Photosynthesis is a strategy game about growing trees in a forest to compete for light to get the biggest trees against your opponents. You’ll cultivate the forest from seeds to full bloom and rebirth, and you earn points as your trees photosynthesize.


In Wingspan, you play as bird enthusiasts, such as researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors, seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your network of wildlife preserves. As you collect a variety of birds you can unlock useful combinations to aid your efforts.


In Arboretum, your goal is to earn points by creating beautiful garden paths for visitors to the arboretum. It combines set collection, tile-laying, and hand management mechanics with beautiful artwork of various trees and plants.


PARKS is a celebration of the US National Parks where you play as hikers as they trek through different trails across four seasons of the year. While on the trail, these hikers will take actions and collect memories of the places your hikers visit. You’ll collect resources and will have to work with and around the other hikers in order to win.
