    Hello CubeCrafters!

Introducing part 2 of our Christmas update, which brings more Christmas maps to spice up your gaming experience during the holidays. Also within this update brings back our demanded Christmas game, Snowman Survival.

    Snowman Survival is back!.png

    It's back! Snowman Survival joins the wonders of CubeCraft Games once again. Only available during Christmas, this mini-game brings a jolly and Christmas'y feeling to the infection themed games. Snowman Survival allows 8 players and there are 3 maps available to join and choose from.

    Snowman Survival is a fun game where the objective is to survive as long as you can, without the Snowman giving you frostbite! The game starts with 8 players, then the sacred Snowman performs a ritual and the starting Snowman is chosen. The remaining players are human survivors and have a brief grace period of 7 seconds to run away before the Snowman is released. Humans need to run and hide whilst dodging the Snowballs that the Snowmen throw! The first Snowman needs to throw his Snowballs at survivors, this will convert the Survivors in to more Snowmen.

    Starting Snowman being selected.

    As a Snowman, you have TWO ways to shoot! Left clicking gives you a quick throw, with a predefined amount of force. Holding right click will charge your throw, it takes time but you'll be able to throw up to three times as far! You'll see this charging in your XP bar. If your throw hits a survivor, they will be converted into a snowman. HOWEVER as a Snowman you only get ONE Snowball, so use it wisely! If you miss, you'll have to run and fetch the Snowball by walking over it, or wait 5 seconds and it will come back to you automatically.

    The Starting Snowman has the ability to track players every 30 seconds (by pressing the swap hands key), which the other Snowmen can see to hunt down the Survivors! If the Snowmen don't convert all the Survivors before the timer ends, they will explode and lose!​

    When playing as a survivor, after 30 seconds of being released, you will notice there are powerups scattered around the arena which help you run, leap and teleport away from the Snowmen. Some powerups also allow Survivors to stun and gravity explode the Snowmen, as well as trick them with decoy survivors.



    A Survivor collecting powerups.

    Speed boost – Gives you extra speed for 10 seconds.
    Shield – Gives you a shield that protects any snowball hit (lasts 15 seconds).
    Leap – Leaps you forward.
    Fireballs – Gives you 3 fireballs that will give Snowmen blindness and slowness for 5 seconds.
    Blink – Teleports where you are looking.
    Jump Boost – Gives you jump boost for 15 seconds.
    Snowman stabber – Stuns a Snowman for 10 seconds making them unable to move or shoot.
    Gravity explosive – Takes 1 second to charge up after use and causes an explosion that will shoot nearby Snowmen and snowballs to fly away from you.
    Instant wall – Builds a brick wall in front of you in 2 seconds.
    Decoy – Creates a clone of yourself that will last either 30 seconds or until decoy gets hit with a snowball. When decoy is alive you are completely invisible.

    If you're wondering how stats work in Snowman Survival, that's simple! You collect Medals. At the end of the game, both of the Snowmen and Survivors can earn "Snowman Survival Medals". You'll get reward for the following actions (you'll also earn some points for them):
    - Every 30 seconds you are alive as a Survivor
    - Converting a Survivor into a Snowman as a Snowman
    - Stunning a Snowman as a Survivor
    - Staying alive as a Survivor the whole game
