Very nice looking game. I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

I really liked this. Also I accidentally killed all my plants.

I LOVE the idea. Sort of a modern Harvest Moon. I think there's a huge amount of potential here and I really hope you go on to finish this game.

As mentioned, the plants wither way too quickly. I think the aesthetic is lovely and wouldn't suggest any changes. Holding Z to read text was a bit odd at first but I actually think it's a great idea - it allows people to choose their own reading speed in a simple and elegant way.

i like the game, it will be nice with some more things to check around...

Nice cartoon style - like a gb color game. :)

Really sweet game. Music is perfect for the theme. It runs well on 'wine' for you people stuck on linux.

My gardening skills suck just as much virtually as they do in reality though.

Darn, I watered the dog too, I thought I was being clever! :P

I actually quite like this, it's sweet and you could add a lot into it, even from just the exploratory/experimental part side. I liked just going around and reading things, especially the oven, lol. I managed to make the plants grow but they died so quickly, and the shop was closed so I couldn't get the vitamin spray! 0.o

I'd like to see you continue with this, it looks really nice.

On my first try I got my plants going, then proceeded to walk around everywhere and look at things. But then my plants died before I could harvest anything lol. :( Second try I succeeded and harvested a bunch of stuff! There are some minor issues like the movement feeling a lil weird and the plants withering very fast, but other than that I liked it! And the atmosphere in general was very cozy and nice :D

nice little world you have created!

@commodoreKid Yes! I plan to make it a bigger game now after the jam is over. :-) I had a lot of trouble during the first week since it was my first time trying to seriously code a game, but now I've learnt a lot about programming and will be able to rewrite the code much cleaner from scratch, so that it will be easy to work with the code. The game in the form it is now wasn't ever my plan, but it ended up this way since I ran out of time, haha. (Don't worry, nobody I showed the game to was able to keep the plants alive.... only me :-P)

This could become a gardening sim + adventure game very easily if you increase the number of places you can visit in a city and put a small story (or not) + make plantable seeds, customizable stuff at home and increase plant growth time dramatically, why not?

Plants wither too soon btw, I didn't have time to water them :(
