Short game made with incredibly high quality, very cute!
This was a lovely game to play over the xmas period!
This was perfect for the Christmas season and I'm so happy I played this game. It was very cute and really well made. Great job to everyone involved in this development process, and thank you. I had a lot of fun playing. Game starts at 18:57.
Such a cute and perfect game to upload for Christmas! This was done really well and surprised me quite a bit, loved it!
Loved your game! It was so fun and cute, The story was great and i think it was all done really well. I had an amazing time playing it!
First of all, I absolutely love penguins so to have a Christmas game focusing on a baby penguin was amazing. Second of all, this was one of the best Christmas games that I've experienced in a long time; great music, narration, and graphics. Thank you so much for making this game! Happy holidays! 🐧
is there a way to claim the game? i can't download it at the moment
Such a cute story, it was so heart warming. 100% would recommend playing! <3
anyone know what narrator saying?
my home language is not english so
can anyone put what narrtor saying?
P.S. The game is really really cute ever i played
A heart warming game that lasts around 10 minutes.
Such a heart warming little game, kudo's for the perfect storytelling in poem mode. This game breathes "Christmas"!
Could you explain how you did the snow effect on the ground? Are you using Unity? Thanks! Lovely effect!
Hey Retro! The game was made in UE4. The snow deformation was made using a scene capture and render targets. Here's a great article by Tommy Tran that'll get you started: https://www.raywenderlich.com/5760-creating-snow-trails-in-unreal-engine-4
The most wholesome game I've ever played.
Thank you so much for making it!
A beautiful game. The narration is amazing.
Pros and cons are down below) Check out my vid here (likes and subs are highly appreciated)):
1. This game is so very cute! Adorable! The environment, the story, and the animations are just so well done and so wholesome! Really enjoyed playing the game.
2. Everything rhymes! And the voice is soothing. I absolutely loved listening to the story!
1. It would be cool id the snowman could get mad if the penguin would mess up their face! Maybe it would be so cool if the game would have an alternative path for being a "bad penguin". Though, I understand that it would require a lot more work. Still, I'm pretty sure the game would turn out to be great!
The cutest game I played in a long time, great job! Keep up the amazing work))
Hope my feedback was useful!
an absolutely wonderful little game!!! loved it so much I don't even know what to begin with. the whole setting - the cute baby penguin, the lighting, the snow and the fact we leave traces in it (I drew a dick when I discovered it. was super happy. isn't there a theory that if a player finds out they're able to draw, they'll instantly draw a dick?)... everything is heartwarming. but what got to me the most was the narration. it felt like i was inside of a bedtime fairytale my mom used to read to me when I was a kid. thank you for making such a sweet game.
there are just two issues I would like to highlight: I have a pretty powerful PC, not super high-end but okay for high settings in many games (16 gb ram, intel core i7, and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4096 mb memory). i was surprised when I saw FPS dropping. it went higher at some point, but the playing process didn't feel smooth. and it made my laptop to warm up to... i didn't measure how much, but hey, not every demanding AAA title makes it this hot.
the other issue is that the narrator's voice at some points was drowning (a bit) in music. must be something with mixing, i guess? I am not a native English speaker, and I guess it wouldn't be hard for a native to retrieve some words lost in music, but to me it was something of an additional, though in no way exhausting, challenge. it didn't spoil my overall impression.
I get this weird bug where the camera hovers over the book without the start and exit buttons. Is there a fix?
This reminded me of the 1960s xmas cartoons (Rudolph and Frost) where they open a book to tell a story with animations. Absolutely loved it. Some of the best voice acting I've heard on Itch. Such a great short game. Great short story, great classic art style and again the voice acting can't express that enough. definitely gained a follower.
I gave it a go :)
Sorry you encountered the bug where the logo doesn't fully disappear. Just uploaded a new build where that no longer should be an issue. Thanks for playing the game!
Heyo! I have a YouTube series where I play multiple itch.io games in one video and this was the last one on my list in todays video! This game was SO CUTE I literally couldn't make myself edit any of it out at all! I just let it play through because it was an adorable experience and I just gotta say awesome job! The narrating and story was perfect!

An awesome cozy, cute and a short game.

Great work feliz navidad, i loved the game

Hiii, I've made a video about the game and just wanted to share it here, but also I wanted to say that this is an amazing idea.The game it self could be a little bit more optimized but appart from that it's piece of art, pretty visuals and voice acting.
Beautiful game. Loved playing it. Great voice acting.
Nice lil Xmas game. Really enjoyed it. Keep up the amazing work.
Congratulations to the team! This is a very beautiful game. Merry Christmas!!
This is a beautiful game. The penguin is so cute. Congrats for your work.
I really liked the game! I hope through this we can reach more people. I included the donation link in the video and mentioned about the good cause at the end. I'll be making my $10 donation today :) No child should go hungry!
Absolutely adorable, well written and excellent music.
aren't we all just nearsighted gnomes in the snow? 10/10
