A downloadable game for Windows

To show my appreciation to you for checking out this game page, I got you a present! To claim your gift, just download and play this game. A lot of care went into wrapping it up.

WASD to move. Mouse for camera. SPACE to jump. Hold SHIFT to run. Left mouse button for miscellaneous actions.

Created for the Extra Credits Holiday Jam. Since the jam, I fixed a few bugs, but the puzzles are all the same. Both the jam version and the fixed version are available for download.

A good little game to play during the Christmas holidays! Thank you for this beautiful little gift. :)

Hey there!

I loved your game and wanted to ask if you used an asset for your first person controller, i really like it and could use on myself. Thanks!

Thank you for playing! That's just the controller from Unity's Standard Assets. I only modified it slightly to allow a trampoline auto-jump, and then I created an additional script for things like picking up objects.

Cool, I will check that asset out then.

Just fyi, if you ever need a 3d model, I am a Blender artist and would be happy to create something for you (no charge, of course)

Really lovely game for christmas ;) loved the idea behind it and the jokes! 

I'm a little late on this, but thanks for playing and recording my game. It was a great video! If you are looking for more puzzle games to play, you might enjoy the other game I recently published, Fail to Win. It has a similar kind of humor, but it's a lot more polished: https://tykenn.itch.io/fail-to-win-chapter-1

Perfect game for Christmas!

Awesome short game, i loved it all the way it was simple yet engaging, Great Job!!

I really enjoyed this game. Everything about it was just amazing. It really got me back into the Christmas spirit.

A really fun and short game, got me in the christmasy mood, Happy Holidays all 

Really fun game! I really enjoyed doing different things to open the presents!

Thanks for playing! Historically, monarchs would sometimes give white elephants as gifts which, while a great honor to receive, were very impractical and hard to get rid of. Eventually, the term "white elephant" came to refer to any gift that was expensive but also disappointing. Now many people have a white elephant gift exchange around Christmas time, so it seemed like a good name for an absurdly wrapped Christmas present that is a bit anticlimactic.

Loved it! I am very glad that my trashy computer can run it! Puzzles were easy and simple! Thanks! Keep up the good work!

This is THE GREAT GAME. I expected from the game to be like others, but no, I think this is funny and in the style of the Xmas!Great.

I loved this little game. Even if I did get stuck half way through lol. I'm sorry the video came out laggy, the game worked just fine. 

Thank you for playing my game! It's exciting to see so many people record playthroughs.

Man, I've watched Extra Credits playing this and tried myself. Its really cool and I honest think that if you polish this game and make more puzzles, it could be a hit. Good luck!

I'm glad you like it! Jam rules won't let me update it until after Christmas, so you likely won't see much more of it unless I make a sequel for next Christmas. In the meantime, I'm working on another puzzle-platformer called Fail to Win (Respawn-as-teleporter type of thing). It's in a similar style, but better-looking and not Christmas, and I'll release the demo soon.

This was pretty cool. Played really well and you just had to get to the end and open that present to see what was inside. Really nice game... :)

Thanks for playing and for making this walkthrough! I made some small updates since you recorded this. The game still plays out the same, but I fixed access to a certain Easter egg, and controlling the wood box is a bit easier.
