N.O.R.E.D.: The War On Christmas

Submission to Ludum Dare 31: “Entire Game On One Screen”


Ludum Dare submission version:


It’s the darkest years of 1980. The height of the COLD WAR… and war is hell. Only Christmas makes it bearable.

You work the night shift at NORAD, on Christmas Eve, every year, inspired by the pure love of country only a young patriot could truly understand. On the screens before you, the defense of a nation is laid bare.

Intel has recently come to light suggesting that THE RED COMMUNIST ELVES intend to strike back against their God-appointed chief executive, at the time he is most vulnerable: delivering presents to the children of the good old U.S. of A.

Not on your watch.

Not this year.

Not any year.
