Great cute game. I like the idea.
I did feel sorry for the reapers though. :(


Nice range of platformer and action challenge in this one, sylvie! The score was nicely done as well. My compliments to the composer. :)

Loving this so far! Super cute and really interesting mechanics. The music is lovely too.

Though the game crashes when I touch/try to talk to the reapers. Here's the error code thing:

action number 1
of Draw Event
for object oNPCReaper:

string_width argument 1 incorrect type (unknown) expecting a String (YYGS)

called from - gml_Object_oNPCReaper_Draw_0 (line 18)

Thanks so much for pointing

Thanks so much for pointing this out! It was introduced by fixing another bug and I didn't notice. Can you redownload and see if you can progress now?

Oh, this is so nice! There's

Oh, this is so nice! There's a lot of interesting details going on simultaneously here, and I like how they merge together and correlate. I think one of my favourite touches were the monochrome flowers at the bottom floor of the tower that give +1 health instead of +3... The reapers are only able to create a broken, drained version of life.

I am sure I didn't see everything, since at the end I had 85 out of (I presume) 100 health, but I feel like I saw enough to get a good glimpse of the picture. The scale of the world and how much there is to discover here is bite sized, but the brisk pace of the game matches it perfectly.
