I have been racking my brain trying to find this game I used last year.
You played a character whose parachute was destroyed and you landed on an island of some sort. Your goal was to train these dog creatures to help you dig and find things such as copper and mushrooms in the ground. You also could collect things like cinnamon off trees by teaching the "dog" (they came out of eggs) to climb. You had little missions to complete for the town residents to help you fix your parachute.
Eventually, south of the screen you go to a new island, more of a tropical one, which had flaxseed, banana plants and cacao.
If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated!
