Hey yall, this is my first 'complete' game Hakurei!

In it, you play as a small turnip spirit helping plants grow in the forest.

When I set out to make this small project I wanted something I could keep within scope, but also something cute and relaxing. I managed to get all the art and assets going and then found myself neeing music. the amazing majeedooo0010 made the chill music you hear in the game, and the sound effects were made by Fettuccini (I've posted their Ko-Fi and Twitter respectively at the bottom of the post).

I suffer from an anxiety disorder so I wanted to create a mindless game that allowed for a distraction before a panic attack. I was hoping to just make something small but the more I worked on it the more I felt I needed to add until it became a 'complete' experience.

In any case, I hope you enjoy my first little game and find it as cute as I did!

great game!
suggestions: make log a background object (most important suggestion: make it so you can walk diagonally up the land increases so you don’t have to jump at every pixel blocking you..)

@Celesmeh very cute game!
A small suggestion to make smoother floating effect using trig e.g. sin()
In the title screen, the big jumpy/floaty turnip sprite's vertical travel is (roughly):
-1px 48%
0px 50%
+1px 2% of the time
You can barely perceive it at +1 for a single frame giving a glitchy/flicker impression.
Your line: spr(154,72,15-1+sin(time()*1.5),3,3,0)
(apart the 15-1 that is literally 14) could be tweaked as:
the +.5 (read as +0.5) puts down an even 'weight' and presence at +1px
You can even balance it differently +.2 or +.8 (check the different result) as you wish.

That was to explain the small correction separately for clarity; also, since you already have a sum in that expression 14+sin( you can simply add the decimal tweak to 14 itself, so:
Always a good practice to save a couple tokens.

I was going to complain about lacking pollen radar but then realized that this is relaxing game so it's not needed.
Nice short game, gathering pollens for flowers is fun.

This is such a cute little game, I love it! Well done on your first PICO-8 cart!

very cute animations, and very relaxing to play! nice job!
and really good music and sfx!

the one thing I would change is to make "up" not pause because it's very easy to push up accidentally when using a real controller/gamepad

i will never tire of the thud after you jump
