Many thanks to @castpixel who designed the rainmaker sprite and animations. I learn some good tricks about chibi design with this game.
+100% cuteness with new character design by @castpixel
You can now walk through clouds on the ground if they are small enough.
0.5 Added a short intro + title screen and new 12x12 hero animation
0.4 The game now have an ending.
Achieve 3 of the following :
- Get 3x stars
- Get 3x lightnings
- Get 20x flowers
- Finish 2x conditions within 99 seconds
0.3 Finally found a reason for the raindrops. You can now water flowers on the ground. The flowers are always visible so you can track which part of the ground need water. The visual result is quite weird. But I think i'm ok with it :)
0.2 version with wall jump, background, spark monsters and uncollectable lightning bonus
I finally found an idea for the theme. Here's my current progress
I found out that you can neutralize lightning by breaking the cloud it's orbiting around, and wasted a bunch of time doing that. It bothers me how much you're always running out of ground to stand on, perhaps clouds should slowly re-form??
Super cool! I like that you have many small elements of gameplay that start forming that good vibe of playing a game.
Just throwing a small idea of what I thought would be the behavior: A neutralized lightning bold could be a bonus (if taken) that makes thunderstorms -- more rain -- for a limited amount of time, or something like that.
Though it has the appearance of a benign, bright, carefree summer day its hazards and unforgiving harshness shows effectively how not all things are as they seem on the surface, to not judge a book by its cover, as many like to say. To be successful in this world, so apparently benign, one must destroy lightning - to put others down in order that one should find prestige themselves - or collect stars - like a pigheaded, greedy capitalist unable to see the direction in which his own noise is pointing - or destroy flowers - the fruit of hard work of those who supported you in the time of need, those who disintegrated under your exploitative feet. To teach a lesson, that not all is as sunny as it seems.
I also included it in an article of my favorites! http://fireside.gamejolt.com/post/jam-favorites-pico-8-jam-1-putidgf8
