Story & Themes
Plant Nanny is a simple game with a unique concept: to ensure that typically dehydrated people drink enough water everyday. Players begin by entering in specifics about themselves (age, weight, etc.) and then choosing a type of flower to grow. Every time players take a drink of water in real life, they're supposed to water the seedling in the game. A gauge keeps track of how much water the plant has received, and a perfectly hydrated plant equals a hydrated player. Additional motivation is provided in way of cuteness since the flowers are adorable and only continue to become more so as they grow. It's sad to see the cute plants wilt from lack of water, and players will want prevent this by maintaining a healthy level of hydration of their own.
Players can exit the app at virtually anytime and save their progress.
Plant Nanny is a very simple app, and the only difficulty exists in the player's ability to remember to drink water.
