That is one seriously disturbed Santa.

It takes alot of trial and, error to find out where you are suppose to go. I like the options of being able to change which view you want to be in. Also enjoyed you could changed it to vhs or, laser disc! Awsome little features!  I wish there was a mini map as, I get lost easy and, would have helped a tad. That's probably what makes the game more adventureous though!

I'll investigate this. Have you tried 1st person mode by pressing F7?

This game is awesome!  Thank you for making this game! 

Thank you!

You are welcome! :)

Had a lot of fun trying out the demo! Found a couple bugs like invincibility and some stuck points, but it was all enjoyable nonetheless. Never could find that last gem though! Compiled a bit of my time playing it here:

Thanks for playing! Yes invincibility was a problem in the last version, but it's been fixed in 0.1.4

I'll check out the video for the stuck points

OMFG A NEW GAME ???????????????????????

OH SHIT I SHOULD PLAY IT RIGHT NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check out the latest version of POBTS, 0.1.4 which rectifies some bugs and issues. Future updates will be posted as I become aware of things that need fixing.

SOMEHOW CANT START THE GAME PROPERLY IT ALWAYS SHOWS ME A FIGURE FROM ABOVE :(

Please email me and I'll try to figure out what the problem is. ben [at] puppetcombo.com

I have the exact same problem, can't play the game at all :( Did you solve it somehow?

This game is very rough. I like the idea of a bloodthirsty zombie-esk Santa on a murdering spree but that jumping mechanic is BRUTAL!


It's been updated. Version 0.1.4 should fix the issues

Made a Part 2! ;3

MORE SCREAMS OF TERRROR AT SANTA THE KOOL-AID GUY

Hi, I made a video of your game! I was in love with Power Drill Massacre, even though I couldn't play it for long because it increased my risk of a heart attack :p But I'm glad you're still making games and released this one! I'll be careful this time! I was also even considering buying one of your shirts too!

Part 2 :D Thank you anyone for watching! It means as lot!

(Edited 1 time)

I think something is wrong with santa ( ⚆ _ ⚆ )(`〇Д〇)(((φ(◎ロ◎;)φ)

Excited to play more in part 2!

This game was pretty fun.  I would like to see it when this game is completed.  I hope you enjoy my video and I hope the game goes the way that you want it to.

it was a good one!

Just played the demo. I love the entire theme and aesthetic. It feels like a Christmas PS1 Silent Hill Remix.  Keep up the good work!

Thanks !!!

This game was amazing! Can't wait for the full release! :D

I feel like when you escaped him from falling off, I think thats a bug. Oh well.

(+1)

Had a blast! Gonna upload it in two parts :P

(+1)

Wish there was more in the demo D; But, the demo did its job!

Great video! Thanks for playing (btw Santa can follow you up on the rooftops)

That's pretty crazy how relentless he is then! Though I don't think he's brutal enough in my opinion! Haha.

I got an "invalid game key" error after the Paypal transfer, don't know what that's about. Good thing there's a free download option too I guess lol

Damn, that strange. Sorry for your trouble. The full version isn't complete yet, but I'll definitely send a working key when it is

(+1)

No problem, I just got a notification with a download link, it's probably nothing.

 Anyway I'm loving the game so far, it's a clear improvement from your previous works but keeping all the atmosphere and retro charm intact. Sound design is great, it fits the game's aesthetic perfectly and overall makes the experience super immersive. Perhaps the intended path through the map could be marked in a more clear way, took me a while to realize I was supposed to jump over that one chasm...but then again there's a blizzard going on so it's understandable. I think my biggest gripe here is not being able to control the character with the arrow keys, but that's just because I'm left handed and it's not that bad.

So like I said, I love this game already and can't wait for future updates. I find your work super inspiring and hope you can keep making more stuff like this in the future. Happy new year!

Thanks for the feedback! I'll keep it in mind for the full game. I'll definitely add arrow key controls. Glad you're enjoying so far :). Happy Holidays / New year!

Arrow key movement has been added!

Whoa that was quick! Thanks a lot guys! :D

I don't have a trailer finished yet, but here's some Phucat gameplay
