Traditional Christmas cards are usually the order of the day throughout the festive month of December, but at Synseal this year it’s more about arrow keys and fun-filled evil trolls thanks to the system supplier’s new online game “Christmas Rescue”.
Last year Synseal took the bold decision to send seasonal greetings via an online game instead of posting hundreds of boring old Christmas cards. Known as “Fat Santa”, the entertaining pudding-munching game proved to be a huge success throughout December with many players across the industry competing with one another, each of them trying to rise to the summit of the Top 100 league table – published online, this pecking order changed constantly due to the game’s popularity. Nick Trueman of Direct Window Supplies in Swindon eventually proved victorious, racking up an awesome total of 162,250 points and beating over 600 posted scores along the way.
This year things are a little bit different. While league table bragging rights will remain the same, the game itself has changed. Titled “Christmas Rescue”, evil trolls have imprisoned Rudolf, Fairy and Santa. As one of Santa’s trusty elves you must navigate your way through moving candy canes and hat-popping snowmen, all the while collecting Christmas puddings for energy along the way.
So why not strap on your green boots and see if you can top Synseal’s leader board, even if only for a brief moment? Watch out for this seasonal slice of fun, which will be e-mailed to a sizeable database of industry contacts very soon.
