Grow: Song of the Evertree’s review – one continuous melody

I Worlds of Alaria they are slowly fading. L’Eternal Tree, whose branches housed an infinite number of worlds, is getting smaller and smaller and its splendor is fading: all this because of theWithering. Nobody knows how to grow the Eternal Tree, how to restore it to its former glory, how to save all worlds. Now everything seems lost, abandoned.

We have to destroy rocks, wooden planks, pull weeds and, where required, we have to plant seeds of plants and water them.

At first these efforts of ours seem quite useless but, suddenly, something catches our attention. A song, delicate and sweet, that only we can hear. We therefore discover that the I sing is what these worlds need. To activate them, in a sense, we have to rwelcome all our energies and sing.
