Gardening seems like a really good topic for spring! I've been trying really hard lately to make things grow, though I don't think I have a green thumb yet... :P Looking forward to seeing more, I love gardening games!

Woot for programmer art! This game looks to be mechanics driven. If so, I am very curious about your game design in that aspect. I like hearing about how developers come to a decision on certain features.

Only if you have time! :)

@Small: I'm actually rewriting a game I played like 8 years ago, but adding things I think will make the game more fun. I hope thats OK?
It is a fun game to program because I have to do a lot of problem solving.

Definitely ok! A lot of game concepts (not even game jams) are built off of pre-existing games or copied directly. Depends on each person's ability/experience.

I do like that you are experimenting. Adding new things to a game can make things exponentially more complicated, so carry on!

Hahaha, thanks Poku!

Uh, matrix math is hard. Maybe I should study Algebra some more to put it into PERSPECTIVE!

The shear weight of it... I suspect you can transform it into something awesome!  :)

Really interested to see where you end up!

Are you a fellow programmer?

I love the idea that algebra is useful later in life. Anytime I use some skill I picked up in school (where I thought, "this will never have any real world application for me" I always get happy for some reason haha)

What is the gameplay like so far?
