-How to obtain the 4th node: https://gyazo.com/23de3b7ef52b5a36d5375c058dc6ff3a

-To unlock the secret ending, you will need a total of 16 nodes. To achieve that, craft the first 15 and head north from your base. At one point, you will see a lonely plant, head WEST from there and you will find the last and secret cluster.  Backtrack to craft your new and last node, and head back north again. Once you reach the final zone, don't activate the capsule and head EAST, you will find there the secret ending.

Great game! Really enjoyed streaming this game and loved the story behind it! Couple suggestions I would add are you should add like puzzles or like keys around the map to be able to get to the real daughter. Otherwise Great game!

amazing art! And story also some really cool mechanics 

Umm I don't really understand the endings, can you explain them?

Hey mate, thanks for playing my game!


**SPOILERS AHEAD**

So for the normal ending, you actually dont rescue your daughter, but an alien clone of her. In the last picture, you can see her eyes suspiciously glowing, and he also notices he hasn't aged in 8 years...!

The true ending, you find her lifeless fossilized. So in reality you could have never saved her.

I know it's a bit confusing, due to lack of time and actual lack of writing skills, I decided to go in a vague way.

Ah okay, thank you.

Excellent game!

Really loved it, but the problem is that my weak laptop is really weak :P

I really liked your game. The art was good, the music was good, and the idea and gameplay was good. The only problem is that my weak computer becomes super laggy but I  guess thats my problem.

Everything about this game is really good but there is a gamebreaking bug in it. If you break a node rock and die before you can collect the node, it disappears which makes it impossible to get to the end because you need 15 nodes.

That is some BAD NEWS, thanks so much for the feedback!!

No problem

This is really good. Like I can barely believe this was made in a week good. Great sound effects and music, a incredibly unique mechanic, and the art is just amazing.  I went ahead and rated this game for the jam and would be delighted if you would return the favor.
