Your body is a field for flowers to bloom. 

And bloodbells to infect. And rot to, well, rot. Your dying body becomes the playing field for the game, withering away as the game progresses.


The gardener is kinda insane.

She is undead. She likes blood. She will get blood if you feed her blood.


The game has an ending! It's 10-15 minutes, hang in there!

This was really fun to play. I lost my first try because I, for some reason, thought the ‘remaining time’ was real-time, so I just spammed actions as fast as I could, not recognizing that ‘remaining time’ only ticked down every turn I took. Skill issue on my part, but my second run was really satisfying; very cool ending as well.

The game scratches a really particular itch; lining up a ton of crops and harvesting them all on a big turn feels really really good. Also I love your color selection from the p8 palette.

Thanks! Me and a friend got the idea to make a dating sim with that entity. Just for your information.
