The story behind the theme and game:
The story behind the lotus flower - A seed that may lay dormant for
1000 years, will finally awaken. First, it must fight through the
muddy water to raise its heart to the world and each night, it will
recede back into the water. One day, a new strain of lotus is
introduced into the pond. Your goal will be to overcome this new
challenge and thrive.
The lotus theme was inspired by the shape of the game piece, a
unique piece that resembles the seed pod of a lotus. Beautiful artwork
pairs wonderfully with satisfying piece movement for an approachable and
fulfilling gameplay experience.
