feeling of the wind. What starts as an awkward struggle to control the breeze soon turns into a flowing race, skimming the tops of grass blades as you master the motion or touch controls.

Your task is to collect petals. As you circle and loop through these spaces, the rain might fall or nighttime arrives, but it’s the ongoing reaction of the landscape that makes it a place to linger and play. It’s a magical world that not only responds to but is transformed by your presence. A transformation that leads from the countryside to the city and back again.
