1·Story

Synopsis

What a naive beginning for a corrupt world.

At​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​of​ ​the​ ​game,​ ​our​ ​character,​ ​who​ ​finds​ ​himself​ ​in​ ​the​ ​middle​ ​of the​ ​flames,​ ​starts​ ​to​ ​get​ ​rid​ ​of​ ​his​ ​comfort​ ​zone​ ​and​ ​starting​ ​its​ ​journey.

2·Gameplay

Environment

Interaction with the corrupted beings.

Throughout​ ​the​ ​journey,​ ​Seed​ ​is​ ​witnesses​ ​to​ ​the​ ​poisoned​ ​surroundings, damaged​ ​nature​ ​and​ ​animals,​ ​which​ ​are​ ​hungry​ ​and​ ​taken​ ​away​ ​from​ ​their​ ​homes.​ ​

The positive​ ​effects​ ​that​ ​our​ ​character​ ​tries​ ​to​ ​create​ ​around​ ​will​ ​be​ ​destroyed​ ​by​ ​people anyway.​ ​

3·Mechanics

Circular Progression

It’s an ad-supported freemium game.

There​ ​is health​ ​and​ water​ ​bar​ ​for​ ​the​ ​character.​ ​​​Seed​ ​can​ ​store​ ​water​ ​by​ ​releasing​ ​its​ ​roots to​ ​the​ ​ground​ ​before​ ​the​ ​water​ ​runs​ ​out.​ With the same action, Seed can connect other trees’ roots for help them to progress in the game. ​

3·Mechanics

Rooting for Life

Interaction with the corrupted beings.

When all water​ ​bar​ is ​consumed,​ ​health​ ​bar​ ​also starts​ ​to​ ​decrease.​ ​But​ ​at​ ​the​ ​same​ ​time,​ ​Seed​ ​can​ ​regenerate​ ​its​ ​health​ ​bar​ ​after​ ​filling​ ​the water.

To Sum up

First Game Jam Ever

This game was developed during a game jam hosted by BUG.

We created the prototype in a limited time. It was our first jam experience. We learned that time is passing so fast when you are developing a game. We will keep developing our game and the story though. Thank you BUG for a great jam.
