Cute and fun game!
Of Pith and Pumpkins
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Grow prize-winning pumpkins in a graveyard in this non-violent feel-good game!
As the pumpkin caretaker, your job is to wrangle stubborn glowing ghost orbs and summon them to your pumpkins to make them grow.
Watch out for evil spirits that are also attracted by your summons - you'll need to draw them away from your pumpkins. Tip: They wander more slowly on their own.
There are only 4 levels so far. More levels will come if there is interest.
|Move||WASD or Arrow Keys|
|Summon nearby orbs (to yourself)||Hold Spacebar|
Tip 1: Evil orbs wander around more slowly on their own. Pull them to the far corners of the graveyard to get them out of the way.
Tip 2: You can push smaller lightweight pumpkins around the graveyard.
Tip 3: The closer you are to an orb, the stronger the attraction when summoning. Gently tap the spacebar to draw them closer.
Tip 4: If bad orbs are too close to the good ones, just wait a few seconds without summoning and the good ones will disperse and spread out quickly. Strategic patience is the key.
