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.

We prepared something special for you: The LMD Xmas event is now live & includes not only christmas trees & hidden presents… Will you find them all to unlock unique customization options? pic.twitter.com/C45xt0fMdo
