Hide-n-Seek Winter Released! (Birthday Release!)

     It's finally here everyone! After over three months of work I finally finished my newest game project, "Hide-n-Seek Winter". A unique toon/cel-shaded adventure,action,puzzle game that takes place in a world that never stops snowing. Today is a special release day because it is also my 21st birthday (woooooo!).

I started this project almost immediately after I released "Forest Soup" (my short Halloween game release of 2013) and since then I have been posting updates about it. I had originally planned on finishing and releasing this game before the end of 2013 but then I started to make many changes to the game as I developed it and that led it to take even longer to make. If you have seen my very early updates of this game you can see the difference. I have scrapped levels, re-textured all of my game models and just changed a lot of things. It was frustrating at times but for the most part it was a smooth development process. Out of all my games so far, I have to say that this one was my biggest and most serious one yet. It was definitely a challenge to create this one especially since I created all the assets from scratch, but its finally complete. I am very proud of this specific game project. I believe that this is a major step up compared to my other games and is my most polished game yet. Gameplay mechanics, graphics and overall gamedesign have all improved with this game project. It took a lot of hard work and time to create this but it was well worth it and I feel like I have become a better game developer for it. This is my first game release of 2014 and I can't wait to start working on my next game projects! Ok that's enough bragging for now. Lets just get to the game! :)

To get you a bit more interested in this game if your not already here is the newest trailer I created for it. Enjoy! Download links to game down below.

Hide-n-Seek Winter Release Trailer:

(for those of you who want to know what this game is even about)
     After playing a game of hide and seek, little sister Frosty compliments her big brother Choco by telling him that he is the greatest hide and seek player ever. After saying this, the "Hiding Demon" suddenly appears and refuses to believe that choco is the greatest hide and seek player ever. The hiding demon then kidnaps Choco's little sister and disappears. The hiding demon tells Choco to meet him at the frozen pond in the "Infinite Snow World", a strange alternate dimension world where it snows forever. In order for Choco to rescue his little sister, he must defeat the hiding demon in a game of hide and seek.

-Is it Free? 
     Of course it is silly! Like all my previous games, this game, "Hide-n-Seek Winter" is 100% free to download and play. No ads, no in game purchases or anything. Just my awsome toon game :)
-What can I play your game on?
     The game is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. (It may become available for other platforms such as webplayer and android devices if I decide to port it sometime. I will most likely release a webplayer later on for sure though. As for android, I am interested in porting to that device. If I see enough people are interested in it then I will probably also port it to android to)

-I encountered a problem or found a bug in your game while playing
     No matter how polished a game is a bug is bound to pop up somewhere. Even though I tested this game many times with no problem you might run into a bug on rare occasions. If you do please let me know. Leave a comment or send me a message telling me about it so I can work on patching it up.
