Review: The UnderGarden

The Undergarden is a simple game where you control a blue cherub of benevolence who bumps into glowing green pustules which emit magic dust you must use to pollinate bioluminecent plants that change color if you’re carrying an instrument-playing monkey. Got it? Not quite? It’s not apparent whether the developers did, either. This game asks the player to let go of their rigid expectation of an interactive experience, just chill out, and go with the flow. It doesn’t ask much of the player, and neither does it provide much in return.
