Hello, what is your policy regarding youtube videos being made playing your games?


You're great at coming up with clever game mechanics and varied puzzles to use them

A little too easy, but very lovely!

But it will be a waste if you change those existing maps, but you could make something like "choose experience" and you can select these maps (easy) or new (intermediate) maybe? That's only a sugesstion. Anyway, I really enjoyed!

You could add harder levels to the end of the game too


Really cool mechanic! The art is really good too. I just think that showing a 'queue' for the seasons you're going to get next will make this a bit more player friendly.

Finally got around to playing this. :) Nice puzzle game with cool mechanic! Also love the music.

this was a very enjoyable game. Only critique I’d give is I would’ve enjoyed the hedgehog’s movement time to be reduced with the hold of a button or something for the hedgehog to move through the levels in some areas. Otherwise it was super fun

What a lovely game! I'm a galsses-dependent myself and can totally relate to Mr. Hedgehog. Also, I always enjoy your brilliant mechanics!

Thanks! Same goes for you too!


This is a very cute yet fun game!

Gotta respect going with a one button game and pulling it off. I can imagine a full version with a shifting color palette as the seasons change, maybe it could make for a relaxing natural aesthetic type game?

A great little game. I love Sam the Optimistic Hedgehog. Some of the levels require some fast finger work though.
