aka. The backlog is lava
Busy and stressful month IRL, so not much has been done except games that can keep my brain distracted. Hence a lot of roguelikes and a lot of Terraria. Also, there were too many good bundles recently and coupled with the sales… my backlog got fed way too many games. I hope you’re all doing ok and staying fresh and safe.
ABC Challenge 2.0 Progress (2/27)Finished this month: 0
The devs added some content so I revisited Hidden Folks. I loved the new music related levels, still strongly recommend this game. Note that now all the DLC content is included in the base game.
A great addictive deckbuilding roguelike. A bit similar to Slay the Spire, but different enough to make it very addictive on its own merit. Bought it during the summer sale and put quite a lot of time in it this month. Will definitely play some more in the future.
If you haven't heard about this Devolver promotional game, I recommend you give it a try. It's free on steam and it's fun to play and well thought for an alternative to presenting their new and upcoming stuff since all the conventions this year were cancelled. I hope more publisher would do something like that.
Another great roguelike I got during the sale, the latest Early Access from Klei arrived to Steam. It's already really good and enjoyable as it is, even though it's still worked on. A lot of story and choices to make, deckbuilding combat and "negociation" and overall great style. What more can I say except that it's really good.
Yet another roguelike from last year that I've been playing on and off in the past months and I finally manage to beat. I love the very minimalistic art style, the deckbuilding mecanics and the progression system. It's also interesting that the theme of this game is about a little girl's inner struggle with mental illness, which is original enough in those kind of games to be noted. Another recommended game.
