Take Root v2023.02.06 (Lexaloffle Pico-8) (Game)

Take Root by Hark Forsooth Games is a sci-fi action game made for PICO-8.

In this game, you play in the year of 3249 and the world is barren. The Nuclear War between the United Federation of States and the Federated States Union has left the planet withered and dry. All hope seemed lost until a cadre of scientists working tirelessly on humanity’s first and only moon base genetically engineered a miracle ‘SEAD’. It was designed to survive and flourish on the last known green patch left on the planet. All that was left was to deliver the payload. Using advanced weather satellites, you must manipulate the Earth’s winds to guide the ‘SEAD’ to its target. The system is too complex to get into the details, but the controls are simple:

  • Press the Right Arrow for a Westerly wind.
  • Press the Left Arrow for an Eastward gale.
  • Press the Up Arrow for a powerful Updraft​.
