Very nice and unique entry. Graphics are cool and Gameplay is very well designed. Difficulty curve is also perfectly ballanced. You manage to keep the player going until the very end thanks to the new gimmicks. I felt like that could push it even further but you probably stopped at the right time to not become mind breaking. Very relaxing game, great job !

Pretty cool entry, game play was pretty intuitive, the art and audio fit well together with the overall game. Nice job.

The way that you control the vine is pretty interesting, and the puzzles are challenging enough that you have to think about which direction to go when changing directions. Overall good job :D

Nice puzzle game! Graphics are cute, but the game is pretty confusing at the fisrt try from my point of view (but acctualy i'm just not so good at puzzle solving games ;p). Well done guys!

Woah! this might be the best game that I've played from LD37! Maybe even better than Violent Room. Perfectly balanced puzzle, audio and art fit together nicely... Perfect!

Is a different concept of one room, interesting game! When you learn how to play it is fun. Good job.

Really cute. There is a big amount of work on the aesthetic. The mood is quiet. A fun experience. Well done ++

The best entry I've played so far. It was so enjoyable to play all through the ending!
Good visuals, flawless mechanics, scared goats, what else could we expect?

I was confused with the controls at the beginning but it turned out to be trial-and-error-piece-of-cake to learn.

Good job guys! 40/40

Very nice graphics! You did something not obvious with the theme. Thanks for your game :)

Really fun, nice and unique! I didn't get the vine controls right away, but after I understood, it was really challenging! :)

I loved how you put the progression and how the level was designed, really great work in there!

Visuals also rock! Nice work on the graphics! Together with the music, they give that really chill mood! Well done in both!

Cheers!
