Prune is a love letter to trees. A game about the beauty and joy of cultivation.
With a swipe of a finger, grow and shape your tree into the sunlight while avoiding the dangers of a hostile world. Bring life to a forgotten landscape and uncover a story hidden deep beneath the soil.
• A unique digital plant for your pocket
• Beautiful, minimalist art and a super clean interface—it's just you and the trees
• Meditative music and sound design for you to zen out to
• No IAP, no monetization strategy, no currencies
• Share screenshots of your unique tree creations with friends
• Synchronize progress across all your devices using iCloud
Originally based on an experimental tree generation script, Joel McDonald carefully crafted Prune to perfection over the course of a year. Kyle Preston joined in to add his unique musical signature and sound effects.

What's New in Version 1.0.68
Fixed the game progress bug (hopefully for good). Really, really sorry for any frustration this has caused. This has been an elusive bug to fix, only affecting certain players on certain versions of iOS/Prune.
NOTE: This update will not restore lost progress. If you've been affected by this, please do not hesitate to contact me and I'll try my best to help.
My progress got reset
I updated the app and it started me from level one. Kind of ruins the whole game if I have to restart and hope that my progress doesn't get reset again.
I finished all of the game. I highly recommend it.
Not exactly Zen
Although I love the concept and visuals of this game, I would really love a setting where you can slow it down. For a supposedly Zen game, it's pretty stressful to have a speed component AND not have any idea of the #@!&?? rules. Not to mention when you can't see the whole picture at the outset. Grrrrrr.
