Hello! I’m new here. I have a bundle buying problem and have a huge backlog because of it. So here I am, trying to work on that. I’m also not entirely sure how to make nice posts, but I’m going to try.

Half-Life 2

Animalia - The Quiz Game

This is a very simple game. You just see a photo of an animal and then use the letter tiles to spell the animals name. I played it with my 8 year old niece who enjoyed it. But it is laughable that they charge $19.99 for it on Steam.

Viking Brothers 2

I really enjoyed this. It is very relaxing. Now I want to play more games like it.

ABC Challenge

I decided to start the ABC challenge, which I’m assuming means beating/completing a game for every letter of the English alphabet. So I started with Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders, which seemed appropriate.

I wasn't sure about this at first but then I really got into it. It's not too difficult, but not super easy either.

Other Beaten

I liked Viking Brothers 2 so much that I wanted to play similar games, and it turns out I had one in my library.

Welcome to BLAEO! I’m pretty sure you’ll find a few other people around BLAEO who have a similar bundle buying problem ;)

Nice post, I think it’s perfectly fine. I especially like the splitting in different topics, that adds some “uniqueness” for each beaten game. And by the way, really nice punny choice, picking the ABC murders for the ABC challenge!
