Santa But…

In Santa But… you play the role of one of many Santa’s but… there’s a catch. You have a specific trait that makes you different from the more traditional Father Christmas.

A game of Santa But… takes place on Christmas Eve inside a family home. The aim of the game is to find a way into the house, search the house for clues as to who your assigned child is and what they want for Christmas and leave them their ideal Christmas present before they wake up.

At its core, Santa But… is a bizarre detective game where you hunt for clues around a house to find out what the children who live there would like for Christmas which is made all the more difficult by your distinguished trait.

So, which Santa will you be?

Maybe you’ll be Santa but…

…you have crab claws for hands.

…you are a goose.

…you are made of a thousand sentient bees.

…you are a living snowman.

…you turn into a polar bear when you are startled and can only turn back into a human when you eat Christmas food.

…you are a two-foot tall elf.

Or maybe you’ll be a completely different kind of Santa!
