Also, this video was amazing. I wish I knew what was in King's box, but oh well. (12 anniversary rings? Bailey's reaction: Where am I going to wear all of these?)

What a surprising pleasant Christmas present! :D
Roosevelt and Bruce are the most normal ones here, though Bino couldn't wait his turn at the end.

Well, we know that King's gift starts with an "F," let's run through the possibilities.

A Fleece-lined flight jacket? Not much use for one, maybe, but it'd be cool.

My guess - A family tree necklace.

I have just one thing to say about this song. Hilarious! I love it! Thanks for doing it, Rick. And a Merry Christmas to you and yours.

But I still have no idea what King was going to give Bailey before Bruno made like the Kool Aid Man and broke through the wall...
And how does Bino think that Bruno will work as a pony? He bearly put any thought into that at all

What a delightful and unexpected Christmas present, Rick. Hilarious and adorable all in one video package which must have been a barge-load of labor!! Merry Christmas to you, all of yours, and to all the fans on this forum. Best for a better New Year, too. Regards.

Ya know, I don’t want to know what Miles and Lucretia were doing with that chicken.

Is this the first version of "The 12 Days of Christmas" with a body count? :?

I'm on Sierra (10.12.6). The app just comes up with a black screen and does nothing.

Ahahah! :D I love this cool idea, great work! :D Actually, I had to look for info and hear the original song, since I didn't know it. :P
Bino is always the usual disaster, but I admire Duchess' patience, uselessly pretending more from him. ;) Eheh, Sasha and Kevin go so well together with the same gift. :P Eheh, you squeaky Squeak, in name and in essence... :D Oh, poor Sabrina, but that's a fault of staying with a dog, accept it. :P Peanut, you couldn't have the five golden rings, but you're throwing too much stuff at the poor Tarot. :roll: Come on, Grape, also during Christmas time you have to be so tough with the poor (and unoriginal) Maxie? :P Uhm, it'll take time for Jessica to get familiar with it. :) Woah! What's to censor between the wolves? That they learned the "dead chicken" trick? :P Natalie is still in love with Satau, and obviously he can't know it... ;) Yeah, let's take example from the roos: for they, everything is simple. :D The musical cats have to play especially during holidays time, and so, Keys is playing the song. ;) Ah! screw you, Bino! You ruined the top couple moment... :| Pff, it's probably you who likes that bear... :P

"Visual Novel Maker" in the RPG Maker series. I believe it's about 50-60 usd on steam. (don't remember, I got it on sale at launch) :D

Dahan wrote:Hehe, it's great! Cute and funny :) A not-chocolate soak sounds pretty nice, actually.

The OSX download version doesn't work for me though (on macOS version 10.13.2). When I run "Game", it opens an all-black window. Under the Window menu, there's a Devtools, and if I open that and view the Console, there's an error:

Uncaught Error: EROFS: read-only file system, open './/settings.vndata'
at Object.fs.openSync (fs.js:663:18)
at Object.fs.writeFileSync (fs.js:1314:33)

Apparently it's trying to write its settings file inside the app's directory, but OSX doesn't allow that; settings need to be written in the user's directory. (Windows equivalent would be trying to write the settings in C:\Program Files (x86)\whatever instead of C:\Users\Dahan\AppData\whatever)
Yeah apparently you have to manually set that option in VN Maker, which I don't understand because the only other possibility is for it to, yknow, not work.

I've updated the OSX package and added a Linux package because someone asked. Dunno if they work yet.

Hmm... Now that I think about it, maybe Rufus got the use of 'Handing a Dead Chicken to the person you Love' is actually part of a Wolf Mating Ritual that he picked up and simply cut out the use of War paint.

Dallas hadn't even picked up the cup before Joey stopped him. I'm sure she's fine.

omg this was so cute, especially the kangaroo couple <3

Also it's been a long time since I've seen a new piece featuring Bino. Can't wait for his antics again man!

And is that a beanbag that Peanut threw at Tarot and is just sitting on her the whole time?

I would definitely pay money if Rick made a visual novel or dating game type thing. Even if not Housepets characters, I bet he'd be amazing at that kind of thing.

My grandfather used to send us a fruitcake every Christmas. None of us actually liked fruitcake, but tradition is tradition.
