This work aims to be a factual documentary, explaining to young and old alike exactly how the mysteries of nature unfold.
I don't agree that any part of This is How Bees Work could be considered a factual documentary but it is an enjoyable casual game in the same vein as Flower (by thatgamecompany). You play a cloud who rains on command. Flowers grow where you rain, which attract bees. These flowers then eventually turn into other small leafy plants or trees. You play long enough you get a few different coloured trees and bees. With its light soundtrack and heart-warming nature themed gameplay, This is How Bees Work is a game worth checking out.
