Watch "i became a MARSHMALLOW!" on YouTube

Super cute video watching 24/7!!!This game is so FREAKING CUTE!!!!

This game is so cute when youtubers play it.I really love the dressy gowns how do the marshmellows make sure they don't melt?The gameplay is ok.the game is so FREAKING CUTE!!!!MAKE MORE CUTE GAME LIKE THAT.I really love the cheeks they are redish pink.

Hey itch.io I was wondering if you could make the Marshmellow day spa available on android and apple that would be amazing!!!

hi

Simple and adorable concept! I really enjoyed this as a game I could fall back on to relax. Lovely music and great artwork as well! Very well made! =D

(+2)

This game is amazingly adorable. Took me a bit to figure out everything since I like going blindly into games lately. I love graphics, I loved gameplay, played a few more times then shown. Your talent shows and I honestly can not wait for whatever you may come up with in the future. I had a hard time finding the cream(is a sentence I never thought I would type or say).


Thank you for playing our game and making this video!! :D we are definitely looking at making the cream messaging clearer in the new version! 

(+1)

Well by this point I'm sure everybody knows the score! It's cute, it's adorable, it's equal-parts relaxing and anxiety-inducing and it's easily one of the best little gems I've come across here on itch!

With such a wealth of talent working on this project I'm not at all surprised that this game came out so good, and after my initial attempt at playing the game (whereupon Mikey neglected to check the controls or indeed the aims of what he was meant to be doing) I really felt like I got into the swing of things pretty quickly and started trying to beat my own high score over and over again.

It's a lovely little game to while away a few minutes (or hours, depending on how much free time one has on one's hands), and it's immensely playable! For the record, I still haven't managed to score more than 5000, so anyone that manages that deserves a lovely cup of hot chocolate with all the trimmings... I can hear distant marshmallow screams in the distance!

You're all awesomely amazing, and please do keep creating awesomely amazing things! Keep up the awesomely amazing work =)

(+1)

Thank you so much for the video and support mikey, glad you enjoyed!  We can't wait to show you what we have lined up for these marshmallows!

This game is SO FREAKING ADORABLE! Who knew making hot chocolate could be such a relaxing experience? The cream and gingerbread weren't very obvious to find, so maybe a bigger indicator could help those that need these items. Other than that, I had such a fun time! Thanks you for taking the time to create this!
(+1)

Thank you for the video Erin, we are happy you enjoyed our game!! For the final version of the game were definitely gonna look at making the cream and gingerbread messaging clear!

Hey there! I had such a fun time playing your game. =D I see there are a lot of let's plays on this game already, so I hope you don't mind one more. ^^;; 

This game had fantastic simple mechanics and the lack of a slide at the end of the marshmallow's jump added to the difficulty because too often in platformers are you forced to compensate for it. I also really enjoyed the whimsy of the whole environment. If you ever continue to do work on this or develop it into something bigger, I would love to play it again! More levels, new ingredients, and the like would be so much fun to play! Thanks for the awesome times =D

Thanks for enjoying the game, it means a lot that you liked it and want to see more! Thanks for showing us the video, we love seeing people play our game :D

It was such a blast to play! Keep up the awesome work =D

Hey I was wondering if your gonna come out with a Mac version ever cause in my house  I don't have any Pc computers

(1 edit) (+1)

For young children, it would be good to restrict the camera-stick Y-axis: my kids end up stuck in a top-down view, or staring up the poor marshmellow's butt:) I think a fixed roughly over-the-shoulder view is probably fine, maybe a bit able to look up to see those high shelves.

(+1)

Hey RafiRomero,
Thanks so much for playing our game :D! That seems strange that the camera is getting stuck, we haven't been able to recreate that.  You can email us at marshmellowdayspa@gmail.com and we will try to get it sorted!! 

(+2)

Hi Maeve,

Thanks for your reply, and sorry for my confusing post: there is no camera bug in your lovely game. My 3-year-old can usually have fun playing, but lacks the skill to control the camera Y-axis, and especially ends up getting himself stuck with it pointing up at the marshmellow's bottom! I can reset the camera for him with the stick, but he can't figure out that this is what he needs to do.

My wife somewhat has the same problem, as she's not really played 3D games and 3rd-person camera controls just aren't intuitive to her (better than 1st person, however). It doesn't really need fixing, it was just feedback, maybe for whatever you make next.

Ahh understood! We will take note of that feedback then. Happy you and your family are playing! :D

Simple, Fun and cute! I made a review in spanish.

Thank you for enjoying the game and taking the time to record a video review! :D

(+1)

Such an adorable game! I'd been following a few of the creators work for awhile now on twitter and I was thrilled to discover this adorable game! I had a blast playing it, and jumping all over the place collecting ingredients! I only wish I could have played for longer without restarting. If you get a chance to check out my gameplay of the game I'd really appreciate it! Keep up the adorable and great work! 

SO SIMPLE BUT SO FUN XDXDXD

Thanks playing our game and for the video!! the edits were great haha :D

(+2)

This game was so flippin cute I could hardly stand it! I loved everything from the character models to the music to the design of the spa. Very creative and well done! I look forward to seeing what else this developer creates in the future. If you want to see what my play through was like you can click the link below. 

Thank you so much for playing our game Tyler! Glad you enjoyed it :D

i cant download how do u play!?!?!? IT LOOKS SO CUTE BUT I CANT PLAY !?!?!

Hey puppylover! 

If you have downloaded it from the Itch.io website (this page), the file is downloaded is a "zip file",  right click and press extract it, then run (double click) "WinterJam".

You can alternatively download it from the Itch.io app and run it easily.

This is a game that only runs on PC for now, not mac!

I saw this on RockPaperShotgun, it is just lovely, a very nice happy-feeling game:)

Is there a way to invert the Y-Axis?

I'd love to put this on my son's tablet for him. If you think it will run (Linx Vision 8: Intel Atom x5-Z8300, 2 GB RAM Intel Integrated Graphics, it used to run Slime Rancher OK), any chance of a 32-bit build?

I also found it hard to find the cream:) Although perhaps that's intentional:)

I saw you said "Apple doesn't let us build for their platform unless we own a Mac". I own an old Mac:) I'm a professional developer (Chaos Reborn (Unity), Black Powder \\ Red Earth (SDL) - so, no Unreal experience), happy to help for free if you want and if I can:)

Finally, just wow at producing this in 3 days!

Took me a while to find the cream but it was in my pants all along. Haha but for real that was a lot of fun! The controls felt nice and everything was cute.

(+1)

Very cute game that made me stress out a lot more than I thought I would. The mechanics works good and the game overall has a nice feeling to it. 

Good job :D

Very charming little game, played it as part of my 3 random games :D!

I LOVE THIS GAME! I had so much fun playing it and would have loved it even more if the challenges got increasingly difficult (not that I completed all 4 tubs anyway) but I would love to see this game start off really simple, oh hey just warm water, milk, and chocolate, then start adding in all the toppings of cherry and cream. I would have loved it to start expanding to a bigger kitchen with more platforms to jump on and more ingredients! I think this could totally be a longer game and I would really love to see that! The only trouble I had with this game was I was so upset when I couldn't press the water again to fill the tubs!!! I must have screwed up almost every single time! 😂😂😂 But your game starts at 2:29! 🖤

(+1)

I can tell your form the State's i hope i'm right in saying that anyway...we say 

Marshmallow with an (A) instead of an (E)..but apart from that it was an awesome game. When i did look back through my video i did noticed the penalty for falling down the hole nice touch.     

(+2)

"Mellow" is a play on words :D cause we hope you all mellow out while playing this game!
Thank you so much for playing our game, glad you enjoyed it and took the time to make a video!!

I cant download it

The download link is on the page :)

How do I get on the game?And is it multiplayer?

(+1)(-1)

Super cute and I'm glad it's getting so much attention. Although my girlfriend wanted to know why the marshmallows wanted to kill themselves!??! (Now that I played it, I'll have to show her that SOME of them prefer to keep the water only lukewarm...)

I recorded my playthru (in-game sound only):

My first playthru, where I had no idea what I'm doing, is also here.

Just a few thoughts:

It's incredibly cute, which is huge.

It took me a while to realize that the different colors meant different demands. I think each zone could be colored a little more distinctively. You could really get crazy and do totally different themes. But I'd avoid using that red berry motif for the background of each one - since there is a red tub, I kept thinking the one with the red berries on the wall was red. But it's not!

I also didn't realize there would be MORE customers lining up immediately after. I was planning on getting all 4 done, then watching the fruits of my labor! Some cute animation would be a nice reward. I'd love to be able to watch the mallows jump in, and let me watch them (creepy?) ... heh.  .... but they just disappear!

anyway, awesome work, especially for a game jam, it got me to tell my girlfriend about it which is rare and awesome!

(+1)

Thanks for playing it and enjoying it so much, also for the feedback, we really appreciate it! Regarding watching the Marshmellows, next time when you ring the bell, maybe go closer to the tub, you might see the Marshmellows relaxing in the tub having a great time, they dont disappear! ;)

Cute marshmallows, but sooooo demanding. 

Played through the game a few times (loved it btw), controls were nice and easy and gameplay was fun. The looks of the game are amazing, love the cute style and Marshmallows :)

I have a few notes from my playthrough.
- In ultrawide the main menu screen doesn't fit the screen very well
- You can skip the whole floating platform section by just going around on the right by jumping onto the little fence
- It took me a few plays to find the gingerbread and cream, might be good to add some signage to them, perhaps also put them in the same room as the cherries as the toppings are the only things that are spread into multiple rooms.
- When in indle and holding something the object you are holding doesn't bob up and down with the character, might be something to add just to give a little more immersion
- The pause menu as the same issue as main menu
- You might want to add it so that the mouse resets to centre screen position whenever moved so that if you have multiple monitors it doesn't end up that your mouse goes into your other monitors (which means if you click it pauses the game)
- Possibly giving more time when you finish a bath as it doesn't seem that you can do more than 12 unless you get lucky and have lots of 3 part baths in which case you might manage 16

Those are my thoughts on the game anyway :) loved it and looking forward to seeing future updates

it looks like an amazing and cute game to play, but i am not exactly the best at computers and i could not download it on my windows mac, i read the help section thing but unfortunately it was not any help. please someone help me. x
