This game feels very polished! I really liked the atmosphere that gives! Nice job! °°

Developer

Thank you very much! We are currently working on developing it further! =D

Great graphics!!! Was very excited to see a TD game! Had a lot of fun playing and thought you had a really fun take on the genre! Great work!

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much, means a lot for us! We are super happy to know you had fun playing it!
We are currently working on developing it further! =D

really good 3d Models and animation. but the ui cover each other in my screen so i can't place the plant or press the next wave buttons

Developer

Thanks for trying it out.
I'm sorry for the screen size issue :(
We still struggle with Godot UI. In the future updates we will improve on that.

Submitted

Absolutely grate 3D models, and total look of the game, it is really great drawn and created. It would be great if there was ability to lvl-up plants by stacking them, something like 2 morningstars => Syper Morningstar and so on. Really cool idea and realisation! :)

Developer

Thank you very much for your feedback and appreciation of the game! Unfortunately we ran out of time on creating a tutorial. Currently you can level up the plants by merging 3 of the same type together! And it's a power of 3 continuously on growing them in power. Each time you merge 3 of the same tier, they get stronger and stronger!

Here is an example of the merging mechanic if you wish to give the game another go!

Thank you again!

Oh, see now. Will try it again :)

The visuals and mechanics are super good, but in my case (because of my screen size 1920x1080) the cards took almost a third of the screen space and I couldn't click the next wave button because of that.

Also I run out of space to grow new plants very quickly, and I couldn't figure out the merging thing (probably again because the screen size).

Other than that, it's a very nice looking game and could be worked on after the jam!

Hi, I'm sorry for the screen size issue :(. We still don't really understand how the UI works in Godot and we struggle a lot with it.
Sadly because of the screen size you probably also couldn't place the plants in the bottom "bench" area that had 9 slots for your plants to idle in.

We will improve on the game in the future and a UI rework is definitely planned. Hope you will give it another go then.
Thanks for trying it out!

Yeah I will try it! In the project settings you can set the window to keep aspect ratio when changing size.

The 3D models and animations look amazing. Liked the inclusion of cardgame mechanics. It could have been shown better where enemies were going to come and I would loved to hear some sound effects.

Developer (1 edit)

Glad you liked them :D. We got a lot of feedback on the telegraphy side so we will definitely do an update there.
Regarding sound unfortunately we don't have very much experience so we decided to just focus on other things. But we will definitely include this as well in the future updates.

Thank you for trying out our game!

Submitted

This is a really cool blend of genres! All the mechanics felt familiar in a great way. Nice job!

Developer

Thank you! We had this idea at the beginning of the jam and thought to give it a go. We're glad you liked it!

Submitted

it was a fun tower defence game, I really liked it. I liked the artistic style as well, Good Job!

Developer (1 edit)

Thank you very much, we're super happy to know you had fun playing it! We will improve it further with upcoming updates :D

Submitted

Great idea! Could benefit from some SFX and perhaps a clearer tutorial on the merging mechanic. Otherwise lots of fun and cool art!

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much for your feedback! We are extremely happy you enjoyed playing the game! We plan on improving the tutorial area and adding sounds in the future. =)

Submitted

Awesome, I look forward to playing the updated version. This was a great submission!

Developer

Amazing, thank you very much for encouragement! 

Submitted

Okay so I seem to be the only one having merging issues lol, which prevents me for going to bigger waves, but fun game nonetheless

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much for playing ! Did you try to drag & drop 2 of the same plants over the 3rd one? This is a little snippet that might help you: 

If it does not work like this, let us know and we will start bug hunting! :D They hurt our plants, lol

Submitted(+1)

Yeah my bad, found out after a while that you had to drag two plants to make it happen! So no bug here haha, congrats for your game!

Developer(+1)

Awesome! Glad to know you enjoyed playing the game! We plan to improve the tutorial and merging mechanics in the future! :D

Submitted

Nice, looking forward to it! c: 

Submitted

Nice one, ui a bit unintuitive

Developer

Thank you very much! We did not manage to add a tutorial and more UI elements before deadline, but we plan on developing the game further ! :D

Submitted

i liked how you could merge them. it was fun that you got to choose any plant that you wanted. it was cool and i liked the picture. it was cool

Thank you very much for trying the game! We are super happy to know you had fun and you liked the merging mechanic! :D

Submitted

Cool game.  I'm not sure if I was using the merge mechanic correctly or if you can have more than one plant merged at a time.

Developer (1 edit)

Thank you very much for trying the game! We are happy to know that you enjoyed playing it!

You can currently merge plants with no limit currently, like this: 

- 3 of default tier 0 = 1 plant-turret of tier 2 . 

- 3 plants of tier 2 merged together = 1 plant-turret of tier 3. And you can go even further like this, currently! 

Hope it helps! We plan on continue adding features and fixing current issues with the game, after voting ends :D
