In the year 5987, around the star of Gliese 120, a unique planet sits in orbit.

This planet is known, among other things; for revolving around its star at a frequency of once every 10 seconds.

You hatch in the Spring, and emerge from the red sand to venture out into what nature has promised to be a short life. All of your siblings have died in gestation.

Arrow Keys: Move
Enter: Advance Dialogue

Awww, I hope my babies live. That audio is fantastic, best I've seen in the compo. The "yeah"s are endearing and the music is awesome.

I did it!! Honestly, I was a bit weirded out by this game at first. But the world is actually pretty full and interesting once you take a look around, and although the humor is a bit eccentric, it certainly made me chuckle.

Interesting game.

[spoiler alert?]
Also, The effects when you first see a Tarachnel nearly gave me a heart attack.

Yea I love this game.
But those enemies rustled my jimmies something fierce.
This game simultaneously has humor AND mood (humood..moomor..?)
I really enjoy the dialogue. and the whole world you crated, really.
That Yea is a trademark sound right there. I would definitely play more of this! Excellent game 5/5.

This was amazing. (Possible Spoiler) I had to change my pants the first time I ran into one of those spider things. (End spoiler). I really love the weird moody vibe in this one. Really beautiful work!

Nice game, a bit scary... One gripe would be that dialouge disappears after you press enter, even if you do so by accident... :(

Eeeep! I really like this game! Amazing, unusual atmosphere and A+ audio. My only issue was that I was a little unsure what to do, but I think that was part of the charm.
I want more of this, please make more :)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
