Let There Be Life is a relaxing, creative game that takes you to an enchanted world where you create magical trees and interact with playful wildlife. The trees want to grow big and beautiful, but they don't want to harm any flowers with shadows caused by their leaves.

*Let There Be Life is now on Greenlight - if it succeeds, we will gladly offer Steam keys to anyone who purchases the game here!

GAME PLAY

- Adding leaves increases the health of the trees, but...
- Plants on the ground below will die if in too much shadow!
- The farther you extend branches, the more health is added by new leaves (think multiplier).
- Mushrooms like shadows, and a fully grown mushroom resets the light for nearby plants.
- A variety of playful wildlife to unlock and interact with throughout the game.

REVIEWS

"...I love the general idea and the vibe of the game." - Adrian Chmielarz, The Astronauts

"...relaxing, almost sedative experience" - Karl Magnus, DICE

Looks like it would port to Android well; like Spirits or Night Sky (two great puzzle/non-fast-action titles)

Backward_Jay... now *THIS* is a fine example to set for developers everywhere.

Now I do not know how this game is going to play, or how much fun it is.. but it sure is on my list now; *Just* for t his fine conversation I have witnessed in the comments here.

Thanks.

"fiat osx" seems to have been a play on "fiat lux" (let there be light) Genesis 1:3 the likely inspiration for your title

I, too, would prefer an OSX version than running windows games inside a wine container on OSX.
