September: Back to school

This month we're going back to school.
We're encouraging everyone to play games that take place in a school setting or games that involve learning.
It's time to hit the books and level up your gaming skills.
Don't forget to show off your report card at the end of the month!
Have fun!

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

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

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 - 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.


I suppose not participating in this one while trying to wrap up my reading backlog would be a crime so…

(Also, don’t wanna spam the massive picture in here too but relevant recycled meme)

‘Her Story’ follows the theme of the month. In that, the suspect is interviewed, the interview is analysed and one learns more about her and the case.
In ‘Going Under’, you are an intern at an oppressive corporate.
In Lost words, you learn to do magic with common words.
For Limbo, you learn with every hurdle how progression through the puzzles work. Failing again and again till you see the logic behind the level.
