DARK SOIL - Darks Souls meets a Garden Game. 

Winner of Ludum Dare 41 (out of 3012 games made in 3 days), Theme was "combine 2 incompatibles game genres"


"Cultivate your garden and earn souls from dangerous plant species" 

Get seeds and plant them on Soil tiles, then use your watering can to grow them and earn souls. Every 5 levels, you unlock a chest in the sanctuary that gives you a more powerful weapon and heal you.
