"Please buy a matchstick! In the night of Christmas Eve when everyone shares the happiest moment with family, a little girl stands on the street with a bucket of matchsticks. She has no choice but needs to sell them out or she will died in the storm."


The Little Match Girl is a 2D strategy game that I made with my friend Peiyu Ling on Ludum Dare 46, a 72 hours game jam. The theme is "Keep it alive". Player needs to fire the matchsticks in the night or find some warm points to keep the little girl alive in the meantime sells out the matchsticks to earn enough money to get enough matchsticks supply to survive longer.

The Little Match Girl

Just like what Hans Andersen described his fairy tale the little match girl is a poor child that needs to sell her matchsticks in the cold storm Christmas Eve. She is pure, innocent but also very delicate. If she cannot sell these matchsticks what wait for her is the destined death.
