Jolly Laughter is a dark and twisted little festive tale that sees Santa waking up naked in a snowy parkland after a very bad night.
Created by (developers of the upcoming Mothmen 1966 Jolly Laughter is a short interactive christmas card/visual novel which tells a very different take of the jolly fat man who brings us presents every Christmas. It starts with you awakening butt-naked in a park one snowy Winter’s morning and then sees you searching for some clothes and then trying to remember what happened last night (and the hundred years preceding it).
Taking around 10 minutes to play through, there’s very little in the way of interaction or meaningful choices in Jolly Laughter, but the pixel artwork is excellent and it weaves a delightfully dark tale. It seems your Santa has been through a lot in his lifetime and his story is very intriguing. It makes for a very different take on the lore of Santa and it’ll make you look at those Coca Cola Christmas ads in a whole new light!
