Very nice game. I included it in my GoGodot Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Amazing.

Might be my favorite game from this jam.

Fantastic game. Great atmosphere, great gameplay and art as well! Loved the simple controls, and playing the game overall felt really nice. I had a lot of fun with this one.

Submitted

Loved it, really cool how you managed to make this so entertaining, making the branches grow and the plant as well is really satisfying and works really well ^^ congrats

Submitted

Impressive! How did you code the shape of each new segment?

Submitted

Brilliant game, brilliant artwork, nice controls, nice sounds, fits the theme perfectly. What more to ask? Maybe a font that required would work with less aliasing haha. Jokes aside, hats off!

Submitted

Really great, really unique idea and lovely coherent artwork. Nice job!

Submitted

I would play this game forever! It's a pretty fun game, maybe the controls are a bit counterintuitive, but once you get used to them it's pretty easy.

Submitted

Your art skills are awesome! Wow! The way you implemented the glow, the small rays that you added and the overall pixel art really take the atmosphere to the next level. And the music really fits the theme of the game and you feel like you have to grow your way out of danger. You can really feel the dread.

The gameplay is also very nice and unique, and the camera being zoomed in just enough so that  every time you make a move you never know if you're getting closer or further away from your goal really adds to the tension. Great job!

Very good. Music reminded me of "last of us" so much.

Submitted

Really neat.  Well done.  At first I thought the green "sunlight" was to be avoided lol.

Submitted

Nice game, fits the theme and I enjoyed it a lot!

I got stuck at some point in the bushes but I managed to glitch my way out somehow.

The art was really nice, loved the background. The music also fits the game very well.

Good job!

Submitted

Took a bit for me to get the controls but a lovely game :)

Very cool idea, well executed theme. Nice work!

Truly amazing.  My best is 1:16 on the last level!  I did occasionally grow myself into a tree and couldn't get out, but lets just call that a feature ;).

Submitted

Wowow Really cool game! One of my favorite things is how the artwork along with the music create this feeling of truly being in the canopy and the simultaneous ambient nosies along with eerie silence that you would experience there! The concept is very cool and I liked the resource management aspect of needing to collect sunlight using leaves. Great game and great submission! Thanks so much for this!

Submitted

One of those easy to play hard to master type of games and I am loving it! Took me awhile to understand the controls and how to make offshoots with leaves but it was a wonderfully relaxing game with perfect music to compliment the gameplay.

Submitted

Very clever! Great job, bro!

Submitted

This game are awsome! Congrats for the very good job!

Submitted

Very good art! Good Job!
