I really loved this game. I played it before and just now and the experience was great both times. The music is lovely and the game is quick to learn. I think the description is a really clever way to get around the limitation and I wish more people did that. My only issues are that there is no win condition and that the wolves always win.

On my seconds play-through, right after I got my ass handed to me by wolves, I thought that maybe by planting the harmful red mushrooms and leading the wolves to them, I would be able to kill them. I was quite disappointed when they just ignored them and I got chomped.

When I played it again now, I wanted to see how long I could last, knowing all that the game has to offer. I lasted four nights, with a wall of trees next to the lake, farms for both types of mushrooms, a grass farms and all the cups I could find (around 7 or 8 I think). I even found a way to pass the wolves by leading them to the top of the screen and then running under them. One night, I alt-tabbed to watch a YouTube video during the night, until I heard fast and repeated wolf bites. When I tabbed back, I was dead...

The only bug I found was that if you hold Space when your inventory for that item is full, the sound plays repeatedly.

One of the best games in this jam. Good work! :D

Thank you for playing! Whew, I was very nervous about the game engaging a player in the late game.

As quite many people now tell me about red mushrooms, I wonder why didn't I come up with this simple idea before :/

The lake is designed to be both a source of life and to be the biggest trap. Wolves always spawn off the screen, but they are more likely to spawn around the lake. So maybe you got the most unfortunate night and wolves squeezed through your wall :) The best strategy in this game is to plant resources all over the map and not to sit on one place.

Or maybe the monster of the dark ate you right after your campfire ran out.

I think I will make a little update to this game, but after the voting process of Mini Jam.

At first the game seems slow and then the wolves show up and you wish you had more time to prepare.  Still wish there was a way to fight the wolves.  I felt I was out in the wilderness and you really captured the feel.  It is a little weird that there are just first aid kits and things laying around, but I guess they are from other eaten campers.  A nice touch might be on replay that your discarded items are laying around.  Still really well done.

That's a nice idea on replayability! But it can turn into a negative loop, making every run harder if you don't regrow the environment quickly. Tricky, but still a good suggestion.

Wolves were made as an inevitable danger on purpose. I thought about taunting them with food or stuff, about an end game where you, e.g., find a flare launcher (I guess that's how it is called?) to be saved, but unfortunately I didn't came up on how to add this end game without making replays extra short once you find out how to do it. Maybe next time!

I made a trailer, bc hell yeah! Still this isn't a short game so it might be useful.
