THE ENDING MAY SHOCK YOU, THE GAME IS MADE TO MAKE YOU THINK!

WALKTHROUGH HERE:

ERIC'S LETS PLAY HERE:

STORY:
Alfred Robbins is an ordinary man, a kind man, a family man. He works hard to support his wife and son. But things haven't been easy. Money is tight for the Robbins family. Alfred returns home late on Christmas eve, having worked overtime at the post office. His house is looking very bare, with no presents lying under the bare tree. Seems like it will be a very bleak Christmas in this household. But Alfred does his best to make the situation better. He makes do with what he has, wanting to surprise his family on Christmas morning.

GAMEPLAY:
Merry Christmas, Alfred Robbins is a lovely little adventure game. You can walk around simply by clicking your mouse. When the crosshair is red, that means you can interact with something. Any items you collect are shown in a little window at top-right of the screen. Scroll through items by clicking on the arrows at each side of the box. Items can by used by left-clicking on that item. Alternatively, items can be examined (which is sometimes necessary) by right-clicking on them. Moving your mouse up to the top-left corner allows you access to Save, Load, or Quit your game whenever you want to.

 
GRAPHICS:
An interesting style of graphics is used for the characters, with Alfred himself, and his wife, both having large, white eyes. Strong, bright colours are used in the game, giving it a cheerful atmosphere. The green used in the living room matches the Christmas tree, giving it a nice Christmassy feel. I just love the picture of the clown hanging in the kitchen - it's so cute! Also, the dark attic contrasting with the bright main rooms is very effective. It shows a complete change in atmosphere, as the mood changes.

  

MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS:
Nice, gentle, background music is played throughout the game, and is very subtle. Sound effects are rather sparse in Merry Christmas, Alfred Robbins. But then again, not many sound effects are needed. I like the sound of Alfred's footsteps as he walks around the house. The phone suddenly ringing made me jump, and the creepy voice on the other end is very effective.

SUMMARY:
Well i hope you all enjoy: Merry Christmas, Alfred Robbins. The story is well-written, and really makes you sympathise with Alfred - he's trying to the best he can, under difficult circumstances, after all. The game has a lovely twist in it (I won't spoil it for you). Not everyone will appreciate this twist! I Hope How the characters have been drawn. Both Alfred, and his wife (his sleeping son) all have these huge white eyes, with no pupils..

Can someone explain to me the meaning of the ending? I love this game, but I feel like I am missing the bigger picture.

Thank you for taking the time to play.

Did you notice the red dress, white dress thing?
Did you notice the orange cat, the orange pillow thing?
Did you notice the phone call was all distorted to Alfred's ears?
Did you notice the whole attic scene was similar to dying?
Did you notice the part where Alfred said "The Toilet, The only thing that's been faithful for all these years"?
Did you notice the part where Alfred said "The candle today hasn't been burn't"?
Did you notice Alfred's hate for the cat that his wife bought?
Did you notice the knock at the door was by?

SPOILER ALERT



Wow. I got about 60% of that after posting this and doing a bit more research, still, thanks for the reply :)

What I did NOT get was the bit about the toilet. It makes sense now. I guess he just snapped. However, I still have yet to uncover the meaning behind the phone call (which I think is his wife?) and the knock on the door (similar to the [removed]knocking on death's door? idk.)
Anyway, thanks so much for this game. I'll try to show it to my friends, it really deserves more plays.

I really want to tell people every single thing, but at the same time.. I want to leave them guessing and to create their own thoughts & ideas.

The phone call is one I will leave for fans to decide who it was, the knock at the door was by the police or concerned family members, you decide.

I can't thank you enough for doing that, that sort of thing means a lot to me.
