Happy Happy Krampusnacht, a holiday platformer made for the Winter Wizard jam, has you playing the evil helper of Santa Claus and knocking out children with a stick then deciding what to do with the naughty and nice ones.
Have you ever wondered what happened to the naughty children at Christmas time? They go to work in Santa’s coal mine of course! You play as Krampus, Santa’s dark helper, who is looking to return the good kids home so they do not get too cold and the naughty kids to the coal mine.
You must whack children around with your stick over and over until they faint. Once they have fainted, you can pick up the green hooded nice children and bring them home. As for the red hooded naughty children, you must banish them to work in Santa’s mine for eternity. You only have a limited amount of time, so you must get as many children as possible. Bringing a child to where they belong will increase your time, but these kids are fast. They are afraid of your stick and monster-esque demeanor. You must corner them to hit them with your stick!
It’s a fun game, that adds a wicket twist to the festive frivolity. And remember – he’s checking his list, he’s checking it twice, when Krampusnacht is around you’d better be nice! Merry Christmas!
Note: We’d recommend checking out the controls before playing
