After the receiving the Theme, the team quickly brainstormed. Thankfully for us, a friend was visiting and gave us the excellent idea of going with a game similar to Tapper.
Here is a screenshot so far.
Here is the pitch for our game. Now we just need to finish it.
You play an Elf who is trying to save Christmas.
Santa has asked you to work in the Loading Room where the presents are loaded all day for Santa to take on his Routes. There are no other Elves to help because they are ALL off fighting the Gremlins that are running lose at the North Pole.
When you enter the game, the presents will start moving along conveyor belts. Your job is to grab them, and use you magic to toss the presents into Santa’s Toy bag.
If a Toy falls of the edge of the table and hits the ground, you will lose one point of Magic. If you lose all of your Magic, you lose the game.
Gremlins will occasionally enter the room on one of the conveyor belts. They love to destroy Christmas toys. Gremlins will try to steal presents from Santa’s bag. If they get to the edge of the table, they will jump up to Santa’s toy bag and steal a present. If they steal too many presents, you will lose some Magic.
Thankfully, Magic items are also coming on the conveyor belt to help you. Use these items to aid in your mission to save Christmas, but the effects of each do not last long.
Stocking of Speed – this will grant you extra speed letting you get the presents faster.
Magnificent Magnet – this magnet will make it easier for you to put presents further away from you, into Santa’s sleigh.
Super Star – touch this item, and ALL the presents will be put into Santa’s sleigh.
Crazy Clock – touch this item and time will be stopped. Letting you catch up on your important work.
Magic Candy Cane – touch one of these, and you will get some extra Magic, and a full tummy.
Sentry Snowflake – the snowflake will keep guard over you, looking for gremlins. If one comes out, the snowflake will remove the gremlin immediately.
Each shift will become increasingly more difficult to complete.
If you manage to survive all 24 shifts, you will win the game, and Christmas will be saved.
