This is the Chistmas remake of my prior game, Scramble The Eggs. It is now very merry and such. Please enjoy.

WASD / Arrow keys: move up, left, right, and down
Shift / Spacebar : action key. mostly used to progress through screens, might have a surprise or two

MORE INFO:
Eventually, grand happiness is found in the year 2116.

STORY EXCERPT:

ELF #588 PLEASE STEP INTO THE EGGNOG ROOM

The line ahead of you shifts by the width, length, and height of a single stock elf.

COUNTDOWN INITIATED

It is in these little gaps of time afforded to you by the icy factory overseers that rumours spread through the elfen chain.

10... 9... 8... 7...

The sound of a gentle breeze, as your friends keep their breath underheard from nosy managers:

"Did you hear about unfortunate #456? She managed to scramble only two litres of eggnog!"

You did hear that. You've heard it every year for 23 years, a lie meant to strike fear in elves who start to question their work ethic.

6... 5... 4... 3...

"I'm not sure if I believe that more or less than what #585 told me about #584!"

You ask down the line what #602 was told about #584 from #585, curious as to how you missed this tidbit earlier.

2... 1... 0...

"No way! it's impossible to scramble 45 litres of eggnog in so short a-"

Your reply is cut short by the timer, in response to running out of digits, releasing another aural blare.

EGGNOG SCRAMBLING COMMENCES NOW

Download the game to read the rest of The Story dot html, as well as to conclude the narrative by YOURSELF by controlling the fate of the elves!

EXTRA NOTES:
Yes I submitted this as a gift for myself in a secret santa event I did not formally enter, because I knew I would not be up to making something for somebody else, but also I couldn't think of a better gift to ask for than remaking one of my own games for the season (if a bit late).

An excellent re-imagining for the occasion, mno! :)

I'm glad you liked it!! I haven't heard of that Santa Claus movie before but it does sound like a good, retroactive inspiration ;) I am pleased to have essentially made the Klik'n'Play version of Bladerunner, too.
