You played it? How is it?
I just wanna know a lil 'bout this game, I mean it looks like a great indie game with lots of mystery feel to it from just looking at the screenshots.

It's sort of a sidescrolling platformer with puzzles, weird as that sounds. Instead of direct control over the seed itself however, you control the elements that move it. (wind blows it in the direction you point, water will lift and transport it, lightning makes it jump, etc.) Also note that several elements have secondary uses such as creating bubbles, tornados, fire, etc. I don't want to give a lot away, just know it's nowhere near as simplistic as it sounds.

The stages are set up in that you can move the camera left or right(depending on where the dirt mounds are) of the initial starting area so most puzzles are usually quite larger than what you can see in a screenshot. I think thinking of it as a puzzle/platformer helps describe it easier.

Just one last thing, the game doesn't show achievement or controller support but it has both, (xbox 360 controller anyway) if your kb/mouse isn't portable or you prefer a controller and with big screen mode and what have you.

There are a few bugs, I've personally only encountered the graphic tearing one, but other than that I enjoy it, especially for 7 bucks.

I've only just started playing it and am quite enjoying it. Controls are a breeze, quite literally.

Glad to hear that someone had something good to say about the game. I'm adding it to wish list for concideration.

Or you could just Youtube it and watch player videos and initial reviews of the game since a lot of people might not post their opinions on STEAM forums but FaceBook, Twitter, or YT.

I'd like to know if they enhanced it since XBLA release back in 2011.

I've played some of it on PC and it's recently released on PSN/XBLA (I tried it on PSN). I find the controls easier on PC, and there's quite a few reviews out that you can probably find easily enough.

Gorgeous game though. I'd recommend it to puzzle fans.

Woah, sorry for a mistake. I started with Eko Software's website[www.ekosystem.com], where release date is set to 2011, but it actually was released on June 14, 2013.

I just started the game, but so far I really like it
Looks gorgeous, music is beautiful, puzzle are great so far.

Only negative thing I can say is that 2560x1440 is not supported (max. 1920x1200) :(

Well you are obligated to show off. It's the rule.
