Let There Be Life is a relaxing, zen puzzle-like game that takes players to an enchanted world where they create magical trees and interact with playful wildlife. The trees want to grow big and beautiful, but they don't want to harm any flowers with shadows caused by their leaves.

A winner in Edge-Online's Get Into Games Challenge 2013, Let There Be Life is a watercolor painting come to life. It offers the player a calm, peaceful environment to unwind, experiment and let creativity flow. Perfect for anyone who is -or ever was- a child!

*Let There Be Life is currently on Steam Greenlight - if it succeeds, we will gladly offer Steam keys to anyone who purchases the game from here!


- Adding leaves increases the health of the trees, but...
- Plants on the ground below will die if placed in too much shadow!
- The farther you extend branches, the more health is added by new leaves (think multiplier).
- Mushrooms like shadows, and a fully grown mushroom resets the light for nearby plants.
- A variety of playful wildlife to unlock and interact with throughout the game.
- The real goal is not to "beat" the 34 different levels, but to create trees you're happy with.


“...beautiful hand drawn artwork, gorgeous interplay of light and shadow, and relaxing gameplay.”
