Now that's what you call character-driven. I loved all the little details that brought these fellows to life! One can really feel the camaraderie floating around the Club, and the personal stories are unravelled bit by bit as you watch the racers mumble and react to each other's performance. Just enough is revealed in dialogue and told by expressive animations to make one really engrossed and imagining. I felt positively accepted by each of the characters, and willing to drift off into the sunset with them all: the motherly warmth of Rowan Berry, the hillbilly friendliness of Honey Ginger, the steadfast 'tude of Sea Buckthorn, the chillside assurance of Elder Flower and my beautiful, huggable friend, Dandelion.

I was quite enamoured by small things like accidental flocks of birds flying high in the sky, the cars honking to get you out of their way, and characters revealing their opinions on each other and Rose, whose bouncy scarf and shadow on the ground is but all we see.

The way dialogues work has actually taught me a few things and answered some design questions I've been pondering about with my own hypothetical games, so thank you for that!

And of course, the soundscape is up the right alley with Yaffle's trademark dreamy sensibility that brings the picture to wholesomeness.

What a heartfelt release. Mornings don't get any better than this.

Would get addicted to pears and rig races again 10/10 lol

Decided to give this a look for my Twitch stream, since I do a lot of demos and jam games and the like. And I'm glad I did, it's so endearing for such a small experience!

Thank you for playing our game! We are very glad you enjoyed it!

Sorry for all the trouble with the full screen mode and the action icons glitch!

music, pastel colours and haze contribute to a wonderful chill atmosphere. great small details of the birbs, leaves and wind

got told off for doing dumb player character things twice, 10/10. idk if i should tell dandelion that 'i was seeing if i could get run over and die'

the simple character expressions and poses are v effective at giving a sense of life and i love the range of lowpoly cars- the european looking coupe, the boxy kei van/mini thing and the estate car, what were they based on?


tbh i could give positive feedback for a long while

its cute

oh wow thank you for such detailed and kind feedback Jammy!! this means a lot to us and makes us happy. <3

cars:
Sea Buckthorn has inherited a "Zhiguli" Lada-2101/VAZ-2101 (also nicknamed "Kopeyka") from their cool racer granny; Honey Ginger's car is a very rough lowpolization of Toyota Tercel Wagon; Dandelion's sister for some reason has a Mazda Etude 1987; and Elder Flower is trying to drift on a Suzuki Lapin Chocolat X.  ah, and Rowan Berry's tv van is supposed to look like Ford Econoline 1976! 60% of these are purely based on googling though, so there might be discrepancy.

P.S. Dandelion woluld get super worried from hearing that, but they are also a very caring friend that puts your safety and feelings in priority, especially after seeing you try to get run over by a club pal. so it's safe to tell them, they are totally gonna help you process those strange feelings.

That was a pretty chill experience. 

i am just worried that Dandelion hit the car multiple times into the side of the pear crate, the pears are safe, but i hope Dandelion don't need to give explanations to their sister about pears in the engine or something.

thank you!
we also hope Dandelion will be able to get the pears out somehow, it would be a shame if they were suspended from lending the car after only participating once.
