January and February's Theme: Team Assassin!
Murder is more fun if you have a friend :3
This month we are trying something new.
You're going pair up with a partner to attack a game together in true assassin style.
In light of the duo aspect there are two hosts \o/ (Blue Ϟ Lightning and Ninglor03)
and the event lasts till the end of February!
To participate all you have to do is head on over to the sign up thread and try to find your lucky new friend.
Imagine this, you're dying again and again trying to beat a boss. Maybe your partner has some trick they used to beat it!
Or maybe its a story based game and you just reached a really sad point and just want someone to talk to >_<
I bet your partner is in the same boat!
Guidelines for signing up.
This is the general flow
- Step one: look over any previous applications. If anyone doesn't have a partner yet and has something you want to play LATCH ON AND DON'T LET GO!
- Step two…by proceeding to this step you haven’t found any applications yet but that's okay! - simply make your own including up to 5 games you would like to play or any genres you like. Any genre is fine and you are open to put any specifications or concerns you have there.
- Step Three add your partner in crime on steam if you like and play whichever game you picked at a similar pace. The idea is having someone else playing it will motivate you to do so as well you don’t have to actually be playing it at the same time.
- Step four (optional step) talk to each other about what you thought about the game \o/ you can even write a shared review \o/ (not required)
Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
Can I pick my partner?
Its not against the rules - simply put in your application that you would like to play with them but if they don't respond within 24 hours then just like the challenge me your application goes up for anyone and everyone.
Do I have to provide 5 games I would like to play?
They don't have to be games but ideally yes, you want to provide enough that you'll like whatever you play with someone.
Is this a multiplayer thing?
No, You just have to play the same game it doesn't have to be multiplayer.
I have played a game with one partner, can I go again?
Go ahead - the goal of this theme is to play around with someone while you play your games. And it definitely runs long enough to have multiple tries
Can I have multiple partners?
Ideally not at the same time! But if you think you can handle it and someone's application hasn't gotten a bite in at least 24 hours feel free to jump on.
If I can't find a partner will someone be chosen for me?
If two people have applications similar enough your lovely hosts will attempt to pair you. If no one is found within enough time we will pair ourselves with you :3
I'm shy do I have to add my partner on steam?
*nod* yes its important that you have a way of talking to them about the game you chose.
