    Hi guys,
    I hope you can help me out.
    Back in the days of Windows 3.1(1) we used to have a cool advent calendar program on our family PC and I can't figure out what it was called.
    Unfortunately I don't know much about it.
    There was a spaceman flying around and in one of the doors there was a b/w image for the user to apply colors to it.
    The calendar itself was a snowy house with the numbers being on the doors and windows iirc.
    Also it could be the case that it was a promotional game of intel or a specific printer brand. Not sure about that one as well (I mean that was like more than 20 years ago).
    Would be awesome if you can help me find that one!

    Edit: I think it was this spaceman image:

    but without the background and it was not animated or something ... just that sprite moving across the screen

    Nice site but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be up there. :(
    I'm looking for it almost daily with new keywords for google's image search but can't find it. Argh!

    I've been doing some searches. I found a lot of rare software, but not what you're looking for. I use DuckDuckGo, and I still can't find it. Do you remember how your family got this program?

    Not at all. It was on floppy disk and somehow it was among all other software floppy disks that we had. :(

    I'm still somehow thinking it was an advertise game for Intel or a printer brand but really not sure about that. It's been 25 years and I was very young. :(
    But thanks for helping me!

    No idea what it could be, but good luck finding it. I took a quick look in a few other places, archive.org had a whole 1 thing for Advent Calendars that I found for 3.11, but it looks like this so I assume it's not it:

    :P

    If I had to guess, it probably wasn't some widely distributed program, I wouldn't be surprised if it was like some random thing developed by a guy from a church group or something to try and cash in on the "home computer" craze in the early 90s.

    Some new life in my thread, thank you very much for trying to help me guys! :)
    Yes. But it's not there. :(

    That's not my game either.
    Maybe you're right although it was pretty polished and looked way better than your screenshot.
    May I ask the source of your screenshot though?
