Looks so cool, but I have Linux and can't run unity in web. Could you build to Linux or is that not possible?

Fantastic art! Would make a good mobile title once it is fleshed out. Fun idea.

Cool idea! Nice graphics and funny snowmen. Although the rotation of the sleigh and the actual movement seem a bit off (especially with bigger turns) the gameplay is quite good!

Love the game's mood, the controls are simple and easy to grasp but I'm not sure if it fits the theme. Other than that, a bundle of fun.

Good game, the controls feel ok until I tried to make a closed turn and couldn't :(.

I'd say go for it and keep on polishing it!

Cool game to play. Graphics look quite amazing and the theme of the game really gets me into the christmas mood. This game would benefit so much from a little bit of sound and music!!! I would definitely play this on my phone if it had some way of progres. Usable items, powerups ala mario cart like boosts etc. Also, bro tip, clear the first few meters so people can test the controls and adjust to them. Sometimes there spawns a snowman right in front of you. Since you are Jam contestants, get some 'opensource' music to accompany the game.

Hi, I like the graphics and feeling of riding down the hill.
You should definitely adjust the movement, to make it more real, like in classic snowboard games.

Nice game, snowmen everywhere! I like how the sledge trembles to reflect the speed of it. Also, looking it from certain angle (ignoring shadow coloring) it looks like a trophy stand, which makes it even funnier :D

Someone wanted a Snowman to become a theme.

Beautiful game but sometimes seems a bit impossible. Maybe it's just me :3

Thanks you for this christmas mood!

Really a cool game! I could honestly play forever. Thanks for making the Unity Port!

Great game, especially when you pass the number 30 :D
You should let the players hit the snowmen with the left and right sides of the sledge, and only die when they make a frontal crash. It would make a game more fun.
At least I would give it a try. :D

Quite fun although I found the collision areas a little frustrating and the shadows from chunks behind me disappearing onscreen rather distracting. Not sure if the placement of obstacles was completely random but there were occasions where I felt like there was no way to get past a given layout, having preset chunks that link together may have been a better approach. Controls were good although tight turns threw the split of axial movement into sharp relief, may have been easier if the sleigh only moved in it's facing direction.

Loved the visuals and never got tired of seeing the snowman with shades, seriously 'cool'... *cough*

Nice and fun game, but don't fit theme. Some snowmans looks like really cool dudes.

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.
