I finished the entire game(ragequit on the first time playing it tho).Great game but i wish there was something at the end,like some cutscene,congratulation,or maybe even a jumpscare(like many suggested)

1.It's a bit smaller than the "just right" in my opinion
2.Yeah,i was hooked the first time playing it.Like,all those "horrorish" elements,like that note,the dead elf next to the elevator(it was pretty cliche,but i still liked it).It was creepy and yet also curious as to what does this all mean.But in the other half of the game,everything is explained and you have no choice but to be on the side of the rebbelion,where you just take out the guards and get to your goal constantly pressing enter and only have like 4 choices which don't really effect anything.The second time playing it gets bland,since you realize how linear this game actually is.You don't really find out stuff yourself,you just simply go through the game the way it was meant to be,from one station to another.Find out about death-go into the santas cabinet-go to the place with retreated elves-get into the car-get into the rebellion-let the almighty papa tell you everything-join them-fight in a mission-the end.No turning points,no multiple endings,and the choices almost mean nothing.Because in the end,no matter what you choose,you just get sent to the "next station" no matter what,or even simply make you pick the "right" decision afterwards.
To sum it up,it's still a decent game jam entry,that hooks your interest,and then leaves you with nothing.I'm not sure if it was possible to make such game that i expected first in 5 days though,since i never made any text games.I mean,i know that me and EliasV decided to do something too big,and well,i think you saw how it turned out.
Ps:sorry for such big amount of text
The graphics and the soundtrack in this game is brilliant,especially for the game jam.The only problem i had,is,well,idk what to do in it.Since there's a counter of "70 presents left" and a bunch of presents lying on the map,i'll assume that you need to collect them.I have no clue what button do i have to press to actually collect those presents(i tried mouse button,shift etc).I'd suggest to make a some kind of "tutorial" that would tell you the controls.Otherwise,i feel like this game might be the one to win.
