Interplanetary Plant

by floattoint - Jam Entry

We (LittleFinix and igwb) created this game together. It was the first time we participated as a team.

In the game you play as an interplanetary plant that somehow manages to grow in space, connecting planets.

Please run the game as 720x576.

Scroll the camera with WASD or the arrows keys. Place a new element by klicking on an existing one.

This is a very cool idea! I'd love to see this expanded into a full game. It took me a while to figure out how to get water in the first place, since you have to click very close to the planet in order to draw roots. Also 13 planets seemed a bit tedious, would be nice to have faster stem-drawing tools.

It took me a few tries to get the mechanics down and the constant clicking and dragging got a bit tedious, but it's definitely an interesting idea. I could easily see a more full game being made out of this concept.

I had some trouble in the beggining but cool concept.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
