Nothing says Christmas like mass suicide, and in the classic video game Lemmings it's up to you to direct groups of the self-destructive rodents to safety.

Lemmings became an instant phenomenon when it originally released in 1991, so developers DMA Design and publisher Psygnosis released a free demo of four levels with a Christmas theme during the '91 holiday season. The demo was such a big hit they did it again in 1992, and in 1993 released the first full Christmas Lemmings game available directly from the publisher. Finally in 1994 a full retail edition hit store shelves in time for the holidays.
