How to Raise a Dragon

DoraHow to Raise a DragonA world where candy is a precious commodity to be mined and sold. A prison where the bars aren't always so obvious. A beast that slumbers beneath the ocean, dreaming of a brighter world. And now? Gregory Weir wants you to choose your own path in How to Raise a Dragon, an interactive story with more than one outcome. A lot more.

This game is about you. Well, actually, it's about a newly hatched dragon, but the narrative that unfolds as you progress does a surprisingly good job about drawing you into the role. You'll begin the game breaking out of your egg, all alone in the middle of the forest. Well, except for all these intriguing plants and bugs to eat. But it won't stay that idyllic for long. Use the [arrow] keys to move right and left around the screen, and [X] to eat certain things. While early on tapping [Z] or [Y] will only make you jump, as you progress you'll be able to tap it twice to leap even higher, or multiple times to fly. And of course, once you get old enough, you can use [C] to breathe fire. Or maybe something... else?

The story unfolds over four chapters, each with different things to see and do. While you can barrel through the game in under five minutes if you really try, you'll be missing a lot. The second chapter is where your decisions start to have real importance, so take your time, explore, and consider your options. Do you want vengeance? Do you want to forgive? Or do you just want to be left alone?

Once you complete the story, the game allows you to return to any chapter you like and play from there on. It's a nice touch that lets you really explore everything the story has to offer, without necessarily replaying the entire thing. Although, why you wouldn't want to, we can't imagine. Unless you were a robot with a heart of circuitry and gears for imagination. You're not a robot, are you?

How to Raise a DragonAnalysis: While it doesn't have quite the emotional impact of The Majesty of Colors, How to Raise a Dragon is still pretty impressive. Being able to reach an end more ambivalent than either laying waste to everything you see or being the sort of dewy-eyed protector fourteen-year-old girls doodle in their notebooks was refreshing. I just wish it were longer; I felt like the bulk of the outcome was riding solely on that second chapter, and it would have been nice to have more than one or two decisions determine my destiny.

But what the story lacks in length it makes up for in charm. The pages from the fictional book the story mimics appear before and after major decisions, and do a great job of gently guiding you to your objectives without making you feel like the game is yelling, "HEY STUPID. WHY DONTCHA FLAP ON OVER HERE?" A more direct approach, or telling you exactly which items did what, would have both made the player feel hectored and taken away the great sense of wonder the game has.

While this story unfortunately isn't dragon-bite-sized, it remains a solidly enjoyable treat. It doesn't break any molds the way Gregory Weir's previous games have, but it does tell one heck of a story. And with so many potential outcomes, why not take a different path next time and see what the future holds?

Update: Gregory Weir has made an update that incporates several fixes, a new behaviour, and the ability to use the [Y] key as an alternative jump key.

Whoo, this is fun.,

I had a glitch in my game when I was playing through the 3rd chapter. I was wondering along, came what looks like a castle, and after what looked like a house like icon loaded-the game went black. only the dragon was on screen. I wondered for a bit and saw some random sprites lying around. Don't know why it did that.

I had the same problem, JIGuest. It might have something to do with me being an adult dragon without a breath power, but that's just a guess.

I got the same bug. Filling up the green house icon is supposed to activate the next chapter, but it seems to work only with certain dragon combinations.

I liked this game, but it could've used some extra work:

There are several possibilities for the third chapter depending on where your dragon chooses to make its home and how nice/mean it is towards the town populace, but the differences pretty much end with the third chapter. The nature of the dragon itself could've influenced the ending more than it did; currently, all it does is say "the hero partnered up with the dragon/killed the dragon/was killed by the dragon". It would've been nice if the game acknowledged the difference between killing a tyrannical dragon and killing a benevolent one, but instead it just gives the same generic "the hero went down in history forever and ever" ending for each one.

I also ran across the adulthood glitch. For me, the glitch only seemed to happen when I left wiped out the army but left everything else alone. Then when finishing up the home selection thing (house icon) everything went black instead of bookish.

That happened to me too.
Apparently, all you can do after that is press ESC to go back to the main menu. The behavior's called "rampaging". But there's no explanation for it or anything though, which i thought was strange.

I can't seem to find or get at the last bit for the fire breath

Did you check in the sewer?

I did

and I can see the torch, but I can't eat it. If that is the last piece, then I can't get it for some reason.

Not sure if this constitutes as a spoiler, but at the end, has anyone

managed to slay the dragon? I keep getting tail poked to death.

Finally got it, it takes quite a bit of jumping.

The black background thing happened to me a couple of times, I think it's just a glitch - nothing to do with a behaviour.

On a different note, has anyone managed to get the last Title? I've tried all the different things I can think off, but I can't work it out (I assume there are five, like the behaviours.)

I loved the idea at first, but two things ruined it for me:

There are really only 3 endings, you either kill the dragon, befriend the dragon with presents, or die.

No matter what weird mix of food you eat as a hatchling to give yourself interesting colors, you only get one breath weapon and its based on what you ate in adolescence.

There are 6 behaviors and 4 titles. You can see the icons that you haven't gotten as a bit faded in the hero window. I'm a bit disappointed that the Behavior only affects the environment and not the text resulted in the end, but I guess it would take a lot of effort.

For how to get all the behaviors and titles:

Behavior:
1)Fertile: Green Power. Only breath over the peasant fields.
2)Fiery: Red Power. Burn everything
3)Necromatic: Blue Power. Revive everything
4)Rampaging: Eat and stomp on things (?)
5)Reclusive: Don't do anything and just get a home.
6)Wild: Green Power. Breath on everything

Titles:
Just a combination of being nice and mean and getting a home at either the 1st or 2nd location.

I can't get the last behavior, I have :

Fiery, Necromantic, Rampaging, Reclusive, Wild. There's one more to the left of Fiery.

And I think there are only 4 Titles; there are only 4 boxes in that line.

the last behavior, wild, occurs when

you have the plant breath and run through the town covering houses with vines

Xixen,

There are four titles, two locations (castle vs. cave) with two alignments each (good vs. evil). Before getting each of the behaviours and titles, you can see a faded square to indicate which ones you have left. Since there are no more once you have five behaviours and four titles, I would assume that that's it.

Personally, I'm surprised that there's no Benevolent behaviour, say if you heal all of the injured/sick people without raising the dead. The only behaviour you can get with and only with the healing breath is Necromantic, which is kind of counter-intuitive.

Ah well. Onward, my yellow zombie thralls!

Muttroid

If you heal only the injured people and then make your home at the castle, you get Reclusive Gaurdian

There are six behaviors that I have got, Fertile, firey, reclusive, rampaging, necromatic, and wild.

Ruka,

Yeah, but Reclusive essentially means you didn't interact with the humans enough. You can get reclusive with any (or no) power; hence, I said "with and ONLY with the healing breath"

How do you get rampaging?

and how do you get wild?

I've got a bug fix for the black screen when getting the Rampaging behavior. I'm working on getting it uploaded to Armor Games ASAP.

There's another ending --

you can be the servant of a dragon.

Give gold to a tyrant.

WALKTHROUGH

Breath abilities:

To get these, you must be in the adolescent stage.

To get plant growth breath:

Go up the stairs after breaking out of the cage. To the left is your first plant.

After that, jump down off of the ledge and eat the flower poking out of what looks like a fountain.

Go right until you see another plant.

Go right until you see a set of stairs and go up one level. There is a plant near there.

To escape, go back down the stairs and go all the way to the right. Use your new found power on the tree, climb it, and jump the wall.

To get healing breath:

After breaking out, go up the stairs and to the right. Eat blue cup.

Go down the stairs to the right one level and go as far to the left as you can. Eat the blue potion.

Go all the way to the ground floor and go through the hole to the right. There are some mushrooms to the left a ways.

Exit the basement and climb one floor on the stairs to the right. To the right is a jug.

To escape, go to the bottom floor, jump the hole, and climb to the top floor. Heal the wizard all the way to the left.

To get fire breath:

After breaking out, go to the bottom floor, go to the left a bit and eat the fireplace.

Go to the left a ways until you see a second set of stairs. Climb to the floor with the hanging trinkets, go left a bit and eat the candle.

Go back down to the ground and jump through the hole. Directly to the left should be a torch.

After climbing back out of the basement, climb the stairs to the right to the top floor. There should be a lantern to the right.

To escape, go to the ground floor again and set fire to the hay. Walk out the revealed door.

Behaviors:

To get these, you must be in the adult stage.

To get fertile:

Must have plant growth ability.

Scattered throughout the stage, there are farms with failing crops. Use plant growth ability on them before settling down in a home, but try not to use it on too much else. Try not to stomp anybody.

To get fiery:

Must have fire breath ability.

Run through the whole stage spamming fire breath ability before settling in a home.

To get necromantic:

Must have healing breath ability.

Run through the whole stage spamming healing breath ability before settling in a home. Try not to stomp anybody.

To get rampaging:

Kill every human without using your ability too much before settling in a home..

(Note: some people may get a bug where the background goes black after settling in a home. Don't worry, you still got it.)

To get reclusive:

Don't do anything, just settle down in a home.

To get wild:

Must have plant growth ability.

Run through the whole stage spamming plant growth ability before settling in a home.

Titles:

To get Guardian:

Settle on the castle without killing anybody.

To get Tyrant:

Kill everybody and settle on the castle.

To get Watcher:

Settle on the mountain without killing anybody.

To get Scourge:

Dangit, fastposted.

Isn't there a hero ending for bribing the dragon and another for befriending him?

Good concept, but it's lacking. It's such a simple easy game - why not make it more challenging and involved based on your choices? I can see this progressing in a direction reminiscent of a much more basic Spore. I guess that's just not his style *remembering Majesty of Colors*

There is a third hero ending: the subservient / slave.

The only thing that really bugged me was having to walk alllllll that way to get to the dragon, with no (as far as I know) interaction with the sprites. Also it was hit and miss as to whether the background would match what the adult dragon had done previously. Only the gallows (whether they're rebuilt or not) seemed kind of intentional.

My favorite was adolescence. Great castle!

There is actually a fourth ending: stale mate.
it's says that the hero is killed in the dragon's death throes, the picture is just of an empty castle/mountain.

There is actually a fourth ending

Stalemate, I do not know the exact details but it is probably acheived when the dragon is at very very low health and kills you.
The picture is of an empty castle/mountain

the blackout glitch happened to me when i made the dragon kill the humans and tried to make its home be the mountain

It's a cool concept and a great start! I would play a second version of this.

I think it's cool how people have managed to come up with lots of other ways things could have gone in this adventure. Here's another one:

I was surprised that you couldn't take the bow and kill the zombies as the hero for the necromantic dragon. Definitely the hero needed some attribute endings to round things out a little.

now this is annoying. where is the third fire piece?

Great game! It was very fun to try out all of the possibilities. Burning the wizard and everything in the towers was especially rewarding.

However, I agree with those above - the conclusion to this game could be improved:

If the information at the end of the 3rd section were to hint at the optimum methods for the Hero to deal with the Dragon (ie: Fiery Tyrants cannot be befriended), the 4th section would be much easier, and eliminate trial and error and pointless running back-and-forth between the objects and the Dragon.

Also, the end screen with the Hero and/or Dragon silhouettes would be improved if a summary of the player's choices (ie: Plant Breath, Rampaging Scourge, Killed by Hero) were added.

And of course, the whole Healing system needs to be improved. Not only should a healing, non-necromantic behaviour be included (eg: Healer), but if you do create zombies then they should go around eating other citizens of this unfortunate town. Then, you could include another set of Hero Titles:

  • Saviour - Kills all zombies (using the bow and arrows) and the Dragon.

  • Accomplice - Kills all of the zombies, but not the Dragon, effectively helping the Dragon take over.

  • Hypocritically Sadistic - Kill the Dragon but not the zombies, leaving the town to be over-run by the undead.

  • Zombie - Get killed by a zombie.

That's just my two-sense worth.

I do love these pixellated mini-games.

There's a bug. If you settle down without a power, the game doesn't take you anywhere, and you're stuck in a dark area.

There's a 4th ending:

Service - You befriend a bad dragon

Has anybody else had a problem with the preloader for this game, it gets about 80% through, and then stops, and no matter how long i leave it, it wont load up. Shame, cause this looks like it would be a really good game if i could get to it

hey um i'm not sure if i'm doing something wrong, but i can't seem to use my breath? my leaf symbol is already filled up but when i go to the tree where it says 'c', nothing happens when i press c.

The author says there is a glitch with rampaging one.
I like the story book parts of this game, especially that the 'photo' was taken from your current behavior (so sometimes you just see some tail or feet). :)

I'm having the same problem as ladeeda. No matter which breath power I acquire, I can't use it, even in the appropriate spot.

I don't like this game.

You had me at Gregory Weir.

Loading it up now...

I agree there should be a

Healer behavior.

I went through very carefully healing all the injured and not reviving any zombies and just got reclusive.

I agree this is a neat fun game, but it would be amazing if it was expanded a little

Figured out stalemate.

Shoot the dragon about 14 times.
Let the dragon bite/flame/whatever you till you keel over, then hit C for a few parting shots.

All is lost. Sadness :(

Shocking discovery for the hero -

There are FOUR endings - Befriend the dragon, kill the dragon, kill the hero, or:
Stalemate, where the hero and the dragon both dies.

Dragons have long been a favorite mythical beastie of mine - I have one tattooed on my arm - so I'm enjoying this simple yet compelling game.

If you're in the mood to be a mean dragon..

get fire breath and you can burn both the tree and the sick wizard. That'll teach him not to go around imprisoning baby dragons and using their droppings for who knows what!

I am not sure if this has been said yet but I found another hero ending.

Its when both the hero and the dragon die. This is called the Stalemate.

Awesome game! One of the few multi-path games that I can figure out all the options. LOL! Thanks for posting it, Jay!

I also can't use a breath weapon, regardless of what I eat, or how much of it I eat. Playing on Firefox, Windows XP if that helps.

Actually, there are four hero endings. Befriend, kill, get killed, and

honor it with a gift. If you give the dragon money when it sits on the outskirts and kills people, it's a different ending.

FINALLY. Just got the Stalemate ending after several attempts :P

Good game overall, though the last part (playing as the human) could certainly have used a bit more variety.

9 out 10 stars. I agree it could have been longer.

To get stalemate:

The dragon seems to have 15 health. (Though I haven't done extensive testing for different titles). Stand on the raised platform, hit it 14 times, and let it bite you twice. Just before a third and final bite, shoot the last arrow.

I noticed the blackout glitch happening whenever

I didn't get a breath power, and did stuff in adult stage. I don't think it liked when I didn't have a breath power.

A question about the hero endings.

In regards to the one labeled stalemate, where you and the dragon apparently kill each other, can anyone who achieved this say just how they did it? I've been trying, and either I kill him, or he kills me. I can't time it correct, I guess?

Man, why do I have to ask questions right after they get answered? =P

for goodness' sake, as has been said, there are FIVE hero endings.

Friend, servant, kill, killed, stalemate.

.

Nice bones, but no meat to this game.

This game is amazing. Enough said.

I befriended the dragon that wasn't evil.

:D Happy ending!

How the heck do you eat the torch?

bob-

To eat the torch,

Press x while jumping.

I cannot get the

stalemate ending, even when I tried what was suggested... :(

can anyone post a pic of the "black screen random sprites" glitch plz?

There is another dragon ending

Guardian - The people are your pets

Should have said how to get it

kill only the guards

There've been common questions about this game:
How do I eat the torch?
you press X to eat right before jumping
How to get stalemate (easily)?
just keep shooting after you die

You can get the guardian by

just getting on the castle without doing anything.

I liked it a lot, but the incredibly slow walking pace really got to me after a while, especially in the final chapter.

After you beat the game, and you are going back to play the adult dragon level, you get to choose which breath power you want. I've gotten the fire, heal, and grow powers, but there is the outline of one more that I cannot seem to find. It looks kind of like a circle with an X on it. Does anyone know what it is and/or how to get it?

Stonkey,

that means no breath. To get it,

leave the castle without eating anything

Oh! Of course. Thanks Canimia.

just so everyone knows there are in fact seven behaviors. fertial, fiery, healer, necromantic, rampaging reclusive wild.

Yeah. You get healer (the 7th ending) WHICH NO ONE SAID ANYTHING ABOUT! by HEALING THE WOUNDED (and maybe 1 or 2 zombies).

Just as Aerineth said:

"I agree there should be a

(Healer behavior.)

I went through very carefully healing all the injured and not reviving any zombies and just got reclusive.

I agree this is a neat fun game, but it would be amazing if it was expanded a little."

I have beaten the game already! and YES getting fertile is hard, it's the last one I got.

I slayed the dragon and i unlocked every thing ps the easyest way to slay the dragon is

to stand right by its feet and shoot it

at the beggining to hatch the egg and break the cage u need to

use the arrow keys

chocolate

there are actually

7

behaviors which are in order

fertile,fiery,healer,necromatic,rampaging,reclusive, and wild

just ask if you want to know how to get each.

how do get the water breath

I've jumped and jumped, but I still can't get the torch. Help?

There is a 7th behavior that people always leave out, the healer. To get this one only heal the injured people, not the deer or the dead soilders. Then settle on the castle.

What are all the chapter or book-like things for this? I think I've got them all, I have

Hatchlings, Coloration, Capturing a Dragon, Adolescence, Breath Powers, Healing Breath, Plant Growth Breath, Fire Breath, Escape, Forgiveness, Adulthood, Human Interaction, Reclusive Guardian, Healer Guardian, Fertile Guardian, Wild Guardian, Fiery Tyrant, Necromantic Tyrant, Wild Tyrant, Rampaging Tyrant, Fiery Scourge, Necromantic Scourge, Wild Scourge, Rampaging Scourge, Necromantic Watcher, Reclusive Watcher, Healer Watcher, Wild Watcher, Fertile Watcher, The Hero, Slaying the Dragon, Fall of the Hero, Friendship, Service, and Stalemate.

Yes, I actually went through the game many times and wrote down the title of each book transition I got. Dx Cause I want to know if once you get everything you can click on the book on the menu and see them all. Or, of course, could someone just tell me whether or not you can? ^^;;

Where's the last fire piece?

Mac - The fire pieces are located:

1. Downstairs from your cage in the oven. 2. Down in the cellar on the torch, near the barrels. 3. The candle two floors beneath the sick wizard. 4. Lamp on top floor of the rightmost tower.

There are subtitles in this game

Reclusive Watcher - kill one human and stay at the cliff
Reclusive Guardian - kill one human and stay at the castle
Wild Guardian - your breath powers must be plant then stay at the castle(I kinda use power on the houses)
Wild Scourge - you your breath powers must be plant then stay at the cliff(use plant powers on all)
Necromantic watcher - heal everyone then stay at the cliff
Healer Guardian - Heal everyone and stay at the castle
Fiery Scourge - burn all and stay at the cliff
Fiery Tyrant - burn all in your way and stay at the castle
Rampaging tyrant - step on everything or and stay at the castle
Rampaging scourge - step on everything or and stay at the cliff

Hero stuff

Unlock things
slaying the dragon = kill any dragon
Friendship =give gold to guardian or give flower to wild
Stalemate = both die(hero and dragon)
Fallen hero = die (hero)
Service = give gold to tyrant

there's another thing you can do with fire as an adolescent -- kill the wizard!!

all 4 endings

kill dragon
kill hero
befriend dragon(if dragon is good)
service dragon( if dragon is bad)

[Edit: Spoiler tags added. Please use them. :) -Jay]

Stalemate or whatever is achieved when you

kill yourself and the dragon at the same time

Guess what! When picking a home

have heal breath, then kill everyone, then heal them from the dead!!

Zombies!!

all breath powers

Fire: first bulding the fireplace in the kitchen, second bulding the candle, basement the torch,(to eat 2x jump then X) and third bulding the lamp

Plant:
eat all plants

Healing: the jar next to the candle, the jar below the lamp, mushrooms next room to torch, orb thing next to barrel of treasure

how do you get the first behavior?

befriending bad dragons is fun

eevee.love can you tell me how to get

healer behavior

JIGuest:
To get the healer behavior you need to

Use the healing breath on the citizens, and animals but not on the people at war. You can't make zombies or it is ruined.

Can the dragon eat the people? Also, where do you find the

magic mushrooms?

HEY GUYS...
how about colors of the dragon?
on the page where the hero icon was clicked, there's a label above NEW ELDER.
and below it are colors red, green and blue.. i recognized that there re some other slots. could those slots be for other colors?
haha. just want to have a complete file.. =)

Yay! I got everything!... Now what?

I found tons of glitches occuring when you give a dragon gold, pick it back up, then drop it again. Once, I gave a watcher a flower and picked it up then dropped it, but he poked it away. Then he roared and I froze.
And you can get healer by healing all wounded but no dead. There's some wounded people in the army, too.

Great game! It was very fun to try out all of the possibilities. Burning the wizard and everything in the towers was especially rewarding.

"Hypocritically Sadistic"
xD Love it!

YAY! I got them all!
Thank you whoever said to

Shoot the dragon 14 times, then shoot one last arrow right before it bites you for the 3rd time! :)

-Krizpy

To get the torch in the well, you have to jump and press X at the same time as you are jumping... if you get the jyst of what i am saying it will make sense... take a few trys and you will get the last peice :)hope this helped a tonne!

THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!! =D I did all of the endings, got all of the powers, and got all the the titles/behaviors, too! Stalemate was SUPER hard though! It took a really long time to get everything, though. Good luck, everyone!

How to use breath? I eated 4 plants, pressed C and nothing happened

I got the fifth title. I manged to get killed and kill the at the same time!!! Here's how I did it:

Fight a fiery tyrant. Keep on the arrows but make sure the hero gets hit twice and also make sure the dragon attacks with it's tail before it dies. Once the dragon's head makes the hero jump down from the building touch the dragon's tail. The hero will and you'll get the last title.

[Edit: Spoiler added -Walzar]

C for breathe does now work for me ;/

Have you ever blown up the wizard with fire breath? IT'S FUN!!

I beat the whole game with all titles and behaviors. Stalemate is hard to get, but it is possible.

Shoot the dragon about 14 times.
Let the dragon bite/flame/whatever you till you keel over, then hit C for a few parting shots.

i got this from Aerineth, so dont thank me.

i found this game reminding......because i thought of a game like this one, in my game, you play as the dragon and watch and help raise it from an adolesence to an adult, when it is of mid-age, it finds a rider in the forest, when the she-dragon saves him from soldiers, they form a bond and he keeps her a secret from everyone and everything. when he and she are adults, they get found, and they chase them, trying to slay the last dragon,.... and they capture them....and she is slain as he is forst to watch, then, 3 years later his son finds a dragon egg and brings home a dragon....it is the dragon that was thought to be slain....and they live happily ever aft....what's this? the egg hatch....now they lived happily ever after....for now. oh and well good game

This game is pretty easy to folllow and I love making my dragons weird colors

hey! i cant find the last water any help?

hasnt ANYONE noticed that the dead people are beheaded?!

I have beaten this game TWICE.

In Adolescence, If you fill up one symbol (leaf, heal, or fire)And you eat onother object you breath power symbol will appear. (You have eaten all 4 fire objects and you go and eat the mushrooms and tree. Your fire symbol will appear.

And here is an idea for a sequel:
-3D
-kill the zombies
-Hero Stage-raise stats like in rpg's,buy items, RPG style dragon fight, wild monster,heath and mana, spells, etc.

Where on EARTH is the cliff? Please Help!!!

Person who cannot get the torch from near the sewer you have to jump and bite it might take a few tries though

Ah something was nagging me about this game. It's remarkably similar to Choice of the Dragon. For those who find this a little lacking, just search for it right here on JIG.

And if somehow this link works, here it is:

http://jayisgames.com/archives/2010/02/choice_of_the_dragon.php

when you play as human, what should you pick up to befriend the dragon??

Jiminy, it depends. If green power-flower.
If any other (I think) -gold.

i got the stale mate choosing a healer tyrant and shooting it while jumping (you know, pressing z and c at the same time)then letting it bite and tail poke every volley of arrows. then when i die keep shooting arrows.

Really fun game though! I was looking for a virtual dragon game(i hate dragon cave) and i stumbled across this.

Where is the last fire thing?

It's fun to find all the endings, but when you finish its a bit boring...hope theyll add more

ps

i still cant kill the dragon and get killed, but to kill the dragon you stand as close to it as possible and shoot 15 times

There actually is a healer title. You just heal everyone, but the dead soldiers in the battlefield. Then go to any home. But only revive the wounded and if you revive a dead man on accident, just kill him.

wolfgirl13, what is the name of the game? i really need something to play

@onoxnon: I think she was talking about a game idea she had thought of herself.

YES! I FINALLY GOT THE STALEMATE!

to get stalemate, shoot the dragon 14 times, let it bite you twice. then, just before it bites you a third and final time, shoot the last arrow. (you may have to try multiple times to get it right)

I got a black dragon by fasting as a baby.

how do you get the dragon to hatch?!?!?!?!?

@Xixen to get the last title;

Stomp on, or eat most if not all people, and make your home on the cliff.

on the hatching phase i keep trying to get this one blue thing i see in the ground but I've not been able to

Yea, I've seen that same blue food thing that's right before you drop below the log on first chapter. It's like in the ground and you can see it on the bottom right corner of the screen when walking up hill, but you cant get to it.
