Proud part of the PICO-8 Advent Calendar 2018.



Your friends play a puzzle challenge in the snow. But they can't make it on their own, they can only do it if everyone works together and helps each other - celebrating friendship and the most special time of the year: Christmas.

It doesn't load the game here for me :(.

Hey Matthias 

With our game launchpad coming up soon, I'm looking for cool small games to feature. This is a pretty good operating since it will give an additional income stream with no effort required. The idea is that people can resell their games after they're done playing. So if you are up for a small experiment, let me know, and I will provide you with a few more details. Also follow me back on twitter so we can DM.
Gerne auch auf Deutsch:)

Kind regards

Hello, I am in the process of setting up a bundle of paid games made with Pico-8 on itch~ If this is something you are interested in or just want more info, you can message me on Twitter~

very fun


Launched DX version on Raspberry Pi, but it didn't work

Hi. Sorry to hear that. I have no experience regarding Raspberry Pi - the linux build is a stand-alone build that needs SDL (and other dependencies). Maybe there is a dependency missing? Can you run the PICO-8 tool in general on your device?


(1 edit)

I have sent you the p8 cartridge for the DX version (to your email) - you can load and run this via the pico-8 tool. Enjoy! And Happy New Year! :DDD


^^Here is a playthrough for anyone getting stuck in one of the levels. Played through the free version. ^^

This is awesome!


Very well made! I had fun with it :D


Really well-done, polished little puzzle game!

Thanks. Means a lot 🙂!
