Earthtongue Receives a Big Update, Steam Release This Month Joe Parlock April 7, 2015 Archives Vivarium ‘space gardening’ game Earthtongue has received a big content update, endearingly named The Hungry Fungus. The Hungry Fungus makes some major changes to the game, with the introduction of carnivorous fungus that eat some of the various bugs that may appear in the game, and new bugs such as spiders that can eat flying creatures, and also the addition of hibernating cicadas. Changes have also been made to make the game more approachable, such as bug fixing and more visual representation of systems that were previously invisible such as fungal spore distribution. Additionally, Hornby announced that after successfully being greenlit, the game will be launching on Steam “within the month.” It is already available on Itch.io for $5 (or a piece of art as part of a pay-by-art system). I’m glad there’s been mushroom for improvement with Earthtongue, as Euan found the core game enjoyable but “not for everyone”. Eric Hornby was also a pretty fun-gi when he was a guest on the Indie Haven Podcast. Disclosure: I am friends with the developer, however this news was sent to the general Indie Haven tips email address.
