Ho-Ho-Home Invasion

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.

ELF-MADE STEALTH TRAINING WAREHOUSE

The year was 2020, and due to social distancing requirements, Santa couldn't undertake his normal training. Thankfully, his elves crafted a fully automated Santa training area in a disused warehouse - with lots of "houses" for Santa to sneak his way through. Who knew this would still be useful for years to come?! Help Santa complete his training ahead of the Christmas period, by sneaking through all seven house layouts to deliver presents in record time.

YOU BETTER WATCH OUT

Make your way through fake houses, past fake robot residents, and place some fake presents. Be sure to:

Tiptoe to be quiet

Avoid training robots

Place presents

Safely escape the house

And most importantly

Be extra stealthy

TRAINING ROBOTS

Make sure you avoid:

Watchers - tiptoe past them when their head is buried in a book

Sleepers - quietly place presents in the stockings at the foot of their bed

And Patrollers - wait until their back is turned before making a run for it!

LEADERBOARDS

Can you be the stealthiest Santa in the world? Only one way to find out - get clocking some scores on the Steam leaderboards now!

Hustomten

'Twas the night before Christmas...

We have all heard the story of Santa Claus. But have you heard the one about the hustomte? Most homes have one and certainly all farms have at least one farm elf. They look like a small person with a long beard and pointy hat and live under your floor or in the attic and other nooks and crannies. The hustomte helps to protect your home from evil and misfortune and tends to the farm’s animals, as long as you remember to put out snacks.

However, if you don’t, bad things will happen...

Will you be able to bring enough snacks for Hustomten before midnight of Christmas Eve?

Features

Before the night starts, the "Wheel of Snacks" is spun to indicate what snack Hustomten likes the most.

Explore the house to find snacks randomly strewn across the floor, and then drop them off at the drop-off spots.

Keep the satisfaction meter from draining—or else it's game over.

Collect snacks faster to gain additional bonus score.

Have you collected enough snacks to place on the global leader boards?

Remember to keep your distance—Hustomten doesn't like when you get too close.

Keep an eye out for Lucky Charms, as they will give you a brief moment of protection.

Beware of snack stealing rats!
