It's Christmas Eve, and Lieve has completely forgotten to get gifts for all of her friends! Rather than dare face the nightmare that is shopping on Christmas Eve, Lieve instead embarks into the depths of the Krampulian Abyss in search of its treasures (which, legends say, all make great gifts!)

This is a short action game where you search out presents. But Lieve can't fight, so she has no choice but to flee the monsters she finds. Includes:

  • An underground dungeon to explore!

  • 15 gifts to collect (only ten of which you actually need to beat the game)

  • Done-at-the-last-minute art! (and the characters don't match the in-game art-style at all!)


I wanted to give a gift to RMN this Christmas for being such a wonderful community, so in December of 2014, I started putting this game together (At the last minute, you might say). I hope you enjoy this short, silly adventure!

Difficulty Modes Added!

Now you can play the game on Normal, Easy, or Hard mode! :D

Normal mode is the same as always, but in Easy mode you start out with twice as much life, and there are extra Level Up stars available. In Hard Mode, you only start with two life and there are LESS Level Up stars.

Enemy placement remains the same, but hopefully the difference in Life and power ups will change things up enough. A Christmas present is no fun if you find it too hard to beat, after all. I hope this allows more people to enjoy the game ^_^

Oh this is gorgeous, and so thoughtful Unity.

Though seriously Krampus gets a bad rap, the guy is just punishing the bad children after all, St Nick gets all the kudos.
This is so cute.

e: whoops, just repeated what Liberty said.

Thank you so much, everyone! :D I hope this game turns out fun despite the really short development time! ^_^;;

If Gary Gygax could hear all these bad DnD puns we're making, he'd be rolling in his grave.

I'm usually not too interested in Christmas presents - but how could anyone not like this?

Thanks, NeverSilent!

It's the night of the deadline I set for myself, but I'm unfortunately a little short on the progress. Everything but the endings have been done, though, and I'll finish those up tomorrow, and Red_Nova has kindly offered to help me test the game, which will also speed things up!

Thanks for being patient, everyone! :D

So, how's this coming along? It's the 21st of December where I'm at, so, I'm guessing a time-zone differential is making this come out at... the last minute.

Why did I just pull that joke?

Haha, yeah, I missed the deadline, but I'm real close to being done. It should be out within a day or so. :D

As long as we get it before Christmas it still counts. Don't rush.
No need to rush, Unity!

Take your time! (okay maybe not *that* much time, but... you get my point, right?)

Looking forward to it :D

Thanks, both of you :DDDD

Game's done! ^_^

I gave this a go because unity pointed a candy cane at my head, except that it was actually a Wand of Blasting why not. I found some areas were a bit harder and more frustrating to maneuver for me. Flyers are the absolute worst, and the bane of my existence. Also, outside of the Forgiveness Medallion, I could not remember for the life of me where the locked doors were when I found the appropriate keys. This may just be my sometimes-poor memory than anything else, though.

Frustrations aside, it's a very cute game, with such a heartwarming send-off it's not even funny. The cameos were also nice (though I'm certainly more than slightly biased on this front), but, I can't help to wonder if some of these gift-names are also, somehow, based on various users, or their games. Such as, Unknown Technology (Which might be a bit of a stretch on my part), Mirror of Adonia, Nick's Mantle, and Misstare Mask. Perhaps I'm reading a bit too much into this!

Just like all of your games: Packed full of heart and charm.

That was a great game, unity. And the ending put a big smile on my face that I won't be able to get off anytime soon. Not that I WANT to, mind you.

*applause*

I want to echo this. It was certainly nice to see!

If you're right then given the message on that particular gift, I'm honoured, though I think you're probably reading a little too much into some of them, still why not, it's Christmas after all, fun is supposed to be had...and I did, Unity this was lovely...and now I'm humming sugar plum fairies and it's all your fault.

Call me slow (like, really slow), but, I'm starting to think that unity's a magical girl that fights evil with the powers of love, friendship, and GAMMAKE!
