Apparently it's the season of publishing student game projects and that means we get some unique and generally adorable offerings for free. One of these games, developed at SMU Guildhall, is a racing game where players play as color-changing penguins, racing their way down icy slopes on their bellies and painting the ice as they go.

For as silly as it may sound, Snowpainters offers all kinds of features, including three customizable penguin "classes", color-change mechanics that allow players to boost their speed, and a selection of tracks to race on. The penguin classes include the light and fast Rockhopper, a heavy and more controlled Emperor, and a generally more balanced Adélie. And, because this is a serious game... there are hats.

As for the tracks, players can race through the North Pole, ice caves, or a glacier. The game also offers a single-player tutorial mode in addition to the up-to 8-person multiplayer.

Snowpainters is available to download via Steam now.
