Really fun to play, but maaaan is it hard
Very enjoyable. I just wish we could take care of the plant a little longer.
Hi! This game is a cool little game with some unique concept and I made a video on youtube in INDONESIAN! Check it out! TERIMA KASIH!
Simple game, but loved the execution of the concept. I added it to my list (at number 6) for some of the games I played recently. That's not a rank, just the order I edited them in. Good luck with any future projects. I always love games with a message!
Is there a way to keep the plant alive?
Interesting experince. I wish it lasted longer thou...
I can't download it to play :(
are you from windows?
it was a nic gamer i injoyed
whats hapening to the water?
No way watering a plant should be this process-intensive.
Made a video of your game! It's actually awesome! Check my review if you want!
I can't download ;-;
I can't download help
Did a review of this on my channel. Check it out if you want :)
played the game but am i missing anything???????
No point to it. The plant can't stay alive longer than 5 days. Am I doing something wrong or is this just ohw long the game is?
Each game lasts a week. Which means a playthrough is fairly short. It's a very specific experience, responding to a big event in our team's lives. We are thankful you played even if it did not resonate with you
It wont download :(
Nevermind, I had popups disabled
Water Me is an interesting game and that I think has a lot of potential.
The main premise of the game is that you're stuck inside during a massive rainstorm/flood and you have to keep a plant alive. Spoiler alert: I think no matter what you do, the plant is destined to die, which I think is the point of the game.
One cool thing is that the more you engage with the plant in terms of talking to it and feeding it, the more it grows.
Inevitably though, the plant dies at the end, speaking to the futility of life and how no matter what we do, sometimes we cannot change everything in our life, which is a cool concept to explore in a video game.
There isn't much depth to the game and you can literally finish it in less than 5 minutes, but it's still an enjoyable experience nonetheless and it runs really well with little to no bugs.
I made a Let's Play of Water Me so I hope you check it out and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
I probably missed the point of the game, but it entertained me for a bit. Good game, wish I could have saved my poor plant Ernest :(
So I need to ask.... Is everyone just missing something, and it IS possible to keep the plant alive? Or is this a message about the futility of life?
it's a really specific experience. The game was created for an art show responding to a historic flood that decimated our city in 2015. we are thankful you played it, even if it didn't resonate completely.
I see. I'm a little sad I couldn't get through the game. If it makes you feel better, I did play through multiple times in effort to make the plany survive. I'm sorry to hear this was based off a real life event, I hope your city is recovering well.
I played a little bit of this on my channel, is there anything here im missing?
I can't get the "water_me_ver1_win.zip" version to download. Did the button break?
some users have had issues with pop up blockers preventing the downloads.
No other games on this site have refused to download, and I don't get any notification saying something was blocked. :(
Just in case, though, I turned off my adblock and tried again, but it still won't download. :/
So for some reason, Dropbox wouldn't even let me sign in, let alone open the download. :/
I did, however, discover the itch.io app, and was able to successfully install and play. Thank you for trying to help, though. It's a very nice game.
Interesting game. It's cool you incorperated real life events and people.
You're game look really cool and nice :) !
Really interesting game! The rain I think was a little too loud but overall super cool game with tons of atmosphere!:D Had a few good laughs as well
P.s. I named my plant harry and he died swiftly
Oh gosh, this game was so well done. It's amazing how effective it is at showing someone with an outside perspective what it must have been like during those floods. Stunning work, absolutely stunning.
I did a wee playthrough, and also popped links to the Waterlines page and this game in the description too, I think more people need to play this for themselves!
we're really glad you liked it. it was creatively satisfying to morph our experiences into this game. everyone on the team had first hand experience with the flood or the cleanup afterwards. thanks for your video :)
I can't download it
edit: Safari didn't work for me but I used Firefox and it worked
Download the Itch.io app and your browser problems are solved :)
we have gotten reports of popup blockers preventing the download of the .zip file D: glad Firefox worked!
like @Afro mentioned the itch.io desktop app is pretty amazing.
I am a terrible plant parent :(
omg you are cute. totally gonna be a big youtube star hahaha
I can't make my plant live!
Also, I never noticed a time when the plant name came in (In the game at least)
The game makes so much more sense now that I've read about it on the Waterlines website! I didn't know what it was connected to when I was recording it. A bunch of Bobs died instead. :(
long live bob! we are glad you perused the Waterlines page :D we hope the featured status on itch.io helps to bring more attention to the larger project.
this i fake'
fake? can you explain how?
as noted in the description, it's part of a larger art project called Waterlines that responds to the historic 1000 year flood that happened in South Carolina in October 2015. here's the link if you'd like some more context! http://waterlines.indiegrits.com
