Merry Christmas! Secret Medal: Unlock this medal to view its details!

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!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I figured any flash that can make me come back for 25 days even when I am traveling deserves a review. This is defiantly an above average advent calendar. The design and graphics of your gadget is great. The layout makes sense and it contains nice extras, like a volume control for the music and a search for the art in the backgrounds. The technical parts are well done also. The fact that it runs off the server time instead of my system clock's time is a nice way to prevent cheating. Also nice job maintaining the gadget has well. Any problems that come up you address the same day. I'm also impressed by the way you kept up with the reviews and answer any questions people had.

Since the gadget is flawless and of high quality, this deserve top marks.

Finally, I hope you have a Merry Christmas.

You've been coming back for 25 days while travelling?
I think that's a real achievement, good job sir.

Hope you had some good travels, and are having a merry Christmas.

You're interested in doing more art collabs? Sweet! I'd love to have the opportunity to do more, this one was so much fun!

TurkeyOnAStick responds:

I wish people had the drive to host art collabs since it gets activities going. The offputting thing is either the final project is a simple slideshow (which looks like guff) or a something that is horrible to code or design. My favourite art collabs are the Lil José robot game and Clock gallery since they are fun to use for the player.

It's early days for this project, and (as you can tell at the time of writing) it's not quite complete. But I have a good idea about how to tackle a photofit collab, and I'd probably test it out before opening it up to the forum.

By the way, I've been drinking.

Love how this turned out, good job everyone. Hope to be part of more of these! Very fun!
