A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

What will happen to Seedie and their underground friends when the sun comes up? Follow a community of seeds in their journey through life and its many uncertainties, where there is no beginning or end, only the confrontation of challenges met along the way.

Perennial is a procedural-generated art game that explores a selection of the many different responses to a life-changing event. Through the lens of seeds that are getting ready to grow into flowers, Perennial features a reluctant cast of characters, each with their own outlook on the approaching sunrise.

Perennial strives to create a non-linear experience through the abolition of a defined beginning and ending within its story. The seeds will continue growing whether or not someone is playing with them, and the sun will continue to rise. Will you take the time to notice them?
