Another round, another chance. As always, lets also have one eye for the theme. So try to find something with Horror or Mystery tag for your fellow assassin

For Pickers. Just copy paste and complete the data :)

* [GAME#1](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#1-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#1-HLTBTIME
* [GAME#2](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#2-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#2-HLTBTIME
* [GAME#3](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#3-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#3-HLTBTIME
* [GAME#4](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#4-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#4-HLTBTIME
* [GAME#5](http://store.steampowered.com/app/GAME#5-ID/) - HLTB Time: GAME#5-HLTBTIME

  • Please make sure your games are sorted by completion before applying.
  • If you so desire and you have at least 5 unplayed SG wins, the 5 games can be picked out of your SG wins (instead of only 2/5). Just note it in your application comment.
  • Note in your post if you're ok playing multiplayer only games.
  • Same for Early Access (I know some people want to wait for release).
  • When you finish one (or more) of the games picked for you, please post an update by replying to your picker's comment.
  • If the game has achievements, you can link to either the Steam or Astats page corresponding to your progress.
  • If the game doesn't have achievements, please post a screenshot showing your completion.
  • Finally, if you have completed all the games that were assigned to you but want another go at it, feel free to post another application.
  • You can pick for/challenge up to 2 fellow assassins, please refrain to pick more so everybody who wants get a chance at it.
  • You can pick for anybody who has applied and hasn't been given a list yet, unless they specified otherwise (see next point). It is recommended to signal with a "reserved" comment that you're currently picking for that person. This way it'll avoid the situation where you spend time picking games just to come back to somebody's comment 2 minutes prior.
  • Please use the following criteria when picking a list for somebody.
  • Pick exactly 5 games
  • Length-wise: at least 2 short games (under 10h to beat) and 2 medium (under 15-20h). You can use HLTB to check the time, or more conveniently the Enhanced Steam browser extension (it shows the HLTB time directly on the game's steam page). That rule can be overridden by the bottom (i.e. pick 5 short games) but not the other way around, as not everybody has the same time to dedicate to gaming.
  • Pick two SG wins unless the person specified SG wins only, in which case pick only in the applicant's SG wins list.
  • Quality-wise: at least 3 of the 5 games should have a positive (or above) rating. You can use this site to quickly sort games in a user's library by ratings (thanks to JaffaCaffa for the suggestion).
  • Please, respect the applicant's choice regarding multiplayer-only and Early access games, as well as other requests (exclusion of certain genre etc.).
  • Please use the code below to post your comment, it's already formatted, you just have to copy/paste & complete the data.

Do I have to participate in this event?
No, this is an event to help you reduce your backlog. If you already have a plan and don't want anyone to pick games for you, you're free to ignore it.

What happens if I don’t participate in the event?
Absolutely nothing.

What happens if I play all the games picked for me this month?
Still nothing. (You might get a shiny profile badge at some later date. And you can come back for another batch.)

What if I don’t have time to play 5 games?
Don’t worry, one is enough, we’re just asking the pickers to select 5 to give the player a little choice.

One of the game picked for me won’t run on my computer for X or Y reason, what do I do?
If this happens, please notify the picker by replying his comment and ask them to pick a replacement. If the original picker don’t give you an answer within 24h, don’t panic, just leave a comment and we’ll pick one for you. Meanwhile, you could try one of the other picked games if you haven't played them all yet.

I played all 5 games that were picked for me and I want more!
If you have completed all 5 games and reported your completion to the original comment, you can make a new request for another list.

When picking for other people, can I only pick “never played” games?
Not necessarily, you can also pick games that seem to have been abandoned but haven’t been categorized as “won’t play”. No beaten or completed games, or games being currently played obviously.

Why are there so many rules for picking the games? I can’t be bothered!
We’re trying to make this enjoyable for everyone so if you decide to pick games for others, please read and follow the rules. I’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for the pickers too, but if it’s bothering you too much, remember you don’t need to pick games for others to join the challenge.

I’m new here, can I join the challenge?
Yes of course (and welcome to BLAEO). Please just be sure to have your games sorted by progress before signing up for the challenge, to make it easier for your picker.

Aquilla

I’m playing Hades right now, which is totally awesome but exhausting. Please give me something calm to balance it,

Moony1986

I hope those are calm enough :) Also some fit this monthly challenge :)

Let me know if anything should be replaced :)

Aquilla

Looks awesome. Can you just change Bear with me? I only have first episode, I want to catch other two on sale before I’ll play it.

Moony1986

Mh strange I looked in your account and it says that you have this 🤔

But I switched it as requested :)

Aquilla

Thanks - there is something weird with this game and steam. I started to play Silence. I forgot how much I like Daedalic adventures

Aquilla

I finished Silence. To be honest it was a bit dissapointing. Way to easy, and the story seems very rushed.Now I think I will start Syberia. I don’t have high hopes but I wish at least story will be good. I love first two Syberia games

Shortlist

Aquilla

I played and enjoyed all of those games

  • Okami HD - HLTB Time: 33,5h - this is a longer game, but I completely 100% love it. I’m going to recommend it to everyone.
  • The Swapper - HLTB Time: 5h - Nice puzzle platformer. It was enjoyable enough to recommend it
  • Snake Pass - HLTB Time: 5h - You will love it, or you will hate it, but it is definietely interesting gameplay experience
  • Aragami - HLTB Time: 6,5 h - Classic stealth game. Very good in solo, I didn’t like th coop.
  • Candle - HLTB Time: 8h - weird adventure game. Can be quite tricky
Moony1986

Oh I really love this selection! =)

bloudeuedd

I’d like to join! Thanks.

Daerphen

I enjoyed each of those games. Have fun playing

Dr_Robocalypse

I would also like to join if still possible. Haven’t had time to play much recently, but it looks like I am going to have more time in the coming weeks. Looking at my library is scary though so hopefully someone can find something for me haha. Point to note being that I may ask for rerolls of horror games that I don’t think I will be able to get through it alone, being that I likely won’t ask any friends to come over for the moment.

Moony1986

Reserved :)

Moony1986

I selected some shorter games as you are missing more than a week for this challenge. :) Let me know if I should switch anything.

Wintermute

Hello everyone. If someone would like to help me pick 5 games, I would gladly try my hand at them :-)
