Ludum Dare 30
Ice Box - 2HitMatt - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This game sums up the last 8 months of work for me. Isolated in my office, freezing to death to try and earn enough money to get my family by. Spending time with them whenever possible or going to the beach to stay sane.
Now it can be your struggle too!
How To Play
Spacebar - interact
Arrows - move around
Aim: Earn a lot of money, by working at the computer.
Catch: Your office is freezing to work in!
Press space to interact with things in each room. Talking to family will increase your interest, going to beach will increase heat, eating will increase hunger which staves off heat loss. Drinking? You find out.
Let your heat drop to zero and you die. Try to do as much work as possible at the computer before the time runs out, earn them cash dollars!
Let me know how much money you make! :D @2HitMatt

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
