i love snow man

by dock - Game Jam Entry

This turned out to be much more difficult and time consuming than I had expected, and I didn't even think I'd have a playable jam build ready. The game is quite simple but it manages to touch upon the core gameplay mechanic I was keen to employ. Also I was anxious to make an animated 3D character for this Ludum Dare, so in that respects I'm delighted with the result.

This game is completable, and takes about 5 minutes to get through.

I wandered around for a while. The map kept changing while I wasn't looking, after I found all the dead ends. Maybe I was supposed to be lost in a drift? It seemed more like a bug, although I'm sure it was intentioned.

Eventually one of the hills I ran up made me fall off the edge of the world into the abyss. Was it a bug this time? Who can tell?

Gorgeous though. And good controls, even though I couldn't look up.

I love the subtle DOF effect on the snow. Good work on the character also.

I love snowman! So adorable. Beautiful art direction as always. I had a nice "aha!" moment when I "got" the core mechanic.

Nice effect on the distant snow. I enjoyed how it flouted the expectation that the world would be consistent.
