What is it?

Desert Rose is a competitive strategy game where players have to grow a plant, capture the Sun's energy more efficiently than their opponent, and finally be the first one to grow a flower. A few simple rules give rise to various strategies and approaches. Customized 1v1 matches are short and fast.

The game idea arose when I wondered whether I could make a game where the most efficient strategies to win looked at all similar to how plants really grow in nature. I'm not sure if it worked.


  • Competitive gameplay that doesn't involve killing!
  • Flower editor that lets players show off their designs when they win!
  • Streamlined, intuitive matchmaking service
  • Cute, abstract plants

Future Features

  • 2v2? Maybe even 3v3?
  • Plant specialties?
  • I'm open to suggestions

Maybe also give my Steam Greenlight page some love.

Known Glitches

  • Sometimes playing several matches in a row starts to cause glitches. Restarting the program seems to fix it.
  • If you find more, I would appreciate you letting me know!
