Life finds a way. That seems to be at the root (ha-ha) of Prune, an upcoming game about aiding a tree in its quest to grow.

Not just grow taller, though - thrive.

Based on early gameplay footage, this is done by trimming branches to help the sapling develop around obstacles and away from danger. You complete levels by successfully guiding the tips of its branches to the light, so that flowers can begin to bloom.

Prune seems to have slipped by rather quietly this past year, or maybe it was just me who missed it.

Either way, it was just approved on the App Store according to the developer on Twitter, so we'll hopefully be seeing more of it very soon.
