Sydney, 24/5/19 - The Melt Games team are thrilled to release their debut game release Mount Frosty, filled with endless mountains of arcade skiing action - in the nostalgic traditions of PC and Mac classic, Ski Free.
Out now on Google Play Store and Apple App Store , Mount Frosty is an endless mountain adventure, focused on skiing downhill whilst avoiding obstacles. The mountain is full of colour and teeming with life, with a cast of memorable and zany characters. Take to the slopes and see how long you can survive - dodge obstacles, collect coins, unlock characters, and be ready for some surprises!
"When we started thinking about the game, we thought it would be great if crashing made you smile rather than frustrated." Simon Giles said, "We built a really basic 3D prototype of our main character crashing and everyone we showed it to laughed. From this prototype, we decided to go all-in with ragdoll physics, so you can expect some hilarious crashes that will make you laugh even if you just miss out on beating your friend's score."
About the game's decidedly chilly aesthetics, Zenta Staley explained, "Ice cream, snowy mountains and video games take us back to our childhoods. We are kids at heart and refuse to grow up. We love the colour palette of ice cream and desserts. Presentation is just as important as the taste. You eat with not only your mouth, but your eyes too."
