Your goal is to watch the plants grow. However, people keep getting in front of them, so you better get rid of those chatterboxes! Some aren't so bad however: if you chat to the right person instead of hitting them, maybe you'll even get some reward! You can also buy seeds from the people holding price cards!
left click - Hit / Plant a seed / Take a fully grown flower*
*unfortunately, picking a flower destroys your hand. Grown flowers are very toxic. :(
right click - Chat / Buy a seed
Each character in the game except the hooded guy were voiced by someone different! Here are the people people who participated:
Narrk (irl friend)
Keria (irl friend)
There were actually several others I didn't have the time to add! If I keep working on the game, it'll be interesting to involve more people :)
Aside these voices, all the assets in the game were made by me!
Sadly, I was very short on time for this one. I missed around 14 hours and on top of that I wasn't motivated enough, so I was easily distracted and didn't fully focus on the game. A shame considering the scope was incredibly good this time!
What I planned to add that would have been cool:
Each seed seller would give you a different seed (so the jelly character, Keria, would give you a "jelly seed" for example) and each seed would give a different flower!
Each flower would spawn different types of people. Since I didn't have the time to do that, the base flower spawns any of the NPC available.
Each flower would be unique and grow into something different. The jelly seed I mentioned earlier would, for instance, grow a jelly plant! On top of that, you'd be able to collect them.
If you would like to see a post-jam version, tell me!
Hitboxes are a mess! Characters would overlap/hide flowers even though they're not technically hidden.
The greetings from the hooded guy come from the wrong character, so they see they're a coin dealer while they sell seeds...
The cursor getting destroyed when picking a flower is a stupid mistake
I liked the art, though voices were bit unclear somethimes. It was easy to accidently hush NPC's away immediately when clicking my plant. I played until I accidently tried to pick my flower ^^" my hand got amputated :'( It was nice little game.
Really nice art and fun voices :D
I feel like I got pretty unlucky with the NPC spawns, getting lots of Ketts in a row was pretty annoying XD I fear for my poor mouse

I love the cutesy look you've got going on with this, the issue I found was that it was hard to differentiate between who I should be hitting and who I should be talking to so I found myself losing coins until I figured it out, I know you had some issues getting motivated which held you back but what you did make in the end turned out really cute and I think with the bugs squashed, it would be brilliant! Good job still :)
Really charming. My only issue is with the npc spawn rate, I felt like they popped up way to often.
Yeah, the NPCs spawn a bit too quick! :D The game is rather short, so I wanted to give it just the right amount of challenge to see the flower really slowly grow!
I wanted to create some sort of urgency when they arrive so that the player would quickly get rid of them, making them more susceptible to accidentally hurt coin donors / seed dealers if they go too fast
But the issue comes when several NPCs arrive together cause they tend to block several flowers at once :( And on top of that, one could get in the way of another (that said it's still doable!)
Thank you for playing! :D

The concept is really good and fits perfectly with the theme, it's fun to play. The bug destroying the hand left me wanting more hahaha
Why the pink blow $200 seeds cost more but gives u the same seed as others sellers?
Because I was short on time! :D All different NPCs have some sort of tier going on; so as the game progresses, you'd be able to get a different seed! (the initial idea was to have different type of plants/seeds)
When I made the balance (at the last minute), I kind of forgot they had a different price ... so I should have made that seller give you 2 seeds to compensate
The artwork and voiceacting made for a charming and entertaining time. Kwis characters are all drawn so well
