Will what you decide align with what Krampus enforces?

Every early December another kid from your school goes missing, and rumors on the playground have circulated that it's related to Krampusnacht- the night that a half-goat half-demon named Krampus comes and steals away naughty children and spares the good. But what is it that determines if people are taken by Krampus?

For Goodness Sake is a very short horror text heavy game, focusing on several trolley problem situations. 

While completing the chores around the house, you find yourself reflecting on situations involving the neighborhood kids that have gone missing & ultimately deciding what you think might have been the right thing to do. 

Will you be taken by Krampus at the end of the night like the others, or will you be spared?

Just competed all my 12 days of SCAREmas! Each day has a cluster of Christmas horror. This game was a part of this day!

Thank you for this amazing game!

If you want, you can check my full game playthrough here:

Thank you for playing ๐Ÿ‘น



This game was amazing to play. The atmosphere is perfect. Never could get a good ending though. Maybe I'll try again later, or perhaps I'm just not a good person after all. 

Thanks for playing ๐Ÿ‘น

I had a fun time!

Damn, Krampus is one mean dude, those poor kids :D Loved the concept, gameplay was fun and even though I do not agree with Krampusโ€™ decisions, I really enjoyed myself. 




You did an amazing job with this one, I plan on playing Dead Letter Dept. next year so to see your style in this game caused my brain to short-out. I played this through the Madvent Calendar, and I was so excited to see another one of your projects in this bundle!

Keep up the great work!

Cheers! Thanks for playing ๐Ÿ‘น

The atmosphere was AMAZING, GREAT JOB DEVELOPER!!!

Idk how I found the game creepy yet relaxing.

Made a video

This is a really good game that forces the morality choice here. I kinda wish we saw a little bit of Krampus. But other then that, great job. ... Also who got the other ending? I'm just really curious now.
