Improved graphics and cloud saves

Hi friends! We've been reading your posts in the forum and have worked to address some of your feedback.

It seems some of you have had issues with saving your games, so we've modified how all that works. We also implemented Steam Cloud so that your trees carry across to other computers! This should (at least) fix all of the problems we've heard about.

If you follow us on Twitter, you probably know that Bonsai is our first game and that we built it with jMonkeyEngine. Since the release, we've become a bit more proficient with JME, and have made some improvement to the graphics. Specifically, we added in dynamic lighting and shadows, so on the high graphics level your trees will really pop.

Surprisingly, Bonsai can be a pretty intensive game for your graphics card. Early in the game, there are not many branches to draw, but due to the growth of the tree, your video card will eventually need to draw a lot of things on the screen to keep up. For this new release, we also reduced the quality of the low graphics level in order to help lower end video cards run Bonsai.

We hope these changes make Bonsai better for you all! Some of you are really awesome gamers and we've appreciated hearing from you and seeing your support!

About This Game

Bonsai is a game about curiosity and life. Grow your tree, prune it, and watch over it as it matures into adulthood. The tree will become what you train it to be - you are the mastermind behind it’s path in life.

Each tree is unique and procedurally generated to be as authentic and realistic as possible. Grow an unlimited number of tree-friends using different strategies and masterfully sculpt their shapes. Be aggressive and hack your tree down or gently guide it each step of the way, how you tend to your tree is up to you. Since every tree and every species is unique, each play through will be different from the last!
