A downloadable game for Windows


Ice Age is a simplistic and very concise 2D platformer. It was originally being made for the Game By Its Cover 2016 game jam, though I intend on expanding it after the jam is complete. My initial plan was simply to construct a cute and tiny game to ensure that I never got overwhelmed and that I could complete it within the 30 day deadline, which I feel I managed to do quite well.

Open Source:

I programmed the game from scratch using C++ and SDL. It is open source (licensed under the LGPL), and the repository can be found here.


If you would like to give me feedback, modify the game, or anything else, I'd love to hear from you! You can send me a tweet (@Frozelar) or send me an email (frostyfish88@gmail.com).

Thanks for checking out my game!

Install instructions

  1. Download the ZIP file and extract the contents wherever you like
  2. Run setup.bat
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions in order to install the Visual Studio development library (which is needed for the game to run) and the game itself
  4. Navigate to the directory where you installed the game and run Ice Age.exe
  5. I would highly recommend reading TUTORIAL.txt (it's very short!) since the controls and fundamentals are not explained in-game
