Share The Eggnog

"Learn the true meaning of Babycastles in this 2018 remake of a 2017 remake of a 2012 classic. Do you have what it takes to win the eggnog sharing challenge?"

This is a text file explaining the rules of a physical version of my game, Scramble The Eggnog, originally designed to be presented at the Glorious Trainwrecks x Babycastles event. If you want to see what it's like for yourself at the event, please refrain from reading the rules ahead of time. If you can't attend, or wish to try out the game at your own gathering, please feel free to do so!!

I don't have the ability to playtest this myself, so if anybody sets it up, I'd love to hear how it goes!

Share The Eggnog is intended to be played with mostly strangers, but if you want to play it with people who already know each other, go ahead, it'll probably just be a different experience than intended.

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

CONTROLS:
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.

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

AUTHOR SUPPLEMENTATION:
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).
