🎮 Roses Are Red

🌹 Play as Mother Nature & fill the world with flowers in this relaxing experience.

  • Make flowers grow wherever you walk
  • Enjoy a serene experience, suited for everyone
  • Listen to the original soundtrack, featuring soprano vocals
  • Complete five areas, each with their own flower type
  • Discover the five hidden jasmine flowers

This is my submission for Game Off 2022, the theme being cliché.

👀 Behind The Scenes

🎨 I went for a wholesome & relaxing experience carried by the art style & music. It’s an artgame with gameplay that is very minimalistic by design, so non-gamers might actually like it more than experienced gamers.

🖋️ See the links below for three devlogs in which I explain the behind the scenes of creating this game: the art design, the sound design, and finally a postmortem with what I learned from creating the game.

💬 Also thanks a lot for all the comments I got on the game jam page. Feedback like this is very important for personal improvement. Thanks as well for the amazing 3th place in the category Audio Design, you can read all about how I created the music in the devlog.
