View Full Version : What's with releasing a christmas game in november?

They even poked fun at this in the middle of the game, but I'm still curious why... especially since they're skipping the december episode. Why not just start the season in december, and go from there?

I'm sure it's some kind of clever marketing reason. ;)

Yeah, because a lot of Christmas stuff starts happening in November (as an example, the movie Fred Claus launched yesterday, too) and also because it gives the game a longer shelf life. If we had released it the 2nd week in December instead of the 2nd week in November, it would have only had about two and a half weeks to "live" before Christmas came and then it would be outdated. This way we have six whole weeks to get people's attention (and hopefully sell more copies!)
We always planned to take a break between the first episode and the second episode, so us releasing it in November isn't the reason we skipped December. If we'd released in December, episode 2 wouldn't have come out until February.
