Do You Want To Build A Snowman?

Come on let's go and play

There's a press preview build of A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build by Alan Hazelden and Ben Davis which I've been playing this weekend. I was streaming it because it felt festive and I was trying to cheer myself up after I managed to smash nearly all of my glass baubles in a decorating incident. The puzzle game's not actually due out until the "end of winter" but this should give you an idea of what to expect!

This video is from about half an hour into my playthough - I did the explanation a second time for people who had just joined the stream and it was clearer than the earlier one. There will be a number of puzzle spoilers (and if you look on the ground you might be able to trace how I moved the snowballs in other puzzles so if you prefer to go into the game blind, just know it's a game about rolling snowballs and piling them up in the right order so you can make lovely snow people in a little park.
