Roll full steam ahead down the snowy mountain top, saving your snow lemming friends while avoiding obstacles in preparation for the big final jump to safety!

Our Theme for the GGJ was: As long as we have eachother, there will always be problems. Our Adjective was Cold.

The concept of this game was based on an increasing mass of critters held together within a snowball. As the snowball rolls down the hill it picks up more critters and snow, gaining in mass, and if it hits an obstacle it is larger then, it gains even more mass, becoming more and more out of control, and you actually start to lose the ability to brake, or accelerate or jump.

The game was originally designed to become more and more chaotic, mayhem, smashing and crashing through obstacles. But after establishing the simple vector styling, it evolved into this soothing, roll down a mountain.

In it's current state the game is not 100%, but we plan to develop it further, we actually discovered that even just having an endless loop with the ever expanding snowball, and no obstacles, is a soothing and relaxing experience...
