Ho-Ho-Home Invasion is a free festive stealth micro-game, made in three weeks, that we definitely didn't consider calling "Santa Game Solid". Help Santa enter houses, deliver presents, and leave - all without being seen or detected by the automated robots his elves have made to help him train.
This year, due to social distancing requirements, Santa can't undertake his normal training. Thankfully, his elves have crafted a fully automated Santa training area in a disused warehouse - with lots of "houses" for Santa to sneak his way through. Help Santa complete his training ahead of the Christmas period, by sneaking through all five house layouts to deliver presents in record time.
Make your way through fake houses, past fake robot residents, and place some fake presents. Be sure to:

In this non-canon year of 2020, never has it felt more appropriate to send a Christmas game rather than a Christmas card.
When we asked Twitter what everyone’s favourite festive video game is, the conclusion was that there’s just not that many anymore - sure, there’s board games, and party games, but how many actually festively themed video games exist?
Some had fond memories of a time when festive titles on floppy discs adorned the covers of magazines at Christmas - Commodore Amiga games, with Bullfrog’s Psycho Santa or Christmas Lemmings being the favourites. Honorable mentions also go to Bad Mr. Frosty (the Snowman from ClayFighters who appeared on the SNES game’s cover), and Jazz Jackrabbit’s Christmas Chronicles.
“Why oh why, are there not more oddly niche one-off titles that can only be played at a specific time of year?” absolutely no-one asked. Well, wonder no more - the time has come for the return of the one-off Holiday Special.
