If you do your game in Unity, please consider building binaries, so that people in Linux (like me) can also play. Thanks!

Great Idea. This was really cute and something I have not seen before.

I got to 5600 points, they wouldn't grow anymore so I didn't know what to do. But other than that it was cool :)

Nice concept, but it gets a little bit tedious after a while. With some balancing and expansion of the gameplay this can become something awesome! :)

Hey, thanks for comments. As to not growing, I believe you should still get points, but in the options there is a setting for 'Allow Overgrowth' - this was turned off by default to stop it getting too out of hand.

I like the AI. They actually seem natural. With a small bit of work, they could be fantastic.

As a side note, increase the max number of pixel lights in the 'quality' window. That will help.

Nice concept. It does get a bit boring though...

And who said that watching grass grow can't fun? ,)

A little more relaxing then many of the other games, I liked the idea and art, very atmospheric! The music, for some reason, didn't fit that well with everything else for me /it wasn't jarring though/ - I woud have gone for something more ambient, but it may be just me...?

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
