February: Leap Year

February is a special month, not only because it has 28 days, but also because every four years it has 29 days; this is called a leap year. But what if we could leap across time and space, and explore different realities and possibilities?

This month we will play games that have time travel, alternate realities, or branching paths as a main or secondary theme. Whether you want to save the world, escape a time loop, or discover a secret, there’s a game for you. Some examples are Deathloop, Life is Strange, Quantum Break, Prince of Persia, The Forgotten City, Returnal. You can also keep it simple and leap around different worlds in platformers.
Time waits for no one, so make the most of this month!

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

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.

Sadly didnt play a single game in Jan. So will set the humble target of 1 game for this month…relevant to the theme as well.

Paranormasight has some branching paths, and I’m already about halfway through, so that should be a good one to finish in February :-)
