How's your first year been as mayor of your own city in Pixel People?

Pleasant, I hope. Even if, well, it hasn't, your Pixel People life is about to get a whole load more delightful.

That's because LambdaMu Games and Chillingo have just rolled out a Winter Wonderland update for Pixel People.

So, there are new genes, new buildings, new decor, and new landscaping options to help you make your snowy city appropriately festive.

Alongside the snow, there are new activities, such as helping friends keep the Grinch out of their towns and collecting reindeer to foster the festive spirit.
