Snow You Want to be a Snow Plow Driver?

Congratulations! It's your first day at your new job as a snow plow driver for the city of Chillsville. You've never driven a snow plow before, but it looks like fun! How hard can it be? Chillsville frequently gets large amounts of snow, so it's up to you to make sure that the citizens don't get snowed in for too long.

Gameplay:

Remove snow from the streets by driving your snowplow over it (and earn money for it!). If a city block gets snowed in for too long, the citizens will starve, and you lose.

Upgrade your snowplow using the menu on the right. Upgrading your tires increases your max speed, upgrading your plow means snow won't slow you down as much when you drive into it. 

Use the minimap in the top right to know which blocks need your help the most.

Controls:

WASD to move, menu on the right to upgrade your snowplow.

(Or you can try using a controller: JoystickButton0 = Upgrade Tires, JoystickButton1 = Upgrade Plow)

Tools Used:

  • Unity
  • Visual Studio Community 2017 w/Resharper
  • Krita
  • Gimp
  • Audacity
  • abundant-music.com

Known Bugs

  • You can get caught on the sides of buildings sometimes (this is easier to avoid if you use a controller)
  • Unity fullscreen mode cuts off the sidebar (however the itch.io fullscreen button behaves better and covers up the unity fullscreen button so...)
