A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build - puzzle game coming Dec 10th



A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build is an adorable puzzle game about being a monster and making snowmen. More info: agoodsnowman.com



The Team:
* Adorable graphics by Benjamin Davis (Sushi Snake).
* Featuring a gorgeous original soundtrack by Ryan Roth (The Beginner's Guide, Starseed Pilgrim, The Yahwg).
* Lovingly-crafted puzzle design from Alan Hazelden (Sokobond).

I (Alan) haven't released a mobile game in a long while! Years ago I made These Robotic Hearts of Mine (okay, puzzles aren't the strongest), Traal (still pretty good) and Dr. Biology's Educational Game (probably don't bother), but for the last few years I've been focusing on PC & web games.

Ben released a neat puzzle game a while back called Sushi Snake. Maybe check it out while you're waiting for A Good Snowman?



You don't have too long to wait though! We'll be releasing on December 10th. It will be a premium game ($4.99) with no ads or in-app purchases.

I promise the game is good! You can already see it looks lovely, if you listen to the trailer you can get sucked into the sounds, and if you want a sense of the gameplay you can check out some of my many free online puzzles games.

Awards:

Best Character Design - Intel Level Up 2014
Official Selection - Develop Indie Showcase 2014
Official Selection - Screenshake 2015
Official Selection - BAFTA Inside Games Arcade 2015
Official Selection - Different Games Arcade 2015
Official Selection - Fantastic Arcade 2015



I'm pretty confident that we're ready to launch, but it never hurts to double check so there's probably a few testing slots free for the first few people who sign up here.

Thanks for your time, I hope you enjoy the game when it comes out!

I bought this game for PC, and will buy it again for iOS. It is one of the best puzzle games I've ever played.

Omg this is definitely a winner for sure! The simple yet beautiful environment with a great soundtrack and a faceless character that fits perfectly with the puzzles not to mention the great controls . It only took the first 3 to get me hooked

Well done and how much do I need to pay to keep this gem?
