Melting Snow: Hide and Seek is a two-player hide and seek game played in the snow. The first player hides. As you do so, you inevitably leave clues: footprints in the snow, barrels pushed out of place, gates left open, chickens frightened into odd places. After you hide, the second player (who has been closing his eyes) takes over as the seeker. You look for the hider, but not just anywhere: try to narrow your search by deducing where the hider must be. To investigate a place, move to it and then tap the Z and X keys rapidly back and forth. Once you've filled the search bar the game will tell you whether you've found the hider. If not, keep searching until the time runs out.

Good, quick fun for families and friends. Enjoy!

I'm an experienced game developer, but this is my first pico-8 cartridge. It was an absolute blast to make. pico-8 is a joy. Lexaloffle is a miracle. You've simply made one outstandingly good decision after another in the design of pico-8, from the command line to the tools to the palette and on and on: thousands of decisions that seem so inevitable, yet few developers—large or small—ever get this much right. Totally genius. Thanks so much.

I love this idea! So far only tested this alone, but everything looks and works great. In the following days will let you know how this works with 2 players. :)

This game is very original and a lot of fun with two. Love the bird flocks (reminds me of those pesky Zelda chickens).

I think I might have to make an exception to the "no 2 player games" rule and add this to my curated list website. It's just such a good idea and so well polished...

Spent an hour last night playing this with my 5 year old on the PocketCHIP. It's great! She didn't want to put it down.

Love all the polish and details you put into it. Lots of possibilities for fake-outs and trickery while still being pretty balanced.

Hey just wanted to say that my son and daughter (3 And 6) STILL request to play this pretty often -- it's a fun cart :)

Do you plan on making a sequel with a new map?

@enargy I'm so glad they enjoy it! I hadn't thought about making a sequel. A new map would be pretty easy to do. I wonder if another player could put that together using the pico-8 map editor?
