Cute idea, but didn't really give me much reason to keep playing.

Maybe I'm stupid! I don't know! But the tutorial is not very good and the transition to 'okay now go play the game' is incredibly unforgiving! Which sucks, because I did want to enjoy this.

I played it quite a bit a few years ago and still have fond memories of it, but I'll say, I had more fun watching others play than playing it myself, and at some point it kinda just became me borderline doing eugenics to survive the harsher climates

I like this peculiar little game and its peculiar little creatures... although only in short bursts because it does get a little boring and sometimes frustrating

Enjoyed this more in middle school

One of my childhood favorites, I fucking love this game. Love the designs and concept.

i hate this stupid game

scratches that world itch
