Ludum Dare 31 — December 5th-8th, 2014 — Theme: Entire Game on One Screen

Snowman <3 Kitty

by Kimau - Compo Entry

Snowman loves Kitty is a small story about a Snowman falling in love with a kitty in a snowy backyard that is INCOMPLETE :(

Tools: Javascript, Photoshop, no libs
ONLY TESTED ON CHROME

The snow sim was working great till I discovered a few limitations which I banged my head against most of Sunday so it's just a TOY. Experiment and play around. I'll try upload a non-compo version later with complete story on a different link.

Also for anyone wondering I just had to save the most down voted themes: There is no floor, Love, Kittens & Snowman as well as entire game on one screen ;)

Hi there. Nice toy, had the same experience myself, barely a game but had snow... Prefer your snow to mine - cos it settles, good job on that! Shame no sounds/music. Made it to the roof of the house, which was my aim as soon as saw the settling snow. Good job!

The snow mechanic was nice.

Does not work with FF: gameCanvas.ellipse is not a function.

Pretty cool game! I always like physics / gizmo games like that :)
The concept is pretty cool. It could use some tweaks to make it more easy to control, but it's a pretty good game!

I think I'd like to be able to jump (or maybe I just couldn't find the key?), but still great work and good fun!

Yeah the jump ability was meant to be reserved for the cat. Though TBH if you are making snow you can build a snow pile under yourself. Glad you had fun with it.

@doos you should have played http://liero.be/ worms with all this kinda pixel particle physics.

The idea seems interesting, I always loved those sand game things! I'd like to see how this would work out, too bad it's incomplete. Still, nice job!

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.
