Frozen Lake, a VR ice skating game.

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

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:

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!

Hey all, here is my first ever entry into the UE4 game jam as well as my first post!

Thin Ice Fast Arrows
Survive. Keep Warm. Keep Moving.

Solo Entry

Had fun, ran out of time towards the end to polish the UI and get the custom character in there.
Also unfortunately I realised the version I submitted for entry had a game progression bug that stopped you from reaching the Boss. :frowning:
This version has that bug fix and a couple of tweaks.

Here is a version with the progression bug fix as well as a couple of other bug fixes;

And here is the OG submission version without the fixes;

Used a few sounds from freesounds.org and some textures from game textures as well as an Ice Shader from Gumroad.
Along with a few particles with some slight tweaks from Infinity Blade: Effects and a tree from the Soul Cave assets and the UMG system from the Game Jam Kit.

About the game:

Keep moving
The Ice will crack and break under your feet.

Keep Warm.
Find campfires to warm yourself up and restore your health and use your torch to slow the drop of your body temperature, but be weary as the Ice around you will melt quicker.

Hunt down the mysterious dark beast lurking beneath the ice. Use your all powerful Arrows to pierce the dark energy trying to stop you.

Keyboard/Mouse or Gamepad controls (minus the menus)

Best played with a controller

Right stick - Fire
A button - Special attack

WASD - Movement
Arrow Keys - Fire
F Key - Special attack
P Key - Pause
V Key - to remove tutorial

We used a couple of packs, mega jam and pro-sound pack for music and sound effects, the animation starter pack for the animations and we decided last minute to use the chameleon -snow effect for post processing as we had an particle effect but couldn’t keep up with the camera speed.

There are still a few minor bugs, but these bugs don’t affect game play. We are still extremely pleased with the game and final submission.

Hope you enjoy

While making this game, the game type changed about three different times. It started out being a spleef game with a rink of destructible ice, but it ended up being a 2D Shooter Puzzle game. I didn’t have a whole lot of time to spend on level design, so I only made one tutorial level. I learned a lot along the way, and I plan on adding more to the game, including enemies and more levels with actual puzzles.

To Epic: I made a better video to put in the showcase, I linked it here.This one has twice the frame per second!

I’m also a first time game jam participant. I created

**Ice Glider VR **
for HTC Vive

Download Link


  • Start SteamVR
  • Start Ice Glider VR
  • No Controllers needed
  • Steer by rolling head left or right
  • It’s more fun, if others watch you and you try to do it sitting on the virtual sledge on the floor
  • Get as far as you can
  • Rocks become more dense the farer you get
  • Can also be played with [A]/[D] on keys on a screen, but that’s just 3% of the fun you can get

Bonus: You get stronger core muscles!

That was fun! Looking forward to participate in the next gamejam!

Three days is tough but it’s also rewarding putting something together within those confines. It isn’t winter here in NZ so snow and ice wasn’t really on the agenda for this entry. Instead I opted for the precarious situation of defending a battered space station from incoming ice asteroids. Had real fun with this one! Enjoy!

**Objective: **Protect the station as long as possible from a variety of incoming threats.

**Tips: **Asteroids can be neutralized with the beam, metal parts with the magnet and use the grapple to grab volatile items. You can repair damaged parts of the station by hovering near them and holding R. If your ship gets damaged and slow you can use a working repair pad to return it to full health.
