I am doing my best to keep this list updated with the latest releases. If I somehow miss one (or more), don’t hesitate to let me know below, in the comments section.
I loved all your Christmas Stories games until this year, what a disappointment. The graphics are poor and do not reflect the quality of previous series. I hope next year will be better and that the story is more in tail with prior ones.
