Winter Cow Farm

by juaxix - Jam Entry

Click the cows to generate more milk, the snowman will sell milk for gnome coins, that will create more cows :D

Drag & drop the cows to avoid the cows from getting frozen, if the ice take down your farm you will have to start over again.

Dance, dance, around the snowman.
Sing, sing all over the winter, until the sun arrives.
Pay the tribute to the snow queen, milk is what she wants, the mountains speak, with snowballs falling all over the hill.

Nice game. I feel that I'd be a bad farmer ;)

Nice game, but it seems a little bugged. The cows sometimes get stuck and don't produce any more milk.

My cows kept going places where I couldn't see them. :( The music was fun and the cow's facial expressions were cute.

Great music choice! Pulling the cows in is a little bit stiff--I don't know if it was some kind of collision detection or the cows just *wanted* to get blasted off into the icy reaches offscreen, but I'd click on them sometimes with no response.

Cute! Great animations and music. It's kind of unclear what's going on, though. Sure, I can click the cows and get more cows...But how do I avoid having them freeze? The "instructions" say "drag and drop the cows", but that doesn't seem to do anything (it's also very hard to click and drag them correctly). And certainly once the cows are frozen you can't click and drag them. Also, how do I stop ice from taking over the screen?

So, it's good, it just needs a bit of work. ;)

Funny. Probably one of the funniest I've played in this jam.

Intersting concept. I think this game could be extended to a bit more complex hm... farmer-survivle game with more dangerous things and some more abilities to extend farm. Also i like music and graphics style.

That was a little weird, but oddly fun. I had no idea why the snowman was hopping around everywhere, but it was pretty funny I guess. It took two or three tries to move the cows and they usually froze anyway. Still, I liked the entry - oddly charming. Keep it up! :)

Very nice paced game, loved the cows and the fact that the snowman decided to go for a bit of a roll about the level.
It was pretty unclear on what needed to be done but I had alot of fun playing this.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
