Bloom: Roots of Renewal
Bloom: Roots of Renewal is an expansion to the previous WolverineSoft Studio game Bloom: Tome of Power (2020). Explore unique areas, find new weapons, and defeat more enemies.
Bloom: Roots of Renewal is created by a 20-person team at the University of Michigan's WolverineSoft Studio, a semester-long voluntary student games studio. It is an educational case study on Bethesda's Quake, and takes inspiration from its game mechanics as well as other games in the genre. Work on the expansion of Bloom took place between September 2021 and December 2021.

My thoughts on this game!
6/10. Took me 47 minutes to beat this game and it was good. I liked the level design,weapons and playing trough the game. Seems like this is an improvement over the first game but not by much i would say. Main downside of this release is that its poorly optimized.
whoa i'm greatly surprised!
I like the selection of wands, I mainly use the green to spam enemies but when that runs out, I then use blue then switch back. The yellow is great for the big enemies because they're hard to miss. I only use the big red explosive wand as a mobility tool.
AMAZING GAME DEV
Nice vid, thanks for checking this out!
only 27 more years until they release Bloom Eternal
Very cool update to a very cool game. Well done!
Obviously had a ton of thought put into it, the level music is AMAZING. All the different spells are lots of fun, too :D
I'm really enjoying playing this expanded version of Bloom: Tome of Power! The controls feel great, the variety of combat options adds depth to the gameplay, and I love all the new enemy types and level challenges!
