Straightforward and charming!

A very silly game. Nice job, though. I laughed when I saw the moose-thing.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 4:23am

Is there a way to beat the game? Anyway, nice job!

Felt weird at first, but once I understood, it got really cute haha. Nice work.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:15am

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:17am

I can't help my self about clicking on thar arousind female moose ! :)
Your "dirty" graphics are quite nice in fact, but the unzoom didn't help to see it properly. I like that style.
And those trees on the left :D

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:43am

Fun little game, very cute

Boberro says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:43am

Yay! So what you can tell us about this charming moose lady?

Thanks again for all the kind words everyone! It's quite nice. Last compo my game was basically impossible, so kind words were few and far between. heh.

wanna know, what happens, if you don´t give him his nose? Check out my game :p

JoshuaBurr says ...

Very funny. I like the art too.

Liam :D says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 5:41pm

A point and click game! :D

You have no idea how happy this made me!

OpenGL says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 5:58pm

A funny puzzle game!!! Nice one!

Nobuyoshi says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:00pm

It was fun. Intuitive and clever.

Ellian says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:21pm

Dat deer lady.

Short and easy, but really cute. :) Keep up the good work!

johnbrynte says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 6:51pm

I like that you didn't have to be told what to do but immediately understood after getting your first arm. It's actually a very good interpretation of the theme, showing the whole game from the beginning though it only makes sense when put into context. Good work!

drludos says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 7:10pm

Nice entry! A simple yet feature complete adventure game, with a very cute Christmas theme, and an interesting quest! Congrats!

bitserum says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 11:36pm

Simple and sweet.

Robber says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 11:57pm

one of the best point and click adventures games i've played!

Noah Ratcliff says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 1:06am

Happy, quick and fun. Great job!

Zi says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 4:01am

Do you want to build a snowman?
Yes. Yes I would.

;)

Dec 10, 2014 @ 6:53pm

Such a cute little snowman. Quick and fun game! I Included it in part 5 of my Ludum Dare 31 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/-qEX6yeW8uQ

Sestren says ...
Dec 10, 2014 @ 8:53pm

Love the wink at the end and the sound and music. Very cute!

Dec 11, 2014 @ 6:08pm

I thought this was going to be the moose version of Basic Instinct...!
Short but sweet little game, condensing a whole series of quests onto a single screen. I think the design was good because I immediately understood what I'd have to do an how all the elements were supposed to work

cxsquared says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 7:06pm

Really cool adventure game. I quite enjoyed it.

Omiya Games says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 8:11pm

I...well...OK...
That instruction was very literal.
I think it could have used some more complicated point & click adventure puzzles to spice things up a bit. Still, I got to the end without raging, so that's good.

andrewkennedy says ...
Dec 12, 2014 @ 12:21am

Heh, I loved building the snowman! Simple point-and-click game, but fun nonetheless!

spacedoubt says ...
Dec 12, 2014 @ 12:35am

I'm glad people are enjoying it. Especially glad to hear folks say it's intuitive. I always like games that don't need words. That was one of my goals. Thanks for the comments!

Dec 12, 2014 @ 11:45am

Haha. Kinda fun. The limited amount of options made it possible to go through the game without too much frustration. Good job!

Erkberg says ...
Dec 12, 2014 @ 11:59pm

A very cute little game. I did enjoy the progress towards true snowmanliness. The graphics were a little incohesive, but this made the interactive objects stick out more, so maybe that's intended. I really liked the snowflakes effect, audio was cute and fitting too. Overall, I enjoyed this little journey very much, good job!

Backterria says ...
Dec 13, 2014 @ 5:58am

Very good atmosphere and the music has such a great feeling!nice job overall

alyphen says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 12:40pm

Aha, made me giggle a little. It's a little too short, not much content, and a little to easy, but the interacctions available were pretty genious. The reindeer is fantastic! XD
The art is decent, and the music fits it well.

You did a lot of things right:
- Not too hard
- Definitive ending
- Felt complete
- Easy to pick up and play
- Very charming

It wasn't an epic game (nor do I think it was meant to be), but it was an excellent LD entry. The little wink at the end was my favorite :).

Slothmachine says ...
Dec 15, 2014 @ 3:46pm

Lovely. I am a snowman now. :)

Myyyvothrr says ...
Dec 16, 2014 @ 1:13pm

benmcnelly says ...
Dec 17, 2014 @ 3:03am

That wink creeped me out a bit but such a cute game. I thought the path finding was pretty good too. Nice work!

Kimau says ...

Charming little game, the perfect LD entry!

SuperDisk says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 7:27am

Neato! I didn't really get it at first but once I picked up an arm it all fell into place. Cool game.

pht59x says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 7:37am

Cute. It made me click through to those snowflakes.

frokes says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 8:36am

Cool little game!

Dec 28, 2014 @ 9:29am

Strange how this SNOWman gives me a WARM feeling.

Nice poetic experience.

Thank you !

Dec 28, 2014 @ 10:21am

Very cute :) Good job !

Wirtualnosc says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 10:47am

Pretty good entry (and weird as well)! The game was pretty straightforward once I figured out what was my goal.

RHY3756547 says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 1:04pm

Cool, if a little short! I was confused why I couldn't get the hat earlier (clicking it just moved me above it), but after I got everything else it let me get it.

bobombe says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 1:50pm

Hehe, it's sooo cuute ^^

klianc09 says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 4:42pm

Well, that was ... interesting. Simple and pretty short, but it got a really unique vibe to it. I love how there are just upside-down trees at the bottom of the screen :D

lxd1 says ...
Dec 28, 2014 @ 5:07pm

Fun

erik says ...
Dec 29, 2014 @ 11:27am

It's a thing! I found it surprisingly interesting, considering how small it is. Nice job.
