This game is so fun and chill and I'm so impressed by the pico 3d
Winter is coming (as every year actually...), time for some skiing!
Enjoy going down the slope, trying to beat your previous track record or freeriding skills!
Grab coins or perform tricks for some extra time bonus - watch out for off track hazards!
Note: there is no end racing line - you **will** lose :] question is how much time will you last?
- Left/Right: control direction
-🅾️(c key): jump (hold to charge)
-❎(x key): restart (if stuck)
- blue: easy
- red: moderate, with side tracks. Practice your tricks.
- black: hard, with side tracks. Tricks or time out!

Wow, this Game makes fun!
Reminds me of Accolade's The Games: Winter Edition. (used to play the hell out of it as a kid)
Very good. I really enjoyed playing and racing/sloping down in the snow. Relaxing game :), almost even meditational.
Very nice game.
The gameplay is good, but what really makes it good is the pixel art, a true artist. The only problem that i see is the dots that are on the snow, i know that is the shadow, but is also very creepy to the eyes, there must be a easy way to make shadows.
sorry about that - pico8 color palette is very limited, I found that dithering to best convey slope variation over snow.
How do i start?? I cant tried smashing all my buttons but it doesn't work lol?? i picked my level and i dont know what to press so help me out pls... i like the idea of the game tho!
graphics is awesome!
Uhh... for some reason it's easier for me to go backwards.
i love these graphics!!
Amazing!!! Awesome smooth gameplay! Especially for pico 8
Really good feelings about this game, nice design, well done, more like this one please !
This is awesome. Kudos to you!
This game is AMAZING! The things you can do with Pico-8 always amaze me. Also, in the instructions, I think you mean lose, not loose.
Hahaha "Number of tricks: 1 (meh)" This is awesome!! Love the look and feel of the game. How you slide backwards if you don't have enough speed and how you can jump around or over things is really fun!
The styling of this is amazing! The sounds, the controls, and obviously the visuals. I love it.
freds72 keep up your good work! i have no idea if you make these pico-8 games anymore, but i love the ones you have! i would love it if you made more!
Thanks! I do keep making games. I have a day job so time for gamedev is limited. I am posting work in progress on Tweeter.
idk i love the psudo-3D look with the pico8 games. I made my raspberry pie 3 into a handheld emulator console and I would love to figure out if I can stick pico 8 games onto it. THE QUEST FOR KNOwLEDGE BEGINS
Very nice, but aren't the skis a bit wrong? If I was to turn to the right, I would put my left ski in front, not the right? And to the left side I would put the right ski in front.... Or is it too long ago I went skiing? :)
gives a better sense of ‘slope’ imho - I’ll check (at ski resort atm!!)
Great Game! Fun! :D
Really cool game, I especially like that your rewarded points for going backwards. it makes it feel like your getting points for thinking outside the box.
This was lots of fun, Thank you :)
Winter is coming
only in the northern hemisphere but ok
I'm digging the music!
Made a video
Nice watch! make sure to try out the new version with more rewards for dangerous skiing ;)
Love the art style of this game! Had fun playing it.
This is a really fun game, i'd love to see what else you could make with the 3d terrain generation. maybe a flight sim?
Looks great! Needs mobile support.
you mean without the d-pad on screen?
I don't know how you guys pull this kind of stuff off, it's awesome though
Great Game !! Thanks
It look good
Definitely your most fun game so far.
I was thinking, sure, I'll try this out. Didn't look too interesting in a technical sense.
Then I saw the PICO-8 startup and was blown away by the fact this game can fit within a png. Absolutely crazy, awesome work. Keep it up!
Thanks - behond the png gimmick, it means that everything is done by my code (or functions shared by the community), like 3d rasterization!
was it hard to code?
No but only thanks to the previous games I made - it took something like 2 months to do (my shortest dev time!).
See the BBS link for some screens of the work in progress.
Actually the most difficult part was to make it fun and interesting to play.
Very nice! Plays well and is very impressive from a technical standpoint.
