This Extremely Chill Video Game Is All About Succulents

If you love succulents, your day has come.

Succulents IRL are obviously the best thing ever.

But if your real garden isn't enough to satisfy your succulent desires, there is now a second best thing...

... a VIDEO GAME that is literally all about low-maintenance greens and nothing else.

As all video games should be. JK.

Meet Viridi (free, Mac and PC, iOS coming soon), a click-to-water game where doing less is more. The trick is to *not* overwater your buds.

There's not much to actually do in this game.

I keep it running in the background because I like the soothing music so much. Lol. Viridi is honestly a zen wonderland for peace and quiet.

This is my pot, Hungry Hippot, six days in. 🌡

Once a day, I click on each bud to see if it's thirsty.

Each bud's hydration levels appear at the bottom. My mini pachyphytum fittkaui was thirsty, so I gave him a little spritz. The spritzing noise is very satisfying.

If you spritz more than once a day, your buds will become overwatered.

There are also tiny weed thingies that crop up all over my pot. It is not clear why I need to remove them. But it's a thing to do, so I do it.

Hover over the grass and click the "X".

To distract yourself from watering your plants, you can play with your snail friend instead. You can water the snail infinite times.

You can zoom up to it, "sing" to it, pick it up, move it around, and name it. I named it Frank. The snail is actually the best part of this game.

You get one free seedling per week, and you can also buy plants from the "nursery" for mere cents.

Senecio serpens for 19 cents! Amazeballs.
