I made an account just to comment how much I love this game. I love the nostalgic feeling and the mystery surrounding it. I was instantly sucked into the world and wanted to know more about everything in it. Great game!

No one uses 32bit linux these days

I had a lot of fun playing through this game. I made a walkthrough for anyone that wants to know how to find all the starseeds or just listen to some commentary.

This game is dripping in aesthetic, and I absolutely love it! Excellent job!

(+2)

What are the odds we'll ever see that alternate ending?

(+1)

I want to see continued

Thank you for this hidden GEM

I really really really like this game

Absolutely wonderful, as always! The visual effects, the color scheme, the fishies, everything was on point. A great short story.

(+1)

This reminded me of running around Xen in Half Life. I know it was made for a jam, but I really hope you expand the game as I would love to see more. 

(+2)

Now this a a real game! I truly enjoyed it and its so classic! I really love what you've done, very creative and entertaining! I love the graphics too! Keep up the amazing work! You're amazing.

i really liked this game, you/you guys are very creative!

Thanks for the upload, It works perfectly now! :)

A linux version would be lovely, some characters are not visible with wine.
I love the aesthetic, it reminds me of playing the scary sections of Harry Potter games on my old toaster of a PC =)
Not joking or saying it lightly : it reminds me of Dark Souls' atmosphere as well.
I also dreamed I played  a vastly expanded version of this game after a very short session, so it seems it left quite the impact !

I have no way of testing a Linux build, but it would be easy to make one. I just make no promises about the amount of bugs in it!


[Edit] The build is up now, go ahead and give it a try!

(+2)

Loved it. Here's $10.

I like the Dragon Slayer 'easter egg' that the knight-guy holds

(+2)

Ha! You're the first person to point that out! Thanks for playing!

Not a problem, btw, where was the other 'special' seed? D:<

You were actually extremely close to it at one point, it's outside the giant tree! I should let you know that there is no special ending with them though. I originally planned to use them for something but ended up cutting that feature. I just left them in for fish aesthetics.

MAN, I climbed all over that tree and missed it?! Even climbed to the Tippity-top!!

Wish there was a Mac version, looks really cool

I'm working on resolving a bunch of Mac specific issues, so hopefully there will be one soon!

Aight, cool

(+1)

There is a Mac version available now!

Rad! Will download!

Left a rating. as I said in the rating this game was fun and enjoyable keep up the awesome work :)

That was a genuine treat to play, really looking forward to whatever you make next!

I had a great time playing this. Excellent work crafting the world. I recorded a gameplay clip for the itch.io YouTube channel:

(+1)

Oh wow, thank you for playing!!!

Hey! This game is great so far, i really like your games. But im stuck! I can't find the third seed. Can you help me? 

(+2)

A perfect blend of precision platforming, beautiful aesthetic, problem solving, enigmatic narrative and immersive atmosphere. Bravo! Here's 10 bucks.

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

(+2)

This is dam incredible, I am truly inspired by this.

I hope to see more like this :)

Thank you so much!

(+3)

This is extremely good.

As Usual Gameplay from Z9ZGAMES Channel!!
With All Thanks to the Creator of the Game!!

(+4)

I love this so much. This world draws me in really badly, I just want to know more and more.

I would love to see an RPG based in this world. Or long adventure game. Just.. Anything.

Great work!

(+4)

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I managed to find both hidden "odd starseeds." Is there some secret I can hunt down with them? :D

(+4)

I originally planned something to do with them, but I cut it due to time constraints. Now they just have special aesthetic effects on the fish.

Fun fact: you can complete all of the color requests using only the rainbow odd seed! The color it gives you is random though, so it would probably take a while.

I would be interested in some kind of extended "directors cut" of some kind in the future if possible. The garden management kind of thing you got going with the fish and exploration focused gameplay loop in this game really scratches an itch for me. As does the mysterious and melancholy story and atmosphere. 

(+3)

This is amazing, a really enjoyable experience. Still thinking about what happened to that world...

Congrats!

Thanks for playing!

Nice game. I explored world, did all quests for the snake, but failed to find a way to free that knigh from his enchantment.

I only miss there one thing, like in every platformer that does that, way to grab edges of platforms.

(+1)

Have you tried offering the knight a fish that ate the grand starseed?

(1 edit)

I  tried to throw him some random fed fish, but he didn´t react to it. Anyway I will try it again with the grand starseed, thanks.

(+2)

this is so cool, i love this world

i have all the starseeds (even the odd ones) and am playing feed-the-fish to see if there's any combination I can get that seems like something i can give that dang armor fella, but no luck yet!

(2 edits)

I got the odd one that was near the start but I could not find the other one. Do you have any hints? I would like to 100% this game as its probably my favorite Modus Interactive game. 

(-1)

Take a look around the big tree ;)

(1 edit)

Pretty clever hiding spot! It never occurred to me to look up there so I never suspected it. Thank you for the great game. 

I feel like I've scoured the entire tree, and i still can't find it ;u;
