About

I took this Ludum Dare a little more relaxed than previous ones, which was nice! This was originally going to be a compo game, but at the deadline and decided I wanted to polish it a little more, so I entered the jam instead. On the third day, my wife jumped in and helped create the background art.

I enjoyed making it, and I’ll definitely be releasing a post-compo one with more levels, so stay tuned for that. Let me know if you have any ideas you’d like to see in the game :)

Just had another thought, could be interesting to have levels in other seasons, where the plants and environment (and challenges) are a bit different!

It was very cute and a lot of fun!  Unfortunately, the music wouldn't load (I'm on safari though, which has caused issues with other games).  Really enjoyed the art!  One minor thing was the text before the "next" screen skipped by to fast for me to read.

It'd be cool if the seeds looked a bit different in seed form!  

Aw, yeah the seeds are meant to look different, but I think the filters I used to create them aren't supported in Safari :(  I just uploaded a new version where I baked the filtered sprites in, hopefully that fixes it for you!

*applause* that was fun!

maybe change the glowing soil to a red pot? Just makes more sense thematically.

Other Ideas:
 - a lotus seed planted underwater to make lillypads you can jump across.
 - a helicopter/dandelion seed that can't jump very high but can glid
 - a slow growing seed that needs 2 nights to grow
