In the lead up to Christmas we’re checking out as many holiday themed games, DLCs, or in-game events as we can so that you know how to get your festive spirit on in true gaming fashion. In the last piece we looked at Feastivus in Plants vs Zombies Battle for Neighborville, and now we’re checking out some Christmas pyjamas in Two Point Hospital. This Christmas content is quite small, but it’s definitely of note because of the way you acquire it, and how much that’s in the spirit of the season.
The Two Point Hospital Jingle Jimjams are pyjamas that players can dress their staff up in, should they choose to do so. Whilst there is obviously a Christmas outfit, causing your doctors to make some very serious diagnoses whilst dressed as Santa Clause himself, there are also some other outfits in the pack. These outfits are all themed around the games within the Yogscast Jingle Jam Humble Bundle, and there are loads of them. This in-game content might cost more than you’d want to pay for it, but it can also cost as little as you want to pay, as I’ll explain shortly. I think that this in-game content is a brilliant way of getting players into the spirit of Christmas and caring for others, and it’s definitely worth getting.
Yogscast Jingle Jam
The Yogscast Jingle Jam is a month of solid livestreams from the huge personalities at the Yogscast. Not only are they providing high-quality entertainment, they’re doing so for no personal gain whatsoever. Donations made to the Jingle Jam come in the form of purchases of the Yogscast Jingle Jam Humble Bundle, which is a collection of games that unlocks over time. You can purchase the bundle for as little as you want, but if you pay £23.09 or more, you’ll gain access to 20 different games, with a new one unlocking every day. Once you’ve purchased the bundle you can access all the games as they’re unlocked, you don’t need to pay more to get the extras.
At the time of writing some of the games of note in the bundle include a 70 percent discount for Two Point Hospital, an incredible little game based on the equally incredible Theme Hospital, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, a game about beating the crap out of medieval soldiers, and Invisible Inc, a beautiful turn-based game about breaking into corporations and stealing their secrets. With 16 more games and discounts to go, this bundle is easily worth the money, particularly because 100 percent of it goes to the listed charities.
Don’t be a Scrooge, and think about someone other than yourself this year. Even if you give to charity all year round, and do a special gift at Christmas, consider buying this bundle, even if it’s just for the great deal on the games.
