About the Story
This is a game written for the Even Newer New Year's Speed IF. It was submitted some weeks late, though. It is not recommended for young audiences.

Starting out the game, you play a guy that has had a really tough year and is really happy to be a brand new Uncle. In the game, you are getting your brand new nephew ready for the ceremony about to begin. Beyond that, not much else happens in the game. On the positive side, the writing, and the humor used in the game does show potential (Spoiler - click to show) especially the suddenly appearing payphone . But, potential isn't quite enough for me to give this game that good of a review.
As for the puzzles in the game, they are very easy and don't provide much of a challenge. I really think that much more could have been added to this game, especially with (Spoiler - click to show) Santa, the Delivery Guy, the Pay Phone, and even the two babies.
I think the game could be expanded a bit more, and expand beyond the ceremony or even give some background to the character. I would really encourage the creator of the game to expand more.
Or, maybe I'm not too big a fan of Speed IF?
(On a side note, to play the game: click on the link, click "save as" and save it to your desktop, and you can open it from there).
A very short game, consisting of a grand total of two easy puzzles. I got stuck on the second puzzle due to the bad parser ((Spoiler - click to show)"look under cushions" tells you there's nothing under the recliner - you need to "search recliner" instead.) There were a few amusing moments, but ultimately the game didn't feel very enjoyable to play.
The description claims that the game "is not recommended for young audiences"; as far as I can tell, the only reason is a few instances of entirely unnecessary swearwords.
(Note: To download the game, look up the download URL in the Internet Archive).
The game seems not to be able to open.
