An enhanced version of Last year's Santa's Search this time having 360 degrees of motion and a functional automap. For those who don't remember, the evil gnome has chased Santa's reindeer out of the corral and Santa must find them so he can deliver presents.
This month’s release is a Christmas game so it will be released closer to Christmas. I am thinking that the Winter solstice would be the ideal release date so will see you then.

It was ported from the original Flash version and is part of my HTML5 Games using Create.js eBook which is in development.
Pent Up Anger is an original board game based off of mechanics found in some other board games I played as a kid. It was created for my Flash Game Development book so has now been ported to HTML5 for my HTML5 Games using Animate CC eBook. While it will be a while before my blog reaches this game, the anger aspect of the game seemed ideal for this month.

Coffee Quest has started being upgraded but I am not as far along as I would like so for this month I am just releasing the beta. I hope to greatly improve the automap and the quest item display. Once that is done the engine I am developing is also going to be used for the updated CQ2 and CQ3 games!

Not my greatest game, String Along is an arcade game and is a level-based variant of the classic game Snake where as you eat food you grow in length. My subscription to Creative Cloud expired before I could get around to optimizing the game, and have no plans on going back to Creative Cloud as I can do everything I need in Create.js.

As the towel day game is not being released until late in this month, I have released an HTML port of Four in a Row. The original version was my first Java game and in 2010 I did a preliminary version of this game as my first Canvas game. This version fixes some AI bugs while implementing animation of chips.
