Survive being chased by a rolling snowball with a crafty penguin.

Pickup, combine, and throw objects to delay the snowball’s inevitable descent! Throwing objects at the snowball chips away at its continually growing volume, while throwing them at other objects can craft tools to better suit your survival.

To clarify how to combine objects, you can aim your throws. An easy way to do it without precise aim is to carry an object and then throw it downward while sliding through another object. 😀

No background music because of the deadline and also I don't know how to make background music.

Spoiler: The game is possible to beat (i.e., has an ending) if you put more emphasis on crafting fancier tools over throwing every bit of debris at the snowball. 🙂
