Interesting game, the graphics are pretty neat, especially for a compo. Gameplay was limited, but has some potential, but overall, quite nice!

I love nature inspirations. Show respect for life it self and that's good design sign.

I liked the music.

That's promising for a first try.
There's not much to say as there isn't much content but I really like the music, found it funny :D

Welcome in the gamedev world, you can already be proud just for finishing a game! <3
Great entry!

The first thing I noticed was that in the intro cutscene (great job getting one into an LD entry by the way), the text rendering broke a bit and the right-hand column of pixels just didn't show up on some letters, making it hard to read.

The animation on the ant was basic, but still great, and I liked the art style, even if it was a bit simplistic. The music was the same really - simple, but I liked it. As a whole package, the game is consistent and that's the best thing to get nailed straight away - artistic cohesion.

There's not much else to say really, but I did enjoy it and laughed when I got to the end and suddenly won - I wasn't expecting it to be over quite so quickly. If you decide to continue it though, add a bit more in terms of content. I think that's my only real complaint apart from the text thing. Good job overall!

As danielilett mentioned, the text cutting off was a bit odd, but the intro cutscene was cute! I liked the music and how it built upon the music in the cutscene. Game was really simple and quick, but now that you've made the first level, you should be able to make lots more and make it a full game. One note: it would be better if the camera tracked a little farther in front of your ant. Congrats on making your first game!
