Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

The Return of Snowdriftland

4 years ago, Nintendo Europe sponsored a neat little Advent Calendar/platformer. Every day there was a new level, and when you completed it you got to download a little set of goodies related to a Wii or DS game. It was surprisingly well done with some neat ideas, and was well-liked here. Unfortunately, sometime in January 2007 it was taken down and never heard from again. The same guys worked with Nintendo to do another game for Easter 2007, but it was equally short-lived (although this game, Chick Chick Boom, was recently released on Wii Ware).

Snowdriftland is back. You'll be playing catch-up since it's already December 10th, but it's worth it. It's been 4 years, so I can't remember if the levels themselves have changed. I know the world themes and music are identical and I recognize some of the general ideas being used in the level designs, but I couldn't tell you if it's the same game or not. Then again, if I can't remember, it might as well be a brand new game anyway right? Anyway, play it, enjoy it.

    Snowdriftland is back? Why didn't anyone tell me!?

    I was one of those who really liked that game. The music was pretty awesome.

    I don't know why this game's return has been so silent, myself not realizing it was back until today. I was sad it didn't come back 3 years ago, and now, it pops up back with no warning. I think I still have the prizes from last time somewhere.

    Looks like they didn't change the plot much, and I'm not sure if the stages are new or just re-using the old ones, but it deserves a play from everyone.

    Starting stage 7 with 3 hearts, it's still a fun little platformer. :)

    I played through the first level, and it's definitely just a re-used one. I remember some of the snowflakes that made me pull my hair out back then. It was a fun game though, and people should give it a shot.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's the exact same game as last time. Still has some awesome music, though. Especially the forest.
