FAQ

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?
Nothing.

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 - I’ve beaten everything I’ve started.
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.

Hey! I took a quick glance through your unplayed games list, here are some that I think might be a good fit!

Behind the Frame, Deiland, Druid, Grow: Song of the Evertree, Hokko Life, Hustle Cat, Meadow, My Time at Portia, Ori and the Blind Forest, Rakuen, Shelter 2, Spiritfarer, Tengami, The Stillness of the Wind, TOEM, Verdant Skies, Wandersong, World’s Dawn

(I’m not super familiar with every single one of these games, so I apologize if any of them are actually a bad choice haha)

Kyrrelin

Thank you very much for the tips! Some of them were also on my mind, but I wasn’t sure if it would count. ;)
Will pick something from the list for sure, thank you again! :3

franplants

You’re welcome! I’m happy to see you picked Spiritfarer, it’s one of my favorite games

Hi. Barely joined the group, so I’m eager to start trying these activities and get the hang of things here.
I’ve been wanting to dive back into Outer Wilds, which I find is a game chock-full of positive ideas and themes. I already beat the core game, so I’ll be focusing on the DLC “Echoes of the Eye”. Athough it seems it might have some scarier parts, I still expect the overall hopeful and positive vibes.

Five Dates was an unintentionally good game for me. As someone who has been out of the dating game for over 20 years (no interest), it helped me see quite realistic responses when answering things more positively than I naturally would, and empathise with different personalities and differences, really enjoyed.
