Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Igloo

by ratly - Jam Entry

This didn't end up becoming a real game. It's a snow-block sandbox (snowbox?) where the goal is supposed to be to build an igloo by shaping 6-sided blocks of ice. It's nearly impossible in the current form, but it would probably be better with VR and/or 3D controls, so I'll try that in the future. You can also try to build other standing structures.

Controls:

MOVE using arrow keys.
PICK UP a block by right-clicking it while standing nearby.
DUPLICATE a block by holding X while right-clicking.

When holding a block:
POSITION BLOCK using the mouse.
SHAPE BLOCK by holding Z and clicking near an edge to shave that face/edge.
ROTATE BLOCK by holding control and dragging mouse.

Press H to toggle these instructions in game.

Nice job ! The ice shaping and duplicating features are good ideas. If you indeed make a VR version or something to improve the controls, it could really become fun !

Works very well as a physics construction game. Nice concept too.

Architecture is hard.
I thought building igloos was an exception.
It wasn't
