A small boy is born from the wind, appearing in front of a house. He doesn't know his purpose, but knows that this house is important.

how do u beat the sheildspire


ConnorUllmann responds:

Check out the walkthrough in the description.


Good but i cant open my inventory


ConnorUllmann responds:

If you don't have the fire yet, you can't.


I'm not even done with the game but it's got me hooked entirely still. Only one problem I have is with the controls being hell a sticky quite often. I would move in whatever direction I moved for days, it's really making the lava area annoyingly difficult. Other than that, great game overall.

Try "dimming the lights" so that the external ads turn off. It might speed up the page and fix the stickiness. If that doesn't work, try just downloading it from here and playing: http://uploads.ungrounded.net/598000/598977_Seedling.swf


Read your Kotaku review: "feeling of openness and possibility" was what you wanted and what I felt. Basically a subversion of the Legend of Zelda hero trope, right? Compared to anything on NG, this had more interesting use of gameplay to impart meaning. And thus, using video games for what they're supposed to be used for. And hey, a parody of LoZ:OOT's Deku Tree via the Useless Big Tree of the Oracle? Fun!

Game imparts meaning better than average games on NG, but against an ideal standard, you can do better than a rehash of the themes of so many post-modern vidjagames like MGS2 & Spec Ops: The Line. This is the central message I got the game: haphazardly collecting tokens from chests results in good things, and not thinking about your actions results in bad things--I don't know what in your life you're drawing that lesson from, but it ain't good if life is really that uncomplicated for you. The obvious gameplay & design problems are obvious, but they don't matter as much as that major thematic problem.

I do admire what you were able to do in spite of all that. I can't code for shit. I'm eager to see what you do when you work on those themes.

morality is killing 7 instead of 8?

ConnorUllmann responds:

Morality is killing 7 before being told that killing them was wrong... and then not killing the last one, because you learned your lesson. At least, that's what I was hoping to impart.
