Forest Mind

by Lissaring - Jam Entry

Update: Stand alone downloads are found on the page if you wish to go that route! Just scroll down a bit to find them.

Your body may be planted into the ground, but your mind is free. Recreate the world around you and find a way to free your body.

Left and right arrows change seasons, up and down reforms the forest around you.

A bit of a liberal interpretation of the theme! I ended up making a second that more closely adheres to it.

Either this is very creepy or it didn't work properly on my computer. Great graphics, anyway.

Quite a cool game! Has a nice atmosphere and is very relaxing to play (: I like how you find out how to do particular things over time, really adds up for exploration! 4/5 !

Interesting concept, but hard to understand how to play (I mean to achieve any relevant result), or maybe it didnt work properly in my case.

Cool! It took me a while to get, but I did manage to get to the end. It would be nice to have some more direct feedback on the actions of the player, like making it more clear that you take stuff with you once it's in your circle. Also, at first I didn't know the shrine was the shrine.

Next to that, I really enjoyed it! Neat little experience :)

Very soothing experience. I felt a little lost, but I enjoyed exploring what the game had to offer and figuring things out for myself.

I didn't arrive to the end. The mood was great. The music was a bit repetitive, but still gave the mood a special note. Graphics are fantastic.

Loved the pixel art and atmosphere. But didn't quite understand the story.

What a lovely game. I realy enjoyed the colordesign

Dec 12, 2014 @ 12:21am

This was a pretty and colorful-looking game. The game drag-and-drop/screen switching worked with the theme pretty well.

I liked atmosphere and sound very much, but i think that game should be mo responsible to player's actions. Anyway, it full of mystery and has nice art.

That's a really nice entry ... !
Beautiful pixels and super cool effect. Impressive !!

I don't know if you interested, but I've written a fragment shader that kind of look like your awesome effect.
You can see it here :

Anyway, great work !

Beautiful, loved the theme/atmosphere of the game!
Had a hard time figuring it out, since you didn't wrote in the description that you can use your mouse.

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. 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.
