Trailer for the game

We originally made cutscenes for the intro, but the Cutscene-level refused to open other levels… So we recorded the cutscene & display it on an in-game TV-mesh.
Our Sound-design/Music guy actually used an analog synth to make most of the music, and parts of the sound design, which is pretty neat!

Frozen Lake, a VR ice skating game.

(Built and tested on Oculus Rift. Vive or MR support is unknown)

Playable Link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lLx4mfF1W36IR8aumSAojccwEv2V877a

Game title: A business on thin ice
Download link: HERE

Why not build a factory on an iceberg? Naturally because it’s a really bad idea.

To save your sinking factory, you have to earn $ 50,000,000.00 to move the factory back on land. And the time to save the factory is very limited.

How to play
All you need to play is a mouse and a windows computer.

Used Software

  • Unreal Engine 4.18.3
  • Inkscape
  • GIMP
  • Audacity
  • LMMS

Good luck and have fun

Less sleepy version of the post on the other thread:

Our team (AlexRichards / chrismcr / edoartworks / efrenstudios) made a game called “Do Cats Dream of Electric Tin Bulb-Bots?
Download: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qO…oLkZ_q_IeSu1kD
Video: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lR…LE8hOeMhYJJ6Ly

It’s set in a dark future where you must pose a robot made out of a cat food tin and lightbulbs for the amusement of of disinterested Kitty Overlords.
Controls: use the mouse to drag the ANKLES, **WRISTS **and **NECK **of the bot. It is unfairly difficult, sorry! (but maybe that’s because the cats don’t want you to win)

We spent around 24 hours in total on the game - nobody took time off from work and we weren’t going to skip sleep at any point, so I’m quite pleased with what we managed in that time.

Originally we’d interpreted “on thin ice” as “on your last chance”, which made us think of being held in judgement… that led to cats because there are no creatures more judgemental than cats… 3 days later and we had a game that frankly didn’t have a lot to do with the theme - so we put some ice textures on it. Ta-da!

Assets not made by the team were a material and a couple of particle effects from InfinityBladeIceLands, some SFX from freesfx.co.uk and SFX from the following users on freesound.org:
TheDweebMan, TheGertz, shymary, InspectorJ, Puniho, passAirmangrace, Timbre, mobeyee.com, magedu, kwahmah_02.

I sadly had to work alone on this jam but I did my best. Dedicated to my friend Trisu.

You control a little robot who has to escape from deadly and earth melting sunbeams.
Run through the levels as fast as possible and escape earth or get melted by the sunbeams.

Have fun and thanks for playing!


  • Move with Keys A and D
  • Jump with Space Bar (The robot has a booster for double-jumps)
  • Aim with the mouse
  • Left mouse button fires a fireball to melt ice blocks. (Warning, can destroy your robot)
  • Right mouse button fires a ball of ice to freeze water and/or your robot

My first game jam ever - wow! What a fun weekend! ​ We had a team of 5 and really worked up to the wire to create all of the visual assets from scratch (Submitted at 11:49)!
Watching everyone else’s progress on Twitter was also amazing!

This is what ours ended up looking like:

Introducing our VR game Ice Castle Hassle!

Let the villagers through, but sink the monsters by shooting fire balls to break the ice or ice balls to restore it.
Full instructions included in the “README” in the zip!

Here’s a small trailer I cut together last night:

And this is what some unedited gameplay looks like:

Download the game here:

We’d also love to hear your feedback!

Have fun!
I can’t wait to try out everyone else’s games!

Most of us are new to game jamming or our fist time doing it for the Unreal game jam, but we had a lot of fun and despite our busy daily lives, managed to make something fun too! In this game, you are a snow plow trying to plow the neighborhood street as fast as you can! Just watch out for the ice on the streets and the parked cars and other things as you go because they will get in your way! There are two ways to be on thin ice in this game; Literally being on ice and based on time, but we found that it was just as fun to just plow everything in sight! We hope you guys enjoy it!

Controls: Left and Right arrows.

Thanks to Kevin Macleod for making Cyborg Ninja (background music) and posting it online for all to use!

A huge thank you to Epic Games / Unreal for the opportunity to take part in a community event, and last but not least the awesome team members I had the pleasure of working with!

Nanuq on Ice

Concept: Typical platformer with destructibles, sounds effects made with my mouth, and a few glitches! Play as Nanuq as you try to get from one side of the lake to the other. As you progress in levels, the size of level increases and traps making it increasingly harder to progress. An endless game of fun! If endless isn’t your jig, try out time trials!
