Other Video Game Calendars Are Available

Just ride it out.

The traditional RPS Game-o-Calendar has now become a multimillion dollar spectacle, and I must say I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover who’s revealing the final game live from the crown of the Millenium Dome on Christmas Day. I can’t tell you who they are yet, but let’s just say it’ll be nice to see them, to see them nice and you won’t be bovvered as we all enjoy lorra lorra laughs about a real bobby-dazzler of a game.

But if reading about a lovely game each day is not enough, and you demand a formal advent calendar with numbers to click on and everything, here, some of those independent developers with their headstrong ways have made advent calendars.

The Advent of Indies is a big fancy thing, with each day bringing a new independent gift. It’s kicking off by giving away the Endless Legend soundtrack for free. You can’t eat it, but we can’t have everything. It’s organised by Tri developers Rat King.

Elsewhere, Blueberry Garden and else Heart.Break() creator Erik Svedäng has his own advent calendar. Each day will bring “one little thing”, he says. What’s lurking behind the first door is small but quite pleasant to look at, so I shall be returning daily.

(If you have a pocket telephone or phablet, I always enjoy illustrator Binny Talib’s virtual calendars. She isn’t making one this year, but 2013’s is free on iOS and 2012’s is free on Android.)
