OMG This game was so frigging cute, the art and the story as well! Also, I now have a name for "scene sledding" :D


Aw, thank you!
And yeah it's absolutely something I've done without having a term for it too (well,  normally not specifically with a guy sledding but still). Actually between that and the narrative a lot of this game was drawn from my own experiences, just put in a different context.


Hello, I play your game and made gameplay video on Peertube. I like your game especially the story and pixel art, but I have little thing that I don't like such as the text is almost hard to read and the resolution of the game is too small.

This is the gameplay video: https://peertube.video/videos/watch/5918b947-17a3-4791-9e49-8feff69d64c5

Thank you very much for making this game :-)


Hey, thanks so much!

The resolution and font are inherent to PICO-8, so unfortunately there's no real way around those. (I could make a custom font but then it'd be a struggle to fit enough text on screen). You can, however, go into fullscreen mode with Alt+Enter if that helps.


Yeah, thank you for the fullscreen tip and make this game :-)
