Plantific Ocean – from the mind of a 9 year old
Alingsas, Sweden – In 2011 the owners of IT consultant company E-leet Solutions, Aaron and sa Bertsch, started talking about making an app. Being avid gamers themselves they wanted to make a game app. Ideas were discussed back and forth at the dinner table. Their two children, who also play games, took an immediate interest in their parents’ new project, and it wasn’t long before their (at the time) nine year old son brought them a bunch of drawings he had made of a game he called Plantific Ocean.
“When he first brought us the drawings we weren’t sure what to expect”, says app developer Aaron Bertsch, “but we’ve always known he’s very creative, and what he brought us was just brilliant in its simplicity. As a game it was easily recognizable and yet completely unique. We thought it was a great idea.”
The finished game has kept the original name, Plantific Ocean, but has a few added features. It’s an obstacle course where you draw the path that the character, Thomas, takes from start to finish. You also craft the objects he needs to counter the various obstacles he encounters along the way. Because the different paths you build also use up resources, it is important to manage your resources and choose the path that allows you to build the road as well as the objects you need to complete the course.
