The roguelike puzzler Roundguard has received a new update. Version 1.2.0, known as “The Gift Giver” update, adds a snowy new event, treasures, and three new characters.

Here are some additional details about the update plus a trailer:

With the Gift Giver update, three new characters have been added to the dungeon. There’s the Big Freeze, an ice cold frost giant who hits like an avalanche, and the Projectionist, a moody dark elf who wants to explore your emotions. And of course, there’s the eponymous Gift Giver. Players must complete his quests to prove they are worthy of the treasures hidden inside his impeccably wrapped gifts. Along with the new characters come new quests, levels, trinkets, and elite fights.

Along with the new year-round content, Roundguard will also host a special in-game event from December 20th to January 2nd full of frosty flair and festive cheer. The dungeon and all its levels will be covered in snow and denizens will be dressed for the weather. You know what that means: ugly holiday sweaters and pom-pom hats! There will also be two weeks of unique daily challenges using new winter rules: Snowballing, which turns all pots to snowballs that stick to your hero, and Icy Winds, which blast through the levels and blow your hero around.
