Your cat basil is sick! Collect ingredients from the forest to brew the cure.
This was my submission to the 2023 Love2D game jam.
The web version of the game takes a long time to parse the world map. If
you're having persistent issues try out the builds for Windows or Linux, or
the love file included with this project
Goal: Brew the elixir of life to save your cat basil. You
will need to brew several potions before hand to get past the hurdles.
- Move with WSAD
- Pickup rocks and cut logs with Space
- Interact with the UI to see recipes and brew potions
Note: You will need to brew the Essence Of Strength to lift
rocks, the Cause Of Death to pass through fallen logs and, the Mixture of
Levitation to cross fords.
Brewing a Potion:
To brew a potion you first have to collect all the requisite ingredients.
You can see what ingredients are needed by clicking on the potion you want
to brew on the left. Your stock of ingredients is visible on the right . If
you have all the ingredients in stock all you have to do is click the brew
button. The abilities granted by the potions take effect immediately.
To see the potion or ingredient names just hover your mouse over the icon.
For example if I want to brew the Essence of Strength, the potion required
to lift small rocks, I would first need to collect a carrot, hemp and nut.
Once these are collected I can click the brown potion bottle on the left to
pop open the Essence of Strength mixer page and brew it. Once it's brewed I
can double back and pick up that rock I saw by the house.
Note: Only the Essence of Strength, Cause of Death, Mixture
of Levitation, and Elixir of Life potions have an effect in game.
