It's that time of year again!

Open the door, scratch the foil and pull the chocolate out to see which PMD-E NPC is revealed. The doors will open on or past the corresponding days in December, so check back to uncover them all!

If the windows are already open, don't open on the correct days or act strangely please update your Flash player and check your system date is correct.

I'm really pleased at how this turned out, even if I spent way too much time on it. I unexpectedly learned a lot about good programming practice and techniques. Here's last year's calendar as a measure of how far I've come in terms of art, aesthetics and programming ability, though the real developments are hidden away in the code.

I had a real blast playing with this! It's really fun to work with and it was fun trying to guess who the NPCs where before you took out the Chocolate. Shade was easily the most difficult.
This is a lovely Advent calendar, lovely job!

...I'm far too easily amused. I keep putting the chocolates on Huey and Rose so it looks like Brock's being chased by demonic chocolate-headed NPCs. :XD:

This is really awesome, but it's kind of hard scratching the card when you can't see where the cursor is. @A@

The chocolate is in a single colour until I click it-- wait, it disappeared! And... I don't know where the chocolate has gone... :noes:

Maybe re-loading... :phew: it worked.
