Ages after Homo sapiens abandoned an exhausted Terra, life has just begun to reclaim its place on the surface. With limited resources, sunlight, and space, spread roots and grow towards the sky to become the last plant standing.

Flourish is a turn-based strategy game where players take on the role of a plant desperately trying to survive on an exhausted and depleted Terra. In an environment scarce on resources but filled with competition, fight against all odds to survive and thrive.
Biomass, water, and sunlight must be balanced to survive.
Resources are consumed to grow and to sustain your plant's size.
Collect sunlight from the sky by spreading your branches. Only the green, leafy portions of a plant will collect sun. Grow to cover the opponent plant and starve them out of sunlight.
Collect water and biomass by growing roots adjacent to them underground. Resource collection occurs at the beginning of each round. Water is renewable, but biomass will slowly deplete over time. Be careful - if you grow your roots directly into a biomass or water tile, the resource will be destroyed!
The larger a plant is, the more sunlight it needs to stay alive. In addition, it takes more water to support more branches and more biomass to support more roots. If a plant doesn't have enough water or biomass, its branches will begin to decay. If it lacks sunlight, its roots will decay. A plant dies when it decays away entirely. Use this to your advantage by starving your opponents of resources until they die - but be careful, less you decay away yourself.
Weather the elements and expand your plant. Explore new locations and repopulate the planet. Win by becoming the last plant standing.
