A kind and cosy game about listening to others.

1st Place in GM48

and the first place in innovation

(a 48-hour game jam). 

*This is an updated version*

People say talking to plants helps them grow. Hazel knows better. Most plants can't understand human speech. Luckily, Hazel is a brilliant techno witch who has made a gadget that will help her communicate to plants! By listening to plants, Hazel can record what plants are saying to her. This way, she can replay that dialogue to other plants and have a real conversation with a plant in their own language!

Can Hazel overcome the limitations of speaking in pre-recorded messages and help her plant friends out?

Controls

  • Move - WASD
  • Talk/Interact - "E" or "Spacebar"
  • Open up your recorder - "R"
  • Save dialogue - "1", "2", "3", "4" (You have four save slots for dialogue. Use the number keys to save a dialogue to the corresponding save slot.)
  • Choose Dialogue option - WASD
  • Lower/Increase volume while in game- K / L

Gameplay

Hazel's plant child, Rose, is moving out soon. Hazel wants to find the perfect gift for Rose but cannot understand plant language. How can Hazel learn to communicate with plants in order to find the perfect gift?

Help Hazel by collecting dialogue with her tape recorder by speaking to plants and picking which dialogue you want to save.

The dialogue you save becomes the options that are available to you the next time you talk to a plant!

Done with the game's story? There's also a mysterious "Dye Log Tree" where Hazel lives. The more you learn about what plants say, the more the tree grows! What's the highest percentage you can get?

Rumour board

  • I hear a certain someone wants to 'exchange poems' with the schoolteacher...
  • I wonder what the plants want for Halloween? Perhaps we can have a 'gift exchange'.

Sorry, but I can't quite figure out what I'm supposed to say to Croton about Rose's gift...

Hey, thanks for giving the game a shot! Try finding an answer to Croton’s question if you saw what Rose did at the party last night and see where that conversation takes you. If you focus on the questions Croton asks, you will get the answer you seek. Hope that helps!

This is SO cute and clever!!! I really loved finding the Dye Log Tree!! (I didn't read that far before playing so I didn't know it existed before I found it at like 49%! haha) I'm so excited to play again and see it full-sized! 

Thank you so much for your kind comment! We’re really glad that you enjoyed the game. Can’t wait for you to see the tree at it’s full size! :D

I can't see any of the dialogue?

Hello,

Depending on the resolution of your monitor, the text at bottom of the screen may not be fitting. You might have to scroll down to fit the text on the screen.

how do I move rose, I'm kinda new here-

Thanks for playing. Really happy that you liked it. We are currently working on a project that we are passionate about but revisiting and expanding this idea is definitely something we might look into in the future. Thanks for the feedback and have a great weekend :D:D
