Prune is zen gaming at its finest

Video Games
Now, Prune just came out a only few days ago, but it's already extremely popular. And it's probably because it's just a very relaxing experience. It's already in the top ten. And I think people maybe are taking a break from the shoot-em-up games that we're all used to. [MUSIC] Hello everyone, this is Jason Parker for CNET. And today, we're going to be looking at a game called Prune. What you try and do is grow a plant and then prune away the branches that you don't need so that it reaches into the sunlight and the flowers begin to bloom. It's really an easy concept. You're not trying to score big points, and you're not trying to hit the fire button. It's all a very zen like experience, trying to get around this object to get to the [MUSIC] Sun, there are no bonus levels, I'm not getting any points. I'm not trying to get a high score, just trying to grow this plant. As you move on to harder levels, you'll notice that there are more objects that you have to maneuver around, so when I grow here, I try to make sure it doesn't hit the sides. Just trying to get as high up as possible. [BLANK_AUDIO] Up here you'll notice that you can take a picture of your results. I'll just do that right now, and you can zoom it around. And then just hit the button to save a picture to your camera library. What I'm reminded of in this game is the Bonsai trees that you might remember from Karate Kid. Where you, it's just a very Zen-like process as you cut away branches to make this plant look like a very tiny tree. [MUSIC] You'll notice in this level, if there's a wind coming from the left blowing the branches towards the right. [SOUND] So I have to try to. keep the plant in the light for as long as possible. I'm not succeeding. Wait a minute this isn't relaxing anymore. [LAUGH]
