Dendrophile's Dream: The Old Tree

Like a beautifully illustrated children's storybook, The Old Tree is an interactive adventure following the first steps, or lurches, of an odd creature that hatches in the base of the titular timber. Think Samorost but with insect bellboys and an excellent mammal cameo. Interaction is simple, with the player enabling the tentacled apple-bulb to progress by clicking on parts of the environment to create a path. It's oddly sinister too, although nothing horrific happens so don't worry too much. Maybe it's just because I don't like grubs and insects. It'll only take about twenty minutes to play through and strange scenes like the one pictured above make that time well spent, I reckon.
