I'm especially fond of the weary expressions on the elf and Santa on the seesaw/teeter-totter.

I'll post my wish list:

- retro arcade style
- 8-bit or KNP aesthetic
- graphics don't have to be awesome, just understandable
- lots of explosions, but little blood & gore
- shootemups or run & jump
- challenges: best time, best combo, longest run, etc.

The Sekret Santa Klub has been my favourite event out of all of those I've participated in here at Glorious Trainwrecks, and I'm super-happy to be hosting it this year. :D

Dear Santa, I'd like a game about...

* the TV detective Columbo
* Bob Ross
* ordering a teenage mutant ninja turtles style pizza
* a game where you get to be somebody's life coach
* a game that's meant to be played when you are very hiiiiiiiiii
* a speech-making game called SPEECH MAKER
* what happened?
* a game using only the characters that you get when you press shift and then a number, maybe a game in python ascii text something
* yes, more ascii character games
* is Battleship-like a genre?
* a game featuring Young Thug

that's all i got


Well, I would like these things:
Unfinished looking
With horrible controls
Awful, uninspired voice acting
A player who is a rapper
Eminem eating spaghetti
Mixtapes flying across the screen
Terrible 3D models
A 3D game
A child who screams bollocks all the time
A buggy, custom made FPS Controller ( make this in Unity please )
Make the game look like a rushed licensed game
Please make this look as terrible as possible
And make this pretty much the worst thing you could ever think of

5 Wish Lists

Okay, so now we're on our way. Five wish lists is definitely legit. Any other takers?!?!?!

I will post more obnoxious GIFs if you need them...

And my current personal favourite which has very little to do with the Klikmas Holiday:

It has!!! I've been busy

It has!!! I've been busy with school and work, and somewhere along the road, I forgot what was truly important: making videogames as rapidly as possible.

(and friendship, also)

I released my Klikmas game

I released my Klikmas game today, just in time for Christmas. I tried implementing most of these elements in the final game. Here it is:

i uploaded your game, sorry for the one weird image, it just felt right to me for some reason, and it didn't seem too bad

I Like Space Games

All I want from Santa is a new space game. I kind of like MOO and Freelancer and Privateer and stuff like that, but I also just like space. So, let me list this out for you:

Street fighter

Mario Characters

This sounds perfect! Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas!

almost shortest list

i guess i got a sort of fear from secret santa things due to bad memories of it from school and stuff
but im old now so i'll try to move on and enter this time

and or
short adaptation of a famous thing in a real cheap homebrew style
(e.g. i recently saw lego versions
of hitchikers guide and star trek episodes on youtube
or the cardboard version of the new star wars trailer
and there was the clipart versions of game covers some time ago..
so something like that but like with knp klipart or similar
not neccesarily a game .. etc.)

hey, I won't participate

hey, I won't participate this year, I am afraid I won't have time and availabilty to do it, however i'm looking forward to seeing the games :)

Blueberry Soft's picture

My list!, my list!:

- Awkward controls
- Wet and slippery looking things in 3-D games.
- Ice stage and dream stage.
- Riding on dogs.
- Falling / floating / not too much ground.

And a suggestion from the kitten:
- sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssggg ggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg

I think these would combine pretty well if you want to go that route, except for kitten's suggestion--dunno what she was thinking there.
