It's the Pico-8 Advent Calendar for 2019!
This is the main menu for a collaboration organized by a secret cabal of pico-8 merry makers.
Come back on each day from the 1st to the 25th of December for twenty-five different surprises, each made by a different developer! This menu cartridge will link to all of the games as they are released, though the individual cartridges will also have their own threads.
Day 1: UFO SANTA CANDY BLASTER
After an incident at Confection Production Facility 97, thousands of peppermints were launched into low earth orbit. Santa's UFO is tough enough to ram these without taking any damage, and a few solid hits with a gift will shatter these mints into dust. Better get cracking if you're going to deliver those gifts on time!
Smash candies, get coins, buy upgrades, and smash more! Buy out all the upgrades to complete a run... and for the ultimate challenge see if you can complete a run without allowing any candies to escape.

Remember the classic Shockwave Flash snowball fight game called Snowcraft from 1998? 21 years ago! My entry for this year's PICO-8 Advent Calendar is a demake of that beloved Flash game. Huge thanks to @Gruber for helping with the sound effects!
This game uses the mouse. (Sorry, mobile users!)
I tried to make this as close to the original as possible. Have fun! :)
For DAY 5 here's Polar Panic!
Help our poor polar pal to survive through the bad times of climate change.
Hope you enjoy it!

For Saint Nicholas Day, I made a game inspired by my favorite St Nick legend: that one time he punched a heretic. It's a 2-player fighting game, controllers recommended. Enjoy!
Day 8 has just opened. A small musical doodle with an endlessly dancing Santa Claus. Enjoy!
