RPS Presents: An RPS Christmas Present

Hello, lovelies. We’re all off gorging ourselves on meat or soy-derived meat substitute, but – honestly – we’re still thinking about you. So here’s the thing: we made you a present. Yes, made. And when we say We, we actually mean RPS chum James Carey, who really does like making games about Horace for some reason. Anyway, this year he’s made the awesome Horace’s Cold Snap, with “art” by “John”. It’s a really clever name for the game, as you’ll see. It’s Windows only, sadly, but that doesn’t mean we hate Linux. And even you’re okay, Mac guy. Yeah: that’s the Christmas spirit.

Anyway. Have a great holiday. And let’s make next year even more double-plus fantastic.


  1. Shockeh says:

    Merry Christmas, RPS folk. :)

    • jezcentral says:

      And Merry Christmas to you too. Shockeh .

      And all of RPS. Dog* bless us, everyone.

      *Horace, obviously.

      • welverin says:

        Dog? Why would you call a bear a dog?

        • Gonefornow says:

          Surely Horace will forgive this mere misunderstanding, it’s not one of the seven deadly typos.

          • Jockie says:

            Curious as to what the seven deadly typos are? ‘rouge’ must be up there, as in ‘it’s a rouge-like’.

          • RARARA says:

            As is ‘RPG’ when describing any game that doesn’t have spreadsheets.

      • Thirith says:

        Is a wookiee a bear?

  2. Ignis says:

    Merry Christams!

  3. BLACKOUT-MK2 says:

    Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you have a good one!

    • Fenix says:

      As a non-celebrating person, Christmas is basically a net negative for me because I don’t get to go “MERRY CHRISTMAS” and be wildly inappropriate and awkward for this period.

  4. Daerth says:

    Happy Christmas to all ! :)

  19. DigitalSignalX says:

    Happy Christmas! Wait, what blasphemy is this? A .75 peggle game that launches right into settings, supports multiple monitors and didn’t crash once? This simply will not stand.

  20. dethtoll says:

    I hope you guys are having a better one than me. Not hard unless you like, die or get cancer or something.

    • Fenix says:

      aw :( Feeling like shit sucks, but feeling like shit while everyone else is festive is even worse!

      I hope you will feel better soon, dethtoll

      • dethtoll says:

        Yeah my car smashed against a wall in an accident last night. I’m okay, but my car isn’t.
