Hilarious game, assuming you opted out of all ratings as I don't see any available. But a funny concept, I had fun!

Why be so cruel with this snowman? Will be SantaClaus revenge soon :) C'est intéressant comme concept - une espèce de QCM afin d'aboutir au résultat souhaité. C'est soigné comme jeu. Merci pour ton commentaire en français.
Neat. Well done ++

Verry cool!
Good interpretation of the theme.
This game is kinda better than the Torture scene from GTA5 =o)

Although when the guys working for the boss are talking, it's a bit confusing, maybe you could have add the names before the sentences (like you did when the snowman speak.), or maybe a little picture of their faces?

It's really fun ^_^

I also included your game in an article of my favorites!

I'll be honest I had to play this after Christmas! I didn't want to beat up the poor snowman. I actually felt bad for him! XD

But turns out he was the culprit! The ending was very very funny. :)

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.
