Author Comments

Open a window each day until Christmas to reveal a lovely image and earn a shiny medal for being a good lil' Newgrounder

Ver 1.1:
- Managed to get the Date & Time API working, so people who reset their CPU clocks are wasting their time.
- Added a few more medals until I got sleepy.
Ver 1.2:
- Added thumbnails to opened windows, so you know what image is behind them (and you can quit looking at the godawful pic that forms the main image).
- Fixed some of the artist names and links. Whoops.
- Switched some of the pics around for Day 12.
Ver 1.3 (hopefully the last major update):
- Will now Save opened windows. YES GET IN.
- Corrected the vertical alignment of some windows.
Ver 1.3.1 - 1.3.3
- Added some dates and a clear button.
- Some guys said they couldn't earn medals. I've added some leeway to the code which hopefully fixes this.
Ver 1.3.4
- Think I'm all done now. Time to enjoy that Christmas Eve beer! Merry Christmas!

**NOTE 1**
You can only gain medals if you open the door on the day. I'm a believer in making medals a challenge to obtain. Plus they're only 5 points, so if you miss a day it isn't a big deal. But watch out for Christmas day ...
**NOTE 2**
Some people have noticed that you can see all the artwork after I update the file. Just clear your cache, and it should work fine.
**NOTE 3**
If you're looking at this at some time after Christmas (January onwards), you're out of luck! (Why, did you think earning medals was going to be as easy as clicking some buttons? Naff off). The only time you can earn medals is during December. This is a Christmas collab, after all.

Great game!, being reviewed by TheGameReviewer101. o3o

Pros: Nice how there are actually medals. Cool looking medals I must say. Very good that if you missed a day, you can't get it. I like that, where you have to make sure you get it everyday.

Cons: It is sort of unfair to some players, who can't get on, for whether there is a punishment, or they can't get on the internet, or whatever. One last thing, is on the fourth, you have a picture with santa in a sleigh with a ton of money in the back, and Romney stickers. I'm not really sure which person you guys voted for, and I realize the voting is over, but it could start another political war, and New Grounds would be in chaos.

Keep making calenders! Merry Christmas!

I would think this Flash is more to do with the art than the acquisition of medals.

Cheers for the review though, and merry Christmas to you, too!

I've been doing this for 12 days now (in fact I'm into the flash advent calendar as well). I'd love to do this for 13 more days. The collab aspect makes it fresh each day, even though not all of the days have been all that great. Hope you DO make a new tradition out of this! I'm also doing a REAL advent calendar where I get to eat some chocolate each day :) I guess I'm just a sucker for advents :P . #1 is still my favorite though :)

One thing though... for anyone who finds this AFTER the date, you should allow the medals to unlock any time the pic is opened, just to be fair. Personally, I saw this under judgement and voted to love it... but not everyne is so lucky.

Hi, cheers for the review. If you like #1, you might get a kick out of #14.

About your 2nd paragraph, I know it's unfair, but in the long run it'd be lame. People would just wait until the 25th and collect 170pts worth of medals - just for clicking through a slide show! I'd rather give people an incentive to treat it like an actual advent calendar, and be as vigilant as yourself.

Loving all the great art! Something to look forward to everyday when I come to Newgrounds!
