🌨 Snowy Survival

In Snowy Survival, your goal is simple: survive as long as possible. At the start of the game, one player is randomly cursed and given a Snowball Launcher to knockout other players. Everybody else must run and evade the curse. If they are knocked out, they become cursed too. The game ends when everyone is cursed!

Regular players try to avoid getting knocked out and becoming cursed. Cursed players try to knockout players to add to the Cursed.
Cursed players start with a Snowball Launcher. Regular players can plant, grow, and harvest Snowball Launchers in the farming area.

Select the "Projectile" icon to enable snowball-throwing. Aim and throw snowballs by clicking with a mouse or tapping the screen with a finger on touch screens.
The game ends when the last player is knocked out and all players are Cursed. Or, the host can end the game manually.

Use "1" and "2" on your keyboard to quickly toggle between regular gameplay and throwing snowballs.

The farming area can be used to grow everything from Snowball Launchers and Med Packs to gold keys.
