2011’s To the Moon knocked our socks off. It was a triumph in interactive storytelling that netted a perfect score from both Gamezebo and our readers. As you can probably guess, that means we’ve been waiting on pins and needles for the next release from Freebird Games. And while A Bird Story is still slated as “coming one day,” Freebird managed to sneak a great little treat into the closing moments of 2013 yesterday: a To the Moon holiday special minisode.

Clocking in at a brief 20 minutes, the story focuses on Dr. Watts and Dr. Rosalene at work during the holidays. You can get this one for free directly from the Freebird Games website, or if you already own To The Moon on Steam, this episode should be releasing shortly as patch to your existing game (though Freebird notes you’ll need to manually open your folder to find/play it).
