Cute snowmen art! Sounds are funny too.

A nice and standard dress up game. Unfortunately there's not much in the way of innovation but it's still pretty decent.

Hands down the best game I've seen. I managed to make my snowman the prettiest girl ever. Now she can go to prom and get all the boys. The sounds were great.

I had a good laugh from the voice overs ! Presentation and music were both good, nice work.

Good game, shame i didn't have any sound (that's my fault though) so don't worry.

Such a beautiful snow(wo-)man!
Funny little game. Nice voice over :D

The UI has some minor bugs. But nothing game breaking.

Oh yes I love dress up games. The comments are super funny, too bad there's not more options, I'd have loved to make this snowman even more fab.

I worked on this game with Stvr (my husband) and there was a lot more we wanted to add but I hope it is fun for everyone in its current state!

Not a huge fan of dress-up games, but it was well-animated and illustrated.

Oh god, I played so many of these games in my teens... it's the first one I've ever seen posted for an LD, though! Kudos to you!

Something really nice would have been the ability to remove only *one* thing from my snowperson, without totally resetting everything. I wanted to find out what the candy cane did without necessarily being stuck with it! Facilitating choice and fantasy is pretty much the most important thing in these games...

Still, good job. I loved the touch where the character's eyes follow you around, and the audio voiceover was nice, too. Thank you for the game!

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.
