If you need some extra holiday cheer this year, Nicalis has you covered. In collaboration with Studio Pixel’s Daisuke Amaya, they’re bringing us Cave Story’s Secret Santa to PC. It’ll be totally free for a limited time on the following platforms – Steam, GOG and Epic. But you may be wondering what Cave Story’s Secret Santa is all about. Then please read below for more details:

Cave Story's Secret Santa | Presents

In Cave Story’s Secret Santa, players take control of Santa, the Mimiga from Cave Story who lives in the Bushlands. His task is to return all the Christmas presents that were stolen by Chaba. As he tiptoes past the beds of sleeping residents and avoids being seen by patrolling Gaudi, Santa finds useful items, eats delicious cookies and places the gifts under the Christmas trees where they belong.

Cave Story's Secret Santa | Stealth

Santa can push or pull obstacles, turn light switches on and off, pry open ventilator shafts and more. But he’ll have to watch out for hazards and avoid making any noises that might attract attention.

Cave Story's Secret Santa | Cookies

I know, I wasn’t expecting a stealth game either. But it kind of fits the nature of Christmas, what with Santa sneaking around and zipping up and down chimneys. Be sure and check the game out soon if you’re interested. And stay tuned to HPP for more holiday cheer in 2021!
