A fun narrative platformer, where the player controls a helicopter seed that is searching for a place to grow roots, and encounters truths and lies about humanity.

The game features traditional art (hand drawn with ink brushes and aquarelles on cold press paper) which was scanned and cropped, color corrected using GIMP

I love it! I experienced two technical issues I thought I should mentioned. The "crashing sounds" of trees and bombs could not be heard. Also, the seed never lands, but the story in the discussion says it does.

Best of luck with the game!

Thank you for the kind words and the feedback! The game was initially made in 48 hours for Global Game Jam 2023, but we are planning on making updates that will address the issues you mentioned, along with other various improvements and additions.
