Sorry the Snowman

by Dezzles - Compo Entry

Sorry the Snowman didn't realise that Christmas wasn't exactly pleasant for a snowman and desperately wants to escape to somewhere a little colder like England or Canada or the Sahara...

Unfortunately, he's lost his teleportation device laying around somewhere and there's a whole bunch of broken ones everywhere!

Esc to quit. The game is not broken. It is behaving EXACTLY as intended. Have fun

Voxel's challenge completed. I'm so, so sorry...

Just Wow. The funniest game on the whole ld31. Also found out that my screen was not big enough :D

Frustrating and hilarious! Hope people don't just skip past that intro music and experience it all. The presentation is ace! Good spin on the theme too.

There's a bug: the intro song should *not* be skippable. Scrambling was a touch of evil genius. Sir I salute you and your passable singing voice.

Haha, awesome. Almost shouted when I got a radio and the windows rescrambled! Sometimes had an issue where a window wouldn't focus when I clicked on it... strange. Awesome idea, and congratulations on beating voxel's challenge. :)

Wow, pretty original, best take on the theme so far. Easy to miss this game, but playing it was a great surprise :D

Very nice interpretation of the theme!

Definitely the most innovative concept I've seen, also the most creative use of the theme. Technically it's the exact opposite of the theme, but I loved the use of it. Unfortunately my screen isn't tall enough to fit all the windows, but it's a cute and novel concept. Good song, and it's good to see more Australian game devs!

That whole hundred window thing, that was cool.

Missing MSVCR110.dll.
I tried to install the last Redistribuable Visual C++ but it didn't work.

Om dear, THE MESS!
This is best take on the theme i've seen so far. It's genious, and your singing is brillo! :D
A truly fantastic creation of evil australian mind.

It was an interesting concept, and I really liked the introduction, included it in my random LD31 gameplay video:

Innovative, did not expect that really.

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 ( 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.
