Really well done! I love the visual and the musics - fills my viva pinata itch as well.

Amazing... Love the game. Like a freaky tower defence. Hit some sort of framerate crash on my Chrome/W8 laptop at 65 creatures (top left indicator), but was smooth as anything up to then. Great job!

I played the game until it started lagging so much it was impossible to continue. It was a very interesting experience for as long as it worked, though, but even though a lot was happening on the screen, the player didn't have to do that much. I would definitely like to see this with more gameplay possibilities. It was still enjoyable enough to give it a shot ;)

Great entry! Loved the planting and watching the animals defend their homes. Graphics and Music are spot on.

Awesome game! Loved it!
At some point when biodiversity was around 130+, game for some reason grew very laggy and slow :)

Really fun mechanic, and it feels very polished for a 48-hour entry. My favorite music track so far this LD, awesome work.

Awesome graphics. And the music is some of the best I've ever heard for a LD game.

I have a quite old computer and I had to stop playing after a while because the frame rate was getting lower and lower.

music is excellent, and I love the gameplay. it actually got bogged down when I get about 50 animals on the screen.

Gameplay idea is really fun and artwork is great.
But, maybe, it needs a little optimization (after 70+ game transformed into slideshow).

Really enjoyed the graphics and audio, well polished too!
To improve all you need to do is add some variety (eg. more attackers/defenders) and it would be awesome! Possibly the performance too, as it became unplayable once I had about 160 biodiversity points

Music is decent, and I like the visuals! Pretty good game overall.

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.
