It is a wonderful character ^ ^
It was a warm heart as a whole, I enjoyed chillin.
However, for such a mountain road of nature, is not the traffic of car too much? :)

I kept breaking the game D:

Other than that this game was adorable and I loved the idea of this whole game! I will try to play it again.

Oh my god this is so cute I'm gonna die T_T

This was an amazing experience from start to finish ^^ I thought there would be horror elements to it, but I was pleasantly surprised to not find any (pretty much because I do not like horror >.>).

I LOVE the rolling mechanic, but...and this might just be an unfamiliarity with hedgehog behavior...do they actually use leaves like that?

In any case, I covered the game on my channel. I hope it helps get this discovered more!

Ce jeu est dans la sélection des titres présentés par Game Side Story. Enjoy ! :)

This game was so freaking adorable! I did a small gameplay video on it and I'll admit half my commentary is just squealing, but it was so cute and fun! I'll leave a link to my video below and I'd really apreciate if you found the time to check it out! Such and adorable gameeee! 

Are there any instructions on how to play this?

From watching part of the walkthrough it seems to presume you have a gamepad, but makes no mention of it on this page. And there are no options in the game for remapping the keyboard or even what the controls are.

I love minimalist games, but please give me a leg up! :)


Hey Chris,

Sorry for the inconvenience, you can play the game with a gamepad or with your keyboard but there are no remapping options.

Here are the controls :

RollRight JoystickLeft/Right Arrows
MoveLeft JoystickW/A/S/D
MenuStart ButtonEscape
Screenshot*Select ButtonF1

* screenshots are saved to the following path "SpikeUnderTheLeaves_Data\StreamingAssets\Screenshots"

Hope you will enjoy the game ! :)

Also, what is the "shake butt" keyboard control? It seems like the little critter is doing it constantly and I cannot get any leaves to stick.

I am came across Spike  Under the Leaves last night and did a video and I have to say that I am very impressed with the mini game. Great graphics, great little story and very well produced.

Tahnk you and enjoy

Yeah, I thought it was superb and loved every minute of the game. I think it has potential for growth to be honest but that's entirely up to you guys.
