OK, we're a couple of hours late, but we're done! Total production time, approximately 12 hours.
Click here to download the game. It's called "corn.zip" and the executable is called "corn.exe". This is because the codename for the project was "corn".
Monday I'll try to post more detail about the project, but for now, boy, I'm tired of being here!
How to play
Use the mouse to navigate the garden and interact with the plants.
* Click on a flower to pick up a copy
* Click on a bare patch of ground to plant a held flower
* Right-click on a flower to kill it
The four "stock" flowers present at the beginning of the game cannot be killed.
Flowers placed near enough one another may breed, producing genetically based offspring. Each flower has a number of traits determining how it will breed. Individual flowers have preferred soil types and will reproduce more readily if planted in their preference.
