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
It's not downloading for me darn :(
I want to play this game but it won't let me download it for some reason :< Looks really interesting though!
Do you think you could make a easy, medium and hard mode?
LIVE DAMN YOU LIVE!!!
thank you for your video 😌 we loved your plant backtory
I loved this game, though I am not sure if anyone can beat it! Off screenh I tried 15 times using different strategies, but hey maybe I didn't find the right one :( BUT I loved making this video and put a lot of work in it and I hope all of you enjoy it too!
we are reLEAFed that you enjoyed the game. sorry you can't click other objects! long live Todd
A very interesting little game with very interesting concept :D
Really cool concept, really difficult too I couldn't even do it,
Is there a way to keep it alive? Either way this was an interesting game!
My laptop can't run this game, but I watched some videos of it and wOWWAAA THIS IS NOICE!! It's just so cool I can't even explain! Nice job!
definitely could use some graphics optimizations, especially with the water effects. if we find the time for version 1.5 making it smoother is goal #1.
how to download And instal
Click the download link. It should open a new tab and download the zip. If this does not happen, your pop-up blocker may have prevented it. After downloading, unzip the file. In the folder is an executable!
This is harder than it looks but I gave it a good go, you really need to think on how to do this game.
thanks for your vid 🤘loved how much thought you put into playing it. We are curious, how did it feel to lose agency during the storm later in the week
i like the concept!
Can yoou please make a video where you make a machine for linux cause i am interested in starting making games too and i want to start knowing some extra things
Awsome game, i r8 5 stars, cecilnick i applaud you :)
Could you guys fix the download link for windows? I've tried to download the game a few times now and it won't work.
The download link is fine, chrome just blocks the download pop up for some reason. To download the game, click the "popup blocked" icon that will appear next to the bookmark tab icon after clicking download
Ah okay, darn chrome! Thank you, sorry for the trouble. ^_^
well that is really strange. I'm glad y'all resolved this while I was at work!
Hi! Could you also please provide a Linux build - would love to play it :)
I don't have a Linux machine, so I'm not certain it will work 100%. If you're interested I can definitely build one later tonight.
Same here, although this looks too performance-intensive for my machine, I'd still like a Linux build :)
Beautiful, shame the plant never survives though :(
too bad its impoossible to keep the plant alive until the storm is over
lag tho good gaME
downloading it :D cant wait to play (im playing this blind which means that I have never seen the game!)
Killed my plant, Jerry. No regrets. This game has some great atmosphere and an pretty great story line too. The voice acting was perfect and the effects were even more brilliant. Thank you for making this game :D
thank you! The radio clips are actually all taken directly from South Carolina public radio news stories right before and during last year's historic flooding
Wow! You definitely captured the atmosphere with that, for sure. The change in the plant really indicated how the environment was changing, along with the character and their grip on happiness.
It's a great experience - immersive, atmospheric and contemplative. However, no matter what I do, I can't get the plant to surive past the final day of the storm. Any tips? Also, why does the house seem to have British electrical wall sockets!?!
Aw man, you caught us with the sockets. We didn't notice that until release. Version 2 fix haha
So, you're going to have difficulty keeping that darn plant alive ... it might not even be possible ...
As a response to the October 2015 historic flooding in South Carolina, this game explores the loss of agency via a medium usually defined through player agency. When I was sitting in my apartment, watching my neighbors houses underwater on the news, I wanted to run out and help everyone. But I was stuck ... no matter how much I wanted to get to where people were hurting, all the roads around me were sunk.
I was wondering if that might be the case, but I was determined to keep Albert alive!
I done a write up of Water Me over at Gaming Respawn: http://gamingrespawn.com/indie-game-spotlight/15287/indie-freebies-blameless-others/
I cant get the download like to work? Halp!!!
Oh no! can you describe the issue more?
I can't get it to work either. When I click on the download button it opens the thank you for downloading message, but for some reason it doesn't start the download. I tried reloading the page and clicking on the button several times, but it just won't download.
Strange! You can try one of these direct links:
Let me know if neither of these works.
I was having the same problem but the links worked. Thank you!!
I like how it feels like im inside and comfy in this game my plant died pretty quickly because i did not water it.
