Description

A puzzle game about being a monster and making snowmen.

History

It's just before Christmas and two game developers are hunched behind laptops in a nearly-empty café in Coventry. Neither is really committing to doing any work; hey, it's just before Christmas! Besides, they've both just come to the end of long projects and need to wind down. One looks up. So does the other. There's talk of making a festive game; a short, burst of productivity before the seasonal languor. Now, over a year on, we're finally releasing that "quick" Christmas game.

Features

  • Help a strange creature to create snowmen in a barren world.
  • Solve mind-bending puzzles from Alan Hazelden, one of the twisted minds that designed Sokobond.
  • Drink in the charming graphical style from Benjamin Davis
  • Let the beautiful soundscapes from Ryan Roth wash over you.
