Atariage released Stay Frosty for an Atari VCS Christmas

Stay Frosty for an Atari VCS Christmas I wish I had posted this earlier, but Stay Frosty 2 from Atariage was released for the 2014 Christmas season. I believe they were releasing a holiday cart each year beginning in 2003, but stopped. The last one was Stella's Stocking (2007) featuring Stay Frosty.

In 2014, they released it's sequel as the holiday game. from their website:
Everybody's favorite fabled frosty firefighter is back! But so are those pesky fireballs and they're hotter than ever! This year they've kidnapped Santa and some of his helpers, so it's up to you to put out the fireballs and rescue your friends from their fiery fate.

Your first frosty adventure was just a warm-up - now there are all new levels to conquer and challenges to face! Fortunately, you've found some new magic in that old silk hat of yours. Can you stay frostier, fight your way to the fireballs' frigid fortress and freeze those fiendish flames?

I'm a big fan of holiday themed games and Christmas is always a great time to enjoy a new game. We're a few weeks past Xmas, but it's never too late to pick up a cool game. Their games were a unique and awesome holiday creation, since the first one (below) which was a simple animation.

2003 AtariAge Holiday Cart Atariage's first Christmas homebrew - the 2003 AtariAge Holiday Cart It's nice to see they brought back the tradition with Stay Frosty 2. let's hope they do it again next year! The Atari VCS can always use some holiday love in the form of a new game!
