Retro Gaming Advent Calendar – 21st December

Now it’s time for the final countdown to Christmas ? these final five games I have played, alot and they are all excellent and festive to boot.

December 21st. Christmas Nights into Dreams ? Saturn

Nights is a Saturn classic, infact a modern day gaming classic and a game that if you have not played you should seriously seek out to enjoy, it’s a bitch at first until you get the controls before it turns into a mesmerising magical adventure.
Anyway what is so special about this Christmas special edition? Well for starters for 364 days a year most of it’s goodness is locked away, it actually uses the clock on the Saturn and on Christmas day it comes alive! Everything transforms into Christmas related objects,  the Ideya captures are now Christmas trees, the world is covered in fairy lights and baubles and collectible stars become bells ringing out a festive peal. The main character himself is suddenly clad in a red and white onesie, while Santa can be seen dropping presents from his sleigh ? all only if you play on Christmas Day!

    Clever idea. I wonder if it's easy to invoke the Christmas day makeover by changing your clock? If not I'd imagine there's a hack of some sort that lets you do it by now.

    I heard you play a different level on new year's eve too.
