I recently purchased a fun and enjoyable game called Below the Root.

If you are one whom enjoys a good fantasy book this maybe for you.

The program is a graphic adventure game that is played in a country that is filled with gigantic trees. There are two different people, one live in the trees and the other liver under the roots of the trees.

The trees are filled with nids(homes) and various shops, where you can buy items to help you in your quest. You build strength, spirit power, and other characteristics that help you on your way.

One really fun feature is the ability to jump from tree to tree and glide using something called a shuba (you look like a flying squirrel).

Probably the thing that is most enjoyable is that like a good book, you feel that you are really involved in the story line.

Good stuff.
