Media quotes:

“...the perfect thing to look forward to after 2020.” – Gamespot

Player quotes:

“Kinder World is a rewarding game, in the same way that growing plants in real life is not complex, but ends up being extremely satisfying. It’s a place to come visit for a touch of kindness in your day-to-day.” – Bulsy

“It’s adorable…taking care of a small plant that takes care of a small piece of you. “ – Montgomery

“Your plants grow uniquely like in real life. There’s awesome mutations, and they get cute hairstyles depending on how they grow – and there’s a doggo! It helps you chill even just for 5 minutes, and makes you think about the positives in life. You find yourself being more optimistic, even as a realist like myself!” BabyBelle
