Brief Play Description: 

A physics based game where the player takes the role of a mischievous gust of wind who lures bugs and snails to their demise by swaying a carnivorous plant seductively like a normal flower. Please note that this is still in beta and contains several bugs (of the programming kind)

Instructions

Hold down the left mouse button to create a wind force and use it to push the Flower around slowly. Once the Flower begins swaing, bugs will be lulled by its movement and begin spawning. Nudge the Flower to eat the bugs. Once a bug is eaten, the rest will see this and flee. Eat them all before they escape. Bugs will continue to spawn as long as you continue swaying.

Update1: Important! Through some feedback, we find that some people are unable to play and suspect this might be due to us developing this on a 64bit Windows. Thus, if you are using a 32bit windows and having trouble running this, we sincerely apologize!

Update2: Please also note we're aware there is an issue with crashing and have not been able to find the cause so far. As such, we hope you treat this as a proof of concept for the time being. We have plans to rebuild this into a proper game so stay tuned:)

Final Update: Crashing should be fixed and there shouldn't be anymore problems running on a 32 or 64 bit platform. Cheers!

re:exe

Hi there, thanks for noticing this.

flower.exe was the working title we used throughout the gamejam because we didn't have a name at the time. It should have been changed but we must have somehow missed this one.

Will check on the downloadable and have it rectified if the rules allow us to do this. Otherwise, please run the game through flower.exe whe you see it.

Thanks!

.exe

Is it me, or isn't there an sway.exe in the prompted directory?
