Local Toronto studio hosted a friendly competitive game jam with the theme "It's F***ing Cold Out". Inspired by the ridiculously cold January that year, we made a game where the player must survive using the only tool they have: dynamite. But freezing to death isn't the only pitfall, there are Yetis to watch out for as well.
