Quick, and sort of interesting, yet a little disappointing, June 10, 2011
Starting out the game, you play a guy that has had a really tough year and is really happy to be a brand new Uncle. In the game, you are getting your brand new nephew ready for the ceremony about to begin. Beyond that, not much else happens in the game. On the positive side, the writing, and the humor used in the game does show potential (Spoiler - click to show) especially the suddenly appearing payphone . But, potential isn't quite enough for me to give this game that good of a review.

As for the puzzles in the game, they are very easy and don't provide much of a challenge. I really think that much more could have been added to this game, especially with (Spoiler - click to show) Santa, the Delivery Guy, the Pay Phone, and even the two babies.

I think the game could be expanded a bit more, and expand beyond the ceremony or even give some background to the character. I would really encourage the creator of the game to expand more.

Or, maybe I'm not too big a fan of Speed IF?

(On a side note, to play the game: click on the link, click "save as" and save it to your desktop, and you can open it from there).
