I'm guessing this is heavily inspired by slime rancher.
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Slime Garden is a contemplative game in which you explore a procedural world and meet its joyful inhabitants.
The game is geared toward sharing your discoveries and the only action you can perform is taking a picture which pauses the game, gives you a description of what is on it and gives you the possibility to share it on Twitter or save it locally.

Try the CPU Only version if the terrain is not generated

Hey, tried the linux version. Super laggy! Tried CPU only and the GPU one i assume. Also trees keep teleporting. Wasn't sure if that was intentional? :) Looks awesome from screenshots!
Really relaxing game, love the low res art style.
As the person below said, controls aren't too good, taking a picture could better fit the E button, since it can be really easy to try to jump with it by instinct, and the buttons bound to 1, 2 and 3 could better fit z, x and c since those are easier to reach (I don't know the other keyboard type you're supporting, so I can't really say how it works).
Similarly to the Space button key binding, the escape key, at least for me, is the menu/pause go to button so I pressed it a few times trying to exit the game, so it might be good to bind it else were close to the wasd (or zqsd for the keyboard that type), and maybe add the ability to exit using the escape key, again it might be more of a peeve of mine, but it's a bit annoying to force close a game.
Another thing I'd like to point out is that the function that checks to see what the picture is focused on can be a bit off at times and also is a bit too aggressive on suggesting that trees are in the picture if slimes are not, even looking directly down will give a tree focused title if you are close enough inland.
Last thing is although it is about taking pictures a jump and some ability to interact with the slimes, maybe a pet action that just makes them stay still and smile for a short bit of time.
I did notice a bit of buggy behaviour when you stand on a slime and it jumps with the screen shaking a lot.
The game really cool looking though, and I hope this feedback helps.
The controls are just terrible.. Please don't make a game if you cannot make the controls normal
While it's good to point out bad controls, a game with bad controls is still better than no game at all.
Very, very cute game!
slimes are beautiful!
I very like it! Please, make updates!
The regular version couldnt be launched at all, and the CPU version launched but i kept on moving backwards for some odd reason (this is for mac osx) and the mouse isnt bound t o the window but the concept and some of art i saw was really cool!
This needs some way of moving slimes, like hitting or pushing.
mouse isn't locked to window, so I can't look around all the way.
Hungs up on lubuntu bionic + firejail. Non-CPU version is more stable, the hunging appeared when I steped in the portal or something. With CPU-only version system hungs up after few seconds of playing.
I've downloaded both CPU only and normal windows versions of your game. unfortunately neither change my problem. After both logos appear I'm left with a blank screen and can hear the slimes and music but cannot see anything. What do I do?
I have an idea. Make this VR, and you have to take care of each slime, finding fruit and going around. The more you feed a slime, the bigger it gets. you can also breed slimes, getting a random mix of both slimes traits onto a new slime. You can play with a slime if it likes you, doing things like playing fetch and riding the slimes. Just a suggestion. You can continue the game however you want. Or of course, you could just end it off with a nice and relaxing 8-bit photography simulation game. :)
I really enjoy this game. Got some good pictures that would make good desktop backdrops. Also think it would be cool to give slimes different expressions.
As I always say, there are far too few photography simulation games! All the more I was pleased about your contribution, which also knows how to shine (and slime) with a fantastic look! :) I enjoyed taking a little walk in this special garden and taking some snapshots, so I recommended your game along with two other ones in a compilation article about the PROCJAM. <3 Of course anyone interested can also see a minute of gameplay in the accompanying video. :) Keep it up, you're doing some really nice work here!
Is something wrong with my computer? the game won't launch, just as if it requires a newer opengl version, (i have opengl 2.1,) where it launches for a split second before closing..
Try installing the latest version of OpenGL your computer supports.
I have looked into it, which it seems that this is the only version it supports, which sucks, i bought two games over steam at a point only for them to require 3.x, and i dont have the new computer yet, so... :C
Hi, I'm not sure if I don't understand the gameplay or what, but on Linux the x86_64 build loads, but I have no control, and on the x86 version I have control, but it feels too "random". Is there some place that some settings can be found? I like the looks of the game from the screen shots, but I can't play it because anything I do jumps to a sudden frame change, and this won't work for me (it could be designed that way).
You could try deactivating the grass by pressing Escape, this is maybe what causes those frame changes.
On the OSX version I just seem to be stuck in a pink void where there's a pearly bubble above me and the borderline logo off in the distance. I'm on a 2017 iMac with an R580 running the latest version of macOS, build downloaded just a few minutes ago. Also it complains about being a 32-bit app at startup.
Can you try the new "CPU Only" version ? It simply moves the terrain generation (which looks like being the problem here) from the gpu to the cpu.
Hmm, well, terrain appears, but it changes every frame, and it runs at about 1FPS.
how do I play the game? ive downloaded it but I don't see anyway on how to play it
Please describe your issue better, what's your platform ?
(Windows) You downloaded a .zip file, simply right click it in the folder and click 'extract'. Open the extracted folder and there should be a .exe file.
1.i smell a little of slime rancher maybe?
If you made this in unity a VR version would be aaaaaaaaaaaaaweesome. (please leave the pixelation filter in if you do because pixelated games in VR are so awesome) :D
I recommend that you get rid of the pixelation or add a graphics settings thing, It's really bugging me!
Please develop this game as an adventure!
I STAND OUT THE MOST but why!?!?
Kinda like SLIME RANCHER exept
I tried with both controller and keyboard but I wasn't able to move. Only look around. Looks like a great game from just moving my head around though
MAKE THIS VR IMMEDIATELY SO I CAN PET THEM
I cant play, when i open i just see everything blue D: and some pooping circles
I have added the 64bit build to the Linux archive, tell me if that works for you.
I can run the game now, but movement controls don't work. I tried both a keyboard and a joystick. Do you have a linux machine available to test your builds on? If not, I would advise taking your Linux build down until you do. I would really like to play this game, but unfortunately I can't. :(
Hey! Played a bit of this on my channel, it's real adorable.
i can't see any thing
It is not recognizing my strafing inputs (WASD) in any form. I will try later with the controller and give feedback. Nice aesthetic though.
Which build were you using ?
Oh, I also had a similar problem, I downloaded the Slime Garden Windows version.
And so, I saw slimy silhouettes in the distance, probably they are beautiful :)
