Click with left-mouse-button to support the snowmen, click with right-mouse-button to support the humans.

This game is a 'little' unfinished and buggy ...
There is no real goal or end to the game, the idea is to keep the balance between humans and snowmen as long as possible so none get extinct.

OS/X not tested, Windows only tested on Linux with wine, Linux users might have to add the executable-flag to the binaries.

This is a really neat and relaxing game.
I like it. It worked perfectly fine on my end.

A neat idea. The game crashes from time to time though (Windows machine).

I like the game idea a lot and the fiery glow creates a great mood. When it works. Sadly, anything above 2 light sources caused the lights to glitch out and flicker. I'd love to see a version without light glitches and a bit more stuff happening on the ground. I like that the player only influences the balance.

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.
