Joel McDonald and the rest of his small team has announced that zen-like puzzler Prune will be out for iOS on July 23rd.

Peter of AppSpy previously went hands-on with the game as you can see in the video above.

The idea is that you're trimming off parts of a tree as it grows so that it reaches as high as possible, towards the sun.

Add meditative music and simple but beautiful visuals to it and you have a pleasant little package.

"It's all about the most elementary digital magic, the amplification of input: A simple swipe of your finger instantly connects you to the long tradition of shaping trees," says McDonald.

We'll let you know later in the week when the game is out that you can grab it for iPhone or iPad.
