Midnight Delivery

by CamillaHorne - Jam Entry

A Christmas Puzzle.

Controls: Arrow keys or WASD, whatever you prefer.

You control a crate that has been lost in the snow on Christmas Eve. It needs to find its way to the nearest delivery service to reach it's destination in time, but each time it arrives the delivery service is closed for the day. (This isn't illustrated at all, since we didn't have an artist on the team)

The game is created by @NiklasSonaten and @CamillaHorne
Sounds is from http://www.freesfx.co.uk/

Pretty nice, the level transitions are awesome (although the wind noise is a tad loud and dissonant)!

I like the levels they're really cool and I like the aspect of strategy

I like this game. It's like Bloxorz but with snow and variation.

Great puzzle! I like level changing animation, carefully done.

Great game! Good puzzles and level design that seems to be carefully made, good progression. Even with the lack of artist the game is very preety, minimalism and focus on details is a good thing sometimes

Awesome game! I like how the three crates change the play style and I really digg the level change, fits the theme perfectly.

I like the atmosphere that you achieved, even with so little graphic resources. The music and puzzles do a lot for the game.

Ooooh, a Danish game! Must be good then! *plays game*

Ooooh, it was good! The transitions are a nice touch!
As for the overall design, it was very good. The levels progressed in the perfect manner, either teaching you new tricks or asking to use the new tricks in a challenging way.

Good job, you two!

Amazing fun puzzle game. Good choice of music and the graphics are just lovely.

This game is seriously addicting. I love the snow mechanic for changing levels while not changing the screen...very clever.

Very nice Puzzle game, as said before a remake of another game with a twist but still a very good effort.

Nice puzzle ideas, it was nice to play.
It don't see how it fit the theme also, but that's not so much of a problem

It's not a new concept but it's well executed and I like how you use the snow to make the game fit on one screen.

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.
