The lovely Lonely Mountains: Downhill has a Christmas event

Brilliant indie biking game Lonely Mountains: Downhill has announced a festive event for the holiday season – and if you haven’t played it yet, now’s a good time to quickly tell you why.

“Arcade elegance meshes perfectly with a glorious wilderness,” Christian Donlan wrote in Eurogamer’s Lonely Mountains: Downhill review.
