  1. 05. Mandagon Free 2D platformer/exploration thing on Steam that I've been meaning to get around to playing for approximately forever. It looks absolutely gorgeous.
  2. 04. There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension Something a little more light-hearted! There Is No Game starts off as daft experiment, in which a game actively tries to stop you from playing it, before something goes wrong and you are transported to a variety of other game-worlds. These must be traversed and overcome (and frequently completely broken apart) before you can get back to where you started and, er, not play the game? It does a good job of being knowingly very stupid and convoluted as a homage to old puzzle games, but also doing some fun fourth-wall breaking throughout - a
  3. 03. Hello Charlotte Episode 3: Childhood's End I mean I don't even know where to start. This game is a walking nightmare of intense paranoia and unease and confusion. I adored it but I still don't really know what just happened during much of the four hours of my life that was devoted to it. When you think you've got a handle on things, it turns out that you actually don't have a handle on things at all.
  4. 02. Hello Charlotte Episode 2: Requiem Aeternam Deo More RPGmaker nightmares. Ages and ages ago I played the first Danganronpa game. While a lot of it focuses on solving murder, you also spend a lot of time traversing a deserted and unnatural building. On occasion the antagonist will just appear out of nowhere. He's not scary and it doesn't make you jump, but the feeling of traversing the abandoned corridors made my skin crawl, and reaching a destination without incident was enormously relieving. I hadn't felt that way about a game in years until I played th
  5. It's April, and I've finally completed a game. I'm sure there was something else earlier in the year but I've completely forgotten. Good Circumstances have led to me getting a lot of gaming time out of Things That Never End - jumped back into Hearthstone, a private server for Phantasy Star Universe, and I spent a bunch of time playing Magic. Anyway: 01. Hello Charlotte Episode 1 Latest in a line of RPGmaker extistential nightmares. Notable for having HP and MP bars but also not a single battle sequence. That's not to say you won't die; you'll die a lot, by o
  6. There's about 200 20×20 puzzles in Miku Logic Paint S so it will keep you going for a while!
  7. RaceDieRun is 89p in the sale, I really enjoyed it when I got it free from one of those insane Qubic Games giveaways.
  8. Might as well get the thread started now. Lots of cool new stuff in the video - that ink longbow looks amazing! Things we know Character creation: - There are more skin tones and eye colour variants compared to Splatoon 2 - Hair is stylable now? This is clearly Very Important - Creating a buddy? It's a small fry? I hope we can give it a mullet Story and location: - Inkopolis Tower is stuck in the ground? Either that or Callie and Marie's promo trips have gone a bit wrong: - There's some kind of new city, serve
  9. Gone back to this and am still really enjoying it (only stopped playing due to the Christmas glut of games). Turns out you can set a "focus" for your deck which apparently increases the likelihood of receiving cards for that faction, which helps streamline things. So much so that I just made it to the last stage for the first time with what I felt was a really good deck (the card that hits for the amount of money you have, when upgraded so it hits twice, is Quite Busted) and oh my fucking god you've never seen a bruised ego like mine right now
  10. This was stealth-released on Switch at the end of the year and I've been having a lot of fun with it - I'm about 11 episodes deep now and am really excited about some of the gimmicks for the later episodes. Difficulty also seems to be pitched quite well, I'm not getting many floor 1 wipeouts and am usually making a good bunch of progress and mainly dying to my own poor decisions, as it should be. It is definitely more lightweight than something like Slay the Spire or One Step From Eden, both games that I've enjoyed/am currently enjoying, but I feel like there's totally a space in t
  11. Nah it's fine, I am a massive pain in the arse but if it's that much of an issue I will leave it. It is a bit of a shame though as it does discourage people from posting their votes until right at the death, it's not unreasonable that someone could discover a gem at Christmas but not know how good it is until after the PITA deadline has passed. Given how much work is involved in collating things like this though I don't blame you for getting some of the prep done in advance. (psst hey you guys Dicey Dungeons is really good)
  12. I received this in the Muk Secret Santa and have been enjoying it a lot. It feels like a mix of Slay the Spire (in as much as you have a "deck" and acquire cards for it as you progress, along with relics), Into the Breach (in that your positioning is very important) and the active time battle system from the Final Fantasy games. Trying to comprehend everything is absolute madness, it throws you in at the deep end right from the start and there is just so much to take in, it's very difficult to know whether a card that fires off projectiles diagonally is going to be useful or if a l
  13. So how much of a kicking am I going to get if I want to put Dicey Dungeons in at 5 on my list? Justification: bought it with Christmas eShop voucher...
  14. SLS Unsanctioned premieres at 1700 today
