A quick design blurb (I'm Andy Robb, one of the graphic designers for the game!):
This game features the song "Waiting at the End of the Road by Paul Whiteman And His Orchestra" which was recorded in 1924. We felt the song had a Christmas feel which lead to us making it a Santa centered game.
From there, we focused on the legacy of the toys made in the 20s (as that was the first big wave of Christmas commercialization targeted at selling toys to kids) and how those concepts evolved through the decades!
