I've been trying to write a game about Christmas movies for bloody years - I find them fascinating. (Not enough to sit down and watch the damned things, mind you - I have my pride - but the concept alone is enthralling. I've watched The Christmas Prince, and the associated sequels, a couple of times. And that time-travelling one with Vanessa Hudgens. Or was that the one about twins? Anyway. I get the idea.)

Turns out the best way to do it was to treat Hallmark's relentless heteronormatism and reinforcement of Christian, patriarchal norms as a sort of cosmic horror akin to your Cthulhus and your Kings in Yellow, and go from there. So it's a survival horror game, and it's a body horror game, and odds are you won't make it unless you fall in love and embrace the true magic of Christmas.

Cool game! We played this in our German actual play podcast.

My wife has just shown me the Princess Switch movies, they're *ridiculous* and I love them and they've got me wanting to run this game for our group as a little Christmas celebration.

Thanks for all the hard work!

Hi, I couldn't find any info about license - would it be ok if I translated this game to Polish and made a hack of it?


This is simply the best Christmas present ever. Would you allow me to translate it into Chinese? I really want to share this with others!

Same! I'd like to write a French version, if that's ok with you gshowitt?
