Pocket Oasis is a gentle horticulture simulation where you care for plants and pets on your balcony. It's a meditative experience where the end goal, rather than being a defined objective, is simply to create a beautiful balcony with an array of species. It's a unique offering that allows for creativity and individuality while providing a peaceful retreat from everyday life.

You need to cater for the needs of each plant species individually, as some require shade, others sunlight, and different temperatures and amounts of water. Along the way, you can harvest fruit used to produce jam you can sell, and make new friends with the creatures that come to visit your balcony. Each plant also has a difficulty level, which indicates how hard it is to keep alive.

There are four different balconies you can decorate: New York, Paris, London and Tokyo, each providing a different view of the world.

It's a unique game that offers a chance to escape the outside world and focus on a small haven you can decorate with plants of all shapes and sizes in a meditative and novel experience.
