It's winter. Let's go sledding. Ride the slope until you stop or crash.


  • x/z - confirm
  • arrow keys - you can turn your sled in the air to pull of some sweet tricks

This is not a game in the traditional sense. There is no score or goal. Just give yourself a minute or two to unwind and enjoy the ride. Happy Holidays!

But what does Sanki mean?

"Sanki" is Polish for "sledding". I grew up in a high-rise suburb of Warsaw. We used to have a lot of snow in winter. Some of my most cherished childhood memories are about going sledding with my friends and family. It was something that brought the entire community together just to have fun and spend time with each other. For some reason this has stuck with me more than the actual Christmas celebrations. It was the inspiration for this little project.

Hallo Krystian! Ich bin Lehrbeauftragter an der Universität Köln und habe in meiner Dissertation zu deinem Spiel "Trauma" geschrieben. Nun suche ich verzweifelt nach einer Möglichkeit, dich zu kontaktieren. :) Kannst du mir eine Mailadresse nennen? Du findest mich auch auf Instagram als @digital_stranger_

Hallo. Ich bin unter >>ich (at)<< zu erreichen

I dont know if you knew this , but sanki also means "as if" in turkish

I did not know this. Thanks!

urocza mała gra! <3

very fun



unrestrained winter fun. 10/10 perfect advent calendar trinket

Even though there are no high scores and there is no timer, I feel the need to keep playing again and again. There aren't enough words in my vocabulary to describe how satisfying this game is, and I have a pretty big vocabulary.


Lubię sanki


No fajne są

nice game !

What a nice game! Really brings back some санки memories


the fact that the player just laughs at game over is really sweet, it fits very well with the memories you described under 'But what does Sanki mean?' 

surprisingly addictive too..

Incredible game thank you for making this!  Lots of fun!





Imagine walking back up this hill

Lol true...


It's like Alto's Odyssey and Alto's Adventure, but for browser! This is great!


there was a weird glitch where the hill was straight and went slope once or twice....

pls fix

i will be playing this FOREVER (even in summer lol)


I've been addicted to this game since its launch, probably because of the timing where I met it, it was a very cool experience.

This is a really cozy and cute game! :D

It's like altos adventure I love it

i love it

That was simple and fun.  Another great Pico-8 game.


On my first crash, I laughed at the same time the little character started laughing! Perfectly simple concept to bring a smile to the face :)



Even though, the happy holidays are over, it gave me joy today. =)


Fantastic, and I really love that the little guy starts laughing when the game ends!


This is such an amazing game Krystian. 
The "feel" of the snow, nailing the landings, the music.

Just pure fun - a perfect entry. 👏😊


omg XD this was amazing
