I found the item responsible for the war, a jar, and 9 gems. I took the first item (I think its a plant of some kind) and tried to use it in the area I spawned in. it seemed to trigger the end of the game... I like your music and animations.

Shame this didn't get finished, something real cute was going on with what was here!

And I plan on keeping it cute!

I couldn't figure out what to do after collecting the Lotus Flower - or even if I DID actually collect it, since when I swung the bottle at it, the bottle didn't seem to contain it, and the leaves of the flower made the same animation if I slashed at it. I also couldn't figure out what the purpose of the gems were.

However, the movement was very smooth and felt nice to control. I really like the idea of equipping two items to two different buttons. The sprite / animation work was very visually pleasing; I particularly liked the enemy sprite, and the animation of the grass being cut. The characters avatar changing depending on what items were used is a really nice touch that adds a lot of charm.

There is some good groundwork here. If you expanded this, and applied a bit more purpose and direction, I can see something very nice growing out of this. Cheers :)

Yeah I only got done about half of what I wanted to do, but at least have a working Engine to build my full game off of! Glad you love the animation! The bush sprites aren't mine(Ben from Heartbeast) .   To "Finish" the game, after using the jar on the Flower it appears in your inventory.  Just use it like an item after that. just shows an alternate title screen and plays a secret track with extra art for the game.


I have updated the game since the jam ands plan on finishing it.

Glad you like my game mechanic

This is a really promising engine, I'm looking forward to seeing what you make of it in the future, great job. The animations are really good and the art is great too :)

I’m so glad you like the art! I started teaching myself gml and learning from Ben/Heartbeast just so I can create my world full of my ideas for others to enjoy. I’ve already starting working and adding stuff since the jam so keep an eye out if you would like ;)

Definitely did a really good job adhering to the theme, and good job for your first game jam entree.
