So, yeah, Sprout's a good idea for a beautiful game, but it doesn't naturally allow for a fun game. So I had to rethink some of the features. Now plants won't grow automatically, the player has to goad them out. A dash feature is in the works. A couple of other new features. The player will also be able to upgrade these features by collecting hidden items, though it won't technically be necessary.
The whole nature of change is unsettling, but I'm confident this is for the best.
