TumbleSeed (Switch) review
"TumbleSeed is the Dark Souls of flower seed sims... except really, truly hard this time, I swear!"
TumbleSeed, a brand new game from an indie studio known as aeiowu, has numerous pleasing qualities: colorful and effective visuals, a kooky soundtrack, a unique premise, and enough charm to power several other games.
I don't like playing TumbleSeed, though. One might even say I hate playing it, for reasons that may not bother you in the slightest.
In TumbleSeed, you assume the role of a small little seed that lives in a village populated by older, wiser seeds. An ancient prophecy foretells brave deeds on your part, because you possess the unusual ability to plant yourself in patches of soil on a nearby mountainside. If you die, you can always just plant yourself and try again from that mountain's base, as often as you might like. You're a pretty useful hero, in that one respect. Alas, you don't have much else going for you.
