A downloadable virtual world for Windows and macOS

Stereophyta is a digital world where all things naturally produce music. All physical interactions, like the wind passing through the plants, animals wandering the wilds, and even the player's movement through the space, cause sound to play.

Set in a small archipelago in a massive ocean, players explore various procedurally generated islands each with its own variety of musical plants and animals. These range from drumming mushrooms to trumpet flowers, and violin deer to wind chime crabs. Time flows with a simulated day-night cycle while changing wind patterns evolve the sounds of the plants as they grow and dynamically create new melodies & compositions.

The art style features vibrant, glowing shaders, crawling psychedelic textures, and warm, bright colors. One moment, players will be mesmerized by the soothing ambient forests, the next they will find themselves violently chopping down a chaotic mess of overgrown plants. All in a day’s work…

Stereophyta was included in the official selection of Game Happens 2019, and received an honorable mention at AMAZE 2020
