A puzzle game about being a monster and making snowmen.
It's just before Christmas and two game developers are hunched behind laptops in a nearly-empty café in Coventry. Neither is really committing to doing any work; hey, it's just before Christmas! Besides, they've both just come to the end of long projects and need to wind down. One looks up. So does the other. There's talk of making a festive game; a short, burst of productivity before the seasonal languor. Now, over a year on, we're finally releasing that "quick" Christmas game.
