Head of the Growth Department is a game about self-care. This hard and continual work can help someone feel grounded and stable in their day-to-day life; but it is also a very daunting task. In the game, your goal is to tend to the garden of your mind. Each chore, like watering plants and providing fertilizer, task the player with mini-games representing some sort of self-care. Watering the plants for example, is a representation of meditation, the fertilizer game is a balance game of focus, and planting is a metaphor for unearthing your feelings. 

Players can enjoy a simple garden and enjoy their time, or they can take on more challenging levels to see if they can handle the anxiety.
