Great prototype! Very polished for a simple game.

Full playthrough/review here:


Thank you very much for this, it's so helpful to see you playing it live!


It was really a nice and relaxing experience. I liked the graphics.

Perhaps sand could have been placed at the transitions to water, but everything went well together.

Unfortunately, there was a problem that 'softlocked' my run twice. The wombat got stuck in the upper left corner and locked me in.

All in all a great Game =)

Thank you! Agreed with the feedback - I gotta do some pathfinding & steering or something.


I really like the feel of the game. It's very serene. I think it would be really fun to make it sort of like that lady that looks for cool treasure on the river banks in the UK. Or maybe parts of a larger thing... 

I'm not a fan of pixel art but it's fantastic for the style its in. 


Thank you! Haha I'm not familiar with that - is that lady in real life or a movie or something?


The game has a really sweet feeling! It is almost meditative walking around on that island making friends with the wombat.

I overall like the music, it has some quirky randomness to it.

Like you wrote, it's obviously not a finished game, but it feels like you can build on top of it and go in many different directions. The wombat is a cool sidekick and I look forward to seeing how the player and the wombat can interact more.

Perhaps the wombat needs more than just one apple to be befriended? Perhaps they need rewards each time they found a coin, at least until X coins have been dug up?

The graphics is spot on, it shows that you really know what you're doing in that department.


Cool, those were the feelings I was hoping to invoke!

100% agree with your thoughts on more interaction with the wombat (more food, etc.)

Thank you very much!

And for full disclosure (in case you didn't see the credits) I didn't write the music - found it here:


Shame on me for not looking at the credits!
