About

Developed with groundbreaking scholar and fungi activist Giuliana Furci, Hypha illuminates the importance of the fungi kingdom as the healing agent of Earth. This immersive journey begins with you as a spore in space. A meteorite takes you to Earth, and underneath the soil, you then grow into a hypha. You gather with other hyphae into a mycelium, acquire healing powers to communicate with trees, and transform toxic substances into positive nutrients.
