Very interesting idea, with some charming graphics and music, though I struggled to play it because it was very buggy and I fell out of the world multiple times.

I think it's a decent idea. I couldn't make it to the end because I kept falling through the ground. I did see the hints at the theme though.

@QuinnandWin @markten I fixed all the falling bugs, and you can make it to the ending without falling now. Just wanted to tell you if your still interested

Cool concept (pun intended)
Fell off the world many many times

Nice concept. A little rough on some of the artwork but nothing jarring by any means. (For example, the background image on the first non-start screen ends lower than you can see if you jump.)
Music was nice and relaxing--fit well with the game as a whole.
The gameplay itself didn't seem especially deep considering you could get enough energy cells to complete the game in just one season..? (Maybe I'm missing something, or maybe that's the whole point, given the name of the game. :P )
Was a little annoying to have to return to the first screen to change seasons, but I can see why you did it.

Nice game! :)

@Skruffye the gameplay was a bit rough, yeah, but there are three power cells and two of them require changing to summer. Thanks for your feedback, though!

Interesting. Took me a bit to understand what to do, but once I got it, it was nice to play through.

I got stuck at the bear, couldn't figure out what to do - space didn't do anything to the bear nor did it ever change a season. I also still fell through the world a bunch of times.

The graphics are pretty basic, and while I am glad you have music it's a pretty minimal score.

@Flaterectomy Your supposed to press space while next to the big thermostat thing

Interesting game, but spacebar and shift didnt seem to work for me. I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/gkZsQxjDEm8
