FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BARCELONA, Spain – July 11, 2018 – SEEDS: The Magic Garden, a stunningly beautiful puzzler that tasks players with rescuing and growing magical plants, is launching today on the App Store and Google Play. Developed by Spanish studio Znavit Games, the innovative puzzle mechanics, devilish difficulty, and storybook visuals in SEEDS will delight players seeking to protect the world’s habitats one tree at a time. Thanks to the studio’s collaboration with international conservation charity World Land Trust (WLT), Znavit Games will make it possible for players everywhere to effect lasting change in the world.

In the magical world of SEEDS, join friendly beetle-cat Arni on a quest to save nearly-extinct plants by matching different colored stones. Use a variety of boosters and create “root paths” to help grow 30 extinct plants – but watch out for toxins, explosions, and other hazards! If you complete the game, you’ll not only be saving a tree – but you’ll also receive a donation certificate that can be saved to your device and shared on Facebook.

“We were delighted to hear from Znavit Games,” says Dan Bradbury, Director of Communications & Development at World Land Trust. “We believe in engaging people through various means, including technology – and SEEDS: The Magic Garden is a perfect vehicle for people to help save the world’s forests.”

“Games can give us power beyond our wildest dreams. This power may be used for the benefit of everyone – including the trees and animals that share this planet with us,” says Ori Behrend, co-founder of Znavit Games. “SEEDS: The Magic Garden offers players an opportunity to take an active role in the safekeeping and preservation of the planet’s habitats. This is a way for anyone with an iOS or Android device to have fun – and at the same time, make a meaningful contribution to the world at large.”
