Free Snowman Ops [Pre-rendered Graphics/Experiment]


I wanted to make an old skool low res hunting/shooting game, or at least a basic framework. I made a landscape in 3D, and then added the animated elf/santa guy on the snow mobile, which was admittedly quite tedious.

Then, I had to do a lot of Photoshop work, followed by some PNG optimization. After that, I threw it together in GMS and tweaked it here and there.

How to play? You attempt to left click the snowmobiles. If you succeed, the snow mobiles and guy explode into a ball of flame. Right click spawns in more snow mobiles. I have some ideas on how to improve the game play, but at the moment it's just an engine and process. Happy sniping, and feel free to shoot me any game development or design questions!
