Content Updates! MacOS and Linux Coming Soon!

We'll be releasing a major update in the coming month with content drops and bug fixes along with ports to MacOS and Linux.

Here's a sample of some of the new features in store:
  • 7 More Powerful Enemies - colorful new characters with more difficult attack patterns can spawn anywhere, but especially deeper into the game. Score attack die-hards should watch out.
  • New Playable Character! - the new astro is a glass cannon with no health regeneration but a devastating ability to compensate.
  • Additional Biographies and Character Art - keep unlocking the planet's secrets as you level up and learn more about the world of Germination.
You can also expect improvements to the stability of the existing Windows version and improvements to the leaderboards. Thanks for playing Germination so far! We hope you'll like what we've got in store for it next.

About This Game

An astronaut has crash-landed on an alien planet, and it's started to rain... seeds.

Germination is an arcade-style platformer about surviving an onslaught of carnivorous flora by stomping on their heads. Chain consecutive stomps to double-jump endlessly and combo your way to bonuses and powerups. You'll need to make precise work of your jumping - the only platforms you'll find are your enemies' heads.

  • Difficult campaign hiding a deadly boss.
  • Endlessly-looping Hard Mode for overachievers.
  • Nursery with Unlockable Plant Biographies and artwork.
  • Hand-drawn pixel animations and original soundtrack.
