"Santa now evil. Bad bad bad. Me RED finds him. RED saves Christmas!"

RED is an action-survival game where you play RED, one of Santa's little dark elves, who must go deeper and deeper to find Santa while avoiding all the deadly mechanisms he left behind.

24 days to save Christmas and as many rooms to survive.

There will be blood. RED's blood.


This game was made for the LynXmas 2020 game jam, a 15 day long game jam without final rankings for no other purpose but to have some fun and make some Xmas cheer! All entries into the competition had to be 32KB or less.

How to Play

The game is pretty simple to play. Just avoid the deadly saws, find the key,unlock the exit, and descend into Santa's dungeon. Press A or B to run. Yeah running might be a good idea.


- version 1.02: RED - Green Special Edition. A slightly new version made for the RED competition. Read more about the contest in the devlog post.

- version 1.01: Fix a few impossible levels due to an error in design. Also fixed a minor bug where you could start moving during the level presentation.

¿final version?

no, coming later this year... physical release as well :)

Groovy music. The first levels are trivial, but it starts ramping up much faster after that. Nice.

Another super cool game for the Lynx, nice spin on the Xmas theme!

Nicely done!  Didn't get through all the levels yet, but it's very fun!
