Super happy with the theme as ever since playing Waking Mars, I’ve wanted to make a game about playing with an ecosystem. I haven’t posted any screenshots here yet, but here’s one from a few moments ago:

There’s only one kind of plant right now, but you plant seeds which grow if the soil humidity is right, and they’ll spread their own seeds once they’ve matured and flowered. (Humidity is indicated by the soil colour, the bluer the wetter it is.)
I don’t think there’s going to be a goal at all, just a sandbox to play around in. I’ll be adding more plants, maybe animals, maybe insects if I get time, maybe weather, maybe light/dark and plant preferences for that. A whole lot of maybes, basically!
