Game Information
Short Introduction: 
Saplings is a title intended for the PC and Mac platform. The game is a third person puzzle platformer, where the player must modify the environment by planting special seeds that grow through generations. The game observes the story of a clan member and his descendants as they set out to follow an ancient path left by their forefathers, using plants to modify the environment that will allow the next generation (when grown) to reach previously inaccessible platforms.
Mac OS X+
Brief Play Description: 

This is the tale of brave men
who set out to follow the
ancient path left before them
by their forefathers.

Each generation, a member of a Celtic tribe is chosen to follow the sacred path left by his forefathers. It is unknown what lies at the end of this ancient path, if nothing but the promise of a fulfilled destiny.
The game begins as the player sets out on his journey. Completing the six puzzles, the last generation/character to finish finds a special golden seed and plants it. Out from the special seed grows a sacred tree, and the player can track the tree's growth by switching generations, as previously done throughout the game.
