Santa Claus died centuries ago. His wife—Mrs Claus, stored the power of Christmas in his heart, which is buried in his top-security tomb.

In The Service Of Mrs Claus, you’ll be playing as her most trusted elf. You’ll be going undercover to recover Santa’s heart, and take back Christmas from the forces of darkness.

This is a 190,000-word interactive fantasy thriller by Brian Rushton, and is completely choice-driven. It’s published by the Choice Of Games label.

This is a bite-sized interactive novel, which makes it great for the holidays. It’s only an hour or so, and is packed with Christmas fun.

Mrs Claus is actually a goddess, known as Bast to those in Egypt, Diana in Rome, and Artemis in Greece. She’s been called many things—a hero, a witch, an assassin.

You’ll need to use whatever you have in your arsenal to save Christmas. Whether it’s giant marshmallows, or deadly candy canes.
