I enjoyed this short game! I think you tied the theme of boredom very well with the actual gameplay! (I hope doesn't come off the wrong way!) There are some improvements that could be made. For example, the way the character slides after moving could be improved to just get them to stop immeditely after the player's input ends. Also, some more messages about the character's emotions and thoughts would be nice, as I ran into a few repeats. These are just small things that I noticed, but you made a cute game regardless! I made a video with my experiences and I hope you continue making great games!
Thanks for playing!
Also, yay, I'm glad you got the message I was trying to convey! The island challenge is supposed to prepare the character for grown-up life which is filled with loneliness and tedious tasks. On top of that, there's the fact that despite doing those tedious tasks like he's supposed to, sometimes all he gets to harvest is blue flowers (disappointment) and he has to accept that in order to be able to make room for orange flowers (growth). :D
Sorry for the slippery character, this was my first time trying to implement walking in a game and I guess I got used to the slipperiness after testing it so much. When I make an actual non-game jam farming simulator one day, I'll keep that in mind.
Played the game and really enjoyed it however tbh i didnt have a clue what i was doing hahaha
Thanks for playing! The way to win the game is to water and harvest all the flowers, both orange and blue. There isn't a pattern, just a 50% chance of the flower being blue. (And yeah, I should've added a short tutorial at the start, haha.)
Hi. I adore this game. It really touched me, and I expect I'll be thinking about it for a long while. Thanks for making and sharing this.
I loved the game! I just kind of randomly found it from the front page, but I played it all the way through and succeeded. Not sure if my strategy actually helped, but I only watered orange flowers until I had no choice but to water harvest the blue. The music was really nice and I overall really liked it :)
