Advent Calendar 2023

We’re trying something NEW this year! BOOK OF HOURS seems such an obvious fit for this, so starting from today we’re running…

๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ„ …a 25-day advent calendar of Hush House! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ

Each day we’ll open a door containing treats in BOOK OF HOURS or the ‘real’ world (you’ll see it on all of our socials [ Twitter / Facebook / Instagram ], and we’ll update this blog daily with What’s Behind Today’s Door).

Most are tasty amuses-bouches. Some are pretty major reveals. A few real world treats will only last for 24hrs, but you’ll never miss anything in-game. Playing BOOK OF HOURS any time in December will give you everything the calendar’s revealed to date whenever in-game winter rolls around. So there’s no stress if you’re ‘out’ having ‘fun’ with ‘friends’. Except, you know. Have a think about your life choices there.

 

Door 1: Seasonal art in BOOK OF HOURS

The next time you’re playing BOOK OF HOURS and winter comes around, you’ll notice some festive cheer sprinkled throughout Brancrug Village and Hush House. For anyone who wants to be left alone like the Weary Detective and his Illustrated London News, there’s an option to turn off seasonal art in the Settings menu. For everyone else, take careful note of Reverend Timothy’s Christmas tree next to the Rectory…

  1. Oh, American websites… went to Etsy because I’ve been eyeing that TTRPG for *ages* but the price has been prohibitive, looked affordable, went through the whole process of logging in and logging in to PayPal etc… then on the final confirmation page it’s like “30โ‚ฌ off, then 30โ‚ฌ delivery and 30โ‚ฌ taxes on top, I know we said it’s 130โ‚ฌ total but actually it’s 200โ‚ฌ because we’re Americans and don’t believe in showing the full price”. Suppose it’s not within reach for me after all ๐Ÿ˜” but I saw that lots of people bought it in the last day so I’m glad the promo/advent calendar gift worked out for you! ๐Ÿ˜€
