    That IS a good idea. So, @Lucia and @Cat, if you'd like to be 'Emergency Santas', please let me know!

    And if so, if anyone wants to make a second last minute gift for them, I'm sure they wouldn't mind. After all, it is Christmas, right? :)

    OK, Santas! The gift-making deadline is here and guess what? Everyone turned in a gift!! I don't remember that happening before since I've been participating with the Secret Santa. So... VERY GOOD!!

    I'm at work today, but tonight I'll start uploading gifts and such. We might have GMC Christmas early this year. (maybe)

    Gather 'round, kids --- gather 'round,
    Santa Claus has come to town!

    He's come early, bearing gifts,
    each one unique and marvelous!

    One quick link to load them down,
    Once the >Tracker Page< is found.

    Can you guess your Santa's name?
    and will your Santa play the game?

    He may not, but fear that not,
    for this is SECRET Santa, see,
    Two Thousand Eighteen... on the GMC.

    Here's to you with warmth and good cheer,
    Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!!!

    OMG this is soooo cool ! Thank you, Secret Santa ♥♥♥ !

    So my Secret Santa made me a game where you have to grab ornaments for your Christmas Tree, legit use of the physics engine and all ! To fill your entire tree you have to play smart, if the top is filled, grab the falling ornaments with the attached ones and try to guide them through to the bottom. A good trick is to fill the bottom and side spaces first by strafing into the falling ornaments.

    And after that you have to cross a forest without being hit by the falling hail stones because they break your ornaments, to be polite. ^^ You can even play hardcore and let the hail stones fall between your ornaments to optimize your path, but you have to master the swinging physics then.


    This is awesome, love and prosperity to you !

    For now my best score is 9 ornaments captured for 8 ornaments saved ! Almost there !
    Can't find a clue on whom you are though. ^^


    And thank you again HayManMarc for hosting this awesome event !
    Happy Christmas and happy new year everyone, may you forget about doubts and capitalism for a few days and enjoy friends and family !

    I love my gift! Thank you Santa. :) It makes a perfect signature for the holidays. Love the 3D rendered cube with the cool embossing effect and rounded edges. Nice lighting too. I do a fair amount of 3D stuff myself, so I'm impressed with this.

    Have a look at the full-sized image (this is one of three banners). They're quite nice.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    Sorry I'm a bit late with this (mistakenly thought gifts would be given out on the 23rd) but here's your gift @HayManMarc. :)
    Thanks again to those of you who gave to our host~ and I'm sure many others would have if they had the time.

    BTW, I love my gift! Thanks Secret Santa! I actually like my new avatar a lot and the card is awesome~

    EDIT: And BOOM, got my little dude from HayManMarc in my siggy now as well and I love it.

    Here's a cool alternate design for the Cloaked Games logo!

    I need the other marketing to match, so I'll need to update some other graphics first, but this design is quite cool. Gives me some good ideas for updating the logo.

    This is awesome! It's something I didn't know I needed until it was thrown at me. I could use this in all sorts of stuff, like maybe somewhere in the website I'm building. If I had to guess I'd say it is from Alice or Ninety as I know they both have an artsy side. Or maybe Cloaked, or Misu? It's a tough one.

    Whoever it's from, thanks a bunch :)

    Wow, I really really enjoyed my secret santa gift. Thanks a lot whoever made it. Nice to hear a fellow musician here on the forum.
    Introduced me to some cool artists I didn't know about as well.

    Also @Evan Malinowski I feel kinda awkward about putting my name on that, haha I forgot it was "secret" santa, sorry about that! But glad you enjoyed it haha! :)

    I was curious about all the gifts, so I downloaded them all and checked them out (didn't read any of the personal messages though, just because it felt weird to do so). :p I'm not the only one, right? Anyway, lots of really great gifts there, and it made me feel the holiday spirit all the more to see such thoughtful things.

    I actually put my name in my gift too... but it's hidden. ;)

    Ah, it seems I've been found out (by @RollyBug ); if I'm not mistaken, that's the first time someone correctly indentified me as their Santa, so props for that. ^^

    Either way, thanks a lot for my Samta for the gift. ^^ While the logo/thumbnail wouldn't quite work for my game because of story reasons, I still appreciate the thought and effort behind it, and I find it to have really high quality. Actually, I could use a collaboration with someone with such a skill...

    Well, it's a good thing that I know where I can contact the one who made my gift. ;)

    (on a side note, sorry that I'm writing just now; I have been pretty busy around the Christmas period and only now I finally have most of my commitments done)

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was nice and chill with a small bit of the family. :)

    I'd like to guess who made my gift, but I don't really even know where to begin. Either it's from someone whom I've never seen any art, or they did what I did and did something a bit different from their usual, so no one would really guess anyway.
    The most confident guess I could make would be that @GMWolf's gift looks like something from @Ninety.
