After heavy snowfall prevents access in and out of the university, will you and your friends find a way to make the most of your time together or will it end in disaster?
Chapter 1: Snowed In
Winter break is fast approaching! But will you be walking in a winter wonderland... or having a very unhappy holiday?
The gang leave their suite and go outside. It's snowing in Hartfeld. Kaitlyn is excited about the snow because she wants to know what it's like. Tyler has a problem, he doesn't have a gift for Abbie. Your Character can either tell Tyler to buy her a pair of hand mittens, a yellow Santa hat or a bottle of massage oil. Somebody's waiting for you under the mistletoe. The character can either pick Chris, James, or Kaitlyn.
Chapter 2: Snow Worries
The snowstorm shows no signs of letting up. Will you and your friends make it home for the holidays?
If the character chooses Chris, they head for the football field and to his car. If the character chooses James, they walk in the middle of the blizzard all the way through Vasquez's office. If the character chooses Kaitlyn, they go to the library.
Your Character's suggested name is Emily but the player can choose a name for her.
When Your Character wishes Professor Vasquez a merry Christmas, he replies "Bah, humbug" which is exactly what Ebenezer Scrooge from Charles Dickens' story A Christmas Carol uses to say. James also makes a comment about this.
When the player is asked for a name during the same game, the suggested name is Thomas Hunt, a nod to Hollywood U, another game from Pixelberry. Thomas is featured prominently in the Red Carpet Diaries series, starting with Book 2.
