Coming to Mobile and The Curse of Yendor!

Hey, it's been a while since there's been any public announcements about XenoBloom, but the game still lives! I've shown XB at several gaming events in the Washington DC area, and I've even converted it into an educational game about soil science.

I'm also working on porting a mobile-optimized version of the game to Android, so that you can grow your garden on the couch, on the bus, or in class (just don't get caught...but if you do you can tell them it's SCIENCE!)

But the big news is that "The Curse of Yendor" is releasing on steam 02/17/17

"A sword and sorcery adventure where your magic shapes the world. A Classical rogue-like with a modern feel. A challenging game with clear goals and important tactical decisions. A deep experience that's easy to use. Kill monsters, get loot, solve puzzles, complete quests."

About This Game


XenoBloom charges you, an inexperienced demi-god, with the care of a fledgling alien biome. Nurture, harvest, evolve, and sculpt. Create your ideal garden world.

Unique to XenoBloom is its use of Cellular Automata to decide if plants live or die; Just watching their behavior can create a trance-like state of wonder.

XenoBloom contains no running, no jumping, no shooting, no loot, no health, and no shields.

What it does have is plants. They grow.

– Nurture strange alien life
– Harvest plants to evolve new life-forms
– Control the rules of selection and survival
– Sculpt your world
– 4 game modes: normal, experimental, observational, ecological
– No fail condition
– Beautiful original soundtrack

*New Features:
- Local Co-Op : Garden with a friend or family member
- Selective Evolution : You choose what will evolve next
