This is such a fun and unique game! I love that there are multiple endings! Great job on making an abstract puzzle game starring a tree hahaha! Such a cool idea!
How to Be a Tree

One of the best games on this site, and one of the strangest and strangely emotional games I've played. I love weird little games like this
Thanks! I just started a new job at a games company so I'm full time on that for now :)
it'll be so many vid on this pages already so i wont add one but i do add a playlist :D
if you want to find the 17 endings
i hope this playlist get feature in this homepages :)
What is the function of the power key 'p'?
It tries to disable vsync and framerate limiting, so the game will run as fast as your computer can run it. So, if you have a slower computer, it does nothing. If you have a fast future fancy computer, everything may run comically fast while 'p' is held ...
I've always wondered what it would be like to live life as a tree, roaming wild and terrorising the planet... wait, that sentence got a bit strange didn't it?
I honestly don't think I've played anything quite like this before, it's the most weirdly kooky game I've come across in quite some time, and also one of the best! I had lots of genuine laugh out loud moments whilst trundling through this little gem of a game.
The premise is simple enough. To tree or not to tree? If you just wanna tree and not do anything, that's cool! If you wanna break free of your cursed roots and leap off into a giant adventure, that's cool too! There's a multitude of endings (all of which I didn't get around to) and some wonderful rage-inducing moments mixed in for good measure as well.
I really can't recommend this slice of bizarre wonder enough, go and get it played and brighten up your life a little! And Jimmy, keep up the wonderful work! =)
Hi, wow looks neat :)
In this unusual game, we play as a Tree! There is 16 different endings! How many can we find? One of them is a Jet Pack Turbo Tree!

next ending: tree in Outer Space and King of Mountain
This is some good shit right here.
im a book and a fighter
dont forget to check the secret ending of the beginning :D
Still enjoyed it though :P
Never have I experienced such wonders as I did when learning to be a tree. I know have knowledge I never knew existed. Thank you all for making this.
ending 6 & 7
FREEDOM FOR ALL TREES ! got ending 7, 10 and 12 :D
love the game btw !
Had to STICK with it but enjoyed this, I thought it was TREE-mendous
Ending 4 & 5
Kinda bizarre game imo but it was a fun to play it. Controls were kinda strange so it reminded me as i was playing QWOP again. I like the fact there are multiple endings possible.
Fun game tho, good job!
This was such an interesting game! To think that there are so many ways to become a tree...it's just amazing! I love the graphics and the music within the game. I even like the little drawings at the end of each ending! Puzzle games are not my type of thing but this one is pretty cool.Since my computer sucks, I am really glad my computer was able to run this game. I had little bits of lag in certain areas but it didn't bother me as much. Thanks so much! Keep up the good work!
really fun game
Hey, you actually released this game! Awesome! :-)
This game does not work
He is bad
All 17 Ending is Uploaded..... Yeay....
Ending 3hope you enjoy it
first ending for those who prefer watching than playingwill post 1 a day
Found all ending in 3 hours, haven't played challenging puzzle game for a long time
I often forget root can collect things!
Tip: if you cannot collect fractal things or access some area yet, try unlock more "power" by unlocking more branches!(There is 5 plus a final one, find them yourselves!)(I think the power key themselves have a hidden message... not sure)
any of you feel this one like a stanley parable?
notes: first ending publish tommorow (19 hours more) :D
Fun concept, hard controls. (I'm on pc)
What a great game! I have genuinely never seen a mechanic like this, and it was actually really fun to play with. Cute story too, never a boring moment!
Wonderful game! I saw your post on TIGSource a while back and am delighted to see it finally released. I loved the exploration, physics, and humor.
You might not want to be distributing all the pixel fonts though, since I don't think they're free... I don't know the license though.
oops, thanks for the heads up; I didn't think about that! I did buy them, and I'm not sure how else to distribute them, but I've updated the zip files to remove all the ones I was not using and added a text file pointing people to the purchase link ... hopefully that helps ...
(To anyone interested in good pixel fonts, definitely go to https://chevyray.itch.io/pixel-fonts !)
thank you for telling me
now im guilty if i use those
This was really fun! Completed the whole thing in one sitting, and I'm currently messing around with the 16th ending's powers :D
Really good game, unique movement mechanics and really great branching gameplay. Literally.
Got all the endings. Reallty fun and well made. Unique in very many ways. Probably one of the best games iv'e played on itch.io. You should really be proud of this one :)
Really, really cool game. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Got most of the endings, but still about 4 more to get. :)
