Garage Christmas

by StaNov - Compo Entry

TLDR: Everything you need to know is described in the game! Just play it already! :)


Welcome to my relaxing game! You play as a little gingerbread who has to save Christmas for a ... wait for it ... a garage! That's right, the garage is the "One Room" without Christmas decorations. Collect Christmas decorations, jump over enemies and bring the decorations into the garage!

The game is fairly easy and relaxing. If you want a bigger challenge, try to collect the items from the last one to the first one! :) I wanted to add an achievement into the game, but there was not enough time for that.


The game is optimized only for 16:9. Web player in non-fullscreen mode should work everywhere.

The game was developed in front of live audience :) Full development footage is being added here:

Thanks everyone for your support! And LD community for organizing!

The whole experience is magical, and holds together very well. The narration, the graphics, the music, the mechanics. A very nice piece!

Short game but good lovely atmosphere
I really liked the music and voice

Nice and relaxing, I liked it :)
You should tweak the music, though - I could barely hear the final monologue.

Man, the graphics and especially the music REALLY elevated this game. I love how you get more music as a reward for bringing more stuff to the garage. The gameplay is simple and fun as well.

Nice music, really cute story! I would have loved a running animation, the item movement was nice and very smooth! The dog looked so friendly though ):

Very cute game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

I don't think that it fits the theme very well having in mind that you have the whole house at your disposal, it has a very good atmosphere though and is a fairly sweet game in general. Having in mind that I was playing this on Boxing Day it was perfect for Christmas!
