Entrusted with your grandmother's orphanegg, will you take care of all the orphaned eggs and help them grow up and unlock their enormous potential?

You can play the entire game by mouse. 

How to play the game [SPOILER]

We think figuring it out yourself is part of the game, but in case you get stuck, please look below.

Keeping the egg happy

You'll have to do a few different things:

  • Move the lamp cap around to change the temperature of the egg
  • Turn the lamp off if the lamp is furthest away and the egg is still too hot
  • Change the base
  • Add to the moisture.
  • Turn the radio on or off
  • Change the radio station between classical music, jazz, and metal.

Notifications:

 : Three spikes, the egg base doesn't feel nice, switch to egg or pillow

: Bad music, either the station is wrong or the egg doesn't want music at all

: Too hot, the lamp is either too close to the egg or should be turned off

: Too cold, a snowflake. The lamp is too far away (and should be on)
: Too wet, ocean wave, the humidity level is too high, wait a bit for it to lower

: DRY, the humidity level is too low, you need to spray some more water in the room

: Not enough music, the egg likes music and the radio is currently turned off

: Annoyed, you'll see this when the egg tumbles out of its base, it means that at least two conditions (heat, humidity, music, base) are not right for the lil' egg.

: Happy, the egg is moderately happy but not super happy, this means that you can change up the base or the music channel to one it likes better. Some eggs like jazz, tolerate metal, and hate classical music, for example. The egg will already grow with this.

: Super happy, all conditions are perfect for the egg and it's growing at increased rate.

GREAT GAME, thanks for sharing. I played this about to know that unicorn egg needs lot of water mostly; I had need to spray water non-stop. I mostly love to care the book worm among the others.


* the unicorn is the hardest level to take care (water is the life to this one):

*I FINISHED this game,(PS: I wish I had a parrot egg with what ever species and color of feathers):

Hey E,  

Thanks for playing! I think our controls weren't as intuitive as we hoped, and the first egg is very hard to hatch because my final build was rejected by itch...

You'll have to do a few different things:

  • Move the lamp cap around to change the temperature of the egg
  • Turn the lamp off if the lamp is furthest away and the egg is still too hot
  • Change the base
  • Add to the moisture.
  • Turn the radio on or off
  • Change the radio station between classical music, jazz, and metal.

It will roll off when two things don't met its standards, but there's only a 30% chance it does... Though I do admit sometimes it seems to happen a lot in a row which is annoying.

The first egg needs the lamp to be the furthest away, the nest base, no music and humidity around ~50% to hatch.... When it's almost done, it will hint that it's too hot which means you'll need to turn off the lamp. It should hatch within a minute with these tips :) 

thanks

Enjoy the game! 😁

Hey aehl,  

Thanks so much for playing! That's a  good idea, I'll add them to the description after adding them here.

The notifications are as follows (they are a bit small here):

 : Three spikes, the egg base doesn't feel nice, switch to egg or pillow

: Bad music, either the station is wrong or the egg doesn't want music at all

: Too hot, the lamp is either too close to the egg or should be turned off

: Too cold, a snowflake. The lamp is too far away (and should be on)
: Too wet, ocean wave, the humidity level is too high, wait a bit for it to lower

: DRY, the humidity level is too low, you need to spray some more water in the room

: Not enough music, the egg likes music and the radio is currently turned off

: Annoyed, you'll see this when the egg tumbles out of its base, it means that at least two conditions (heat, humidity, music, base) are not right for the lil' egg.

: Happy, the egg is moderately happy but not super happy, this means that you can change up the base or the music channel to one it likes better. Some eggs like jazz, tolerate metal, and hate classical music, for example. The egg will already grow with this.

: Superhappy, all conditions are perfect for the egg and it's growing at increased rate.
