A kind and cosy game about listening to others.

1st Place in GM48

and the first place in innovation

(a 48-hour game jam). 

*This is an updated version*

People say talking to plants helps them grow. Hazel knows better. Most plants can't understand human speech. Luckily, Hazel is a brilliant techno witch who has made a gadget that will help her communicate to plants! By listening to plants, Hazel can record what plants are saying to her. This way, she can replay that dialogue to other plants and have a real conversation with a plant in their own language!

Can Hazel overcome the limitations of speaking in pre-recorded messages and help her plant friends out?


  • Move - WASD
  • Talk/Interact - "E" or "Spacebar"
  • Open up your recorder - "R"
  • Save dialogue - "1", "2", "3", "4" (You have four save slots for dialogue. Use the number keys to save a dialogue to the corresponding save slot. Alternatively, you can also click the 1-4 buttons on the recorder with your mouse)
  • Choose Dialogue option - WASD
  • Lower/Increase volume while in game - K / L


Hazel's plant child, Rose, is moving out soon. Hazel wants to find the perfect gift for Rose but cannot understand plant language. How can Hazel learn to communicate with plants in order to find the perfect gift?

Help Hazel by collecting dialogue with her tape recorder by speaking to plants and picking which dialogue you want to save.

The dialogue you save becomes the options that are available to you the next time you talk to a plant!

Done with the game's story? There's also a mysterious "Dye Log Tree" where Hazel lives. The more you learn about what plants say, the more the tree grows! What's the highest percentage you can get?

Rumour Board

  • I hear a certain someone wants to 'exchange poems' with the schoolteacher...
  • I wonder what the plants want for Halloween? Perhaps we can have a 'gift exchange'.

minibunnies responds:

Thank you, we appreciate the feedback!

A lot of love and effort here, hope you expand the game, I could play this for hours straight

minibunnies responds:

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the game. Right now we're working on a bigger game, but afterwards we are talking about working on Hazel again. There was a lot of story that we had initially planned that we would like to explore.


minibunnies responds:

Really glad to hear you enjoyed the concept! Thanks for playing. :)

Such a cute game :)) cottage core

minibunnies responds:

Lot's of people partaking in cottage core while saying under lock down. That's where Tulip got the idea to make a sourdough starter. Thank for playing, glad you enjoyed it. :)

minibunnies responds:

Thanks for playing and sorry for hurting your brain. :D
