October: Oct-over

What do you fear more? Horror games or failure?

Theme 1: Horror

The traditional October BLAEO theme!

Theme 2: Game Over

Let's finish those backlogged roguelite and roguelike games (over and over again).

You can use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep track of everyone’s progress, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!

Name | Achievements obtained | Playtime | Status
:-: | :-: | :-: | :-: | :-: 
name of game 1 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
name of game 2 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
name of game 3 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
TOTAL: | achievements obtained | playtime this month | Number of games finished

Have fun!

Theme song


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?

What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.

I don’t have any unfinished games!
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.

I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.

Gosh I mean I can get why it has the horror tag but I cant look at costume quest and see horror. Good luck with the games, you always made a huge list!


Haha it’s still more fitting than Hentai for the Disney games ;)

Tbh the games above are from Challenge Me, PAGYWOSG and my HOG Challenge, so I would’ve played them all anyway. But I have chosen already two more games which would be exclusively for the monthly theme. Let’s see if I have enough time for them in the end ;)


you know after I did my hentai disney game I went back to the tags and they removed it. I got in there right in time!
You do so many games everywhere but I know you do a good job at playing them. I will join in this theme I’m gonna play walking dead for the zombies. Plus I like horror theme month cuz its always funny to see what games apparently have the tag!


Hmm ok, let’s see… maybe I’ll actually avoid playing roguelites for once and focus on the horror.
