LEGUMI is a game about eating beans and finding true happiness.  

One day, while going about  your business as a tiny, helpless, bean devouring legumi, suddeny you are consumed by ennui. Nothing makes you happy anymore. Everything seems pointless. You ask around for what you should do, and discover a legend about the lost treasure of “True Happiness” 

 In the days of old, young legumi like yourself would embark on a long, aimless pilgrimage, searching for and visiting wisdom houses hidden throughout the land. These houses would make the path forward clear.  But it has been generations since the last such pilgrimage took place… a million awful things have affected the land, and now the path is fraught with monsters, ruins, and other dangers. And the legmui are, as previously mentioned, helpless. But that doesn’t mean True Happiness is entirely out of reach…

  •  Legumi have sixty seconds of energy once they leave the comfort of their colony.
  •  Everything appears as a distant glisten until they're quite close. 
  •  Some of those things are monsters, and if you're close enough to tell it's a monster it will be immediately upon you. 
  •  Every time you fail, everything shuffles around and you’ll have to explore the area all over again. 

 A clever legumi, therefore, knows how to harvest and manage their beans. With the power of beans, anything is possible: 

  •  Each one gives you ten more glorious seconds of energy
  •  They all contain two explosive little "pips" that can be thrown in clumps to make big noise to scare monsters away. 
  •  When you pick beans, they'll grow back and be ready to harvest again in one minute. 

 You can also make your journey easier by tracking down treasure and purchasing upgrades for yourself.

  • Face dangerous monsters 
  •  Uncover unusual treasures 
  •  Explore strange worlds 
  •  Purchase neat upgrades 
  •  Random-ish levels 
  •  Original Soundtrack 
  •  Simple but tough  

Do whatever you can to get past whatever sits between you and True Happiness

nice seeing you at edmonton expo!

Very cute, hope you keep developing this.

Ah, this made my day! Thank you so much!

The game is currently actually completed! The web version is just a demo. I do plan on giving it some polish and features down the road, though.

Your pro/con list was very uplifting. I had a lot of worry that it was too complex and only made sense to me, so seeing "simple gameplay" really let me relax. Also, since the management loop was the catalyst for the whole thing, it was very nice to hear you thought it was "great" :)

The cons were really helpful too.  I actually had it during development that he would blink during his last ten seconds, but I took it out because I liked the surprise of him just kinda running out of juice and falling on his face. There's no penalty for it, unless you're running from something, or out of beans. Ooh, maybe I'll make it so that he only blinks if you're almost out of time AND beans. Very interesting, haha.

Another issue you stumbled on but didn't even mention is that if the mouse can be used as an action button, then OBVIOUSLY you should be able to click the buttons. (Duh! Sorry!) I added the mouse button kindof last minute, in my game it really is just a spacebar on the end of a string. It shouldn't be too hard to fix that.

Thank you again very much for the attention and feedback! is there a place I can send you a PM?

Thanks! I tried to make it even HALF as fun as eating them in real life. Thanks for the feedback! The blob man is one of three, and finding them all opens the path forward ;)
