Mito is a game where you play the single cell responsible for the growth and success of a plant-based life form. Build cell Tissue to expand your reach. Build Roots underground to suck up water nearby. Build Leaves to convert that water into sugar, which is required to upkeep your plant, keep expanding, and finally grow seeds. You win the game by building getting a Seed to 100% maturity.

Mito started as part of 7drl-2018.

You

You can carry max 100 resources, and you automatically suck in any resources you're standing over. You can only walk on Tissue (and Transport). You start at the center of the map, with soil below and air above.

Soil

Soil holds water, rocks block your way, and Fountains are a larger source of water.

Air

Air provides sunlight. Sunlight drives photosynthesis on your leaves. 

Gravity

Gravity will pull down on your structures, so make sure they're structurally sound. Your structures cast shadows.

Water

Water is one of the main two resources. Obtain water in the ground through Roots. Leaves require water to photosynthesize.

Sugar

Sugar is the other main resource. Leaves convert water into sugar. Obtain sugar by putting water onto leaves. Tissue eats sugar and turns it into energy, which your cells need to survive.

Energy Upkeep

All cells continuously require energy to survive and will automatically eat sugar on their tile, or get energy from their neighbors. Each cell consumes the equivalent of 1 sugar in energy every 480 seconds.
