Patch 1.0.2

It's been a while, but a few people have brought some issues to my attention that I wanted to address quickly.

New option on pause menu: Inverted mouse look

Bug & performance fixes:
  • Performance with a large number of plants present has been improved
  • Load times improved significantly. This should also solve the issue several people ran into where you could not load the game if the plants exceeded a certain number.
  • Maximum number of plants that can be spawned while the game isn't running has been capped at 50 to prevent islands being totally overrun.

Unfortunately I have still been unable to solve the bug where flower picking clicks occasionally do not register. It's been a bear. :(

About This Game



Mendel is a science creativity sandbox. Pilot a probe on a far away planet, gathering samples from the weird native flowers and breeding them together to make new hybrids. Watch their genes merge and mutate, just like those of our own world, producing strange new creations to grow in your alien gardens.

  • Grow your own Proteus. There are no goals, no objectives, no pressure. Just a peaceful sandbox in which to experiment, create, and relax.
  • Tens of thousands of possible surreal plants
  • Watch your plants change and mutate as their genes combine and rearrange, just like those or our own world
  • Inspired by science! Mendel is the first game to receive the Alfred P Sloan Foundation Public Understanding prize, because they recognized a commitment to showing how beautiful the world of genetics is.

"It was kind of like bubble wrap. You really get into it and can’t stop planting and trying to make them do things."
-Nathalie Lawhead, creator of Tetrageddon and Everything Is Going To Be Ok

"Mendel is a beautiful game of digital exploration, inviting experimentation, reflection and calm."
- Jacob Wood, Indie Hangover
