We were approached by Cre8ive Websites, LLC to develop a series of online games as part of The Elf on The Shelf 2008 Christmas marketing campaign. The games were to be themed to match the national TV advertising campaign.
We developed 7 games in total including a jigsaw puzzle, slide puzzle and 2 memory games, along with an action game called ‘Count the Elves’ (based on the old fairground Whack-a-mole game). We also developed a hide and seek game, and an activity application called Make a Cookie for Santa where the player selected a cookie dough, and decorated it with different frostings, icings and decorations before seeing it get packaged up and sent to Santa.
The games can be viewed and played at the Elf on the Shelf website.

Hide & Seek game
After a short intro the player switches off the lights and the elf hides. The player then has to guess which object the elf is hiding in or behind. Play then moves off to a new location!
