Hey there! o/
This game is insanely stupid and fun. You basically throw neon pink spears at enemies, with cool music in the background - I’m 35h in and I still intend to play
I really like Lovecraft and whenever I see something with the tag “Lovecraftian” it ends up in my WL and eventually in my library. There are so many of them that I can’t really keep up… The most amazing one I got to play was Song of Saya (which I discovered through Extra Credits channel, here).
Conarium is really closer to Lovecraft’s short stories, it felt more like an adaptation of one than lovercraftian as Song of Saya is. (I’m not sure I make sense :o)…
Anyway! It was great mostly because I got to play a Lovecraft story but it has its drawback too because, you get pretty early in the game which story you are playing and how it will end.
Way, hey and up she rises
Played this one for the first time long ago, replayed it and had fun until… I was going for a ghost run and spent hours on one mission but when it was over I realized I has been seen. No clue when and you can’t know when it happened… In Dishonored 2, you just have to hit escape and you can see your stats as it goes by, not in the first one… I was so mad, I closed the game, still haven’t played it again…
Still, it’s an amazing game and at this point I’m pretty sure it’s known by everyone. But I really like the 2nd game way more. To me, it’s exactly the same but better
December was so rough I didn’t have that much time to play. I’ve played Edith Finch today and yesterday, the rest of the month was just Doom. Got some problems and this + work + uni drove me to a point I didn’t have time for anything else. I’m so glad it’s finally over…
Someone told me months ago I should play this one, he was sure I’d like it. I wasn’t! I was wrong :(
Stumbled upon Fanatical bundle and ended up buying it and damn that was fun. Everything is made to be fun and I had a great time, especially given how I needed to play something light. I’ve never played old Doom games though…
What remains of Edith Finch
Just finished it, few minutes ago. I’m not sure what I can say without spoiling anything so I’m gonna stick to what’s written in the short description on steam and put the rest on spoilers tag
You’re playing a girl going through stories of her family. Each member has its own story, and this is what amazed me the most. Each story has its own style and not one was disappointing. I really loved Lewis’ one. I know I’ve already said this about other games, and I come back to it everytime a new one blew my mind but the more it goes and the more I realize this specific form of art conveys feelings, stories like none other could.
Sometimes I feel like any form of art is missing something (and the less I’m familiar with it, the more I feel it’s lacking), to me, books are missing music for instance. But here, and more specifically with Lewis’ story, it wasn’t the case. How they conveyed the automatism of chain work in parallel with this imaginary world he’s creating, the latter “eating” the screen little by little (I was surprised I didn’t really noticed it until the screen was totally eaten), keeping those automatic movements going on and on, without noticing either. And then when the psychiatrist said it was too late, it hit me like so obviously true. Took some time before bending to get crowned and damn teears just popped out of my eyes and I couldn’t stop it. I know most of those stories are not that sad, but some really hit me. Calvin, Molly, Lewis… but then there was Barbara and it brought up so many memories of my childhood, watching Tales from the crypt and every horror movies, books I could lend my hands on…
This game went straight to my favorite games, I can’t tell how much I liked it.
Thank you so so much U. <3
Hope holidays went well for all of you!
