A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Twin Sprouts is a competitive (gardening) 3D platformer for PC. It is a multiplayer game, which is playable in local split-screen view with controllers. The goal of the player is to achieve a higher score than the opponent by growing plants and collecting the joy orbs they produce. But be careful, your opponent can steal your joy orbs! 

How to Play:


Xbox Controller
A - Jump & Glide
Y - Plant Seed
X - Cast Water Spell
B - Cast Sun Spell
Start - Pause

Alternative Keyboard Controls
(Only Applicable on the Blue Sprout)
Space - Jump & Glide
E - Plant Seed
Left Mouse Button (LMB) - Cast Water Spell
Right Mouse Button (RMB) - Cast Sun Spell
Esc - Pause

For the best experience, use two XBox Controllers! If two controllers aren't available, it is possible to play it with one controller (Red Sprout) and Mouse/Keyboard (Blue Sprout)

I could not find any seed to plant, so I resigned. The controls are hard to use with a controller, one joystick used to move, the other to turn around - hard to use. I really liked the style and hoped to play the game with my kids but it would just be too hard to control for them.

wow, the art is amazing, I love it


Ma dio cane falla una sezione comandi

There was a lot of glitches on my game. The first one was that both the characters went wild on their own and one of them ended up outside the stage and the other unable to get back on the ground. The second glitch was also happened but this time the red one went under the stage.

Awesome game! My wife and I played together and we loved it!

Love the graphics and concept!!


this is so cute!!! i didn't have anyone to play with but even alone it was quite enjoyable! the environment is so cute! and the mechanic of growing plants is quite nice :D


Hey there!! My friend and I had an absolute blast playing your game. The concept is great and it runs really smoothly (once you figure out what you're doing lol). I hope you don't mind but we made a let's play of the multiplayer. Thank you for such a charming game =)


This was a really cute game! I don't come across a lot of split screen projects that are family and kid friendly so I wanted to highlight it as a bonus game in my list. I didn't experience any of the glitches some talked about so I don't know if I played a more updated version. Either way, good job on this one!


took me 2 seconds to glitch out of the map


Hey, I just stumbled over your game, which looks really great! Since I am a big linux enthusiast and don't use windows or mac, I wanted to ask if you could create a linux build of the game. I would be very happy about that! :)

Thanks and good luck!

I don't know, whenever I started playing with my little sister, one or both of us would fling around, and we would die and spectate the other, and she even got on the other side of the invisible barrier. That's all of the detials I know.

Do you know how the it occur ? Before your little sister get thrown to the other side of the invisible barrier?

I also would like to know  how did you both died in the game . The game has no death mechanic in it.

I'm sorry to hear that this happened to the both of you. We'll look into this one!

No I don't know, we just started moving and we started going crazy, she loves gardens so I'm sure she'd be happy if you fixed it! Thanks!

Did you restart the game fully? That usually fixes that problem! It's a very rare bug, that only occured once during our extensive game testing sessions 

No I hadn't, but now that I have it's even worse, escpecially on higher qualities. I even turned pixelated and glitched back to spectating. And on lower qualities it still doesn't work. We were thrown out of the barrier, and fell down into the void and our screen would change to the other person's screen or none.

It could be caused by your Computer, now that you mention the quality settings. We will look into it, however we only had the second screen bug so far but not the other things, it's really odd! 

same thing happen to me where the screen just changes to the other persons when you finish a plant


Easy to learn, hard to master!



Thank you!


I'd actually give it an A++
