Buy Now$3.00 USD or more

๐Ÿƒ Sproots is a colony survivial game where you control small Pikmin like creatures in a Sims-esque manner ๐Ÿƒ

๐ŸŒŠ Each 'sproot' is in constant need  of food and water. Their camp is always located near a 'life plant'  where they gather water, but you'll have to help them out getting food! ๐ŸŒŠ

๐Ÿ’€ Eventually every sproot will die of age (around 60), so be sure to let them breed new eggs on their nest! ๐Ÿฅš

๐ŸŒŸ During their lifetime they can study objects, learn skills, craft structures and items, and teach each other about their findings! ๐ŸŒŸ


  • left mouse button to click/select
  • right mouse button to cancel
  • ASWD to quickly move camera (even faster if you also hold shift)
  • H to warp back to camp
  • numbers to quickly select units

How do you teach to the young ones?

select an item in the inventory and click it on a child (it will suggest teach about <item>) this only works if the teacher knows more about the item

doesn't work on Mac either just says game not found when I open it

my pc says I cant start this game either i dont have permissions or I can acess it on windows 10

I really like this game, but after I quit, I lose all my stuff in the clay pots despite saving and it crashes a few times. The grapics are really cool!

Hey man just wanted to say that I'm loving the game! Great concept and execution. Now is there any way could make  gamepads work for the game?  And if you can;  is local co op possible?

hey thanks!

probably not. gamepad controls are generally quite easy to make for character controlling, but controlling UI usually requires a whole rework of the input code. 

i have no idea what local co-op in this game would like in detail

how do you make that graphics


by 'mixing drawing primitive shapes from code' with hand-drawn sprites.

Very nice game a map would be helpful, but I can see the rational behind the design decision not to include


the UI became a bit cluttered when i added it, but i suppose i could still figure out how to do it in a nice way

i wuld realy like to play this game but im not old enough to have my credit card im 12 and my parents are scared to buy from internet they think they will get scamed     :(

can u pls gift it to me ;)


Same but im 16 :c


Pretty addicting little game but I feel as though its missing an ability to queue up tasks, I really want to be able to just shift click a bunch of things for them to harvest and leave them to it rather than having to constantly check up on them to give them their next task.


Nice game, It would be cool if you  could add genetic inheritance for the different skin and flower colors. Maybe an option to breed two creatures together to get a new color variety? I see this game has alot of potential :D 


Hey man is there a way i can contact you?



Just to question you

This game is a bit too hard for me (I suck at most games). I would really appreciate it if you could select different difficulties.


Hey man is there a way i can contact you?


It'd be nice to have some other way to select an action than the mouse wheel - i.e. the space bar. On my laptop, it's unusable because the trackpad is too sensitive :(


thanks for the suggestion, iโ€™ll add that in next week!


Hey man is there a way i can contact you?

What do you use to make your games?


They told me gamemaker(tijmen and rubna use it) and unity(tom and aran use it)

Hi, cute game !

Is there a way to customize the camera shortcuts ? I use an AZERTY keyboard, it is difficult to play with the defaults shortcuts :)


oh, sorry bout that. Iโ€™m on a small vacation this week but I can add something in next week!

Woah, that would be amazing ! Thanks for the reply, and nice vacation :)

Hey, the game crashes when you pick up anything spiky
