Holidate - a visual novel *Extended edition released!*

The hare was a popular motif in medieval church art. In ancient times, it was widely believed (as by Pliny, Plutarch, Philostratus, and Aelian) that the hare was a hermaphrodite.

I researched this for Easter Panic, hence I call the Easter Bunny ‘it’, since it is a hermaphroditic mythical creature.

Unless of course you want to go down the route of drawing a parallel with Easter and Eostre, which has been done, but at a later point in time.

I like the May Queen option.
It’s an obscure option if you don’t live in the British country side but it’s good because you can play off crazy traditions like morris dancing and the may pole.
(Crazy in the endearing sense.)

(By the way, you linked to the mobile versions of all those pages.)

I’m on sneaking in online time on my mobile …

I wasn’t familiar with La Calavera Catrina but I like her. That could make for an interesting date.


I had suggested Suzy Snowflake but we decided she was too much like frosty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaUBpsn4QjQ

Lots of debate about this.

She’s probably the most obscure suggestion so far.
(And ironically reminds me of a Yukionna.)

I hadn’t bothered thinking about biology, I was just guessing by name and assuming there was at least one male and at least one female.

Interesting to see that it ends up being reduced to the probability of males retaining their antlers into december.

Maybe you could expand into cartoons / comics?

I work pretty slowly as an artist but some comics might be fun to work on sometime. I do want to make more of these little visual novels. Maybe we’ll make something expanded and longer on the Pokitto. We’re still waiting to get ours.

It was a fun experience this game, I was really impressed by how you where capable of putting all that stuff inside 32K. But i do have a question, you mentioned that there was an easter egg. Do you have to activate it in a certain way? I am right now going thru the code but i can’t seem to find the place where it activates :confused:

The easter egg is with Santa’s appearance and how increasingly annoyed you can make him.

Ooh, then i think i already experienced the easter egg.
Is it the one where you get an achievement when you do “something” 3 times?

That’s right. If you have every achievement filled out then you have seen all the secrets.

The game gets over too fast. Would love to see some new characters!

Ya i think that would be a great idea and that you could possibly make it more random instead of the same questions each time
