The ruins are like your second home.
You're always here, wandering around.
You stumble on life, in need of help.

Read the short post mortem over here.
I do intend to finish the game soon, add polish,
and make the level expose the mechanics further.

  - Requires a modern browser (webgl2 + webassembly)
  - You might have to click to get input on itch.

  - WASD/Arrows - move around
  - W/Up/Space/X/Left Mouse -  jump (you can double jump)
  - Q/Right Mouse - drop plant
  - R - reset to start point in current level
  - Shift R - reset game

Game Notes:
  - Tiles from
  - There is no sound at the moment
  - If you have the plant or the plant is somewhere safe,
     and you fall off the world, R will respawn you.
  - If you lose the plant off the world, it's unrecoverable,
     and you have to start over atm (sorry).

Change notes since original build:
- Fixed plant sticking around on retrying
- Fixed some minor issues and crashes on restarting
- Improved performance of collision even more
- Fixed input getting lost (emscripten issue)
- Improved performance of collision
- Fixed input maps, arrows keys and other keys now work
- Removed unfocused background sleep

I saved the plant! This was great, well done :)


This is awesome!  I really like the central idea of transporting a delicate plant!

I got legitly sad when I failed XD Nicely done, very pretty and fun!

thanks! 💜


Nicely done. I liked your pixel art style and use of color and negative space. I enjoy explorational platformers like this. I didn't hear any sound, not sure if I was supposed to. Great theme application. Good job.
