The Flora is a meditative structured freeform game for 1-6 players, inspired by The Skeletons by Jason Morningstar, Artefact by Jack Harrison and A Feeling for the Organism by Evelyn Fox Keller.
In it you will play a long-lived plant, rooted in place, their history and responses to the elements, fauna, their
human caretakers and the human-shaped world. The game starts with fledgling Flora growing in our present day, you will feel the marks of human activity, the shifting seasons, and the changing climate as you adapt and grow, and eventually decay and die.
You’ll be answering questions, choosing options from tables, telling or writing stories about the Flora and the different caretakers in the Flora’s life, drawing and updating a map of the Lot on which they live, and drawing the Flora throughout their lifespan.
We hope you will develop a feeling for the Flora as you play.
Official Selection for the 2022 Meaningful Play Game Exhibition and winner of an Honorable Mention in the IndieCade 2022 Climate Jam.
