    Well this is literally watch them grow! Not that much to it really, very simple, but I don't think it's meant to be anything else than that. I meant to go half/half with carrots/onions but accidently planted an extra carrot... so I had to play it again to make sure I got nice matching numbers :D

    The music and rain make it a very chill game to play too.

    Well done!

      There is indeed little more to it :). I had a much larger scope in mind at the start but eventually it turned out to be this. Nothing more, nothing less. I can relate to that number matching. Just felt the urge to lay out the crops on the field nicely when testing the game :D

      Thanks for the feedback!

    It's a very simple, calming kind of game, I like it, very peaceful :)

    Pretty zen, I like the bluntness of it. What you see is what you get, no tricks to try to hide it.

    What I'd like to have seen is some agency in the growing, maybe adding fertilizer or watering the plants so you have a more active role, but besides that, I think you pretty much accomplished what you set out to do, namely watching em grow.

      I considered both fertilizer and watering but they didn't make it in eventually. I agree that both could definitely be a valuable contribution to the gameplay. Thanks for the feedback!

    Fits the theme perfectly and I like carrots. Well done

    I did, in fact, "watch them grow." I got like 60 carrots and a few onions by the end. Is there an end?

      No, there isn't, really. I considered adding an auto-save feature so you could continue where you left off but that didn't make it in eventually. So it's really just that: plant and watch them grow.

      Thanks for the feedback!
