Disney’s A Christmas Carol – the game, not the movie – is being released to tie in with the movie of the same name and to be available to gamers just in time for the holiday season.

Of course, pretty much everyone knows the classic Christmas tale by Charles Dickens called A Christmas Carol. And almost everyone is famili8ar with that grumpy old character named Scrooge. Well, Disney’s A Christmas Carol for Nintendo DS draws a whole lot of inspiration from the original Dickens story, while the movie seems to be a bit more interpretative.

Bah Hambug

The game lets you explore the supernatural adventure that Scrooge himself takes when he’s visited by three extraordinary Christmas spirits during the holiday season. It takes the form of a point-and-click adventure, kinda like a hidden object, mystery or puzzle game. You play the role of the Hand Of Fate and go through the story by exploring each scene and interacting with the characters to trigger the next event.

All the in-game dialogue and descriptions are actually written in that old-school Charles Dickens style. Plus, there’s a ton of additional content that comes with this game, including the full Dickens novel in its original form, an advent calendar, a sing-along collection of five Christmas carols, 14 unlockable mini-games and a “pass the DS” multiplayer feature for family play.

In order to make an impressive game do the following. Use anime or COD 3D style graphics. Don't use graphics bellow a Wii U capability  (Especially in a generations with flat screens) Use lots of data such as voice and Music and sound effects. I mean use allot, because you don't want repetitive sound effect playing every 3 seconds. The more VOICE DATA the more cool your game will seem as long as it's GOOD voice acting. Make the multiplayer as innovative as the story. Most developers fail to do this. I mean just look at Halo 4. If your game has good physics and gameplay and challenge and ONLINE PLAY then those are feature you won't be lacking. Also add in your own EXCLUSIVE features that will make a big attraction to your game if it's actually good. Don't forget to advertise the game.
