A downloadable game for Windows

Don't you just hate waiting for your presents until Christmas day? The Spirit of Receiving sure does! Take control of presents and ensure they make it to their intended recipient, avoiding the watchful gaze of parents, up late at night making Christmas preparations.

This game was made in one week for the Awful Holiday Jam, with the theme of "Festive Spirits." I handled the code and sound, while the artwork was done by megane. The game's a bit janky, but I had a lot of fun making it, and I hope you'll enjoy playing it!

Please be sure to extract the files proper-like, GMS2 can get a bit weird if you just drag the .exe out of the .zip.

gave it go

could you check my gameplay? i think i found some bug

I’ve heard about this bug from others,  but this is the first time I’ve seen it. Thanks for the footage, and I’m sorry the game became unplayable!

will you update this game?

Likely not, sorry to say. I'd prefer to move on from this game, since I wasn't super happy with its design.
