by angrygeometry - Jam Entry

you are a worm from the sea.
the sea is safe.
don't leave the sea.
you have no hope of becoming a tree.

three different endings. contains swearing.

arrow keys to move
alt + enter to go into windowed mode

made with rpg maker 2003

this theme left me very uninspired, i struggled to come up with anything at all. decided to jam in the hopes that something would come on the last day and i guess i finished so yeah.

Really liking this so far, awesome ambience/music and dialogue. I wish more people used RPGmaker still !!
I'm stuck as the turtle on the starting beach though, what do I do next??

played through from start to finish, really liked it a lot.
The world is really cool and fun to explore and the music+ the colours go together well to make an odd mood/vibe

nice. i like the style of this game. the audio is great too, but the text is very hard to read, letters kinda meld together.

I played this to the end. Don't be scared by the GFX, the story and mood is very strong in this one. enjoyed my ride. You somehow managed to get me feeling in the end. Well done.

Yeah... finished it. Good idea, though I can't say I appreciate the humor.

Nice Idea, die to proceed. I like, good job.

I don't know what to say that was pretty rad, I really liked the music, and the story. I actually left feeling pretty good after playing it.

The arrow controls do not work. Windows 7 64 bit.

This is delightful. A gentle world with a benevolent guide, ultimately trapped by its aesthetic ideals. Aww.

i like the living butt the best of all the forms, so cute and rumpy. i appreciate that you didn't use rpgmaker combat and made this about the story. very cool game.

I am the king of bladders! As expected a nice bled of weird, inspiring and 'what on earth did I just play?' Is there any way of becoming a not-tree? Or is is a single ending?

there are three endings! once you gain all four forms, it's a good idea to save and go exploring for the other two! they're quite hidden.

thanks for the feedback guys, and for playing my dumb game!

Guys, lets agree NEVER to pick evolution, or a theme where we cant think of anything, EVER AGAIN!

What the hell?
I ended up as a "Dark Fucker" before quitting.
Still good storyline.

Really cool strange experience. Reminds me of Space Funeral for obvious reasons.

Wah! This is awesome! Strange and intriguing. I liked how the tree said the fake ones look nothing like the real thing, and they were pixel-perfect, lol.

Haha, this game was really odd, but well done. Kept me intrigued until the end. The graphics... well, it fitted well with the sense of humour, as did the music- it sounded very similar to the music in dwarf fortress though in parts.

Overall, upon first impression one would think this is one of those crappy half-assed entries, which I assume was very much intentional. But right from the start, with the dialogue, you know its actually going to be awesome. Which it was. Particularly the story and audio, and the end.

Really cool and weird game. I liked the writing a lot.

Wow, very imaginative, made me wish I had been a little less conventional with my entry. I thought this had a lot of atmosphere, and the humour/weirdness was just my sort of thing. Loved it
