Saving the world, one game at a time! Hiroko’s profile


My first BLAEO post!

I don’t usually get much time to play games as it is, but since I have been granted a place in the BLAEO community, I will try my best not to disappoint!

…which means I will post whenever significant progress happens.

Today, I present to you…

Completed

Glass Masquerade - I have wishlisted this game a while ago, after finding it randomly on Steam and seeing the praise it received in the reviews. Fanatical featured it as their Star Deal on the 30th of March, so I snatched a code for myself and have been playing it until today (April 3rd). It is possibly one of the most aesthetically pleasing games I have encountered in a while and easily a favorite. The puzzle concept is unique, the music and the visuals - relaxing, in a way.

Lexica - An interesting game I got in a trade. Word puzzles based on correct vertical and horizontal letter placement. I’ve only completed the first Easy pack, but I must admit, they were already quite a challenge for me.

Twickles - A game that somehow found its place in Indiegala’s Leisure Suit Larry bundle, which is how I got it in my possession. A puzzle game based on simple rules of rotation. I might have completed about 10 levels, but it’s still really challenging to aim for the least rotations on some of them.

Zoombinis - I never would have thought this game was on Steam! Granted, it’s a 2015 remake, which was hard work for the developers to make and release, but nonetheless, it’s here now! I picked it up thanks to Fanatical’s Indie Heroes 3 bundle. I can faintly remember playing this game a good 8, maybe 9 years ago and having nightmares/sleepless nights thanks to it. Now that I’ve seen what it’s like now… it’s not that terrifying, though the ambient sounds in the background and the sounds made by the Zoombinis don’t sound the most pleasant either.
