It's 2013, a new year and new life.
Here at Breakfall, we've seen hard at work promoting Marvin's Mittens and getting it in the hands of the press, Youtube celebrities, bloggers, and more. We're getting astonishingly positive feedback that it's blowing us away. Recently we've been mentioned on one of our favorite Starcraft 2 casters, Sean "Day9" Plott, on one of his Day9 Dailys. This was huge for us and we just want to reciprocate the love.
More importantly, we've been reading every comment and review from as many places we can find. We are actively listening to people and one of the biggest things we agree on is that we want to see Marvin's Mittens on Steam. We would love to be on Steam but it's a massive climb to the top of the Steam Greenlight mountain and the only thing we need are your votes and support. Please go to our Greenlight page, vote us up, and most importantly spread the word. Desura has been great to us but we want to be on Steam as well and get Marvin's Mittens in the hands of as many people as we possible can. We want people to experience the wonder and follow Marvin on his grand adventure to find his lost mitten.

As a Christmas game it's delightful. It's a platformer but with no way to take damage and a very forgiving set of platforms it's extremely accessible. That's certainly a boon because the graphics and sound are perfect for a "family" game and those of us who still like a little storybook wonder from time to time. It's a very bookish art style and the scenery has a great hand drawn style. Combined with the original music score I couldn't help being reminded of watching "The Snowman" when I was still…
