UK, November 29th 2021 - Hot on the heels of their feelsy, fully-voiced, inclusive narrative adventure debut Shindig, Imaginary Friends Games defy the sophomore slump with the release of Festive Finds: Happy Holidays Calendar on! This advent-calendar-style title features 24 doors for players to open, each of which hides a 'spot the difference' puzzle surprise in a stylish seasonal scene.

Players can choose to open a door per day, or relax and enjoy all the puzzles in one sitting. With no time limits, a chill lo-fi soundtrack, and a beautiful picturebook aesthetic, this cozy calendar offers bite-sized festive fun to help make the cold days merry and bright.

Co-creator Martyn Maillardet had this to say: "After Shindig flew under the radar for a lot of people, we found ourselves in something of a post-release depression. For us, the best way to lift those dark clouds was to get back to making things. We love all the anticipation of the holiday season, and this joyful little digital toy is the result!"

Perfect to play solo, or with friends and family gathered around the screen, Festive Finds: Happy Holidays Calendar offers players a digital cup of winter cheer, and is available for Windows PC for the accessible, bargain price of just $1 on now!
