A downloadable game for Windows

Play as Saint Nick's dark companion, Krampus, and punish naughty children for their vile misdeeds! Send them to work in Santa's coal mine, and drag the nice children home so they don't catch a cold or whatever.

Happy Happy Krampusnacht is a score attack sandbox. Banish naughty children for +10 points and +10 seconds, or drag nice children to safety for +5 points and +15 seconds. If time runs out it's game over.

I made a fucking awesome gameplay, motherfucker!

What did you develop this game with?

Construct 2. It gives you a pretty good running start with a ton of common game elements built in, like basic platformer behaviors and stuff like that. Great for jams!
