January’s Stats

aka. A good start for a brand new decade.

Hello fellow Assassins, how has your january been? For me, a lot of great games have been played, and added quite a few to the backlog too, resulting in a super small victory to start the year but a victory nonetheless. I’ve shortened my reports and even considering cutting them off completely in the future, but feel free to ask any questions if you wanna know more about a specific game I’ve been playing. I hope you’re all having a good start of 2020, until next time.

Hidden Paws Mystery

3 hours playtime, 15 of 15 achievements

Short but cute hidden object. More of the same compared to the first one, but without the motion sickness due to the camera, so a great improvement. Looking forward to their summer themed one.

A Plague Tale: Innocence

13 hours playtime, 25 of 35 achievements

Such a great game, both naratively and visually. I really loved this game despite a few annoying things, a strong recommendation. Especially if you have the xbox PC pass, it recently been added to the list of games.

The Gardens Between

2 hours playtime, 17 of 17 achievements

Such a beautiful puzzle game. It's pretty short but it's so pretty with great puzzle mecanics. Recommended to all puzzle lovers, a real eye candy.

The Stillness of the Wind

3 hours playtime, no achievements

More an experience than a game itself, but you should try it for yourself as it's really short.

Please, Don’t Touch Anything

1 hour playtime, 11 of 15 achievements

It gave me more of a "try anything with that object" feeling than a puzzle game, and after a while I needed to check a guide for the few endings I was missing. Interesting experience.

Gorogoa

1 hour playtime, 8 of 11 achievements

Another beautiful game with clever puzzle mecanics, another strong recommend for puzzle lovers.

Yoku's Island Express

7 hours playtime, 17 of 31 achievements

A really fun pinball plateformer (yes, you read correctly. They define it as a pinballvania, and it's pretty accurate) with lovely colorful graphics. I loved it more than I thought I would even though it had been recommended this game, as I, in turn, recommend it to all of you.

A Long Way Down

5 hours playtime, 5 of 9 achievements

Still in Early Access, this game has a great potential as an addicitive roguelike deckbuilder. It already has enough content to be enjoyable but is not fully finished yet, as the team is aiming for a full release for May-June of this year. Keep an eye on it if it's your sort of game, it could be a really good one.

Yeah, I cut mine off completely. I still read lots of reports (especially from my “starred/favorited” posters like you) but I have little enough gaming time that I feel like I don’t have time to post. But I enjoy reading others’ posts.

I haven’t played any of the games you’ve played this month (other than Kind Words off-Steam DRM-free) so I don’t have a lot to add. Plague Tale is one of my top wishlisted games, so good for you for playing it! :D

EvilBlackSheep

I totally agree, writing reports take so much time and there is just so many things to do IRL that it then cuts into gaming time. I love reading other people’s posts but I have less and less motivations to write my own :sweat:

A Plague Tale is really great, even if it has some little defaults overall it’s well worth the play. It’s also beautifully made (even tho it depicts some really gruesome things).

+1 for the note I still like reading your reports…
seeing as how I’m not really active on anything anymore its nice to still feel like I’m informed with these idk.

A good start for a brand new decade.
