I played this game a while ago, honestly it was such a lovely experience. I'm a high school student in Australia, so it really helped during lockdown (I'm out of it now) The story of it all, I still think about it to this day, thank you so so so much for creating it

why is the window label "savage garden" though

Not gonna lie, the ending got me all emotional, but I do have to say a decent part of my disappointment was just at the gardening being over.

You've got a real special game here. I might just come back to this every once in a while.

So glad to hear you enjoyed it! Thank you for saying!

Dude I'm so sad. I really shipped the mc and that awkward supervisor. I needed more of the story :O I'm cryingggg

How do I refill the wateringcan? It ran out the third day.

The watering can refills when it rains! Sometimes you have to wait a couple days. There is a spout that fills it up the most by the chair.

Painterly and intimate! But why is the up/down movement so slow compared to turning? It felt constraining, especially in a game where I'm looking down a lot. I like it otherwise!

Cool design
