Hey! It's not working for me, stuck on title screen in both the embedded and the web link, in Google Chrome!

A very warm experience! And features snails, which is absolutely amazing ( ;-) ).

It worked in Firefox!
First game on the compo that made me giggle! Sweet sweet ending! Very short, but very cool, gave me ideas to explore a snail RPG mechanic where you carry and decorate your own home. Man awesome, and heart warming! :)

Pressing space to start doesn't do anything in Safari or Chrome so I'm stuck at the title screen.

A lovely story. This has the makings of the next Gruffalo.

(I could not run in Chrome but it ran in Firefox).

Does not work for me in Chrome, so am unable to provide a score.

All the rhyming! and such sweet art! It has the look and feel of a children's book. Very sweet. The final animation sequence was just so great.

OMG Super cute! I loved the story and the art was amazing. There was a jaw drop moment when I realized that they had a home all along. Loved the rhyming scheme. This was great! I might go back to this one :)

this game is adorable, although the font could be better

Dec 13, 2016 @ 2:28am

Great! It's structured just like a children's story, with repetition and evolution in nice balance. If there were voice acting my son would love it!

Dec 13, 2016 @ 7:07am

What a charming game! It definitely warmed my heart. Enjoyed the art style a lot.

This game is very important.

Very cute game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Dec 16, 2016 @ 6:46pm

Cool storybook feel to it. Great message.

I'm a huge sucker for these story games, and this was great. I could see it as a children's picture book or something. The art is really adorable and goes well with the story. I love the rhymes and narrative. Totally went "awwww!" at the end. The sound effects were kind of funny, but they helped serve the purpose of the story.

This really reminded me of a childrens book. Great job with the art and story. The end location looks really good.

It works with Firefox, but tapping space isn't enough : spacebar must be pressed a bit.

The game run smoothly in Chromium. Liked the story. A beatiful short tale for kids.

Dec 16, 2016 @ 9:28pm

First of all, maybe I need sorry for my bad english XD
No music? :'( But nice animal voices anyway.
The art is lovely :) Just need some polishment on the pixels but the colors are harmonic.
Lovely story tho :)

Also I learned something today: a wombat looks more like a tiny bear or ground hog than it does a bat.

Seriously though I played this with my 2 year old and she absolutely loved it so thanks for that.

Great use of the theme-- maybe put some collision detection on the animals?

Dec 16, 2016 @ 10:07pm

Nice job on drawing all these in the 48 hours.
Feels like a childs book :)

Dec 16, 2016 @ 10:31pm

Nice story ! More than a game, it would do a great book for children !!! Art was pretty nice. :)

Nice art and cute story, it felt like a visual fable, and I believe it could totally work as an interactive book for kids. Great job!

I liked the art and dialogue, very very unique... Some music is what I felt was missing. Well done :D
