You wake up on a grassy plane in front of a giant egg. There's a seed with the letter "S" on it, and a hole as well. What will hatch from the egg?

In this game, you plant seeds in holes and gain abilities from the chests that grow from the seeds.

CONTROLS:
Arrow keys to move
corresponding keyboard letter keys for abilities.
You can only hold one seed at a time

Prepare yourself for whatever will hatch from the large eggs.

Made with GameMaker Studio

Good job! It was a fun game. Took a little while until I understood what to do, but when I did, I had a great time ^^

I could do with clearer instructions and maybe a sharper difficulty curve, but overall it was a fine game. Also, when you export your game, in the "save as type" menu you can set it so that everything is packed into a single .exe file and you don't have to go through the installer.

Nice game! Even though it took a while (for me also) to understand how to play it.

Tophat Demon I thought the link is an exe file? I'm pretty sure I exported it as exe.
Thanks for playing everyone! I wish I made a more variety of enemies haha

I didn't really understand what I was supposed to be doing, but it used the theme quite creatively. Good job :)

Fun game, but at one point I got stuck and could only move vertically.

Interesting game. I like the idea of obtaining different abilities! Esp once you get the hammer it gets interesting. I like the upgrades, but they don't seem to make a difference?

I think I had found almost all the seeds, but then I think I upgraded the bow from gold back to standard, and it crashed with:

FATAL ERROR in
action number 1
of Step Eventobj_parrow
for object obj_slime_blue:

Variable <unknown_object>.<unknown variable>(100010, -2147483648) not set before reading it.
at gml_Object_obj_slime_blue_Collision_4

i think "corresponding keyboard letter keys for abilities" was a mistake, close keys is better, i didn't like have my hand all over the keyboard for use different weapons...
