Scramble The Eggnog (for mno)

horrible chistmas music playing.png

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
Escape: quit game

2018 UPDATE:
You can now play the game in fullscreen, with a custom-made EXE, as well as hear the full soundtrack in the music folder.



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


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.


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!

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).

All was quiet, thanks to your diet.
But in the middle of the night,
suddenly you had a fright!
The sleigh bells were ringing,
but the fireplace was not singing.
What could it be, but the Chistmas set free?

TWO WAYS TO PLAY! 2) Run the Old School For Schools Edition in the zip file to play it- assuming you are on a computer that can understand such old dog tricks! Z) open "STOCKRUEHTML5.html" to the web browser to play the STOCKRUE: DAWN OF CHISTMAS [PRO EDITION]! Features: real time sound play, advanced music orchestration, and a suspicious lack of candy canes.

Let the story commence...

They all know about the season for the gift aquiring (all 128 days of it) - but do they know the plights of the gift wranglers? Only CANDELBRA CANNY can give a glimpse into the unglimpsed world of gift wrapping in the tertiary Northwest Pole - where reporters and camera holders are loathe to bother trekking towards. Plus, the frigid DR. PENG (short for DREADFUL PENG) - controls the placement of en-dashes as well as the distribution of gifts...

Wrap, rip, plant, send, open, enjoy. The process of gifting. But mysteries lie beneath this surface of seeming simplicity... And who can say what they are? All the people know is that they order their gifts during their given 128 days, and on the dawn of Chistmas they find them under their festive plum pile! Nobody can be displeased at this situation, for signs of displeasure might mean you find your teeth getting inside only coal as you bite into your plump plum pie.

But what is in a gift? The real question is what CAN'T be, and lies is what. Only the truth can be found inside a gift - and all the truth is found inside gifts. Be careful what you wish for, because you certainly will get it, like it or not. If you inquire too much into what goes into getting you the truth, maybe this Chistmas in your gift you'll find... yourself!

Before you continue, did you know? There are only 128 gifts available. One for each day of Chistmas. It would be wrong for there to be more.

Clearly, the penguins don't do the work around here. They just make sure it happens. Nobody knows how, but it is likely that the penguins keep it this way. Some say that we are just creating a mass projection conciousness towards the penguins and our psychic bonds and need to believe in something (anything) so badly have created an otherworldly force - or farce. Some people also say the moon is made out of penguins and that they will come down to collect for their loan to us, in the only way they know how: through the beak.

Whatever horse you hold on to to get a pick of your precious plums, the penguins are here and they are part of Chistmas. Trying to challenege this is an affront to the well-meaning Chistmas spirit inside every penguin - and maybe every person too!

Hold on, did that penguin just say something to CANDELBRA CANNY? Or - to you? Does the difference really matter?

A giant statue of their head commemorates their existance. Sometimes penguins seem to dance to it, or possibly mock it. Nobody knows which DREADFUL PENG would prefer, or if those are even the options and opinions PENG has about their penguin actors/decriers. That about sums up what is understood of PENG's thoughts, actions, rationale: nothing. Sure, there's a press release every now and then, but more than two of them has been covered in turpines (the favourite fish of the penguins of the NorthEast Fifth Pole Sub-Sector 49: AlphaAelphElf - coincidentally the vacation resort of PENG!). It can be deduced from this simple fact, quite undeniable really, that DREADFUL PENG has not ever written a word we have thought to be from their hand! Rather, they dictate their messages to the outside world through the medium of penguin pennship. Read between the lines, do the math, circle the x's, dot the q's, and think for yourself for once. Don't you see how - ridiculous this is? And we let DREADFUL PENG run amok - unchecked - with - so - much power over - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Take over their role, the flame of the spirit of Chistmas. It is up to them (you!) to contain the unruly gifts, as DR. PENG unleashes them into the world (as far as the 3rd NW Pole is the world). It is up to their abilities - namely, demanding more rights (recieved in the form of more gifts to wrap mostly), transmogrifying the self (but not the spirit) into a candy cane with nice blue highlights, as well as summoning another CANNY from another timeline (when the boss DR. PENG is not looking). CANNY is likely the only living gift wrapper today, so they have a lot of work cut out for them!

Thankfully you are on the scene now. Help guide CANDELBRA CANNY with the ARROW KEYS and the SHIFT KEYS towards the gifts to bring forth more into the world. When two gifts collide, they will become happy together and be able to be sent out to a union of plums (which they will place themselves under to be discovered on the dawn of Chistmas). Gifts cannot be happy by themselves... and yet the icy DR. PENG refuses to make things simple for you! Thankfully, by aligning yourself with a gift you will have a platform for CANNY to demand another gift to be brought into their ice world. Congratulations on your socialist progess! Don't forget to try to recruit more workers to join your growing Union - by demolishing every gift (through the art of wrapping or noise) known to reason. But DR. PENG always has more more for you to wrap up...

Penguins roam the gardens in the distance, restricted access to visitors. Not that there have been any since... about 576 Chistmas times past. There were penguins here before anything else, and eventually everything will be only pengins. Nothing but penguins, and just the penguins. Even DR. PENG must face that they will be overrun by their farm of penguins sooner or later. The penguins say they hold many mysteries, past and passed down their descendents for spans of time that cannot be understood by any mortal. But on top of the other flipper, nobody can communicate with the penguins, and it is rumoured that even the self-proclaimed/named & cool cat DR. - PENG is unable to do so! So how can we know for sure that we have any thing about them written down that is true, in the slightest? Absolutely not.

But there's more to the NW3P than the penguins that cover every possible inch visible from the sky, or even space. Those gifts have to be wrapped up somewhere - all 128 of them! Who better to do it, than the penguins? Oh! But of course, they are all in managerial positions. Such is deserved of their old nature. We all know every thing capable of true thought naturally leads to an agressive, nasty, brutish, capitalist society.
