It's tough farming on an ever-changing mountain - when the mists roll in, everything disappears! Still, the mountainside has rich soil and its hidden trails hold treasure and secrets. Use your skill at farming, crafting, and alchemy to hold back the vanishing mists as long as possible. When they inevitably arrive, retreat to the abandoned village of Oncewas and rebuild it to its former glory. The returning villagers will unlock new upgrades and powers for future farms.

Skill-based Farming
The peculiar crops that grow on Moondrop are particular plants. They must be matched up with their neighbors in order to flower and flourish. Exotic plants will warp across the farm, clone themselves, or tunnel away from your fields. A farmer who can wrangle these weird and wily crops will make a substantial profit. The famously finicky mistberry is difficult to grow, but it may be used to hold off the vanishing mists and keep the farm in place for a few more days.

Explore a Shifting Landscape.
Every hike up the misty mountain offers a new trail to explore. Discover new seeds, perks, and blueprints hidden away along the procedurally-generated trails. Each discovery will unlock new possibilities on the next farm. Solve puzzles to learn the secrets of the mountain.

Rebuild the Village of Oncewas
Like the ocean tides, the vanishing mists cannot be held at bay forever. When they arrive, return to the ruins of a once-thriving village. Use the resources you've collected to rebuild the town from the ground up. The people who move back in, be they blacksmith or fortune teller, will help you on your next farm. Restore Oncewas to its former glory and unlock new powers and playstyles.

Return to the mountain smarter, faster, stronger
Like the winter frost, the vanishing mists eventually recede. Return to the mountainside and begin anew. Use the knowledge you've learned and the seeds that you've earned to build a better farm. With persistence and the support of the villagers of Oncewas, you will one day reach the top of the mountain.

This is super cool! Been enjoying it a lot.


Small thing, I seem to have managed to crash it? Opened this chest here and it just stopped responding. Time won't move, and I can't interact with anything.

Glad that you're enjoying the game, but sad that a bug crashed it for you. I've got a few questions - sorry if they seem really basic, but they'll help me narrow down the problem.

1) Were you playing with a downloaded version? There might be some logs I could look into for greater detail.

2) You're saying the storage screen was unresponsive, correct? You weren't able to move any of the inventory items or press Space to exit the screen?

3) Was this your first time this game in the "shadow cookie" room? (That's what I call the shadowy circle in this room.) Was this your first time on Day 11 in the shadow cookie room? If you were in this room before, did you access the chest?

4) Did you play multiple games of this straight, and the bug happened on a latter (i.e., not the first) playthrough?

5) Did you use any potions earlier on Day 11?

1- This was the browser version, unfortunately.

2- That is correct. I couldn't move items around, or close the storage. It just wasn't responding at all.

3- This was the second time I had been in the room, and the second time that day. I had entered briefly, left, and almost immediately returned. I did not access the chest on the first visit.

4- No, this was my very first playthrough

5- I had used a potion that turned me into a sheep. I was still in sheep form the first time I entered the room, exited, and then reentered once the potion wore off.

Alright, I was able to reproduce the bug! On reloading the room, the chest was being added to to a Dictionary twice -  this caused the freeze on interacting with the chest. The other rooms don't have the same issue.

I'll be able to get a fix up today - just gotta add a little polish to another feature I've been working on. Thanks for the bug reporting, Yirggzmb!

Hey, you're welcome! I'm just glad it was reproduceable.

Delightfully charming and addictive. The leaderboard is a fun challenge :)

I might be biased but this is by far the best farming-based roguelike I have ever played!

I love the game and I am litterally amazed on how talented a solo developer is. Like why lol. Keep up the good work

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you enjoy the work, and I hope that you'll have fun with the new updates I've got planned :)

One thing I found was that there is a collision bug in the top wall

Can you describe the bug a little more? I tried walking through the wall and wasn't able to.

So I am not completly sure how it happened, but I came at the top wall at an angle and was able to clip though it. I will see if I can send a screenshot

(2 edits) (+1)

Ok, so I repeated the glitch but sadly, before I could take a screenshot, it became nightime and I was sent back to my house. I think If you stand 3 blocks back from the wall, there is a chance that you can clip through the wall.  

Thanks for the information. I'm still not able to reproduce the bug. (I believe that it is happening! It's just hard to replicate these things sometime.) You mentioned that you were standing about three blocks south of the top wall - about where were you standing in the east / west direction?

I've gone ahead and changed Unity's Tilemap collider from "outline" mode to "polygon" mode. This'll get pushed out in the next update (today or tomorrow). I think this will solve the issue, but I'd like to reproduce the bug first so I can prove it. I do appreciate the bug report and the help :)

you're hot

Thank you, wife.

lol
