This was honestly one of the best game jam games I've played in a while (and I play a lot of game jam games). I made it about 7 days or so and explored three islands. I definitely would have played it all the way to completion if not for the permadeath. I respect the choice to design the game that way, but I was really starting to get in to things when I unfortunately died.
My only issue was the lack of water early on. Given the slow-ish movement speed and very small energy bar, it was a big hassle having to first build a bridge (when you're still learning what to do) and then truck water for minutes at a time to bring it home. Is there any penalty for not having enough resources when you go to sleep? There were a few times when I was missing one resource or the other and aside from a comment it seemed to be mostly forgiven.
Anyways, I thought this one was great! I enjoyed my time with it so I put together this short video. I'll keep an eye out for more cool stuff from you in the future!
