About This Game

Take a deep breath and prepare for a tranquil journey through the seasons with Storm, an atmospheric, ethereal experience where you use natural phenomena to guide a simple seed to fertile soil so it can take root and spring to life.

Embrace the subtleties and strengths of nature to move a broken branch, fill a small pond or make snow fall to solve puzzles and create natural paths. Take your time and explore nature's nooks or simply enjoy the ambiance as you float, blow and bounce a seed to the perfect place to take root. Relax and enjoy Adventure, Challenge or Spirit modes, each set in gorgeous environments and enhanced by soothing, nature-inspired soundscapes.

  • Gorgeous Environments: Interactive environments react to your every move as you make a path for your seed's journey through 49 lush levels.
  • Background Soundtrack: Enjoy the soothing soundscapes created by indie developer and musician Terence Lee, who also came up with the original concept for the game.
  • Three Modes Over Four Seasons: Choose between Adventure, Challenge and Spirit modes for multiple levels of enjoyment.
  • Natural Controls: Use either an Xbox 360 Controller for Windows or a mouse and keyboard to manipulate the elements at your own pace.

Great puzzle. When I started to play I thought: "What do I supposed to do here?", "WTF?!". But then I realized what is the target, how to solve it. This game is makes you to use natural powers to spread plants onto selected points. You can combine them to create specific effects.

I love this game. The puzzles are pretty easy, but the sounds are relaxing. Nice to play after a long day at work to just unwind and give my mind a little break.

Storm is a puzzle/platform game where you use the elements to guide your seed to good soil. I have tried this game a few times earlier but quit because of bad controls - I am allergic to badly ported games. Now I have an XBox-controller and gave this game one more try.

Unfortunately, Storm didn't convince me this time either. It's a shame because I really want to like this game. It's incredibly beautiful and has a great sountrack with relaxing sound effects. Also, it isn't developed by any big giants but by the much smaller Eko Software.

I love the charming graphics but beyond that there isn't much in this game for me. I just get frustrated over stuck seeds and unmanageable controls. I can theoretically solve the required puzzles, but making the controls do what I want is a completely different matter. Maybe it is something for you if you like this kind of challenge, but for me this game experience turns into a stressful, frustrating mess. And I have to say it is a shame because, again, I love the concept and the visuals.

A nice little gem.
I really liked the way everything is kind of tranquil. Even the harder levels never get to hectic. It's not a hard game but it's not a pushover either. Over time you get new riddles with old game mechanics or new mechanics that allow for new combinations. I sometimes knew the solution but couldn't do it right and sometimes took a while to find the correct way. But I never thought it was unfair or based on luck.
The music also fit very well.
Recommended for those who can spare a little time next to the world of battlefield duty and are willing to not shoot anybody for a while. It worked for me.

The description says it all, Its quite a tranquil journey. Sometimes you just need to get away from the zombies and guns to deflate. Storm has brought me that calmness i wanted. I'm really picky about puzzle games, but this just had me interested. I love the nature setting, it looks beautiful and has good music. I'm a sucker for good music. If you've played Flower you'll probably like Storm.

While I'm only on Day 8 of Spring, this game has a unique combination of serene calmness and "what the f--k" difficulty. I'm quite surprised that this game isn't more popular.

The idea is very good, but:
- controls are atrocious, especially autumn tornadoes, it feels like pure random luck with them.
- cannot set sensitivity or rebind keys, menu controlled by keyboard only, game is mostly mouse.
- the places where the seed is suppose to go are sometimes same color as everything else, and you have to guess.

Overall it feels like better Bad Rats.

This game is really fantastic ! Graphics are great, music is calm and controls are good enough to end the puzzles easily when you have the right solution. One of my favorite game.

Important note : for the Spirit mode, you can complete the levels even after chrono has reach zero. Time is for scoring only. No stress...

This game is so calm and relaxed it is a great way to blow off some steam after you have a tough day. Sometimes the puzzles are difficult to complete but your mind will be much clearer after seeing these great graphics and music. This game shows an accurate if not exact likeness of nature.

TL;DR- Don't buy this game.

I forced myself to finish this one in order to review it for IGN, but if I ever have to look at it again I'll hurt something. The puzzle mechanics are confusing and unresponsive, the abilities work 40% of the time, the objectives are unclear, and the game never looks as good as the trailers imply it does. Don't waste your time.

First thing I want to say about Storm is this; ignore the metascore. That score is coming from a bunch of stuffy cublicle workers who work for big, conglomerated gamging sites. This is not a game for them, so it only stands they wouldn't like it. Do you enjoy puzzle games? Storm is for you. Did you enjoy Journey, Flower, flOw, or Puddle? Storm is for you. Storm isn't perfect by any means, don't get me wrong. But it is whimsical, relaxing, and nowhere near as frustrating as critics complain it is. If you are on the fence, watch a few videos of gameplay on Youtube; I would still recommend snagging it on sale though.

This game is wonderfully calming. There are some very challenging puzzles, and it's good to pass time with.

You'd think this game would be pretty epic being about weather/nature and being an indie game, but unfortunately it's just boring. The graphics look pretty good, if you're looking at thumbnails, but once you're in fullscreen 1080p it looks very bland and muddy. If Steam had a refund program, I'd definitely use it on this title.

This game is a fun little puzzle game with a bit of mood setting to it. If you like to play puzzle games then its for you. It is a side scrolling game and is very easy to navigate controls. Just have to practice and you'll get the hang of how to do it.

A very tidy little puzzle game. Despite a few annoyances like not being able to change the mouse sensitivity, or the restarting whole levels when you mess up, it's pretty good for the money. If you like puzzlers, pick this up, it's not "click and go", but having to execute a plan, and do it correctly or you have to restart, which is a fair punishment / reward trade off. By no means terrible, worth a quid or 2.

I feel like I should warn others about how bad this game is. Going into it I thought well this seems refreshing a very zen game. WRONG! It is an excersize in frustration all the controls are very fiddly and rarely do what you want. whats more the game is way to repetitive the core concept is just too simple to support a full game. If you can get it for under a dollar then it might be worth it, but frankly don't make the same mistake I did.
