Relax. These New Indie Christmas Games are the Stress Relief You've Been Looking for - December 2021 - Odd Nugget

Contents

Christmas is a time to kick back, relax and enjoy as much food, fun and frustration as your body can handle.

Battling cold and crowds to get the gifts you're after is worth the effort.

Though I don't think hitting the mall is anywhere near as much fun as it used to be.

Anyhoo...

Each of the Christmas games in this article are enjoyable enough to merit a bit of your time...
