I find the technical proficiency of this intimidating. 11/10 will rate again.

Completely indecipherable logic at play here. I have no idea what is going on ever.

Also no button to exit the game and I had to alt f4. :/

Love the style, the graphics and the idea ! But searching the magic cube isn't really fun...

I loved it. The graphics were pretty cool, overall it looked very nice.
It was a ton of fun playing the game, mostly because of that cute jump sound of that snowman.
It was a fun game.

Best part: The ending. Oh my god the ending was amazing. Awesome. Really awesome. Had a ton of fun, although it took me way too long to finish the maze, until I realized I ran in circles... oh my.

Great work. I love it.

You win this round, Mister Snowman.

Good use of pitch-shifting. Also good use of vocal chords.

A solid Wat/Wat! Great ending, impossible-to-understand maze. Good graphics, nice touch making it so you can rotate around the levels to check them out. And, of course, great audio.

Wow, that was really weird but funny! :)

I was expecting some use on optical illusion in game mechanics because I saw that you can rotate the scene 360 degree... Anyway, considering the little time Game Jam gives, this game is still very impressive, from graphics, to audio, to the feel of the game... And I haven't solved the game's puzzle yet, so I'm going back to playing it!
Great job!

Just a reminder that there's a link to the 'cheaters map' up above that helps direct you at key intersections.

Cute snowman :D

Ha ha! DAT ENDING. Hilarious. :) If I had one (minor) critique I would say maybe introduce the multiple buttons slightly earlier, it all seemed a bit too simple at first and I wondered if I was missing something! Other than that I really quite enjoyed solving the maze and the quirky humour. Nice one!

That theme song was inspired.

Needs an extra something, just not sure what. I still loved it though!

I really liked the graphics and audio. I think the cheery song is really good and I liked how it slows down to convey progress. Nice mechanic! I really appreciate the unforeseen rewarding ending too! :)

That ending! This is the highest ratings I've given to a game so far.

I really like the concept, and I think you could make a pretty cool puzzle game out of this. Most levels are just get from point a to point b, I think there should be more puzzles. Great use of the theme though.

The game was really funny. I loved the music and the ending made me go 'wtf?' in a good way. :P

I liked the control, moving the bouncy snowman to the beat of the music was fun... But I was just clicking around and going to random places and I won within 2 minutes. I wasn' quite sure where to go or why. XD

Still fun though. :)

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 ( 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.
