oh i hate this (the emotions i feel, not the game) man, what a beautiful game! i love that you have to wait for rain and ration your water! i was so worried the first time i ran out of water haha. the twist was incredible, the ending broke my heart, and i am officially making a head canon where me and my supervisor run off together and live a happy life in a little cottage with a nice garden! :,)
I want to have my own garden now.
Turnfollow never disappoints.
The ending is self-explanatory
amazing, the ending hurt my heart though.
It does not launch on Linux.

but that library is installed:

well, that was a experience
Nice game!! I made a video about the Game,
I just loved the graphics and the concept of the game! It is literally my favorite game! I can't get enough of playing it! Kisses from Brazil! 🇧🇷 💖
Lovely! yet heartbreaking
ugh, my heart, it hurts
This game is so good, my goodnes
absolutely astounding, loved every bit :]
Amazing game i loved it it was calming and peaceful but very sad kinda teared up tho would very much recommend i just wish they could have a garden together and live peacefully. );
This game completely surprised me in the best way possible, the interaction was minimal to an extent that it felt very special and the ending had me feeling very emotional. There was such a subtle progression and lots of little details which made the environment feel so fleshed out. Plus I enjoy growing plants! This is such a brilliant little game which I'd definitely recommend others play it at least once x
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.
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!
