When I try to download it, I get: Error

Looks interesting, I can select the snowman and order them to move around, collect woods. But I am not sure what is the goal of this game; at the beginning I thought I am controlling one side of the snowman and I should beat the other side, but I guess that's not true. Probably more instruction on game operation is needed.

Looks like a great start to an RTS. Good job for a weekend!

Looks and plays great! It's too bad you couldn't finish the rest of the game but it's plain to see how good it was going to look, so great job on getting as far as you did with this entry! :)

I couldn't make sense of it at all, sorry. Great start though! Coding an RTS is no easy feat!

Fitting an entire RTS map onto one screen and it still be playable is no easy feat, nice work, I'd love to see this more fleshed out :D

I liked the idea. As for me, fonts and snowmen themselves are too small at this make game difficult.

I loved the music. I hope to see with more hours of development.

Got a cool thing going here. Seems a bit half finished as I never found any bad guys to fight but I did manage to build a bunch of things and collect several million pounds of resources. :) Good work and good start to something fun.

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.
