January 2019 Update: After a busy 2018, I finally got the time, over the month of December, to update the gameplay loop and add more character to the world. The Tree of Life required quite a lot of polish after the game jam, it was created during, in May 2018. 

As of the latest build, the world is much bigger, and procedurally generated, outside of the starting- and endgame areas. The gameplay loop is more balanced, making each venture into the forest/island more tense, as time goes on, as the resources around Mom start to deplete, the longer the game goes on. The player can now, also, teleport back to Mom at will.

I still intend to post a follow-up update, as there are still some animations and audio fx missing. I also need to create a sprite for the enemies in the game, as they are placeholders right now. 

The code for the game, can also be found on GitHub, alongside the Readme, laying out my plan for everything left to do on the Tree of Life.

Install instructions

Should just require unpacking the archive somewhere and running the exe.

I have not tested the Linux build, so please let me know if you encounter any issues with it.
