Nerd Overload v Christmas Creep: Dawn of Christmas
A downloadable game for Windows
Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Whatever holiday you celebrate, here's my little interactive Christmas Card to you. It's a challenging 6 level platformer where you, as one of the four members of the Nerd Overload podcast and radio show must escape a trap set by the dreaded Christmas Creep (who comes earlier every year). It's probably a little buggy (I ran out of time), but I think it's a fun little diversion and I made it for YOU so enjoy it!
It's free, but if you wanted to donate a few bucks my way I would be eternally grateful-- and the money most likely will go right back into developing more games and content for Nerd Overload!
Controls are as follows:
Arrow keys move, Shift jumps. Beware Sticky keys, you can either turn them off in Windows (you should, it's stupid) or you can customize the controls by pressing ctrl+y at any time. You can set up a gamepad from there too if you really want to go nuts. Escape key will close the game, and alt+enter will grant you the powers of full screen.
There's a secret warp zone hidden in one of the levels too, see if you can find it!
Also if you came here at random and are wondering who/what/why/how this Nerd Overload thing is, well let me direct you to www,NerdOverload.com. It's a nerd culture/pop culture show and website we do.
Anyways, enjoy this stupid game, I spent way too much time on it and make sure to have a happy holidays and everything!
