Use arrow keys to roam as moss, mouse to look around.
"This game about being moss was originally a part of The Zium Garden, a gargantuan selection of games from independent developers in 2018. Eggermont’s game was inspired by Herbert Bayer’s land art, the Marble Garden, which explores the movement of light and earth in a dynamic space. The game itself is a pretty spectacular replica, keeping to Bayer’s original design of plinths and stones and geometric shapes. Where Bayer’s original piece likely anticipated human intervention, Anywhere the Moss Grows goes a more organic route. You press on as moss, moving across the tiles floor and up the partitions. The sun moves across the sky, implying the coming and going of days and days and days. There’s not a whole lot of pressure involved in being moss, crawling around some land art."
