Every Christmas Eve for more than a century, a mysterious recluse has been breaking into children's homes and leaving inducements behind. But somehow, no one ever thought to ask is... WHY?
World-renowned physician Dr. Antony Darley and his faithful sidekick Mr. Alex Homain discover the shocking answer to this question when they are taken captive while on a polar expedition. But will they be able to escape with their lives?
Dr. Darley and the Prisoners at Santa's Workshop is an irreverent visual novel that's like a cross between Danganronpa and Professor Layton.
It's completely linear, so it contains none of that pesky gameplay that hampers so many other video games! With a length of 48,400 words, it can be read in a few sittings.
I'm an artiste, not a programmer, so this is unoptimized and probably has a bunch of minor, (hopefully non-game-breaking) technical issues. Linux version hasn't been tested.
Regarding the whole "name your own price" thing: Don't feel at all obligated to, but if you're considering throwing me a couple bucks, I encourage you to "try before you buy" and only donate if it meets your expectations. In any event, thanks for checking this out!
