Description

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight.
Walking in a winter wonderland.


Christmas is drawing ever-closer and for most of us that means music is in the air. From catchy poppy songs about raindeer, to slow ballads about the birth of a King, we've many a tune that is lighting up our lives and, in some cases, driving us insane.

So let's make the most of the Seasonal tunes! Gammak go!



RULES
- You have until the 1st of January to make a short game, no longer than an hour of gameplay, no shorter than 5 minutes.
- You may start as soon as you sign up.
- The game made must be based on at least one Christmas song and it must be apparent which song this is.
- The game must fit the rules of the site.


Any song on this list will count. If you have a song in mind that isn't on this list, post a comment with a link and a staff member will check to see if it fits or not.

Submit the game to this event page. If you want to make a gamepage for it, go ahead, but you don't need one, and if you do make one it most likely won't be accepted until after the event ends.

At the end of the event, you'll get a 100MS badge in your stocking for making a full game for the event! If you submit a demo, you'll get 50MS!

i see you, rules. i see you
So... a game that is a music video...

Or a game about someone who goes through life and every year they give away their heart to someone and fucks it up. But every year is still optimistic and thinks that this year it'll go to someone special.
Dead Dead Reindeer coming right up.

A game that lasts between 5 and 60 minutes? Impossible! sign me up!
Seriously debating this. If only I wasn't working overtime every day until after Christmas. I'd love to do a film noir detective game investigating a hit and run involving a grandmother and a reindeer. Or a courtroom simulation regarding a jolly old stalker who watches people in their sleep.

Hmm...

I always imagined a 1984 type story where you better watch out and you better not pout. He knows. He always knows.
It's time to explore the capabilities of SDL2 sound libraries.
If someone would like some help, I can provide sprites, tiles, writing, mapping and events. I'm interested but don't really have enough of an idea to go alone. So feel free to dm me if you are interested in teaming up.
I have a game prototype made, I am just going to keep refining it now. It is at its heart an arcade game but I want to add some exploration/NPC elements to make it more like an RPG of sorts. Also there are a not insignificant amount of dead reindeer.

Quick question, does the song choice need to be obvious throughout or can it be hinted at and then made more explicit by the end? Clearly meant to be short games so I'm hoping the latter is fine
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

Quick update to this event: If you create a game page, it probably won't be accepted until after the event is over. You can totally do it, but don't wait on it, or expect it to be up in time for Christmas.

Considering that you don't need a game page to submit a game for the event, this shouldn't be a big deal to anyone, but I just wanted to make people aware.

If we submit now though we might just get it approved by Christmas 2022.
Going to make a game for jingle bells but it is Jingle Bells Batman smells, I will need some help from someone else.
I am GUARANTEED not to participate but someone should use this song:
Woop! Got ours done in time for ye olde holidays.

Woop, rushed out a release for Christmas Day! It's unpolished and dirty and also very clunky but here we go. Live high scores at HBGames (soon on RMN).
