Santa But...


Santa But...

A Christmas RPG

In Santa But… you play the role of one of many Santa’s but… there’s a catch. You have a specific trait that makes you different from the more traditional Father Christmas.

A game of Santa But… takes place on Christmas Eve inside a family home. The aim of the game is to find a way into the house, search the house for clues as to who your assigned child is and what they want for Christmas and leave them their ideal Christmas present before they wake up.

At its core, Santa But... is a bizarre detective game where you hunt for clues around a house to find out what the children who live there would like for Christmas which is made all the more difficult by your distinguished trait.

So, which Santa will you be?

Maybe you'll be Santa but... have crab claws for hands. are a goose. are made of a thousand sentient bees. are a living snowman. turn into a polar bear when you are startled and can only turn back into a human when you eat Christmas food. are a two-foot tall elf.

Or maybe you'll be a completely different kind of Santa!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
